Average Roof Prices
How Much Does it Cost to Install Roofing?
At Choice Roofing Group, we get asked the same questions by many of our customers:
- How much does a new roof cost?
- How much will it cost to repair my roof?
- How much does a roof inspection cost?
- What green roofing options do you offer?
While prices can vary greatly depending on the size, pitch and conditions of your roof, we know general pricing figures are helpful when budgeting for these roofing services. That’s why we feel it’s important to give our prospective customers some general pricing guidelines in an effort to be as helpful and informative as possible. You may find your actual estimate to vary a bit from these numbers for various reasons, but overall these are a great start when budgeting for roofing services. At Choice Roofing Group, we do our best to offer affordable roof prices without sacrificing quality of installation or service.
Average New Roof Installation Prices
Metal Roofing Cost:
Choice Roofing Group installs all types of metal roofing for residential and commercial buildings, including galvanized steel, copper, aluminum, and many more. Unfortunately, metal roofing is perhaps the most difficult roofing price to pin down without doing an estimate. Because of the many different types of metal roofing and their varying thickness and coatings, an average metal roof can cost anywhere from $3.00 to $15.00 per square foot, on average. Metal roofing is a great option for many customers, as it comes in many colors and styles that allows it to be used for both residential and commercial applications. Metal roofing is also popular because of its many advantages, including:
Durability – Metal roofing is resistant to cracking and shrinking, and is able to withstand almost any type of weather conditions.
Energy-Efficiency – Depending on where you live, a metal roof can save you up to 35% or more on your home energy costs.
Environmental Friendliness – Metal roofing is a fantastic green roofing option due to the fact that it is so energy efficient. Many metal roofs are also made of recycled materials, which cuts down on waste. Metal roofing can often be installed over your existing roof, eliminating the need to dispose of your old roof.
For these reasons, a metal roof will often carry a warranty of 50 years or longer. At Choice Roofing Group, we have expert metal roof installers who will make certain your new metal roof is as energy efficient and beautiful as possible. We carry a large variety of metal roofing options, and our affordable metal roofing is extremely competitive when compared to other roof companies’ prices.
Asphalt Shingle Roof Cost:
Asphalt shingles, also known as composite or composition shingles, are probably the most common type of residential roofing installed, due to low cost, ease of installation, and their ability to be installed in a wide variety of climates. They also come in many colors and fire ratings, depending on your specific needs. Asphalt shingles are available in two types: organic and fiberglass. Organic shingles contain around 40% more asphalt than fiberglass shingles, which makes them slightly less environmentally friendly. Organic shingles, because they are paper-based, also are not as fire-resistant as fiberglass shingles, with their highest FM rating for fire being a B. On the other hand, fiberglass shingles typically have a class “A” fire rating, and are waterproof. For this reason, fiberglass shingles are quickly outpacing organic shingles when it comes to the number of homes installing each in the past several years.
On average, an asphalt shingle roof installed by Choice Roofing Group will cost somewhere between $2.00 and $3.50 per square foot. Again, these prices can vary depending on the square footage of your home, pitch of your roof and other factors, but this is a good number to use for budgetary purposes. As you can see, the cost of asphalt shingle roofing compares very favorably to other types of roofing. When you need something that is fairly simple and is an economical roofing option, asphalt shingles are a great choice.
Wood Shake Shingles Cost:
Wood shakes are a highly desired roofing material for homeowners searching for a roofing material that gives a rustic look. Wood shakes are less uniform than standard shingles, and often vary in thickness and shape. They are made by splitting logs, rather than sawing lumber as is the case with wood shingles. The majority of wood shakes produced in the U.S. are western red cedar, although can are also sometimes made from pine, cypress and redwood, and they typically come in 24-inch lengths. Wood shakes can be pressure treated with fire retardants and chemicals to aid in fire resistance and to prevent mold and rot.
On average, a wood shake roof will run between $5.00 and $7.00 per square foot. This will vary somewhat depending on the type of lumber used (again, with cedar being the most common) and the thickness of the wood shakes. It’s always good to keep in mind that a wood shake roof will require regular maintenance – for best results, it’s a good idea to clean a wood shake roof of litter and debris regularly to prevent the build-up of moisture, which in turn can lead to mold. To prevent weathering, you can also apply a semi-transparent oil-based stain to your wood shake roof, and applying a stain that is water-repellant is even better. While these are not absolutely necessary, they will extend the life of your wood shake roof. When deciding on the type of roof you want to purchase for your house, and the amount of money you want to spend on a roof, it’s good to keep these costs in mind.
Glass Tile Shingle Pricing:
Another unique option available to homeowners is glass shingle roofing. Glass shingles can come in 2 types – a more common frosted glass type of shingle that allows sunlight in, almost like a skylight, and a cutting edge passive solar glass roof tile system. This relatively new type of roof actually utilizes the sun’s heat and warms your home. These glass tiles actually have a longer life than traditional clay or concrete tiles. Glass shingle roofing is also very efficient in areas with heavy snowfall, as snow is able to easily slide down the smooth glass tiles. For a glass shingle roof for your home, expect to pay $8.00 to $10.00 per square foot when installed by Choice Roofing Group. Although glass shingles have not been a very common roofing material up to this point, now is a great time to be ahead of the game, as these are expected to become extremely in-demand in coming years.
Terracotta Roof Tile Cost:
Terracotta shingles are an excellent choice for homeowners searching for a roofing option that offers longevity and durability. A terracotta roof will cost in the neighborhood of $9.00 to $12.00 per square foot, but will last you for up to 100 years! This means that while this type of roofing may be more expensive initially, you will actually save money over the life of the roof. Often made of clay, terracotta roof tiles are fire resistant, and add a European flare to your home’s exterior. Terracotta shingles also aid in making your home or office more energy efficient, as the shape and density of these tiles help greatly with insulation. Terracotta shingles are also durable, as they are able to withstand many weather conditions. Even when a repair is necessary, there is typically just the need to replace a handful of broken or cracked tiles, rather than replacing large sections of the roof.
In addition to these many benefits, terracotta shingles are also one of the most environmentally-friendly roofing choices you can make. First of all, terracotta shingles are made from clay, an extremely abundant resource. Secondly, the manufacturing process behind this product has significantly less negative impact on the environment when compared to most other types of roofing. And lastly, the long life of a terracotta shingle roof eliminates the need for disposal of old roofing materials as often as other types of roofing. Because of these wonderful benefits, the cost of a terracotta shingle roof is very favorable when compared to other roofing styles.
Cedar Shingle Roof Cost:
Cedar is a wonderful product for roofing customers looking for a traditional “New-England” feel for their home. At Choice Roofing Group, we install cedar shingle roofing at a cost of $5.00 to $7.00 per square foot, on average. Aside from their obvious aesthetic benefits and beauty, cedar shingles are great for your home for a variety of reasons. Cedar shingles are durable, and are excellent for insulating your home, which is why they are a popular option in cold areas. Cedar also has a good life expectancy – typically 25 years or more. Cedar roof shingles are different from cedar shakes in that shingles are sawn on all sides, giving the shingles a more uniform look and feel than cedar shakes. Cedar shingles are a great option in areas where high winds are a concern, as they are often rated to withstand winds of over 150 mph. Cedar is also good for the environment, as it can be harvested and produced using environmentally-friendly methods.
As with other types of wood shingle or shake roofing, it is important to keep a cedar roof as clear of debris as possible. When debris such as leaves and branches accumulate, there is a greater chance that moisture will build and lead to mold. If you have a cedar shingle roof installed, make certain you have it cleaned fairly regularly, and it’s always a good idea to cut back branches that overhang the roof. By doing these minor things, you can save yourself the cost of roof repairs that become necessary due to moisture and mildew.
Cost of Slate Shingle Roofing:
There are many benefits to installing a slate shingle roof on your home: slate shingles are extremely long-lasting and fire-resistant, and they need very little maintenance over time. Choice Roofing Group installs slate shingle roofs at a cost of between $8.00 and $10.00 per square foot, on average. As a more economical alternative, the cost of synthetic slate shingle roof is between $4.50 and $6.50 per square foot. Synthetic shingles are durable like true slate shingles, but cost less and weigh a lot less, so they are easier to install. This helps cut down the slate roof installation costs. You’ll be hard-pressed to find better slate shingle prices anywhere, which is why we are the best option for your slate roofing needs.
The installation of a slate roof is certainly one that should be left up to an experienced roof company. At Choice Roofing Group, we offer affordable costs for our slate shingle roofing, and we’ll make sure the job is done right every time. With a large variety of styles, colors and sizes, we offer a great selection of slate shingles at reasonable prices.
Composite Shingle Roofing Cost:
Composite shingle roofing is one of the most popular roofing options chosen by homeowners for various reasons. Composite shingles, also known as asphalt shingles, are inexpensive, come in a variety of styles and colors, and can be installed in all types of climates. We install composite shingle roofing, on average, for between $2.00 and $3.50 per square foot. The most common type of composite shingles we install are fiberglass shingles. These are most popular because they have an “A” fire rating and are waterproof, saving you from the cost of roof repairs of other types of composite shingles, such as organic shingles. If you’re looking for affordable asphalt shingle prices, you’ve come to the right place. Our asphalt shingle roof installation is extremely economical, but we don’t sacrifice our quality one bit. You can still expect expert installation of your new composite shingle roof, leaving your home safe and secure from the elements. Our roof contractors are highly trained and true experts in the field of composite shingle roofing, and we work hard to keep our costs down to pass along savings to our customers.
Concrete Shingle Roof Prices:
While concrete shingles may cost a little more than more economical options such as composite shingles, averaging $4.75 to $7.00 per square foot, they are an excellent choice for homeowners due to their durability and longevity. Paying a little more up front will save you in the long run, as concrete shingles often carry warranties of 60 years or longer. Concrete roof tiles are fabricated in almost every style and color, so there’s sure to be a concrete roof option that meets your aesthetic and budgetary needs. Concrete shingles typically come in two types – standard weight and lightweight. It’s generally a better idea to stick with standard weight tiles, as they are harder to break and will stand up better to rough weather and debris falling on them from trees. Concrete shingle or concrete tile roofing typically carries an “A” fire rating, and can be installed in a wide range of climates.
A lot of the cost of concrete shingle roofing is in the labor. The actual installation of a concrete shingle roof is fairly time-consuming, as concrete shingles are installed individually and it takes a great deal of still to make any necessary cuts to the tiles. When compared to other roof companies, you will find our concrete shingle roof pricing to be extremely competitive, especially when you factor in the expertise, attention to detail, and overall value provided by Choice Roofing Group.
Clay Tile Shingle Prices:
Clay tiles aren’t the most inexpensive roofing products you can buy – running between $9.00 to $12.00 per square foot – but they are one of the best. Clay tile shingles have a life expectancy of almost a century, and are exceptional when it comes to insulating a home. They are also fire-resistant, typically rated as an “A” for fire resistance, and easily replaced if you do happen to have a damaged tile or 2. While it may be hard to find “cheap” clay tile shingle roofing, Choice Roofing Group is extremely competitive price-wise when compared to other roof companies. We make a great effort to provide the best service possible when installing your new roof, rather than just trying to offer the cheapest roof installation possible. Our salespeople are knowledgeable, and care about helping you determine if a clay tile shingle roof is right for you. If you’re in need of knowing the cost of clay tile roof repairs, simply give us a call. With roof repairs, we take them on a case by case basis since every repair is different. This is why it is difficult to provide a cost of a roof repair without knowing the specific situation. Get in touch with us via email or phone and we’ll be happy to guide you through the repair process.
Hot Mop Coating:
Hot mop roofing is typically used on flat commercial buildings, and costs between $5.50 and $7.50 per square foot, on average. This roofing option is perfect for business owners searching for a fairly inexpensive roof material that will also last, as hot mop roofing has a life expectancy of between 15 and 30 years. A professional roof contractor such as Choice Roofing Group can handle this type of roofing installation quickly, typically in as little as a day or two. Since this is such a messy product and can be difficult to install, it is certainly an installation best left to professional roofers.
Hot mop roofing is great for commercial properties because the cost of hot mop roofing is significantly less than that of other types of commercial roofing, and hot mop roofing can actually be applied over previous coatings of hot mop. Hot mop roofing also easily conforms to the irregular shape of many commercial roofs, and can easily be applied around air vents, chimneys, etc. There is also no real need for hot mop roofing repairs – a new hot mop roof should give you a couple of decades of usage before needing to budget for a new hot mop roof again.
Spray Coating Costs:
Spray foam roofing is another type of commercial roofing material that is perfect for many types of businesses and warehouses. Liquid foam is the basis of this type of roof, as the liquid is sprayed on and turns to foam. One huge benefit of a spray foam roof is the insulation, as a spray foam roof can literally cut your energy bills in half. A spray foam roof is also fairly inexpensive, especially for a commercial roof product. We install this type of roofing for, on average, between $3.50 and $4.75 per square foot. Spray foam roofing not only lowers your heating costs, but can also lower your cooling costs due to the reflective UV barrier that is often included with a spray foam roof. For this reason, the true cost of a spray foam roof is extremely reasonable over the life of the roof system.
