6 Roof Replacement Metal Roofing Cost Factors

Cost Factor #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 metal roof, the more it is going to cost to replace. We love working on big metal roofs and small. Do not hesitate to call regardless of your roof size.
Cost Factor #3 - Complexity of the Layout of Your House
The complexity of your metal 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 metal 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.
Cost Factor #4 - Accessibility to Your Home
Is your home easy to access for trucks and equipment? To save time, we load the new products on the roof. This avoids having to carry the new roofing product 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, cost of disposal increases. The added distance 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.
Cost Factor #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 metal roofing shingles has a different cost then removing and disposing of a concrete tile roof.
Cost Factor #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.
There are many more factors that can effect the cost of metal roofing, however these are the basics. Call or contact us for a free roofing estimate and we will be glad to schedule an appointment and come out to your location to provide a roofing estimate.
