When you have trouble with your roof, it can quickly become costly. So you may be wondering what is the cost of a roof repair.
The truth is, a roof replacement isn’t going to be cheap. It’s also impossible to give you an exact price on your replacement without getting on your roof and coming up with an estimate.
Below are a few factors that can help you determine a roof replacement:
There are a lot of factors that go into how much roof replacements will cost you.
One of the major determinants of a roof replacement price is its size, with most houses having an average roof size of about 1700square feet. For a roofer, they estimate the cost of a roof replacement as 10 by 10 foot square, which they call a roofer’s square. The roofer’s square helps roofers determine how much material they will need to replace your roof.
Roofers also have to take into account the pitch of your roof while they are making an estimate on replacement. There is no one standard pitch size where roofs are concerned. It is important you know how we calculate the materials. We look at the overall height of the roof and divide that by the total roof size. The higher the pitch of the roof, the more roof space you have.
The materials you want to use on your roof also go into the cost of your roof. At Ultra Dry roofing, high-quality shingles are always included at no extra cost to you. We never try to sell you shingle upgrades like most other companies do.

Roof Prices in the Midwest
If you live in the Midwest, you can expect to pay between three dollars and five dollars a square foot for roof replacement. Roofs in the midwest typically require a higher pitch because of winter months, or the snow could collapse the roof.

How to Save Money on Roof Replacement Cost
Roof replacement can be an overwhelming and unexpected cost. But there are some ways to save money on the roofing replacement costs.
- Ask for a personal loan from your bank or inquire about a home equity line of credit to space out the time you need to pay for the roof.
- Look into home improvement grants, such as the Repairing and Improving a Home program, the Low-Income Housing Repair program offered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and other state and local resources.
- If you’re replacing the roof due to storm or hail damage to an otherwise healthy roof, consult your homeowners insurance company to see if your policy will cover part or all of the replacement.
