How Much Does a Roof Cost?

Determining the Cost of Your New Roof

Roofing contractors use roofing squares to determine the cost of your new roof. One roofing square measures out to 10' x 10' or 100 square feet. The average house is roughly 20 squares or 2,000 square feet.

Another determining factor is the cost of the materials. Here at Stellar Roofing, we use premium shingles such as 50-year architectural shingles. According to RoofingCalc.com, the average cost per square for premium shingles ranges between $450 to $750, or $9,000 to $15,000, for an average-sized roof of 20 squares.

The Highest Quality Roofing Materials

At Stellar Roofing, we never cut corners and make sure the job is done right every time to prevent the possibility of major damages down the road. Many other roofers use staples to tack down the roofing underlayment. This is OK with felt paper, but felt paper wrinkles over time, allowing moisture to penetrate the decking, causing your plywood to rot prematurely.
Staples are inexpensive and save time. However, using staples can void your warranty, as using cap nails is usually recommended. Most shingle manufacturers call for the use of cap nails. Technology has advanced and so have we, which is why we use synthetic underlayments and cap nails for fasteners. This creates a more watertight seal that prevents moisture and rainwater to permeate, which can cause major damage to your roof and home's interior.
Nail pops can be a major problem with roofing systems. When a nail pop occurs, this creates an opportunity for wind-driven rain to enter into the home, causing significant damage to the drywall, ceilings, walls and more. We prevent this by using hot-dipped galvanized steel ring shanked roofing nails. They have a much better grip and never rust.
