A reliable roofing company can provide you with an estimate for your roof replacement. However, the cost of your roofing project may increase due to unforeseen factors. That’s why you should have a buffer when preparing your budget. We share some expected and variable roofing costs.
Keep reading to learn more about the variables that affect your roofing expenses.
The cost of your roofing project depends on the roof’s size, slope and complexity. Generally, the simpler the roofing system, the less it will cost. Roofs with more level changes, valleys, hips and other additional features are more expensive.
Roofing issues, such as water damage or mold growth, will increase your roofing costs. Your contractor must address all these problems before installing the new roof. If the sheathing and rafters need to be replaced, expect higher costs and a longer timeframe for your project.
Building Code Issues
Local roofers have to update your old roof structure to comply with new building codes. This means they might need to replace the entire roof structure before installing the new roof materials.
Heavy Roof Materials
Using heavier roof materials, such as slate and clay tiles, can cause structural damage if your roof structure wasn’t built for such materials. Your roofing contractor might have to upgrade your roof structure before installing the new roof.
Contractors can take care of the disposal of old roofing materials for an added cost. This isn’t usually a significant expense, but it’s best to include this in your budget.
