If you’re considering replacing your roof, one of the first questions you’ll need to answer is, “How much will it cost to replace my roof?” The cost of roof replacement can vary widely, depending on factors like the size and pitch of your roof, the type of roofing materials you choose, and the size of your property. Our roofing calculator can help you estimate the cost of replacing your roof.
To use the roofing calculator, enter your property’s dimensions, select the type of roofing materials you want to use, and then click “Next.” The roofing calculator will estimate the total costs associated with your roof replacement project.
Keep in mind that these estimates are just that – estimates. The best way to get an accurate quote on the cost of replacing your roof is to consult with a qualified roofing contractor like those at RoofsOnly.com. They can look at your specific roof and provide a more accurate cost quote.
How are roof replacement costs calculated?
The cost of replacing your roof is calculated based on several factors, including:
- The size of your roof – This is typically measured in square footage. The larger your roof, the more it will cost to replace.
- The type of roofing materials you choose – Many different types of roofing materials are available on the market, from asphalt shingles to metal roofs. The material you choose will impact the cost of your roof replacement.
- The pitch of your roof – Roofs with a higher pitch (or slope) are more challenging to work on and therefore tend to be more expensive to replace.
- The size of your property – Larger homes or buildings require more materials and labor to replace the roof. They will therefore be more expensive to replace.
- The geographic location of your property – Roofing costs can vary depending on the region of the country you live in.
These are just a few factors that can impact the cost of replacing your roof. For a thorough inspection to determine whether a replacement is necessary or straightforward repairs will do, schedule a consultation with a qualified roofing contractor. They will be able to consider all of these factors and provide you with a more accurate quote compared to only using our roofing calculator.
Does the type of material change the roof replacement calculation?
The type of roofing material you choose will significantly impact the cost of replacing your roof. Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing material and are the most affordable option. Still, they also need to be replaced more often. Metal roofs are also becoming more popular but can be more expensive than asphalt shingles. Other roofing materials, like slate or tile, can be more expensive.

What is the slope of a roof? Why does it affect my estimate?
In addition to the cost of materials and labor, there are other factors that can impact the cost of replacing your roof. One of those factors is your roof’s slope, or “pitch.” Roofs with a higher pitch (or slope) are more challenging to work on and therefore tend to be more expensive to replace.
The slope of a roof is determined by the amount of rise (vertical height) divided by the amount of run (horizontal distance). For example, if your roof has a rise of 6 feet and a run of 12 feet, its slope would be 6/12 or 1/2.
It is more challenging for roofers to do their job safely and effectively on a roof with a steep slope than on a flat roof, thus the higher cost. In some cases, special equipment may even be required to complete the job.
If you’re considering replacing your roof, be sure to discuss the slope with your contractor.
