How Much Does It Costs To Roof My House?

It depends on a variety of things. Is it a single story or two? What type of roof, shingles, tile or metal? Is the roof a steep pitch? Is the roof cut up (many angles)

A single story home is less than two stories. Shingles are less than tile or metal. Lower pitches are less than steep ones. Basic roof shapes are less than multiple roof angles.

Roof contractors measure roofs in squares. One square is 10 foot x 10 foot area or one hundred square feet. Once total square footage of the roof ( not living square footage) is attained than divide that number by 100 to learn the number of squares on the roof. Most roofers will multiply that number by 10% for waste in valleys and ridges for the final number of squares.

The average shingle roof cost is $285.00 to $300.00 per square. Metal is $700.00 to $1000.00  Tile is $500.00 to $800.00. The typical Florida home is 30 to 40 squares. These cost include removal, material, labor and permits.

These numbers are averages and until the type of roof is determined and the variables mentioned earlier are determined by a competent roof contractor these numbers can give a homeowner examples of what it cost to roof a home.
