A Calculator For Roofing Materials
An unfortunate reality is that all roofs fail at one point or another. As soon as they develop leaks, a full replacement is not far away. If you just try to patch it, you will wind up with an even bigger mess on your hands. If you are interested in finding out approximately how much it will cost to replace your roof, this calculator can help. It uses metrics such as the type and amount of materials used as well as labor costs to come up with an accurate estimate.
You can choose from a few different roofing materials including standard asphalt shingles, metal roofing, rubber roofing or countless other alternatives. Keep in mind that this is only an estimate since other factors will no doubt come into play that aren’t taken into consideration here. However, this roofing calculator can give you a good ballpark estimate of what you might expect to pay. That way you can determine whether or not the quotes you get are realistic.
The system this calculator uses is fairly standard throughout the roofing industry, both in the United States and Canada. It is centered around 100 square foot sections of roof that are known as squares. Unless your roof has a large number of angles or protrusions, the vast majority of contractors use squares to come up with a price.
As tempting as it may be to try to do some of the work yourself or to buy your own materials to save money, you shouldn’t. All you will do is create more problems for your contractor. This, in turn, can drive up the cost of roof replacement, eliminating any kind of savings that you were hoping for. There is very little markup on roofing materials. As a result, you may as well just let the contractor handle all of the details of the project.
