An Outline of Everything You Need to Know About Roof Replacement and Repair
Your roof is the most important part of your home. It protects your home, the structure and the family who live under it. However, roofing replacement is a substantial investment for several homeowners who want to replace a roof coming to the end of its lifespan or who want to improve the value and appeal of their home..
The total cost of a new roof installation can vary depending on the type of roof you want. On average the cost of a new roof installation can range from $6,000 to $10,000. The total cost varies based on location, market, and home value.
There are other factors that can affect the total replacement cost:
Roof Types: The size and pitch of the roof will determine costs. Roofs with a high pitch require more time, skill and resources to complete.

Types of Shingles
Shingles are the most widely used roofing material in the United States and across Indiana. More than 70% of homes and businesses utilize shingles on the roof.
However, choosing the right type of roofing can have a major impact on your home. Here are the pros and cons of different roofing types:
These are by far the most popular due to the vast variety of styles, lightweight design, and of course, cost. Asphalt shingles are relatively inexpensive and, with improving technology, are now recyclable.
One of the biggest cons is they do not withstand extreme temperature fluctuations and can wear quicker in these conditions.
Metal roofing is by far one of the most durable roofing materials. They are the least likely to sprout leaks, last more than forty years with proper maintenance, and are extremely desirable in a home. Aluminum is lightweight and easy to install, but another option is copper, which many find a little more aesthetically pleasing.
The only con is it is a little more expensive.
Tile is unique in its appearance, and is desirable for its durability. Tile roofs can last upwards of fifty years.
Some homes may not be able to support tile, so be sure to ask our experts!
