How Much Does an Asphalt Shingle Roof Cost?
There is no simple answer about the cost of your new or replacement asphalt shingle roof. The size of your home, the complexity of your roof, your choice of materials, and the preparations needed to get ready to install your new roof all play roles in determining the total cost. When a roofing expert from our Minnesota roofing company comes to your home to prepare an price estimate, you’ll see a range of available materials, your home will be measured, and all factors will be taken into consideration. Then, we’ll provide you with an accurate price quote that includes everything that goes into the job. Our prices are always competitive, and our experience and care in installing your roof make all the difference.
Organic or Fiberglass-Based Asphalt Shingles?
Traditionally, asphalt composition shingles were made with a base of organic fibers, in a felted, paper-like composition. This base, saturated with asphalt, creates a waterproof foundation for the shingles. Then, an adhesive asphalt material is applied during manufacturing, and coated with mineral or ceramic granules in a wide range of colors. Today, most asphalt shingles are made with fiberglass matting as a base, and traditional organic asphalt shingles are less common. Both types are still available, but fiberglass asphalt shingles are most commonly used today, except in specific situations and when shingles must be applied during cold weather. Fiberglass shingles are lighter in weight, but more durable overall. Organic fiberglass shingles are more flexible, and are sometimes specified, especially when installed in cold weather. You can rely on our trusted roofing company to recommend the best type of shingles for your roof.
Good, Better, or Best
Roof shingle manufacturers and roofers generally grade shingles as good, better, or best. The differences between the grades have to do with weight, type of manufacturing, and the length of the manufacturer’s limited warranty, which can range from 25 years to lifetime warranties. Additional warranty periods apply to algae resistance, and also vary by grade. Price, of course, is another difference between grades of shingles. Within those grades, most manufacturers offer multiple roof shingle varieties, each with different characteristics. At our roofing installation and replacement company, we use only high-quality shingles from recognized, leading manufacturers of roofing products, including CertainTeed products, GAF and others, and stand behind all of the products we supply. It’s important to know that the cost of materials is just one of the factors in the cost of your new roof. Labor, additional materials, and other factors play a large role in the total price of your roof. By choosing a higher grade of shingle, you can increase the quality of your roof, without changing the other costs. That’s why most discerning homeowners choose better or best grades of asphalt composition shingles for their homes. The higher the grade you choose, the longer your new roof will last.
