Actually, the price of a new roof per square foot is actually not that much
. Your base price per sq foot can start at just $1.75 per sq to remove and replace a 20 year roof
. So, if you have a 2000 sq ft roof
, and you put in a 20 year asphalt roof
, will labor
you`re probably looking at paying about $4500 with labor
. That is the lowest cost to the cheapest quality roof
, and prices for roofing with better warranties go up from there. For, example, a 30 yr roof
would cost you a few thousand more, and a 40 year laminate might cost close to double.
If you have a two story home or a steep roof
pitch, these will up the price of labor
, as will working around skylights. Also, if they put new flashings, this will cost you more. Before you pick a roofing contractor, get estimates from 3 different roofing companies and make sure they can produce a proof of insurance. You want them to be bonded and have a current insurance policy in case things go wrong later. You can also check with the BBB.
