4 Factors that Determine Roofing Rates

Roof estimates vary from roofer to roofer, but knowing the biggest pricing factors should give you an idea of what to expect for your project. In today’s video, we will discuss 4 of the biggest factors that can determine the cost of your roofing project. Stay tuned!

#1. Size of the Roof or Property

Not surprisingly, the size of your roof or property is one of the biggest pricing factors. The bigger the roof, the more materials and labor will be required to get the job done.

Most roofing contractors in Tampa will measure the total square footage of your roof surface to get the “roof squares.” Basically, one roofing square is 100 square feet of roofing materials.

#2. Roofing Materials Selected

Another factor to consider is the choice of roofing materials, which can be just as important as the roof’s size. For instance, a small residential roof may cost more than a larger roof depending on the materials used. The scope of the roofing project should also be taken into consideration, as some roofing materials require changes or reinforcements to the underlying roof structure.

#3. Labor Costs

Here in the Tampa Bay area, labor costs can be a little bit higher than in some other parts of the country. It’s important to analyze this item when comparing quotes from roofers. Labor costs usually account for hourly wages, experience or reputation of the roofing company, and insurance.

#4. Roof Slopes & Features

Finally, consider the complexity of the roofing job. Expect to pay more for complicated roof slopes, multiple stories or if you have other features like skylights or solar tubes since it will require more labor and additional materials.


Additional roof pricing factors may also include accessibility, updates to the attic, and warranties offered by your roofer.
