Whether you’re in your forever home or looking to sell, a JHL metal roof is a worthwhile investment.
Demand for metal roofs has doubled in recent years, making it the second most popular residential material. Much of its growth is due to the adoption of more resilient materials that provide long-term value rather than short-term gains.
Let’s look at some numbers. Adding in roofing materials, here are the national averages for the cost of a new roof:
Due to the long list of variables that can affect roof cost, these averages have a fairly large window, including:
- Location: Labor costs vary across the county, and since these make up 70% of the cost, this variable can have a significant impact on the final price tag. The permits and licenses (and their cost) required for a new roof also vary by region.
- Contractor Pricing: Quotes can vary from contractor to contractor — even within the same area — which is why it’s important to get multiple bids for your project.
- Reroofing vs. Roof Replacement: Reroofing is the placement of a new layer of roofing material on top of an existing roof. Roof replacement is when the old roofing material and liner are completely stripped from the roof, exposing the deck. Re-roofing is the fastest and most cost-effective way to upgrade your roof.
- Type of dwelling: Two-story dwellings, complex building designs, and other variables unique to dwellings can affect the overall cost. Additionally, if any structural elements of the property are damaged, they will need to be repaired before a new roof can be installed, and additional costs may be added.
While the cost of a new roof can vary by region, one thing remains constant when it comes to the cost of a new roof: a lower installation price doesn’t always mean it’s cheaper.
For example, a traditional 3-piece asphalt shingle roof is one of the cheapest roofing materials on the market, but you get what you pay for. With an average lifespan of only 12 to 20 years, traditional asphalt roofing can become one of the most expensive roofing materials over time due to frequent roof replacements—especially compared to metal roofs that last two to three times longer Compare.
