We’ve seen firsthand how much a new roof can transform a home. Not only does it improve the aesthetic appeal, but it also protects your property and enhances its overall value. However, we also understand that many homeowners may shy away from roof replacement due to the perceived cost. It’s true that replacing your roof can be a major expense for any homeowner. But getting a new roof might be more affordable than you think. There are several factors that determine the cost of a new roof, so let’s discuss some of the biggest determiners.

The Size of Your Roof

The size of your roof is one of the biggest factors that will determine the cost of your new roof. It’s not surprising that the larger the roof, the more materials, and labor will be required to complete the job, which will drive up the overall cost. A larger roof will also take longer to complete, which can add to the labor costs.

Roofing Materials

The type of roofing material you choose can also have a significant impact on the cost of your new roof. Asphalt shingles are generally the most affordable option, while metal roofing, slate, or tile can be more expensive. However, it’s important to remember that higher-quality materials often have longer lifespans, which may save you money in the long run. At Precision Exteriors, we offer a variety of roofing materials to suit every budget. We’ll work with you to choose affordable materials that will look great on your home.

The Complexity of the Project

As a general rule, the more damage the roof and related materials have sustained, the more expensive it will be to fix them. If there is damage or decay to the underlying structure, it may need to be repaired or replaced, which can add to the cost of the installation. Additionally, if your roof has a steep pitch, unusual angles, or multiple levels, the installation will be more challenging and time-consuming. 

How to Save on a New Roof

When it comes time for a new roof, there are certain factors that can’t be changed: the size and complexity of the roof, for example. But there are also several things you can do to decrease your expenses. 

Many homeowners may be eligible for insurance coverage to help offset the cost of a new roof. If your roof has sustained storm damage, your insurance provider may cover some or all of the costs associated with the repair or replacement. Your roofing contractor will provide all the necessary information to insurance so you can be sure your claim will be approved quickly.

Another tip for saving on roofing costs is to be proactive about when you have the roof repaired or replaced. Don’t wait until your ceiling starts dripping to call someone; if you know your roof is getting old, get an estimate and start figuring out how to work it into your budget. If your home sustains damage because of an old roof, you’ll end up paying a much larger bill.
