How much is a new roof? Ask Rock Solid Exteriors

When homeowners are considering construction of a new roof, the first question that comes to mind is, “How much is a new roof.” It doesn’t really matter if you are looking for a roof replacement or a new roof, the cost for a new roof cannot be determined without taking a few things into consideration. The reason is simple, every roof is different. We can freely say that roofs are custom-made products. In addition, this task is finished by different contractors and they value their work different. So, if you are interested in learning more about new roof cost, you should know that there is no universal answer about how much this important part of the house will cost you. Of course, you should definitely learn more about the things that affect the final price.

How much is a new roofRoofing materials

Let’s start with the roofing materials. The vast majority of roofing products are products that are mostly made of petroleum. There is no doubt that they are durable and well-built, but this is the reason why they are costly too. According to some experts, the materials make up to 40% of the final cost of the new roof. It is worth mentioning that this factor is not that important when it comes to flat roofs. The fact is that asphalt shingle roof prices are heavily affected by the materials. Needless to say, these shingles make the roof more attractive and provide more protection.

How much is a new roofRoof Size

Generally speaking, the size of the roof is the most important factor that has impact on the price of all types of roofs. This is quite logical because if the roof is bigger, it will take more materials and longer installation process to complete this task. However, homeowners should remember that not all small roofs are inexpensive because there is another factor that contributes to the estimated cost.

Level of complexity and construction of the roof

Finally, the third factor that has direct impact on the final price is the level of complexity. If we are talking about flat roofs, this factor has very small impact. It might become important in case there are certain issues with water draining that must be resolved. In addition, when it comes to flat roof replacement and the roof has multiple layers of roofing material this may require more time and effort which ultimately means higher cost. The situation is even more complex when it comes to asphalt shingle roof. These sloped roofs have a pitch to them. If the pitch is too steep, roofers must find an alternative way to walk and work on the roof. Finally, if there are some special features on the roof, it will require more time and effort to finish the roof (higher level of complexity).

There is no doubt that a new roof is an investment that will last for a long period of time. However, it is a
good idea to check whether it is a better idea to opt for roofing repair. In order to find out what you need, you should consult a professional roofing contractor.

Rock Solid sent Joe to my house 1day after the devastating windstorm several weeks ago. Due to how busy they were, Joe didn't make it to our house until the sun was setting. We thought we'd have to reschedule, but Joe got a ladder and a flash light and headed up onto our roof. He immediately identified the worst spots, and though it was getting dark, he still made sure that those parts were tarped. Joe met with our insurance adjuster, gave us shingle samples and helped us pick the right shingle for our house. Jeremy and his crew installed our new roof. They were professional and courteous. They paid great attention to detail and did a thorough clean up. My husband and I couldn't be more pleased with the work and the look of our home. Thank you!read more

Levi (Owner of Rock Solid) and I have been very close friends for 25 years, so naturally he was the very first person I called when I saw shingles scattered across my lawn during Michigan’s 2nd biggest wind storm in history. He said he would have someone at my house tomorrow to assess the situation, and he’ll personally call me with the results. The following day I had someone on my roof while I was at work, and Levi called me later that afternoon to let me know temporary coverage was applied and that he’ll have someone out at my house about 2-weeks to repair the damage. He was honest with me over phone, describing to me that he needs to focus his resources on those homes in which temporary covering would not suffice and roof replacement was mandatory. Well exactly 15 days later I get a text from Levi letting me know that someone would be out to repair my roof. I was extremely pleased how timely the roof repair was done, accurate to the dates he provided up front. I mentioned in the beginning that I’m friends with Levi as I want to share with you the morals in which I know he stands for. He’s honest, hard-working, kind, fair, and trust worthy and during this situation I got to see all those ethics applied from Levi as a business owner. I would highly recommend Rock Solid Exteriors to any of my family or friends!!!!!read more

I needed a new roof and wanted to look a little more into this company because I had a friend use them, and she had nothing but good things to say about the company. I notice that Joe Minauro's name was mentioned in one of the past clients reviews so when I called I had requested him,, Joe promptly responded and scheduled a appointment with us, then after we started going over everything with him you would have thought we were Joe's only customers , but I knew this not to be true his phone was ringing none stop. Joe has been very attentive and we felt taken care of through the whole process. Thanks Joe!read more

Kudos to this company and the crew! They took my tired looking mobile home and made it look like new. I had siding and gutters replaced. What a great experience from the initial visit with the sales representative to the installation crew. Very professional, when the job was done they put everything back in my flower bed, my grill back and even my trash cans. Then I noticed they fixed a loose board on my steps. I highly recommend them.read more
