The size of the investment that you have to make if you want a new roof on your home depends on many factors – here are some of the most important ones:
- The size and type of the roof – a large, steep sloping roof obviously needs more material than a small flat roof, roof replacement costs are directly proportionate with the size and the sloping angle of the roof;
- The material that the roof is made from – asphalt shingles are the cheapest roofing materials available today, followed in line by metal panels and clay tiles. Livermore roofing made from natural materials, such as slate and wood, are the most expensive and they are also the ones that are the most maintenance-intensive. If the climate of the installation area requires special solutions, such as superior resistance to impact, the special materials will also add to the overall costs of the new roof;
- Extra features – special chimneys, skylights, multiple slopes joined in creative ways also increase roofing costs;
- Special coating – the resistance of your roof surface can be efficiently enhanced with coatings, but the coating material will also cost;
- Insulation – whatever material your roof is made from, the structure cannot be complete without suitable insulation. Loose fill and fiberglass insulation are currently the cheapest solutions, but you can also choose spray foam that is more expensive, but more efficient and more durable than other materials.
