Remove Your Old Roof in Mercer County, NJ

Factors that Determine Your Roof Replacement Estimate in NJ

The cost of total roof replacement can be significant. Depending on the nature of your roof replacement, the size of your home, and a variety of other factors, the total estimated cost of roof replacement in NJ will vary. Since a new roof is quite an investment, it’s critical to get a roof replacement estimate for your NJ home or business.

In general, roof replacement estimates in NJ are based on your roof’s square footage. The national average for residential roof size is about 2,000 square feet. In addition to the square footage factor, your chosen material, total damage done to your roof, other repairs, and labor costs will factor into your roof replacement estimate in NJ.

Other costs that may factor into the estimated cost of your roof replacement include:

  • The cost of nails
  • Underlayment replacement
  • Ice and water protection
  • Starter shingles
  • Ventilation
  • Roof flashing
  • Drip edge

Not only does a new roof protect you from leaks and further property damage, but it can also increase the value of your home by up to $20,000 in some cases. While it always makes sense to invest in your property, you may find that your homeowner’s insurance policy covers some or all of the cost of roof replacement if storm damage is documented and verified.

Roof replacement is a multifaceted process. It can take anywhere from a couple of days to a week to complete most roofing projects. This time estimate includes tear-off, installation, and clean-up. At Allabaugh Construction, we aim to make the roof replacement process as simple as possible with few inconveniences for you.

Some of the considerations you will need to make ahead of your roof replacement in Mercer County include:

  • New materials and technology are constantly coming out. Ask about energy-efficient and ultra-durable material options.
  • Construction will be very loud. If you work from home or spend a lot of time there, it’s a good idea to relocate, including your pets, somewhere else during construction work hours.
  • Quality is more important than finding a bargain.
  • Ask about roof removal. Some contractors will cut corners by laying new shingles over your damaged shingles, but it’s generally recommended to remove all existing shingles before replacing your roof.
  • Define the terms of waste removal. In general, dumpsters are brought to the work site to dispose of old roofing material and construction debris.

As part of the roof replacement process, it’s important to take time to consider the different roofing materials and how they apply to your roof replacement project in Mercer County.

The different types of roofing materials include:

  • Asphalt composition shingles: Asphalt composition shingles are among the most popular types of shingles. They’re affordable and readily available.
  • Wood shakes and shingles: Wood shakes are especially common in beach houses, but they offer great durability and curb appeal anywhere in the state.
  • Metal roofing: Metal roofs are a great option for anywhere that the threat of fire is a concern. Metals roofs tend to be more expensive to install because they require special training, but the long term durability may end up saving you money in maintenance and repair costs.
  • Slate roofing: Slate roofs are a high-end roofing option with countless benefits to curb appeal, but they can be slippery, heavy, expensive, and difficult to repair.
  • Composition slate: Made from 95% recycled materials, including rubber, composition slate is growing in popularity. These shingles effectively mimic the look of slate roofing without the high-end price tag. Composition slate roofing is lighter and more durable than traditional slate roofing.
  • Clay or ceramic tile: Clay and ceramic roofing tile are especially popular in Mediterranean-style homes. Ceramic tiles are beloved for their aesthetic value and fire resistance.
