Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a new roof cost?
The cost of a new roof can cost anywhere between $2,000 to $25,000 or more depending on a number of factors. Whether you’re looking for a residential or commercial roof, a number of factors affect the cost of a new roof:
- Roof size: The larger a roof, the more materials it will require and costs are likely to be higher
- Pitch/slope: If the pitch or slope of your roof is unusually steep, this may cost more. Steep roofs are invariably riskier and crews will need additional safety equipment to prevent accidents. Overall, labor costs tend to be slightly higher for steep roofs compared to flat ones.
- Roof materials: Costs may vary significantly based the material used. For example, asphalt roofs are more affordable while metal roofs cost more per square foot.

How long will it take to replace my roof?
If you need a new roof altogether, you’ll definitely professional assistance. Roof replacement can take anywhere between one to 5 days depending on the size of the roof to be replaced, removal of the old roof materials and the area that you live in.
While our licensed contractors will complete the task as quickly as possible, it’s also very important to pay attention to quality. If the weather is harsh with continuous rain or snow, it may take longer to replace the roof.
How do I tell if I need a new roof?
You need a new roof if you notice sunshine through the attic (if light can get in, so can rain and wind). Curling, cracked, broken or missing shingles may be a source of concern. You may also notice that your roof is sagging.
The appearance of mold and mildew indicates water may be leaking into the house through the roof. In extreme cases, you may notice water actually dripping straight into the attic or living room.
