A new roof costs $5,000 to $10,500 on average for asphalt shingles, and a metal roof costs between $8,000 and $30,000. Roof installation costs depend on the roof size, materials selected, structural issues, and old roof removal.
Roof replacement takes 1 to 3 days on average. The time to install a roof increases with challenging weather conditions, job complexity, or accessibility such as a steep roof pitch.
Minor damages such as missing shingles, corroded flashing, or small leaks need roof repair. Roofs older than 20 years, repairs costing more than $3,000, or damage affecting more than 25% of the roof requires a full replacement.
Installing a new roof increases home value by $5,000 to $15,000 when reselling. Roof replacement has a 60% to 70% return on investment. New roofs also come with a 15 to 20-year warranty.
Asphalt shingle roofs last 10 to 30 years on average, metal roofs last 30 to 75 years, and clay tiles, copper, or slate roofing lasts 50 to 100 years. Snow, hail, hurricanes, and other weather conditions reduce the life span of all roof types.
