Roof Size Impacts the Cost of a Roof Replacement

Roofs are measured in squares, which are equal to 100 square feet.  JDH Remodeling will take precise measurements to provide you with an accurate estimate, but you can use the footprint (not square footage, if you have a multi-story home) of your home to calculate the rough size of your roof and get a general idea of the cost of your roof replacement.

Other Factors That Impact New Roof Installation Costs in Washington, DC

Washington DC Roof Replacement Cost

Roof Pitch

The pitch, or slope, or your roof will play a part in the overall cost of this project. The steeper the slope, the more safety protocols need to be followed for the safety of your roofing professional. 

Roof Height

Along the same lines, the higher off the ground your roof is, the more safety procedures need to be used by your roofing professionals. This is going to lead to a longer process and higher overall costs. 

Roofing Materials

At JDH Remodeling, we use both asphalt shingles and metal roofing materials. These materials vary in costs, which will lead to a variety of final costs. If you are working with a specific budget, you will want to contact JDH Remodeling to go over your choices and budget. 

New Installation or Replacement

Another aspect people don’t usually think about is taking into account if this is a replacement, or a new construction installation. If this is a replacement, you will need to budget in the costs to remove and dispose of the old material. If this is a new construction build, that won’t be an issue – gotta love saving some money!
