What Is the Total Cost of Roof Replacement?

Last updated on August 13, 2023

Here are the considerations to take into account when calculating the total cost of roof replacement. Read on!

I’ll tell you right now that roof replacement is not an easy thing to execute, nor it is cheap, however, everyone will tell you that this is something that simply must be done if you want to properly protect your home.

That’s actually one of the most important things during house remodeling precisely due to the aforementioned reason.

Therefore, if you would like to know what is the overall cost of it, then pay attention to these facts below.

What's Inside

Things to Consider First

Before we dive further into this topic, we would like to discuss this first. From what we’ve heard from Metro Hail gurus, these are the factors that must be considered:

  • The area of the roof, in square meters
  • The type of roofing you’ll be selecting
  • The slope or inclination of the roof
  • The price of the labor

Bear in mind that if your roof has a steep pitch or cannot be accessed easily, then you’ll have to give more money for it. In addition, if it has several pitches, then your expenses will be higher as well.

Another thing that we would like to add when it comes to this is the fact that the size of your roof will impact the total cost too, due to the fact that a bigger roof requires a lot more cash.

Moreover, if you opt for a steeply-C slanting roof, you’ll have to set aside more money, because it’s a lot more demanding, plus roofing professionals will be at a bigger risk while working on it.

The Total Cost Of It

If you want to get a grasp of how much this entire project will cost you (per square meter), then I’ll explain to you by using a typical three-bedroom household:

  • $20,000 to replace current concrete tiles 
  • Replacing asbestos cement roof by using colorbond, which is up to $20,000
  • Colorbond roofing expenses are somewhere between $6,000 and $10,000 if you want to replace your metal roof

Discussing More Price Estimates

  1. The overall cost of reroofing a house is somewhere between $4,000 to $15,000 and it frequently encompasses replacing roof shingles too
  2. Depending on the materials and pitch, if you would like to replace the roof on your garage, you have to set aside around $2,000
  3. If you own a home that comes with a shingled roof, then you’ll have to pay for this somewhere between $4,500 and $7,500

Speaking of roof replacement, it doesn’t matter whether you will replace it or repair it, keep in mind that it’s essential for a roofing company to own a license. They may have a dedicated roofing license, like roof slating, roof tiling, building license, or roof cladding.

That really doesn’t matter since it mostly depends on the place you live in, however, what matters is that they are licensed. Consequently, before you decide to hire anyone, please check this first.

As you can see, roof replacement is for sure a massive investment, however, if you take care of it the right way, then the right way (which means regular maintenance) then you won’t have to do it often.
