Composite Roofing Costs

Outdoor Cost Guides      Roofing      Composite Roofing Costs

Composite roofing is a popular option for those who are building a new home, and those who are replacing the roof on their current home. These are manmade materials that are ecofriendly, as they are often made from recycled items. You can find composite roofing that is painted or unpainted, so it should be easy to find an option that will work well with your neighborhood.

In addition to being environmentally friendly, you will find that these shingles, tiles, and shakes are an affordable option that also looks great. They are also able to last for up to 50 years when they have been correctly installed. They are lightweight compared to many other types of roofing material

Composite roofing: one-story home with a 2,000 square foot roof. It also includes the cost of removing the old roofing material.

Other considerations and costs

  • A roof that is more than one story high will incur additional costs.
  • The square footage of the roof and the pitch of the roof are directly related to the cost.
  • Any oddly shaped areas of the roof where it might be difficult to add the roofing, such as around a skylight, can add to the cost.
  • The cost of the labor will vary based on where you live.
  • If you also need to add gutters, this will add to the cost of the installation.
  • Talk with the roofers about adding sealant, which can help to prevent leaks from happening in the future. See if this is included in the cost, or if it will be an additional charge.

DIY considerations

  • Roof work has the potential to be dangerous, so you will want to hire a professional for the composite roofing rather than attempting to do it on your own. Hiring a pro also ensures that it has been installed properly.
