3 Factors That Affect a Roofing Project’s Cost
Updated: Sep 29, 2021
If you have a roofing project lined up soon, most likely, there are companies already bidding to take on your project. However, you might be confused as to why their estimated prices can vary. Here are the factors that can affect your roofing project’s cost
Factors That Affect the Project Cost
Roof Size The size of your roof can affect the price of the project. Your roofing contractors can determine the size of your roof based on the square footage and dividing the acquired value by 100. The result is called the “roofing square”. A single roofing square equals 100 square feet. Keep in mind that roofing materials are sold by the square, not per square foot.
Type of Roof and Amount of Layers You’ll either have roof tear-off or an overlay. The price of a roof tear-off is calculated based on the amount of time it takes to tear off the shingles as well as the disposal and dump charges, which is determined by the weight of the material. This is why the number of layers and type of material is also taken into account. If you have a heavy roof, the more it will cost to dispose of it.
Roof Pitch or Slope Another important factor that is considered when calculating the cost is the roof pitch or slope. If you have a roof with a steep pitch, it’s not considered walkable, which requires more time for preparation to ensure a safe roofing job. The type of roof along with the fire rating it has are taken into account.
