Roof Repair and Replacement Cost Estimates

Roof Repair and Replacement Cost Estimates

This is because a roof that leaks, apart from being a problem in itself, can also cause other problems, such as damage to a home’s interior. In such cases, it is not always necessary to replace the entire roof. Often, repairing small sections would suffice. For serious and persistent leaks, however, an entire roof replacement job is advisable. While roof replacement is not as cheap as an ordinary repair, it doesn’t have to break the bank either.

“How much will the roof repair or replacement job cost me?” is often one the most dreaded questions that come up. If you know where to look and which factors can drive costs up, it may help you get a good deal. Determining the cost of a roof repair or replacement is often a complex process. Expenses vary, but most Toronto roofers  charge per square.

Not only does the rate of a Toronto roof repair job depend on the scope of the project itself, but also on its size, age, condition, materials used, accessories, and labor costs. Even the weather, time of year, and the area you live in affect the price of said projects. As for materials, using asphalt shingles is the least expensive option, ranging from about $ 50 to $ 150 per square. Tile and slate, on the other hand, are the most expensive materials, with prices reaching up to $ 1,000 per square.

Like many other home improvement projects, the cost generally depends on the square foot being covered. As the size of the area increases, so does the price. Similarly, repairing or replacing only a few shingles or a small section of the roof will cost a fraction of the price of replacing an entire square. The size of the roof repair depends on whether other areas of the roof are affected (by the leak, for instance).

As mentioned, your location is also a factor in cost determination. For instance, license costs vary in every state. Even roof requirements change, depending on where one lives. For example, coastal states require hurricane-proofing when any roof repair or replacement is made. License and building permits cost several hundreds of dollars (the average cost is around $ 200), while hurricane-proofing methods such as straps and bracing add another $ 300 to the total cost.

Repairing or replacing a roof can be complicated and often requires much physical work. Labor costs then spike. Some of the labor costs that may be involved and calculated in the roof estimates include tearing off the existing roof (if applicable), felting and shingling the new roof, structural repair of chimneys, flashing jobs, and the “dumping fee,” where applicable. Labor costs for Toronto roof repair  jobs vary, depending on the contractor chosen, so be sure to look around before deciding on any contractor.
