What Does a New Roof Cost?

Learn more about how we estimate and quote roofing projects

Calculating the cost of a roof is a fairly straightforward process but several factors can contribute to the amount you see on your proposal.

While each roofing company may be offering similar services or materials, they are all providing those services using various means that are unique to that contractor.

When you are looking at a quote from a contractor, you are seeing the cost to hire that company’s team to manage and perform all the work required to get rid of your old roof and install a new one. There’s a lot that happens both on the roof and behind the scenes to accomplish this and it’s in this realm that most of the differences between one company and another can be found.

The team at Prime Roofing is highly responsive and well organized. We are intentionally sized with only one location so that we give attention to each project we complete. We do better, not more.

Additionally, our roofing packages come standard with high-quality water barriers, synthetic underlayment, hurricane rated Owens Corning Duration Series architectural shingles, and custom fabricated roof flashings. We deliver a modern spin on good old fashioned service. The value Prime Roofing provides homeowners is hard to improve upon!

Real Price Examples

In most cases, the price of a roof is directly related to how many square feet the home is. The area of a roof is on average 35% more than the square footage of a home. This is due mainly to two factors; soffit overhang and roof pitch.

In the examples below, the prices shown are what we actually charged to complete the work. In addition to our cost, you will see a range of what other roofing companies could have charged. We determined these ranges by reviewing public permitting records from various projects completed by other local roofing companies this year. In general, we have found our prices to be less than similar, high-level roofing contractors offering similar quality products and service. This is likely in part because we do not employ traditional sales-persons, cutting commission out of the cost of the project.
