How Much Does A New Roof Cost 2021? | Houston, The Woodlands, Spring, Etc.

We understand replacing a roof is a huge project that can become large investment for any homeowner. Your roof is also one of the most visible portions of your house, as well as one the most important components in keeping your home safe from the environment. That's why we are here to help you understand the cost of a new roof.

One Hundred square feet is considered a roofing square. So for a Houston home with a roof area of 2,000 square feet it would cost around $5,000 - $7,000. The difference in price is determined by a few factors I'll explain below.


A Roof Replacement can typically cost between $5,000 - $18,000.



Complexity of Roof

The complexity really just means how difficult is it to get the job done.


Roof Size

  • The size of your home is not the same as the size of your roof. You need to consider wether your roof has a lower or higher pitch. There are various roof types such as gable, hip, mansard, and others that cost more than a flat roof.


Roof Pitch

  • Some homes in The Woodlands & Spring have a shallow roof pitch, whereas others have much higher roof pitch. The pitch elevation makes a difference in the installation cost, as the steeper the roof, the more surface area. Also the steeper the roof the slower the job will take because of safety precautions such as harnesses.

Layers

  • Most homes only have 1 layer of asphalt shingle but sometimes a home can have two layers. The more material needed to be teared off, the higher of price because of labor and disposal costs.

Additional Details

  • There are details such as chimneys, gutters, skylights, roof boot pipes, solar panels, and others that can add up the material & labor costs.


Material Being Used

Material cost is one of the biggest and most important things to consider. There are different brands and differences in there materials being used.

  • Type of Asphalt Shingles

  • Ice & Water Shield

  • Traditional Felt vs Synthetic Felt

  • Traditional Roof Vents Vs Ridge Vent

  • Etc.

The fact is that roofing material is going to be relatively the same for every roofing company. A cheap roofer that can only compete with other companies by offering a lower price is going to cut corners to keep a profit.

Labor Cost

The cost of the labor includes tear off and installation. This price fluctuates in terms of the workload for example a higher pitch roof with 2 layers of shingles would have a higher labor cost. This cost also changes from location to location as well from the demand and supply of labor. Not just anybody can replace a roof, your roof crew has to be trained and understand the correct manufacturer's installation method to ensure the warranty does not get voided.



Warranty

The average lifespan of a roof is 20-25 years, but that is only if it is installed correctly. Unfortunately the roofing industry has a bad name in terms of customer complaints with a company that didn't install the roof properly. Installation errors can void the manufacture's warranty. Not only does the manufacture's warranty matter but as well as the Roofing Companies Guaranteed Warranty that makes the difference. Here at HHH Roofing & Construction we offer a 5-10 year guarantee on top of the manufactures warranty.
