Roof Replacement Cost Breakdown

Roof Inspection

You’d have to hire a roofing inspector to determine the extent of your roofing damages. A roofing inspector will provide you with insight into the state of your roof and determine if an entire replacement is necessary or if your roofing issues can be solved with some minor repair work. Some roofing inspectors have a call-out fee, whereas others charge by the hour.

Roofing Materials

Roofing systems have a life expectancy of about 30 to 50 years, depending on your roofing materials. Roofing materials like asphalt shingles have the shortest lifespan of about 15 to 25 years, and materials like cedar and metal can last upwards of 50 years. In comparison, tile and slate rooftops have a reputation of lasting over 100 years.

How long your roofing system lasts is primarily dependent on its composition. Stronger, more durable materials will fare much better in severe weather conditions than lighter materials. Some materials are exceptional at withstanding the forces of nature, whereas others crumble with a bit of heat and rain. Weaker roofing materials require more maintenance and regular upkeep than those able to weather the storm. Therefore, you’ll likely pay more for materials like tile and slate up front due to their high weather resistance rating.


Your roofing installation costs are dependent on the labor costs of your preferred roofing company and the size of your roofing system. Some materials like metal, tile, and slate require specialists to install them correctly; installing these materials will, therefore, likely cost you a bit more.
