What Is the Cost of a Replacement Roof?

Point of view: your roof system has reached the end of its life, and it’s time to seriously consider a roof replacement. You know it’s necessary, but you can’t begin to imagine how much it’ll cost you. So, you find yourself on your local Texas roofers’ website to figure out how to determine the cost of your roofing project. 

Replacing your roof is a rather large and complex project that requires high-quality materials and a specialized crew. Our experts here at Artisan Roofing & Solar can help you plan your roofing project—starting with a free, accurate estimate. 

While an on-site inspection is always the best way to know the cost of a replacement roof, there are a few general rules of thumb. Let’s look at some of the key factors that will impact the cost of your DFW roof replacement.

The Size and Shape of Your Roof

The square footage of your roof system will have the biggest impact on the cost of the project. This is because it directly correlates to the number of materials and hours of labor needed to get the job done. A taller roof system will also be more of a challenge as your roofers will have to work more carefully and, therefore, more slowly. 

The Roofing Materials You Use

The type of roof system you want is going to influence how much it costs overall. Luckily, there are many different options from which you can choose for your home. For starters, we’re going to talk about three popular options that we offer here at Artisan Roofing & Solar: 

  • Classic Asphalt Shingles are one of the most popular options on the market and one of the most cost-effective, too. They can generally last between 20 and 50 years with regular maintenance.
  • Energy-Efficient Metal Roofing is more expensive upfront but pays for itself off over time. This material can help you save money on your heating and cooling bills throughout the year. Plus, metal requires little maintenance along the way.
  • Flat Roof Systems are generally more expensive than sloped roofs. This is because they require more work during the installation process, including adding a layer of insulation.

Your Roof’s Accessibility

It’s important to have an accessible point on your roof to give your contractors space to tear off the old roofing, get the old materials to the dump truck, and send the new materials up. The harder it is to do these tasks, the more expensive your project will be. Some factors that can make your roof system less accessible include: 

  • Roof penetrations—chimneys, plumbing and gas vents, skylights, etc.
  • Roofs with steep slopes, sharp angles, hips, valleys, and more
  • Landscaping and fencing around your house
  • Large yards that keep the dump truck further away
