How much does a roof replacement cost in Brentwood, Tennessee?
Many factors go into the cost of your new roof for your Brentwood home, so it’s impossible to give an exact price without getting a roof assessment. However, we can at least give you the average cost of a new roof for a standard middle-class Brentwood, Tennessee home.
Homeowners in Brentwood with a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with a walkable roof pitch, a little roof complexity, and architectural asphalt shingles can expect the average cost for a new roof to be around $12,000 to $15,000.
How much does a roof cost in Brentwood, Tennessee, based on the roofing material you choose?

How much does an asphalt roof cost in Brentwood, Tennessee?
For a one-story house with a basic up-and-over roof with no penetrations and no valleys, you can expect your new asphalt roof to cost around $4.00 per square foot. This includes basic 3-tab asphalt shingles, underlayment, and other roof components.
For a two-story house with a little complexity and good accessibility, you can expect your new asphalt roof to cost around $5.86 per square foot. This includes a good quality architectural asphalt shingle, upgrading your underlayment, and using all of the manufacturer’s roofing components.
For a two-story house with a cut-up, complex roof, a steep pitch, and not easily accessible, you can expect your new asphalt roof to cost around $8.50 per square foot.

How much does a metal roof cost in Brentwood, Tennessee?
There are two types of metal roofs: a standing seam metal roof and a screw-down metal panel roof. While they’re both made of metal, they have very different price points.
A new screw-down (also known as an exposed fastener) panel metal roof costs around $4.50 per square foot to start.
On the other hand, you can expect a new 24 gauge steel standing seam metal roof to cost around $12.00 per square foot for a one-story house with a basic up and over roof with no penetrations and no valleys.
For a more complex roof on a one-story home, you can expect a new 24 gauge steel standing seam metal roof to cost around $15.00 per square foot.
If you’re seriously considering a metal roof for your Brentwood home, I recommend a standing seam metal roof to get the most out of your investment.
How much does a composite (synthetic) roof cost in Brentwood, Tennessee?
Composite (aka synthetic) shingles are made of a synthetic polymer or recycled materials and designed to look exactly like a slate or cedar shake roof. While it mimics another type of roofing material, the price will be very different depending on the type of composite roof you choose.
A new synthetic slate roof costs around $10.00 to $12.00 per square foot to start and has the potential to get up to $20.00 or more per square foot. A synthetic slate roof will always be cheaper than actual slate.
On the other hand, a new synthetic cedar shake roof costs around $14.00-$18.00 per square foot. Just like synthetic slate, a synthetic cedar shake roof will be cheaper than a real cedar shake roof.
How much does a cedar shake roof cost in Brentwood, Tennessee?
A cedar shake roof is a premium roof system made of natural wood (cedar) materials. It’s considered a premium roof system and will come at a pretty steep price point.
A new cedar shake roof will cost around $25.00 per square foot for a one-story house with a mildly complex roof. For a more complex roof, the cost of a new cedar shake roof will be around $30.00 per square foot.
While there are a lot of factors that go into the cost of a new cedar shake roof, a major factor is the grade of cedar shake shingle you choose for your roof replacement.
How much does a slate roof cost in Brentwood, Tennessee?
Just like a cedar shake roof, a slate roof is a premium roof system made primarily out of natural slate roofing materials. It’s one of the most beautiful and long-lasting roof systems on the market.
For labor and materials, you can expect a slate roof to start around $15.00 per square foot and has the potential to get up to around $30.00 or more per square foot.
Because of a slate roof’s cost, it’s one of the most expensive types of roofing materials on the market in Brentwood and around the country.
