Even the strongest of roofs will begin to deteriorate over time, and depending on the material a well-built roof could last anywhere from 30-100 years. Once your roof has reached this range, it’s time to seriously think about a roof replacement.
What To Consider When Replacing Your Roof
There’s a lot to consider when a total roof replacement is imminent. What causes the need for a roof replacement? What kind of materials should you use, and exactly what goes into the final cost of a replacement?

Determining the Cost of a Roof Replacement
There are numerous factors that can affect the financial bottom line when you’ve decided on a roof replacement. Generally speaking, a roof replacement can range anywhere from $5,500 to $11,000, with the average cost to replace a roof being right around $8,000. Above all else, the square footage of your roof, the materials you chose to build the roof, and lastly the labor costs involved in a roof replacement, will play the biggest roles in calculating your costs.
- Square Footage — The size of your roof is one of the biggest factors that will determine your costs. The larger the area being repaired or replaced, the more materials and labor that will be needed as well.
- Materials — Like most constructions, the saying that “you get what you pay for” is equally as true for roofs. Asphalt shingles will be relatively cheaper, but may not last as long as more expensive materials like metal roofing or TPO roofing. Generally, materials will make up 40% of the final costs.
- Labor — A special roofing measurement called a square, denoting 100 square feet, is used to determine the cost of a roof replacement. Labor costs typically range from $150-$300, and can fluctuate due to the severity of the repair or replacement, environmental conditions, and other factors.
