We’re going to talk about what the average roof replacement is going to cost and by average what I mean is just a simple roof it could be a two-story most likely one-story but it doesn’t have a lot of facets on it not a lot of features and in size, it’s usually somewhere between two thousand square feet and probably 2,400 square feet that’s pretty much an average-sized roof here in Simcoe County area.

Roof Repair extras that can increase the average cost of your new roof
Another thing that influences the cost of the roof covering is your roofing a simple roof covering or is it complicated. So a roof such as this one is relatively complicated and it raises the quantity of work. It takes them longer to install the roofing system on it lots of cuts that need to be made that normally aren’t most likely to be made but the other thing that influences the cost of a re-roof on a really complicated roofing system similar to this one is the truth that there’s a lot of valleys and we need to purchase valley product for that as well as there are a lot of ridges and also hips, as well as those products, cost greater than normal shingles so if your roof is a straightforward one the expense could drop from the typical if your roofing system is a complex one the cost is probably more likely to go up from standard. The following one probably seems relatively evident but is your roof covering significant or is it little so even if your roofing system isn’t intricate yet it’s extremely huge then, naturally, that’s going to enhance the price from the ordinary roof covering and also on the other hand, if your roof covering is really small then that’s most likely to decrease the expense from the ordinary roof and like I claimed an ordinary roofing system is possibly anywhere between 2,000 square feet and 2,400 square feet nonetheless don’t puzzle the square footage of your residence with the square video of your roofing system.
Roof Complexity can increase the cost of replacing a roof.
Another thing that affects the price of the roof is is your roof a simple roof or is it complex. So a roof like this one is fairly complex and it increases the amount of labour. It takes them longer to install the roof on it lots of cuts that need to be made that ordinarily aren’t going to be made but the other thing that affects the price of a re-roof on a very complex roof like this one is the fact that there’s a lot of valleys and we have to buy valley material for that and there are a lot of ridges and hips and those products cost more than regular shingles so if your roof is a simple one the cost could go down from the average if your roof is a complex one the cost is probably going to go up from average. This next one probably seems fairly obvious but is your roof huge or is it tiny so even if your roof isn’t complex but it’s very very large then, of course, that’s going to increase the cost from the average roof and conversely, if your roof is really tiny then that’s going to decrease the cost from the average roof and like I said an average roof is probably anywhere between 2,000 square feet and 2,400 square feet however don’t confuse the square footage of your house with the square footage of your roof.
One other thing that will have a pretty dramatic effect on the price of a re-roof is homeowner maintenance things like a new roof deck so the roof deck is the wood on top of your rafters or on top of your trusses that the underlayment and the shingles get nailed to so if after your roofer tears off all the roofing materials and finds out that you’ve got rotted wood in there because of water intrusion or maybe some of the wood is just too thin and it’s gotten cracked or broken because of people walking on it then those boards are going to have to be replaced now if you live in an older home and you don’t have solid decking but you have slap decking which has gaps in between each board because they’re using like 1/6 or 1/8 or 1/10 that are got to be entirely re-decked so the whole house would need to have a new roof deck put on it and usually we’re just using 7/16 OSB that’s normally what gets used to putting on a new deck on a house.
How Accessible is your home
A significant thing that will affect the cost of the re-roof job is just how accessible your home is. When products are delivered usually the shingle delivery will certainly place those up on your roofing and also they do that either with a conveyor or with a boom arm and just from the vehicle parked in the street or parked near your driveway, they’ll just bring those best up on top of the roof covering. If they can’t do that as a result of access troubles then they have to place all that material on the ground by the residence then our guys need to hand load that package each time that increases the work cost similarly if our staff can not obtain their dump trailer near to your home so that way they can simply toss the materials off of the roofing into the dump trailer then they have to throw every one of the waste material onto the ground as well as hand carry that to their dump trailer whether that’s parked in your driveway or parked in the street so once again that takes a lot longer to do all that stuff, therefore, the work expenses go up sometimes relatively considerably depending upon exactly how huge your roof is.
New Roof may Need Felt Paper Replaced
Another thing to consider that’s not necessary but some people want to do that is whether or not they want to make any upgrades to their roof so for instance if they want to put ice and water shield on the roof even if it’s not required upgrade from just a standard felt paper to a synthetic underlayment or moving to an upgraded shingle for instance if somebody has a standard laminate shingle but they want to put on impact-resistant shingles then, of course, that’s going to raise the price as well and remember upgrades aren’t something that your insurance company is ever gonna pay for that’s always going to be an out-of-pocket expense for you as the homeowner. Now here’s a super important thing for you to take into consideration of course you should be talking to multiple roofing contractors but don’t make your decision based on the price.
Roof shingles are measured in per Square
So if your house is in the central part of the south part of the east part of Ontario you can realistically expect that an average cost to replace your roof is going to be between $8,000 and probably about $9,500, $9,600. If you happen to live where homes are larger the cost is going to be a little bit higher, a lot of those houses are a lot older and so you may run into issues with having to reject the house an average cost to redo a roof in that part of town starts probably around $10,000 and could go up to as high as even $15,000 and again some of that is due to the more expensive homes in that area and some of those have upgraded roofs already.
