Whether you are preparing to install a brand new roof or scheduling repairs, estimating your roofing costs can be confusing. At Christian Roofing we provide a detailed and thorough estimate for every job. Our quotes include line items for materials, labor, permits, fees, and other considerations that could impact the price or timeline. Roofing costs should be determined after the completion of an inspection; be wary of a roofing company that is willing to give you a formal quote over the phone. It’s important that the contractor carries out their inspection before accurately estimating your roofing costs.
Book an Inspection
A comprehensive roof inspection includes multiple checks to ensure the strength and security of the entire structure. During the inspection, the roofing contractor will perform a series of tests that can detect issues beneath the surface. Your roof inspection should include a thorough review of both the inside and outside of the property, as well as an on-roof survey. At Christian Roofing, our comprehensive roof inspections includes several key components, such as:
- Comprehensive review of the internal and external walls, windows, gutters, and siding
- Inspection of the ceilings, chimneys, skylights and attic
- Check for signs of rodents, mold, or insect damage
- Review of the roofing materials including shingles, tiles, flashing, fasteners, seams and gutters
- Check for leaks, holes, and signs of damage
- Noting of the age and overall condition of the roof
- Signs of missing materials that have fallen off over time or after a storm
- Review of the structural security of the roof, including the beams and supporting elements
Following a detailed inspection, the contractor will be able to make an informed assessment of possible repair or replacement costs. Book your free estimate today.
Consider Material Options
Today’s market offers multiple roofing styles and materials to choose from. From traditional Spanish tile to affordable single-ply solutions, Christian Roofing offers a range of solutions to meet every client’s needs. While materials like stone and ceramic can come with higher upfront costs, their durability may lend to lower maintenance costs over time. The latest EPDM materials (made from highly durable synthetic rubbers) offer a cost effective solution that is also easy to maintain. Your choice of material will depend on the size, style, and functionality of your property. If you are not sure where to start, book a complimentary consultation with your local roofing contractor to learn about the options. At Christian Roofing we offer a range of materials, including:
- Ceramic tile
- Wood or asphalt
- Synthetic tile & shingles
- Modified Bitumen
- TPO Roofing
- Cool Roof Solutions
- Torch Down Systems
Determine the Scope of Work
When estimating your roofing costs you’ll also need to understand the overall scope of the job. In some cases a small patch or partial repair may be all that is necessary, while in other scenarios a full roof replacement will be the most beneficial option. After your estimate the roofing contractor will compile a list of factors that will impact the job, including:
- Size and overall condition of the roof
- Additional design features like skylights, chimneys, and shingle patterns
- Structural damages
- Insect, mold or rodent infestations
- Hours of labor required
- Disposal fees
- State or county permits
- Installation or replacement of solar panels
With all of these factors in mind your contractor will be able to provide an accurate estimate for your roofing costs.
When to Repair vs. Replace the Roof
One of the biggest factors in estimating your roofing costs will be deciding between a roofing repair or a full roofing replacement. Certain widespread structural issues or decades of neglect may require a comprehensive roof replacement, whereas small holes or leaks can be patched and repaired as needed. The overall age of the roof as well as changes to the structure of the house can also bring about the need for a roof replacement. In many cases the roofing contractor will provide a list of options with pro’s and con’s so that you can make an informed decision.
Additional Design Features
When repairing or replacing your roof, you may elect to add features like solar power, skylights, or enhanced insulation. While these design features can generate additional costs, they also increase the value of your property over time. As a full-service roofing company, Christian Roofing offers solar panel installation and other options that will drive a return on investment.
