Roof estimates should be done by the professionals.

What are Roof Estimates?

Roofing estimates are written proposals provided by roofing contractors detailing the costs associated with a roofing project. They serve as a formal statement of the expected expenses for materials, labor, and related services.

Roof estimates help homeowners make informed decisions regarding the repair, replacement, or installation of a roof. Presented to an insurance adjuster by a contractor, a roofing estimate helps avoid pushback from the insurance company and sets the stage for the contractor to supplement later.

A roof estimate typically includes:

Cost of Labor: The cost of hiring professionals to remove the old roof and install a new roof.

Cost of Materials: Roofing materials, underlayments, flashing, fasteners, and other components.

Duration: How long the project will take.

Scope of Work: All tasks to be performed, from old roofing tear off to final inspections.

Additional Costs: Unexpected expenses such as replacing damaged wood decking or installing additional ventilation.

Roofing industry professionals write ARS roof estimates.

Average Roof Replacement Cost

Roof repair estimates vary widely. On average, homeowners spend anywhere from $5,000 to $25,000 or more on a roof replacement, depending on the materials used and the size and complexity of the roof. Following are figures that represent the national average for roofing materials:

  • Asphalt Shingles: $5,000 – $12,000

  • Wood Shingles or Shakes: $10,000 – $20,000

  • Metal Roofing: $12,000 – $25,000+

  • Tile Roofing: $15,000 – $30,000+

  • Slate Roofing: $20,000 – $50,000+

The installation of wood shingles or shakes for a new roof is a mid range roofing option.

Factors Influencing Roof Replacement Costs

  1. Size of the Roof: A larger roof requires more materials and labor.

  2. Roofing Material: Different materials come with different costs. Asphalt shingles tend to be available for a reasonable price, while materials like slate or high-end metal roofing can be much pricier. Wood shingles or shakes can fall in the mid range.

  3. Roof Complexity: A roof with multiple peaks, skylights, chimneys, and other features will be more labor-intensive and may require specialized materials.

  1. Roof Pitch: Steeper roofs often necessitate special equipment or safety measures.

  2. Removal of the Old Roof: This adds to labor and disposal costs.

  3. Geographical Location: Labor and material costs can vary significantly from one region to another.

  4. Seasonality: Roofing during certain times of the year might result in premium charges due to the challenges presented by the weather.

  5. Warranty: A longer or more comprehensive warranty can add to the cost.

  6. Additional Repairs: Dealing with structural issues, rotten wood, or other problems during the roof replacement adds to overall cost.

  7. Permit Fees: Some locations require building permits for roofing projects.

Estimating materials for a house with a complex roof installation is best done by Xactimate experts.

Why Should Roofers Outsource Estimates Rather Than Calculate Roof Replacement Themselves?

Roofing contractors who estimate roof replacement cost themselves to save money run the risk of omitting key pieces of information that insurance adjusters need to see. Estimates completed by professionals who use Xactimate software (the same software that insurance companies write their estimates with) are accurate and complete. They include the information that insurance adjusters need to see.

An important reason to outsource estimates is that professional roof estimators like ARS understand the balance between front-end estimating and the supplement process on the back end.

ARS estimate writers are industry experts like former roofing contractors.

Roof Cost Calculator

If you’re a seasoned roofing contractor, you know that many factors go into calculating the total cost of a roof replacement.

The choice of roofing material is usually the biggest determinant of cost, with the price per square foot varying widely from a simple asphalt shingle roof to one with architectural shingles, metal shingles, clay tiles, natural slate, or wood shakes. Commercial buildings with EPDM rubber or built up roofs have a different price point for roof costs, and the volume of square footage can benefit total roof replacement cost.

Besides the cost of roofing materials, other key factors impact the per square price to replace a roof: roof size, roof length, roof slope, roof width, partial or full replacement, old shingles that must be removed, a detached garage roof, special features such as skylights, the building location, seasonal weather restrictions, etc.

Xactimate software used by ARS estimate writers contains roofing calculator features.

Xactimate software provides a systemic framework for capturing all the variables discussed above. With this software, estimates are generated that insurance adjusters accept and trust. A roofing company can elect to go through the time consuming process of generating its own cost estimates, but one that hires out the job will get ahead in the game.


Since Xactimate experts write estimates all the time, they are efficient and thorough, and they understand all the finer points of the writing process. The many roofers who hire out their estimates to American Roof Supplements find the ROI undeniable.

Frequently Asked Questions

Roofing prices are calculated on the cost of materials and labor plus permitting fees and warranties.

Homeowners needing to install a new roof usually contact one to three roofing companies for an estimate. A roofing company producing an estimate for a homeowner or an insurance adjuster usually only has one written.

This answer depends on a number of factors: roof area, roof pitch, roof length, roof width, if the old roof needs a tear off, and the type of materials being installed. Labor costs vary with the size of the roof and the difficulty of the installation.

Factors that drive up the typical cost to replace a roof include pricy materials such as premium shingles (architectural shingles), tile, slate, or a standing seam metal roof.
