A roof is a very important part of a home and a necessary investment. Your roof keeps both your home and your family safe. That is why it is so important to replace your roof when it is needed instead of putting it off.
We understand that needing a new roof never comes at a convenient time. A lot of people dread having to pay off a new roof due to its high prices. However, as a homeowner, the condition of your roof is your responsibility and neglecting it will cost you even more money down the line. A lot of people are not sure how much money a roof replacement even costs, yet they still put it off. Today we will be talking about how much a new roof costs as well as why you should invest in a high-quality roof for your home.
How much will a new roof cost?
Before we can answer this question we must quickly go over how to tell when you need a new roof. The type of roofing material used as well as how well your roof is maintained will affect the lifespan of your roof. If you are unsure of your roof’s current condition, schedule an inspection with a reputable roofing company.
This may be frustrating to hear, but it is hard to give an exact answer to how much a new roof costs. Each roof and each situation is very different and will have different prices. Other variables that can affect the total price of a new roof include roofing material type, roof size, the conditions of the existing roof, and more.
On average a homeowner can expect anywhere from $10,000 – $25,000 on a new roof. Remember, this is just the average and this number can be much higher depending on the factors listed above and more. To get the most accurate idea of how much a new roof would cost you, have a roofing contractor from a reputable roofing company come out and give you a quote.
Why should I invest in a high-quality roof?
When it comes to roofing, people try to save money wherever possible. We can’t blame them, everyone loves a good deal. However when it comes to roofing that is rarely a good sign. If a company is offering you a much better deal than the majority of other roofing companies, that should be a red flag.
You truly get what you pay for when it comes to roofing, and anything very cheap will be very cheap quality. Instead, it is always best to invest in a high-quality roof, even if it means spending more money. Here are some reasons why investing in a high-quality and professionally installed roof is worth it.
You can get a longer roof lifespan
After investing a large amount of your hard-earned money into a new roof, you want to make sure that you get the most out of it. The lifespan of your roof is proof that you succeeded in doing just that.
The lifespan of a roof is dependent on a few things, but the most important one is what type of roofing material is used. The more expensive or “luxury” materials tend to last the longest. Asphalt shingles on the other hand are great, but you will have to replace your roof much sooner.
It’s important to note here that if your roof is installed incorrectly it will shorten the lifespan. This means that even if you bought the most expensive roofing material and it got installed incorrectly, it will not reach its full lifespan. That is why it is so important to pay for experienced professionals who charge normal rates, not cheap workers looking for a quick buck. The faster your roof goes bad, the sooner you have to spend more money on another one.
You save money over time
Like we said before, a roof is an investment. When your money is on the line you want to make sure that it is well spent and lasts as long as possible. Any properly installed new roof is going to cost a decent chunk of money which may seem like a big deal at the moment, but you will be saving more money in the long run if you do it this way.
If you were to decide to go with a cheaper roof option you will find yourself needing a new roof sooner and spending much more money over time. This is because cheaper than normal roof jobs often mean that corners are being cut somewhere in the process. This can include using cheaper materials, skipping parts of the installation process, or even just working super fast and poorly.
When any corners are cut you are likely to find yourself with roof damage and need repairs often. The repairs eventually will not be enough and that is when a replacement is needed. Overall, it is always best to invest in a high-quality roof of the bat to prevent yourself from this extra hassle and save yourself money.
You tend to have a better-looking roof
There are a lot of people out there who care deeply about the overall aesthetic of their home and its curb appeal. Curb appeal is how your home looks to others from the street or sidewalk. When you pay for a cheap new roof you are most likely getting the cheapest materials and very cheap labor which means a more rushed and inaccurate installation.
When money is withheld from roof work, it shows visibility most of the time. Again, this is because either corners are cut during the installation process intentionally, or the job is done so rushed that the precision and attention to detail are not there.
Investing in a high-quality roof means you get to choose a better roofing material and the quality of the installation is much better. This difference is very noticeable from the outside. Overall your home is left with a more clean, sleek, and uniform look to it when done this way.
Wrapping it up
It is very hard to provide an accurate price for a new roof without seeing your current roof and knowing all the nitty gritty details. We understand it’s tempting to save some money, but it’s not worth it when it comes to roofing. Having a more expensive but high-quality roof installed will cost you far less money in the long run than if you went with the cheapest option. Your home will also look so much more aesthetically pleasing and it will boost your curb appeal too.
Overall, you will save more money in the long run if you get your roof installed correctly and at the normal price the first time around. It’s better to not take shortcuts with some things and roofing is one of them.
We hope that you have a better idea of what goes into determining the cost of a roof replacement and how much the average price is. We also hope that you have a better understanding of why it is better and more important to invest in a high-quality roof rather than a cheaper option.
