How much does roof replacement cost?By Stacy Mellete
Roof replacement costs between $4,500 to $15,000 -- this range depends on numerous factors, including size, pitch, accessibility, and materials. Generally, roofers charge per roofing square meter. A 10-by-10-foot area is equal to one roofing square. So, if your roof is 3,000 square feet, it should be broken down into 30 roofing square meters.
Location is another factor that affects prices because labor and materials costs can vary by region. Roof replacement service in the south can cost between $3 to $5 per roofing square meter, while in the north and west coast it can range from $6 to $9.
In Tampa Bay, an asphalt shingle roof replacement can range from $5 to $6 per square foot, while metal roofs can cost you up to $10,500.

Does slope or pitch affect the price?
Yes, slope or pitch can affect pricing. For steeper roofs, your contractor may charge more money as the installation process is more difficult and requires special equipment. The complexity of the roof’s design may require specialized installation or additional materials.
Roofing Material Costs
Material costs may vary between roof types, and some may require more labor and equipment than others. While asphalt shingles can last up to 20 years, metal roofs can last up to 50 years or more, which is one of the most significant factors in determining the type of roofing materials you want.
