Your roof is the piece of the home that protects what matters to you most: your family, your pets, your memories. It protects the living space where you enjoy a cup of coffee or a couple of laughs with friends and family. Your roof protects you when you sleep and keeps you dry. Your roof is important!

The roof cost starts to be evaluated by researching the company that is educating you on what components make up the roofing system.
The roof cost is reflective of the company’s experience in the field and the training that their team has accomplished. The biggest mistakes in roofing occur in the installation process. Problems can almost always be attributed to human error, by installing products incorrectly. Experience and impeccable craftsmanship is something that is reflected in the roof cost.
In city homes or more complex homes, the price for an asphalt roof replacement is $5.50 per square foot to $7.50 per square foot.
How complex is the roof of your home? The roof cost is reflective of the level of complexity of the roof. If your home is complex, having several cuts, and turns, your due diligence is to protect your home and to qualify roofing contractors that are experienced to deal with complexity.
The cost of a roof also demonstrates the grade of shingles you are looking to install. There is a wide variety of shingle series you can choose from. In addition to the shingles, there are also other components that make up the roofing system to protect your home as best as possible when confronting the elements of nature: rain storms, heavy snow, hot and cold temperatures. Making sure that your contractor does not skip on all appropriate and mandated materials that make up the roofing system, is vital. Many contractors will avoid adding certain products to cut and avoid costs. However, this can come at a high price when fixing the big problem that skipping steps caused. The roof cost also includes the coverage of all permits associated with the project. A permit fee must be paid to the city or town building department. Many contractors willingly avoid this process altogether because it’s an inconvenience, and it can be “costly.” However, in the event something goes wrong, the building permit is a document that protects the homeowner from faulty contractors. Make sure that the roof cost of the project covers the permit application by the contractor.
The roof cost is important to evaluate, and really examine to make sure the cost covers all of the important aspects to protect your home and yourself. Make sure to study the properties of the company first. Although the roof price plays an important role in decision making, so does your protection and your trust in the company that will be touching your home’s roof. Buy cheap, buy twice!
