Calculating Sacramento Roofing Service Costs

It’s always good to have an idea of how much you will spend on a Sacrament Roofing Service. Here’s a quick guide to finding out gauging how much you need to plan for a roofing project.  First, some variables:

Materials – Some roofing materials cost more than others. An aluminum roof project is going to cost you less than if you were to have your wood shakes replaced. Likewise, an asphalt shingle repair is significantly less expensive than if you were to have your slate roof repaired.

Type of project – The extent of the roof repair will also determine the price of the project. Localized repairs cost less than major roofing overhauls or roof replacement. If you have an asphalt shingle roof, it’s best to discuss with your contractors the costs of a tear-off or a roof-over.

Roof pitch – The roof pitch refers to the angle of your roof. The steeper the angle, the higher the pitch. Projects done on a roof with a higher pitch require specialized equipment and are more risky. Thus, do expect to pay more.

Contractor – This is where things become tricky. An unlicensed contractor is more likely to charge you less for a roofing project. However, you run the risk of a poorly-executed project by hiring sub-par roofers. You also risk voiding your manufacturer warranty as roofing manufacturers require licensed and certified contractors to install their products.

And now the figures:

NOTE: These figures reflect the general roofing costs in Sacramento as of 2012. These are not meant to replace an estimate provided by a roofer.

So how much does a Sacramento roofing project cost? Supposed you have a 200 sq ft shingle roof, and you need to have most of it replaced, expect to pay anywhere around $120.00 to $200.00 for the materials alone. This includes the transportation of the material from the supplier to your property.

Prices for the labor varies extremely, but to give you an idea, labor cost for the same roof conducted by a licensed roofer will be anywhere between $200.00 to $290.00. You can get the best price for your roof by asking for multiple estimates from more than one roofer.
