Most Expensive Roofing Materials


Roofing materials are always a costly proposition but if you want the best and do not mind paying for it, read on to learn of the some of the best options.

Cedar 

Cedar shingles are a decent option if you’re going for a specific home style. These shake-style roofs are commonly found on Cape Cod, colonial and other historically-styled homes. Cedar shakes are very durable too. The Cedar Shake & Shingles Bureau says average lifespan of cedar shakes and shingles is 30-40 years, depending om climate to installation to storms. Even if the shingle itself lasts that long, however, that doesn’t mean they’ll retain their high-end appearance. Cedar as a roofing material is very susceptible to damage. Wood rots and burns easily, so you need to have cedar shakes specifically treated and installed in order to get them as water- and fire-resistant as possible, but even then they’re still at risk of damage. Plus, compared to the run-of-the-mill asphalt shingle, cedar shakes are up to six times more expensive – not always worth the upkeep costs and energy.

Slate 

Slate is by far the most expensive roofing material on the market. It’s ten times more costly than the average asphalt shingle as it pairs well in Gothic, Tudor, Chateau or other expensively styled, historic-looking homes. Since slate is stone, it’s  fire resistant and, depending on its mining location, can last from 60-200 years. However, stone becomes more brittle and less impact-resistant as it ages, and where the material is mined can have a huge impact on how well it holds up over the years. To find a good quarry, you’ll have to do a lot of research and pay the high price to have it shipped to you. Another issue that typically pops up with slate is slipping — when tiles slip out of place or fall out completely after installation. Low-quality manufacturing techniques, “over-nailing” and walking on the tiles during installation are the most common causes of slipping.

What Are The Parts Of A Roof Called


 

A roof has many parts. In this guide we will break down the different components of a rood so you will be in the know. Read on to learn more.

Shingles

Made from many different materials, they form the outer protection of the roof from the elements and give character to the dwelling.

Joint Covers aka Flashing

Flashing is either rigid or flexible and can be made from plastic, steel or aluminum. It stops water from flowing near the openings of the roof and can be found in the based and valleys of walls, roof vents, chimneys and vents.

Plumbing Vent

Emerging from the roof, this pipe allows air inside the plumbing system that allows wastewater to floe to the sewer or septic system.

Deflector

A cardboard or Styrofoam insert between two roof rafters allowing the free flow of air over the insulation near the soffits. There needs to be a minimum of two inches of space under the decking.

Roof Vents

Enclosed and made of plastic or metal they feature fins and openings making sure the attic is ventilated. The best ones are open on all four sides and rise above roof level producing a suction effect. There also has to be an air inlet at the base of the roof. Frequently made with perforated aluminum, this closes off the lower side of the eaves.

Drip Edge

This is the moulding covering the roof edge and reduces the risk from water.

Underlay Membrane

This protective membrane goes under some or all of the asphalt shingles to prevent water infiltration caused by “ice dams” in winter.

Valley

The “V-cut” angle along the junction of two slopes of a roof.

Decking (or sheathing)

Usually made from 1⁄2-inch plywood, the decking closes and reinforces the roof structure and provides a nailbed for the shingles.

Roof Edge

All the boards running along the edge of the roof or eaves. Also known as a fascia.

Attic

The space under the roof. The attic must be ventilated to protect the roofing system against excessive heat in summer and warm moist air generated by the house in winter.

Saddle

A structure located behind the higher side of a chimney (or similar projections from the roof) to divert rainwater around it.

Ridge

Horizontal line at the top of the roof.

How Long Do Wood Roof Shingles Last

As we said the average life of a wood shingle roof is thirty to forty years and a good quality proeprly-installed wood shake roof will last twenty to forty years. However the life expectancy of the roof can vary depending on some of the following factors:

  • Flashing material, installation quality, proper details
  • How the shingles were installed
  • How the wood shingle or shake roof is ventilated. For example wood shingles installed on solid plywood roof decking can be expected to have a shorter life than the same shingles installed over skip sheathing or spaced nailers that provide plenty of ventilation.
  • The pitch of the wood shingle or wood shake roof (its slope)
  • The wood shingle or wood shake grade or quality
  • The wood shingle or wood shake roof’s exposure to overhanging trees or debris that may hold water on its surface
  • The wood shingle or wood shake roof’s exposure to shade that may promote moss or lichens growth
  • The wood shingle or wood shake roof’s sun and weather exposure

Besides selecting a durable wood, the most important factor is to make a determination of its ability to dry out from both the top and the bottom when wet. Two approaches are used:

  • Create a system of spaced sheathing above the solid sheathing using vertical and horizontal battens
  • Use a breathable underlayment applied over the sheathing

Metal Roof Installation

Getting a metal roof installed costs an average of $5,000 to $12,000. As reported by US Census, the average square feet of an average American home is 1,700 square feet. However, calculating the total cost of your project isn’t just knowing your square footage. Material costs can fluctuate and sometimes can become volatile.

Take into account:

  • Each factor typically accounts for a 1/3 of your project total
  • Professional roofers calculate material prices in squares (100 square feet)
  • Material prices will include a waste percentage of between 5 and 20 percent.
  • Labor rates vary considerably from one area to another.
  • Overhead price will include shipping, which can average $75 or more.

How Much Will A Metal Roof Save Me?

Though a roofing project has a considerable up-front investment, if you plan on living in your home for a long time, the savings are worth it.

Benefits of a Metal Roof:

  • Saves up to 40% on your power bill
  • Some get insurance discounts of up to 30%
  • Can regain up to 95% in resale
  • Takes less maintenance than asphalt
  • Lasts at up to four times longer than asphalt

Average Material Costs of a Metal Roof

How Much Does A New Roof Cost?

On average a new roof costs about $7,500.  Smaller roofs or those using less expensive roofing will cost less. While larger roofs or those using premium materials will cost more.


Paying for a new roof is costly, but an important investment in your home.

Planning for how much this will cost helps budget and prepare for investing in your home.

We will explore how much new roofs cost in this post to help you understand new roof costs.


How Much Does A New Roof Cost?

While the national average for a new roof is about $7,500 dollars the typical range can be between $5,000 and $10,000. The lowest end roof on the smallest of homes can be as low as about $1,250 dollars.  In contrast, the largest homes with the finest roofing materials can cost up to $30,100.

New Roof Cost Factors

The roof over your head is the very idea of shelter, safety, and warmth. Your home is likely one of the largest investments you’ll make and the largest purchase. Keeping your roof in good condition prevents water damage and unbelievably expensive repairs. There are 8 cost factors that affect what you’ll need to spend to get a new roof put on your home.

1.      Roof Pitch or Steepness

How steep your roof is can make it easier or more difficult to put on a new roof. The steeper it is the longer it will take and the more safety equipment will be needed.

2.      Size of Your Roof

Clearly the more time and materials it takes to put on a new roof, the more it will cost. Larger roofs require more roofing material, more prep, and more time to put on the new roofing.

3.      Type of Roofing

Different types and brands of roofing will have different costs.  When you compare traditional shingles to something like slate, the cost difference is significant. If you want a longer lasting more visually stunning roofing material, it will cost more.

4.      How The Roofing Is Installed

Various types of roofing are installed in different ways. If the roofing you’ve chosen requires a more labor intensive installation process, it will take longer, and increase the cost of your new roof.

5.      Where The Property Is

Different regions of the country have different building codes. This means that if you have a roof install in Phoenix and another in Salt Lake City the cost may be different as the codes are different. Some will require additional steps to handle snow vs. hot summers.

6.      Labor Intensive Removal

If your old roofing requires more time to take off than others it will cost more to get a new roof. This can be the case if you have multiple layers of old roofing. Some DIY homeowners or fast and easy roofers will simply slap down a new layer instead of removing old roofing leaving extra work for later.

7.      Additional Preparation

In cases where homes have a lot of things sticking out of the roof that needs attention, it will cost more. Such items include plumbing pipes, skylights, and chimneys. These items that stick out of the roofing are leak points and require protective barriers called flashings. Flashings need to be inspected, repaired, or replaced in preparation for a new roof.

Clearly there’s a lot that goes into installing a new roof. The more of these things or the more costly roofing you want to install, the higher the cost will be for your new roof. Professional roofers will ensure that you’re getting the right treatment and corners aren’t being cut to offer you a lower price. This is to safeguard you from having easily avoidable problems later down the line.

Roof Repair vs. New Roof Installation

Simply because your ceiling started to drip during the last storm doesn’t necessarily mean you need a whole new roof. It’s important to have a roof inspection to see if it is an isolated area that needs repair, of it is time for a new roof.  With the average new roof costing about $7,000 and most roof repairs only costing around $600 the savings is significant!

Reasons To Choose Installing A New Roof

There are clear reasons to choose to install a new roof over getting an old roof repaired over and over. These situations include:

Extensive Roof Leaks

One very common and valid reason to choose to install a new roof is when you’ve got leaks in a lot of spots or very bad leaks. This can be a sign the original roofing wasn’t installed correctly and you’ll be chasing your tail with frequent repairs.

When The Roof Is Older

Older roofing that is starting to leak is another situation where a new roof is better.  When roofing is at the end of its useful life it should be replaced with a new roof.  Things that can reduce your old roofs life include attic ventilation, the type of roofing, maintenance, and earlier work that was done on the roof.  Keep in mind that most common roofing is made to last about 20 years.

Improving Appearance Of Property

One very common reason people choose to install new roofs is to improve the look and value of their home. New roofing, especially the more visually stunning, improves the look of your home from the street.  This increases your property value and can help you compensate for some of the cost of the property.

New Roof Cost Breakdown

One thing to understand when getting a quote for roofing is many roofers provide “cost per square”. This will include the materials and labor to remove old roofing, prep the roof, and install the new roof.  Quotes for new roofs include the following:

  • Removal of old roofing
  • Cost of new roofing materials
  • Additional elements for hot or cold regions
  • The labor hours to get the new roof installed
  • Cost to remove waste

Roofing companies who quote over the phone do so based solely on your square footage numbers. The quote might go up if they encounter unexpected or unusual roofing challenges.  These include things such as numerous flashing needing repair, excessive layers of old roofing, the pitch of the roof is steeper than normal, or there’s lots of eaves and slopes that require more labor hours.

Cost Of New Roof Material by Type

Some new roof materials are more costly than others.  In most cases the more costly the material the longer the new roof will last. When you compare traditional asphalt shingles to slate roofing the expected life span and cost are a night and day difference.

Metal Roofs

A metal roof is one that is among the longest lasting  new roof options. This is a great option for home owners who have settled in and aren’t planning on moving.  Steel metal roofs range in cost from about $5,000 to about $21,500 depending on the size and type of roof you’ve got.

Wood Shake Roofs

This old and traditional roofing option is visually attractive, but isn’t as durable as modern roofing.  The cost of installing wood shake roof will range from about $7,000 for natural wood shakes to $15,000 for fire resistant wood shake roofing.

Asphalt Shingle Roofs

Asphalt shingles roofing is one of the most common roofing types and one of the least costly. A new roof asphalt shingle roof can cost from around $1,650 to $8,000.  Newer longer lasting dimensional asphalt shingles will last longer but cost more than traditional options.

Tile Roofs

Tile is a long lasting and visually stunning roofing option. The cost of a new tile roof typically ranges between $7,500 and $20,500. This cost will go up if you choose to install ceramic tiles or other options such as custom shapes, colors, or glazing.

Slate Roofs

Slate gives metal roofing a run for its money in durability but beats it in any homeowner’s option for appearance. It’s natural look justifies the increased cost for new slate roofs.  For a home that’s got a 3,000 square foot roof the cost of a new slate roof will run between $26,500 and $110,500. Synthetic slate options drastically reduce the cost of new slate roofs to about $20,500 to $27,500 (for 3,000 square foot roofs).

Old Roof Removal & Reinforcement Costs

Generally, the cost to remove old roofing costs about $4 dollars per square foot. That means most roofers are charging between $40 and $75 dollars an hour to remove old roofing. That means for a typical home the cost to remove old roofing will run between $500 and $1,000 dollars. The complexity, steepness, and location of the new roofing project also impact the cost of removing old roofing.

Older roofs, especially those that have leaked, might need new timbers in the roof. These are load bearing structures that support your roof and the roofing materials. If you’ve got broken or rotting joists you’ll need to have them replaced before new roofing can be installed.
