6 Roof Replacement Composite Roofing Cost
There are many factors that go into the cost of a composite roofing replacement. We give each customer focused individual care and attention to consider all the factors specific to their situation.

Call or contact us for free roofing estimate and we will be glad to schedule an appointment and come out to your location to provide a roofing estimate.
#1 - Type of Composite Roofing Shingles
There are many different types of shingles that vary in thickness, color, and style. Different roofing shingle manufacturers vary in cost and quality. Some manufacturers are better than others. The two manufacturers we recommend are CertainTeed and Malarkey Roofing Products. They make great quality shingles that last a lifetime and offer many shingle styles and options. We are certified roofers for CertainTeed and Malarkey. See more details on benefits of the manufacturer warranties below.
#2 - Size of Your Roof
Yes, size matters. The more roof you have, the more roofing material you need to cover the area. The bigger the roof, the more time and man power it takes to complete the job. Naturally, the bigger the composite roof, the more it is going to cost to replace. We love working on big composite roofs and small. Do not hesitate to call regardless of your roof size.
#3 - Complexity of the Layout of Your House
The complexity of your composite roof plays a factor in the cost of your roof. The complexity is something that many people do not consider when thinking through how much their composite roof replacement will cost. Some features that create complexity include the pitch, skylights, number of joints, pipe and vents, chimneys, and more. All of these features need to be considered when calculating the complexity of your roof.
#4 - Accessibility to Your Home
Is your home easy to access for trucks and equipment? To save time, we load the new shingles on the roof. This avoids having to carry the shingles up manually and saves a lot of time and labor. We also have a trash container delivered for old roofing materials to be disposed. If the trash container cannot be placed close to the house, costs will increase. This causes the roofing crew to have to carry all of the debris a longer distance to the containers location. Either way, we can replace a roof just about anywhere. The real question is if the accessibility around your home will increase the cost or your roof replacement, and if so, by how much.
#5 - Current Roof Type
Your current roof type plays a role in the cost of the roof. One possible cost increase can come from multiple layers of older roof shingles under the current roof. Having more material to remove and dispose of leads to more labor and disposal costs. Steep roofs are much more difficult to tear off and require extra attention, leading to a higher overall roof replacement cost. Type of roof matters. Removing and disposing of composite roofing shingles has a different cost then removing and disposing of a concrete tile roof.
#6 - Building Code Standards
Universal building codes and local city and state building codes can play a role in the cost of roof replacement. Not all city’s require the same permit or a permit at all in some cases. We work in many city’s around Seattle and have a great relationship with the permitting departments. It’s very important to know what each city requires permits and for what they require permits. If you do not have the proper permits, an inspector can shut down the job. There is also the danger of the homeowner getting fined if the roofing company does not pull the correct permits.
