New York Roofing Cost Estimating

The average cost to replace a roof in New York is about $7,000. And while this is “only” an average, it serves as a great starting point for your research. In some cases, that replacement cost to New Yorkers was as low as $6,500. And we estimate that even on the high end, the job should not cost more than $8,500.

The reason you see a huge range of pre-estimate “cost estimates” of a new roof  like: $5,000 to $12,000 or $14,000 to $24,000 or $300 per square to $600 per square is because of the unique combination of the above features. You could have a roof that could cost $7,000 or $12,000 based on material choice alone!

For example is your roof is a walker roof (you can walk on it) or is it steep (requiring safety harnesses to work on). Steep roofs will cost more because of mandatory insurance and safety requirements. The other major factor behind the cost is going to be the actual square footage of your home. In the roofing world the size of your roof is measured in “squares” which is 100 square feet.

The cost of roofing materials—shingles, clay tile, or slate stone—can be an important factor in the total cost. In general, asphalt shingles are the most popular material due to their low cost from mass material production. On the other hand, slate and clay roofs are among the most expensive roofing materials.

Besides materials, roofing accessories, such as rain gutters, chimney flashings, etc. can also increase the total project cost.  Roofing accessories such as drip edge and pro starter strips help enhance the durability and longevity of a roofing system, and as such add to the total cost.

Metal roofing is one of the most durable materials you can install, and as such it almost never requires repairs. However, there are a few cases when leaks do happen and need to be fixed:

1. The most common cause of leaks in a metal roof is improper installation around skylights, chimneys and along the valley. Sometimes, homeowners who try to save money on installation, end up hiring unprofessional roofers who lack the technical knowledge and experience necessary to install metal. In this case, its best to hire a metal roofing specialist to fix the leak, so it never happens again.

2. A less common situation is when you roof leaks due to inadequate slope.

The average price to repair a metal roof is $700-1,200
