Got a roof that needs some restoration love, but trying to figure out how much it’s going to cost before you make a decision? Most roofing contractors offer free estimates. So you can easily compare prices between companies before committing to hiring a contractor.
We would advise getting at least 3 free repair estimates to get a feel for what the average cost of your roof repair should be. If you’re looking for a ballpark range, the cost to restore a roof in Arizona can range from $350 to $2,000+ depending on 3 Items.
Your roofing material strongly alters the restore cost. For example, concrete tile rates about 3 times as much as heavyweight asphalt shingles. And clay tiles are slightly more expensive than concrete tiles, which comes from the Tile Roofing Institute. So, if you have tile, you shouldn’t be surprised if the estimated cost seems a little higher than you’re expecting. While it may cost more to repair, tile roofing lasts longer and is more fire resistant than asphalt shingles.
To make things a little more complicated, the tile on your roof imay not be available in the marketplace. During the economic downturn, many tile manufacturers shut their doors – and with them their proprietary molds. The molds impact the direction tile connects with each other and actually lay on the roof. This may require doing a larger part of tile in order to have a logical start and stop point.
Answers to these questions (and others) will determine the needed supplies and amount of time required to do the repairs.
This is why we strongly recommend getting at least 3 free bids. You need to get a feel for :
When you get estimates, don’t just jump at the cheapest one, because how long they’ve been in business matters. Some say the best way to selected a roofing contractor is to find at a 10 -year-old yellow pages volume. If they’re listed in that volume and they’re still in business, they should be on your short list of contractors to use. Then, carefully check each bid to see if you’re getting apples to apples services. One contractor may skimp out on important work to give you a lower bid.
Once you get a few repair approximations, you might feel like replacing your old roof is perhaps more cost effective in the long run. Once you’ve chosen your roofing company, have that conversation with them and determine what the best and most cost effective option will be.
