Asphalt Shingle Roof Installation Cost Factors

-Size of the house. The contractor will consider both the square footage and the height of your home (one, two, three stories). The square footage will be used to determine the cost of time and materials, and the height of your home will determine the need for additional equipment.

-Are you going to cover or tear-off your existing roof? Asphalt shingle installation will cost less if the contractor installs the new roof over the existing roof. The cost will increase if the contractor has to tear-off or remove the existing shingles. Two layers of shingles is the average maximum in most areas of the country.

- Is there asbestos? The cost of asphalt shingle installation may increase if your existing roof contains asbestos shingles.

- What style and quality shingles are your installing? Shingles come in a range of styles and life expediencies. Architectural shingles cost more than smooth shingles, and lifetime shingles will cost more than 20 year shingles. You can control the cost of installing asphalt shingles depending on which shingles you choose.

- Does the roof deck require repair or replacement? The cost of installing asphalt shingles will be less if your current roof is in good condition. If it is necessary for the contractor to repair or replace the roof deck, it will increase the cost of asphalt roof installation.
