How Much Does a Roof Cost?

February 12, 2020

Roofing contractors use roofing squares to determine the cost of a new roof. One roofing square measures out to a 10-by-10-foot or 100 square feet area.

The average home is roughly 20 squares or 2,000 square feet.

The most important upgrade or repair you can make for your home is the roof.

Another determining factor is the cost of the materials.

At Stellar Roofing, we use premium shingles such as 50-year architectural shingles.

According to RoofingCalc, the average cost per square for premium shingles ranges between $450 to $750, or $9,000 to $15,000 for the average sized roof of 20 squares.

For example.

Average roof = 20 squares (1 square = 100 sq ft or 10' x 10')

20 squares x $450 = $9000
20 sqaures x $750 = $15000

In our years of experience, we have noticed several major roofing mistakes.

At Stellar Roofing, we do not cut corners. We make sure the job is done right in order to prevent major damages.

A lot of roofers use staples to tack down the roofing underlayment. This is ok with felt paper, however, 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 what is recommended.

Most shingle manufacturers call for the use of cap nails. Technology has advanced and so have we. Stellar Roofing uses synthetic underlayments and cap nails for fasteners. This creates a more water tight seal that prevents moisture to permeate causing major damage to your roof and home interior. This is also a preventative measure in case a rain storm rolls in. This is extremely important with residential roofs in Rochester, New York.

One major issue we come across with roofing in Rochester is nailpops.

When a nail pop occurs, this creates an oppurtunity for wind driven rain to enter into the home causing significant damage to the drywall, ceilings, walls, etc.

We prevent this by using hot dipped galvanized steel ring shanked roofing nails. They have a much better grip and they never rust.
