While experienced roofers have a lot of great answers to this question, it's worth looking at the general costs. Getting an estimate or quote is the best way to know what you're looking at since every situation is different. Many estimates are free, so there's no harm in checking it out!

The price of a roofing job is based on a few factors. While the most crucial factor is the size of the roof, the condition it's in is also a factor in determining the price. A new roof can be expensive but is an ideal choice if your roof is in bad shape. If the roof is relatively new, you can consider a roof restoration, remove any dirt or debris, and apply a sealant to the surface. Roof restorations will help maintain the integrity of the roof and keep it in good condition. Pricing for a roofing job will vary greatly depending on the pitch and type of roof you have. The type of shingles you choose is also a factor determining the price, as some are more expensive than others. Certain features on the roof, like chimneys or ventilation pipes, can also affect the price. Renovating or repairing your home's roof can also impact your insurance premiums. Different insurance companies employ different rating systems – some will give you a discount if you install impact-resistant shingles, while others will not. To know which company you should go with, it's a good idea to consult a broker.

Consider hiring a knowledgeable roofing contractor to do the installation.
