Roof Cost Calculator

Complete the steps in the calculator to determine the estimated cost of your roof replacement based on your roof type and your roof’s square footage. If you don't your roof's square footage, refer to the video or text below the calculator. 

Be aware, these numbers are for an asphalt roof only. If you want to know how much a standing seam metal roof costs, multiply the final number by 4. For a cedar shake roof, multiply the final number by 5. 

The number you get from the calculator will not be an exact cost for your roof replacement.

Calculating the square footage of your roof

Square footage of a house does not equal the square footage of a roof. To get your roof’s square footage, you must first measure your roof’s footprint.

To get the footprint, measure the dimensions of your roof by counting the steps you take to get the length of your home and then do the same with the width of your home. After your measurements, calculate the footprint using the following equation, Length x width = your home's footprint. 

Now that you know the footprint, you’re ready to calculate the square footage. To calculate your roof’s square footage, take the foot print (length x width = home's footprint) and multiply it by 1.3.

Be aware, the steepness and complexity of your roof will change the number you multiply the footprint by.

If you have a hip roof with a low slope, you'll multiply the footprint of the roof by 1.4 to get the square footage of your roof. If you have a steep and complex roof you'll multiply the footprint of the roof by 1.6 to get the square footage of your roof.
