Some people want a strait forward answer to how much their roof repair or new roof installation will cost. Repairing or installing a new roof depends on many different things like the location of your home, the size of your roof, the condition of your roof, the roof materials, including the one’s that you will choose, some come with a 20 year warranty and some with a 50 year warranty and the price is different. It also depends on how many roof layers you have. In New Jersey for example you are allowed to have up to two layers, so you can install a new roof layer on an old one but you cannot install a new layer on a second layer. So this means that you need to remove all the layers of the roof until you get to the plywood and then reinstall a new roof. If you have only one roof layer we can go over it with a second layer of roof tiles, which will be much cheaper and faster.
Also, the condition of the plywood will change the price dramatically as plywood is usually damaged from a roof that has leaked for a long time and removing and installing new plywood can add around 30% to the roofing cost. Not to mention the size of the plywood, there is 1/2 inch plywood and 3/4 inch plywood, 3/4 inch is recommended.
A new roof costs are usually measured by squares (a square is 100 sq feet). A simple repair will probably cost you a few hundred dollars and a complete new roof might cost you a couple thousand dollars, and again we need to consider all the components, location, condition and size in order to consider a good price for your roofing repair or installation cost.
