EASTON, Conn. -- For most families, summertime is the perfect opportunity to make sure everything around the house is properly maintained and taken care of, including the roof. If it's been a while since the last time someone repaired or replaced your roof's tiles, it may be time for an upgrade. Below, Kurt Stowell and the team at KRS Roofing break down what determines the cost to fix a roof.
The roof is the first line of defense against terrible weather and natural disasters, so without the right maintenance any home could be at risk. One of the smartest decisions a homeowner can make is to ensure that their roof is inspected annually for any damages or wear and tear. The average price of a new roof is approximately $6,000, although depending on the circumstances, the cost could be more or less. Some determining factors that influence the price of roof repair or replacement include:
- Materials used (copper, asphalt, metal, plastic, etc.)
- Steepness of the roof
- Amount of square footage to replace
- Location (material prices and roofer requirements vary with state)
