- Stains on interior ceilings and walls, or mold and mildew growth
- Decay of roof shingles, sheathing, and/or siding
- Missing, cracked or curled shingles
- Dark, “dirty-looking” areas on your roof

If you experience three or more of these symptoms, it is time to consider replacement and installation costs from a reliable roofing contractor. We would be happy to provide a free estimate, and warrant our work.
Roof Replacement Average Cost Per Square Foot

- Wood shingles – $4 to $13
- Slate Shingles – $25 to $60
- Tile shingles – $7 to $10
- Metal shingles – $3 to $15
Pitch of Roof
The pitch of your roof will also affect your average cost per square foot to complete a tear down and installation. We measure the pitch by dividing the rise by the length. Very steep roofs require special harnesses to keep our workers safe, and make stacking of materials more difficult. Therefore, labor costs are much higher for steeper roofs.
Accessibility to Home
The accessibility of the home or building also affects the average cost per square foot to replace a roof. If we can back a truck up your driveway, this makes it far easier to haul away debris, and transport new materials.
Every home or commercial building may have different installed options, which affect the average cost per square foot of a roofing replacement project. Homes may have chimneys, skylights, satellite dishes, exhaust fans, or solar panels installed. Working with these modifications requires more time and greater precision.
