Residential Roof Replacement
Oftentimes roofing problems can be solved with minor repairs, while other roofing issues require a complete roof replacement.
If you are trying to determine if you need your roof replaced, here are some signs that can identify whether you need repairs or a complete roof replacement.
Leaking. Many leaks can be solved with repairs. Leaking most often means that your roof’s flashing may need some work. We recommend that any leaks be inspected by a professional roofer as soon as it’s detected. If the leak is ignored, it can lead to more costly repairs or a full replacement.
Curling shingles. This is when the corners of shingles bend upwards or downwards. Causes of curling include faulty installation, poor attic ventilation, or defective shingles. Curled shingles prevent the roof from providing an effective barrier against the elements such as rain, snow, sun, and wind.
Algae growth. Algae spores travel through the air, and are looking to land on something that they can attach to and begin growing. Algae needs to be cleaned off before it spreads on the roof. Zinc strips also are known to remove algae.
Blistering shingles / peeling paint. Poor attic ventilation, extreme temperatures, and humidity are causes of this. This type of damage normally requires a roof replacement.
Buckling roof. Culprits of this include improper decking installation, improper laying of underlayment, and new shingles being installed over old ones. Sometimes buckling can be repaired. Have a professional roofing contractor inspect and diagnose what the cause is.
Damaged flashing. Compromised flashing requires replacement to keep water flowing away from your home.
Missing granules. Asphalt shingles are covered with granules that serve as an additional barrier against the elements. Over time the shingles will lose granules, and if you see a lot of granules in your gutters, this is a sign that your roof may have reached the end of it’s life, and you need a new roof.
Water stained ceilings. If you detect water stains on your ceiling, it’s a sign that your roof is leaking or you have a condensation problem. Causes of these problems include inadequate ventilation or poor underlayment.
Residential Roofing Cost
What Are Roof Replacement Cost Factors?
Roof replacement costs depend on several factors. Roof replacement contractors have to calculate multiple variables to determine the cost of a new roof. This includes the roof size, pitch, accessibility, and materials. As a result, the roof on one house could vary in price in comparison to another house.
Roof Size. The primary factor determining cost is the size of the roof. Roofers charge by roofing squares, a 100 square foot area. For example, if your roof is 4,000 square feet, it consist of 40 squares.
Pitch. The pitch of the roof will affect the cost of a roofing project. A high pitch will cost more than a low pitch roof because of the complexity and difficulty of the work, it requires more time, safety factors, and insurance costs.
Materials. Asphalt roofing is the most affordable roofing type, next comes wood, metal, tile, and slate. A high quality asphalt roof may last 30 years or more, but metal, tile, and slate may last 50 years or more, so it depends on what you are looking for.
Labor. Labor includes the cost of removing old shingles and installing new shingles.
Other factors. Water damage, chimneys or skylights. Water damage may require replacing structural components of the roof, and roofers have to work around chimneys and skylights which increases the cost of the project.
How Much is Roof Replacement In Your Area?
Replacing a roof is one of the more costly home improvement items for a homeowner. Roof replacement rates vary by regions. For example, the costs in the northeastern United States will be different from the South.
A ballpark figure for the average roof replacement cost will typically be between $5,000 for asphalt shingle roofs (the most commonly used roofing material in the U.S.), to $25,000 and up for higher end roof types.
