This is an important question that can leave you feeling concerned about budgeting for the project. At Tops Roofing, we offer fair pricing for high-quality roofing services in Southern Ontario and the Greater Toronto Hamilton area. If you're considering replacing your old roof with a new one, we can help you understand what to expect and provide you with a fair and accurate estimate for the job.
To make things easier, we'll use shingles as an example because they're the most commonly requested roofing style by homeowners, making it a perfect base for our cost estimating. While there are many roofing product manufacturers, shingle types, styles, colors, and warranties, we will be using the most popular choice among homeowners as our base for all cost average estimating. The Limited Lifetime 50-year Fibreglass Laminate Shingle is our standard (pro-rated warranty). This shingle type is a 2-ply shingle having the designed 2nd layer laminated onto the first layer, and fiberglass refers to the shingle mat that the asphalt and protective colored stone coating are adhered to. Other roofing styles like slate, cedar, and custom roofing have different pricing structures. While all manufacturers offer standard 50-year shingles, they also have better and best varieties with unique designs and warranties. Keep in mind that warranties are often just clever marketing and these shingles typically last around 22-25 years.
When you opt for a standard roof replacement, our team will take care of everything from start to finish. This includes the removal, disposal, and replacement of your existing shingles, as well as the installation of ice shield, valleys, roof vents, exhaust vents, stack flashings, and general caulking. We'll also make sure to clean up thoroughly daily until the job is done.
Please note that underlay protection, flashings, plywood, height premium, access premium, and skylight replacement are not included in our standard roof replacement package. We're always here to answer your questions and provide a personalized quote, tailored to your specific needs. And we'll also make sure to keep you informed and educated throughout the entire process.
Understanding the expenses associated with roofing is based on the area that needs to be covered. When calculating the cost of a roof replacement, we factor in the slope to ensure proper water drainage. However, the slope can vary across different sections of the roof and is determined by its rise. To calculate the roof's area, you need to measure from the ground and account for the soffit or overhang, then multiply the length by the width by the pitch multiplier, which varies based on the slope angle.
When estimating the cost of a new roof, it's important to balance your budget with quality. Don't rely solely on warranties, as a 50-year shingle might not actually last that long. At Top's Roofing Company, we can provide expert advice on selecting the best materials and additional warranty options for greater durability. Contact us first for a consultation.
