How do I get the best price on a new roof?
8 Tips For Getting The Best Roof Value in Springfield MO
- Ask a local roofing contractor for a free evaluation.
- See if the roof really can be repaired or must be replaced.
- Find out if there is storm damage for insurance, or a failed roof issue covered by warranty.
- If the estimate does not seem thorough, get another.
- The best roofers in Springfield MO offer a warranty.
- Cheap roofers might not have liability insurance, which would mean you can be held liable for accidents.
- The estimate must include all needed materials for the selected roof type.
- Ask if your roofer gives a like-for-like estimate price match.
What are the types of roofing?
Here are the most common types of roofing in Springfield MO:
- Asphalt shingles
- Standing seam metal roofing
- R Panel metal roofing (agricultural panel)
- Metal shingles
- Stone coated steel
- Concrete or clay tiles
- Rubber or synthetic tiles
- Single ply or built up roofing (for flat and low slope roofs)
How much does it cost to tear off and replace a roof?
For smaller, simple, non-steep roofs, you can expect to pay anywhere from about $6,000 to $9,000 for a simple asphalt shingle roof replacement. For smaller, steep or cut-up roofs, it can range from $10,000 to $16,000 or more, depending on the size, etc. Large roofs, or premium shingles, can cost upwards of $25,000-$45,000. If a roofer quotes much less than that, you should question the quality.
How do I estimate roofing costs?
Things that go into an estimate for roofing costs:
Materials (underlayment, flashing, edge, ridge, roofing materials including waste, ventilation, consumables)
Safety considerations (ladder, rigging, harnesses, lifts, etc - roofing is one of the most dangerous occupations there is)
Labor (skilled labor is generally half of the estimate or more)
Permits, insurance, contractor's license, delivery, dump fees, supervision, warranty
How can I get my insurance to pay for my roof?
Steps to Get Your Property Insurance to Pay for a New Roof
- Verify damage. A good roofing contractor will give a free inspection and recommend action. If there is damage:
- Contact your agent to file a claim.
- Have your roofer meet the insurance adjuster onsite.
- If insurance denies or underpays legitimate repair for covered damage, ask for a reinspection.
- If there is still a discrepancy, appraisal and/or a public adjuster are additional options available to the insured.
What is the best time of year to get a new roof?
A roof can be installed any time of year in Springfield MO, but snow and extreme cold weather complicates matters (it's not impossible, there are ways to warm the roof). Spring and early summer are the best, providing that a major hailstorm hasn't just hit the area (driving up roofing demand). Labor and materials tend to go up later in the summer and fall, due to storm damage and hurricane season causing more demand.
Can I put a metal roof over shingles?
Sometimes. If local building codes allow it, and if your old roof isn't trapping moisture. Some building codes require a full tear-off whenever a new roof is installed.
Is a metal roof worth the cost?
A metal roof costs two to three times the price of a shingle roof, but will last 50 years or more. A shingle roof typically only lasts 12-15 years. They also can save up to 50% of energy costs. A standing seam metal roof in particular may increase the value and curb appeal of your home.
Do metal roofs make a house hotter?
No, metal roofs tend to reflect the sun's heat and can be as much as 100 degrees cooler on the surface, compared to an asphalt shingle roof. This can lead to energy savings of as much as 50% according to the MRCA.
How much does a metal roof cost?
A metal roof costs 2 to 3 times as much as a shingle roof. Specific roofs vary due to shape and access, but installation is typically around $900 - $1100 per square, plus the cost of tear-off and disposal of the old roof. Ask your contractor for a no-obligation, custom, detailed estimate for your specific house or building.
