It never feels good to find out you need a major home improvement or repair and not have the money to do it. Unfortunately, at some point in time, we’ll all need a new roof for our home. Knowing ahead of time what a new roof will cost helps you plan and budget for this expense. Russ Noyes Roofing, your local Orlando roofer, wants to help you understand the costs associated with different roof replacement types.
The least expensive roof type is asphalt shingles. On average, a new roof using shingles will cost between $5,000 – $10,000 depending upon the size of your roof and the brand and style shingle you choose. Architectural shingles cost more than 3-tab shingles but last at least ten years longer. When you call an Orlando roofer for a quote on an asphalt roof replacement, be sure to clarify that you want a complete tear off and find out about their warranty and workmanship guarantees. Comparing like shingles and like processes and warranties are the only way to look at different quotes.
New tile roofing can cost as much as $30,000. Different types of tile, installation patterns, and brands influence the price. The benefit of spending more is that a well-installed tile roof will last longer than any asphalt roof and may yield energy savings as well.
Metal roofing cost varies depending upon style and color. Standing seem metal roofing is among the more expensive style. The color may also influence the price as some that qualify as cool roofing or have fade resistant paint tend to be at the higher end. Overall, metal roofing is right in between asphalt and tile roofing as far as cost goes. It will last as long as tile roofing and some metal roofs offer the same energy efficient benefits that tile does.
Paying for Your New Roof
Of course, the best way to pay for your new roof is with cash because you budgeted over the past few years and saved for it. If you weren’t expecting to replace your roof and haven’t saved, home equity loans are one option. You may find some tax benefits with either a home equity loan or line of credit. Homeowners in Orlando and Winter Park can take advantage of the Ygrene program for their new roofing. As a Ygrene Orlando roofer, Russ Noyes Roofing can help homeowner with this program.
