Determining The Cost Of Your New Roof: Use An Estimate Calculator



In order to get a general idea of what it would cost you to put new materials over your head, you should use a roof replacement cost estimator. These calculators require you to take measurements of the area you wish to have covered -- rounded to the closest foot measurement and decide what type of material you want to use (shingles, Spanish tiles, clay tiles, slate, metal roofing, cedar shakes, etc.). You should also have a general idea of the pitch of your roof: Is it flat, steep or somewhere in between?
While using an estimate calculator is not a new idea (window replacement cost estimators, siding cost estimate calculators, etc.) when it comes to home improvements, it is a quick and fairly easy way to determine the cost per square foot of your new roof. It can also help you determine if this is a project that you may want to do yourself to cut installation costs (if you have the time and necessary skill), or if it is worth actually hiring a professional to do it for you.

Remember that putting a new roof onto your existing home adds value to your house. If you're putting it on the market for sale, potential buyers like to see that a house has been well-kept, plus it adds a certain amount of curb appeal. If you plan on staying in the home for any length of time, this investment should bring peace of mind knowing that your abode is safe from the elements for quite a few years (many roofs can last 15-20 years). Don't forget that you may be eligible for a tax credit, if you use energy efficient materials.

It is a good idea to get estimates from several different contractors before hiring any single one to do the work on your roof. You may be surprised by the differences in costs. You can compare them against one another, but you can also compare them using a roof replacement cost estimator from the Internet. Remember, when you contract out work such as this, you often get what you pay for. Bids that are low may use less than desirable materials, and one's that are too high may be trying to rip you off. Going with the person who is somewhere in the middle may be your best bet.
