Shingle Roofing Replacement: How Much Does a New Roof Cost?

Shingle Roofing Replacement: How Much Does a New Roof Cost?

Whether your roof has been damaged by a storm or has just reached the end of its life, you may be thinking about re-roofing. There are, of course, many options and variable to consider. And one of the biggest questions you will ask yourself is “how much will I spend”?

Shingle Roofing Replacement: How Much Does a New Roof Cost?

As with so many home projects, there is no simple, one-size-fits-all answer. The cost of a new roof is dependent on several variables.  Among them:


Roofing materials come in a wide range of price points. The most common roofing materials in use in the USA are asphalt composition shingles, and they are among the least expensive. Higher-grade shingles come with longer warranties, as well as higher price tags.

Installation cost will also vary depending on whether you’re using common tree-tab strips or the thicker individual roof shingles.

Roof size & type

The impact of size of your roof on the final cost should be self-explanatory: the bigger the roof’s square footage, the greater the cost.

The shape and structure of your home’s roof goes a long way in impacting the roof replacement cost. If your house has a steep roof, it will have more square feet and take more out of your pocket. In addition to more surface area, a steep-pitched roof is more labor-intensive to install.

Other issues impacting the re-roofing cost: chimneys and/or skylights the roofing contractor needs to work around, multiple valleys and peaks vs. simple, “smooth” surface.

Old Material Removal

You’ll pay more for a new asphalt shingle roof if you have to tear off old roofing first. Most often than not your insurance will not allow more than one or two layers, so you may need to remove old material before installing a new layer. Also, if you have to repair or replace the wood decking and put down new roofing paper or waterproofing, the price will go up.


If you want to save money, consider re-roofing in the off season when your contractor is less busy and his prices are negotiable. Most roofing installations happen in spring and fall but if you can avoid busiest months, you may be able to negotiate a better deal.
