What to Goes in to the Pricing of Your New Roofing System

What to Goes in to the Pricing of Your New Roofing System

When having a new commercial roof installed, there are many things to take into consideration that make up the cost/price of your new roof. Here are a few things that go into the pricing of your new roofing system.

Choosing a Roofing System

Whether your building has a flat or sloped roof, there are several basic types of roofing materials to choose from. These materials vary in both effectiveness and durability. The material you choose can be the main difference between a roof that lasts 10 years and a roof that lasts 30 years. Some of the common roofing types to consider include:

·         Asphalt or fiberglass shingles
·         Built-up roofing (asphalt or coal tar)
·         Modified bitumen roofing system
·         Single-ply membrane roofing (TPO< PVC & EPDM)
·         Spray polyurethane foam roofing

Pricing the Project

There are many factors that affect the overall cost of a roof replacement. These factors include the size of the roof, the materials you choose, the amount and concentration of roof top penetrations, perimeter details, ease of access and set-up, equipment required and the presence of any other damage (wet insulation, bad deck) that needs to be addressed, building codes, permits and warranty fees. When choosing a contractor for the job, pricing should not be the only factor you consider. Just because a contractor offers their services at the lowest price does not mean they’ll provide high-quality work.

Length of Project

How long it takes to install your commercial roof varies greatly depending on the size of the roof and the complexity of the project. Roofs that have experienced water damage and need to be torn off will take longer than a roof that can be roofed over. The size and skill of the crew also dictate the duration of a job. Smaller roofs and residential roofs often take only a day or two while large commercial roofs can take more than a month(s) to install. 

A well-installed roof will help save you money on your monthly utility bills, prevent costly repairs, and make for a healthier working environment. Contact Matrix Roofing by calling 267-642-5027 or emailing to determine the best roofing system for your building.
