What goes into the cost of replacing my roof in Dallas - Fort Worth?

Here are the key factors that we will explain in further detail below that go into your roof replacement cost in no particular order: Size of the roof, number of stories, roof slope, roof complexity, labor costs in your area, permits/fees if these apply, roof material and warranties, disposal, and contractor profit, time of year, and unexpected issues. Below us explaining how much does it cost to replace my roof, we will explain XYZ.

  1. Roof Size: The size of the roof area, measured in square feet, directly affects the amount of materials needed and labor required for installation. This is the base of your roof replacement estimate. Taking both the material and size of the roof you then get a general base price for cost per square foot, but that isn’t the final price as the rest of the factors below come into play.

  2. Flashing and Ventilation: Additional components like flashing, vents, and ventilation systems may be necessary for proper installation, contributing to the overall cost. To keep it simple, the larger and more complex the roof is, then requires more of these materials which then plays into a smaller factor of your roof replacement cost.

  3. Roof Pitch: Often expressed as a ratio of vertical rise to horizontal run. Steeper roofs typically require more labor and safety equipment, resulting in higher installation costs compared to low-pitch roofs. Not only is it harder to install the shingle because of the slope, it is harder to get the materials to the installation area. Steeper roofs also typically result in more material waste during installation due to the angle of the roof. This requires specialized cuts and adjustments to fit materials properly. You also will need a more experienced crew for these types of roofs.
  4. Roof Complexity: Factors such as the number of roof valleys, dormers, skylights, chimneys, and other architectural features can increase the complexity of the installation and affect the overall cost. Roof complexity can easily account for a significant portion of the overall roof replacement cost, potentially ranging from 10% to 30% or more, depending on the specific circumstances. These areas are highly susceptible to roof leaks later and we want to take our time installing them properly.

  5. Underlayment and Deck Repair: If the roof deck or underlayment needs repair or replacement, it will add to the total cost of the project. Typically these items are not found until we actually tear everything off the prior roofing system, so when we originally quote you, we build in wiggle room for these potential problems that can occur so no change orders need to be made.

  6. Roofing Material: The type and quality of roofing material chosen, such as asphalt shingles, metal roofing, tile, or slate, will significantly impact the overall cost. On top of this, most styles of roofing systems offer a good, better, best product. For example, a good, better, best product with an asphalt shingle would have a higher wind rating, longer warranty, impact resistance against hail, protection against discoloration, and more. The better the product, the more features you will get, and in turn, you may receive benefits from your insurance. Please get with your agent to discuss any potential carrier discounts.
  7. Labor Costs: The cost of labor, including the number of labor hours required and the prevailing labor rates in the local area, is a significant factor in determining the overall cost of roof replacements. The larger and more complex the roof is, the longer the project will take and in turn, the labor will be more.

  8. Permits/Licenses and Fees: Obtaining necessary permits from local authorities and any associated fees may add to the overall cost of the project. Here in Texas, and specifically Dallas – Fort Worth, you are not required to have a license to be a roofer. However, insurance is still required. This is why it is so important to check your roofer for their insurance, certifications, reviews, testimonials, and photos of their work.

  9. Removal and Disposal: The cost of removing the old roofing material and disposing of debris generated during the replacement process should be considered. If we need to haul away multiple loads, while a small cost, will still be incorporated into the overall cost of your roof replacement.

  10. Contractor Overhead and Profit: Contractors typically factor in overhead costs such as insurance, equipment, and administrative expenses, as well as a profit margin, when determining project pricing. The larger the company, the more overhead they have, however, the more value they can bring(reviews, etc), and potentially manufacture discounts as well.
  11. Location: The cost of living and prevailing market rates for roofing services can vary depending on the geographical location of the property. In the higher-end neighborhoods of Dallas, some contractors will try and increase the price knowing the customer can afford it. Which is overall unethical and we do not do this here at Performance.

  12. Time of year: Roofing materials might be slightly more expensive or less available during peak roofing seasons (spring and fall).
