How Much Does a New Roof Cost? [Infographic]

5 factors that affect the cost of a new roof.

This infographic reviews 5 factors that influence the cost of a new roof in Madison, WI.



So, how much does a new roof cost? Because every home is a little bit different, the answer to that question varies. According to HomeAdvisor, most homeowners in Madison can expect to spend between $5,086 and $9,462 for a new roof. Why such a wide price range? Roofers take into account many factors when determining the cost of your new roof, including:

Repair vs. Replace
An entirely new roof will cost about ten times as much as a normal repair job, so consider the current condition of your existing roof before you budget.

Pitch will directly affect the cost of a new roof. According to Angie’s List, a roof with a 7:12 ratio or higher isn’t walkable, and will often cost more than flatter roofs because it will require special installation equipment.

There’s a wide range of roofing materials that fall into even wider price ranges. Asphalt roofs (one of our specialties) can help you save money, slate and copper rack up the dollar signs, and standing seam metal falls in the mid-range.

Homes with chimneys and skylights will require more costly roof installations because it will take more time for roofers to work around them.

Roofers measure jobs in “squares,” or 10'x10’ sections. If your roof is 1,000 square feet, that’s 10 squares. Once you know the size of your roof in squares, a professional roofer can easily estimate the total removal and installation costs.
