Roof replacement Cost explained by Sage

Maintaining the “roof over your head” could be the smartest money you spend in 2018! The price tag might feel hefty at first look, but quality roofs are made with only the best materials and expert labor. Roof replacement cost can be confusing, here are some tips and advice from the professionals at Sage.

What factors into Roof Replacement Cost?

The Cause of the Damage – Paying to replace a roof really depends on how it was damaged in the first place. Storm, wind, or hail damages are normally covered under your insurance policy. Here at Sage we are experienced in the ways of dealing with insurance companies, from initial roof inspection to completion. So we know how to get your roof replaced with little or no cost to you! For most people in North Texas storm damage is the main reason to get a roof replaced, but what if you are selling your home, remodeling, updating, or just found out your home needs a new roof? Keep reading to see what factors into roof replacement cost.

Materials and Application – High-quality roofing materials are essential to building a great roof, but can also drive up the roof replacement cost. It’s important to rebuild with the best materials because it needs to protect your home and family. There are also different ways to attach roofing to the roof deck, which can affect the overall cost. Some installations require specific labor or materials. Contact us to explain these differences.

Where you live – Many factors fall under the “geography” category. Building code requirements, material prices, and environmental factors change from region to region and these affect pricing. Our estimators can explain the differences for you and help you find just the right product for your home.

Roof Size and Pitch – How large or steep your roof directly relates to roof replacement cost. Pitch is a factor since steeper roofs take a lot more time and material to replace than a flat one, and thus are more costly to replace.

Roof Elements – Old roofing layers may need to be removed from an older structure that may have endured several storms and had reroofing. Does your roof have skylights, chimneys or special features? Some structures have obstacles that roofers need to work around. All of those issues need to be addressed and evaluated properly, which takes time and money.

So why do some roofers charge more than others?

Well, honestly for us it comes down to quality and customer service. Some roofing companies are willing to compromise on quality to afford their underbids. Shorter warranties, cheaper materials, unskilled laborers, or low-cost materials are usually how they do it. Many roofers are simply storm chasing roofers that operate out of a truck, and have no home office; they have no insurance or licensing, which can be a dangerous liability to the homeowner.
