How the Cost of a New Roof is Calculated

A Sales Representative from Batterbee will be looking at the following 5 items:

  1. Pitch – How steep is the roof? As the pitch increases, safety becomes a factor and the difficulty to apply the roof.
  2. Size – The size is a direct factor. The larger the roof, the more materials and time needed to complete the work.
  3. Materials –What type of materials do you want? Do you want tile, metal, shingle, slate or a combination? What type of metal? The kind that looks like tile? Do you want skylights or sun tunnels?
  4. Labor – This is the biggest factor after materials. While everyone can get the materials for the same price, the labor is the biggest influence regarding price. The quality of the work increases the price or decreases it. The higher the quality work, the longer the warranty they can offer you from the manufacturer based on the rating of their labor, then the higher the price.
