Akron Ohio Roofer Craig Roofing Publishes Blog Post Discussing - How Much Does A New Roof Cost
Craig Roofing, a Northeast Ohio roofing contractor, has published a blog post that discusses information that homeowners should know when it comes to the cost of installing a new roof on their property.
Property owners need to regularly invest money towards the maintenance and upkeep of their home or commercial establishment to ensure it is in the best shape possible to weather the negative effects of bad weather, age, and general wear and tear. Regular maintenance has many benefits as homes that are well maintained and presentable fetch a higher value when they are put up for sale on the property market whereas businesses need to make sure that they always look inviting to attract customers.
The roof is one of the most prominently visible parts of a property and it is also susceptible to damage as it is exposed to the elements the most. The roof, therefore, ends up needing regular maintenance to fix problems such as missing and loose shingles, damaged flashing, dried caulking, leaks, dislodged gutters, and many more. In some cases, the roof can go a long time without being properly looked at by a professional leading to severe, irreparable damage that poses a threat to the residents of the home and the guests who frequent it. The best solution for a roof that has sustained massive damage is a complete roof replacement.
Craig Roofing from Akron, Ohio, has published a very informative and insightful blog post on how much money homeowners can expect to pay for a complete roof replacement. The blog post begins by listing the many different factors that influence the new roof cost including the square footage of the roof, the pitch of the roof, the type of roof (flat, low slope, steep pitch), the type of roofing to be installed such as asphalt shingles, metal, or slate, the number of existing roof layers needing removal, the disposal of roof waste, the existing roof damage from water, storms, wind, hail, or debris, the need for specialty repairs or replacements for skylights, chimneys, and flashing, and other overhead costs such as payroll, labor, insurance, and equipment.
A damaged roof can add to the cost of a roof replacement if additional repairs are needed before a new roof can be installed. The pitch and complexity of the roof can make the job more difficult and dangerous, often leading to a higher cost. The quality of the final roofing materials to be installed will also significantly add to the total cost. The cost to tear off the original roof is included in the cost to replace it.
All throughout the United States, and especially in Northern Ohio, asphalt shingles are the most common type of roofing due to their versatility in design options, affordable cost, and durability. They account for nearly 80% of all residential roofing in the country. The most popular shingle brands in the country include CertainTeed, GAF, and Owens Corning. Most quality shingle manufacturers generally offer 30 and 50-year warranties on their products ensuring a long life for the roof.
The blog post from Craig Roofing summarizes by saying that a shingle roof replacement typically ranges from around $6,000 to $15,000. Overall, the price of a roof replacement can be as little as $1,000 for something like a shed or small barn and it can go upwards of $50,000 for a large and complex install. If the damage to the roof was caused by an act of God such as strong winds, hurricanes, or storms, the cost of the roof replacement can be recouped from the homeowner’s insurance.
