If you live in the Dallas area, and your home’s roof is leaking, or dry-rotting, it’s a good possibility that you’ll need to find a Dallas roofing contractor at some point. But how much will the replacement cost? There are a lot of things to consider when getting a quote for this type of job—the type of roofing materials you choose (and there are hundreds!), the size of your house, etc.
The cost of a roof replacement in Dallas depends largely on the materials you choose, the size of your home, and whether you need a new roof structure or just new shingles. This information is presented by our team at The Dallas Roofers. Here’s what you can expect:
The average cost for a new roof replacement in Dallas is around $6,000 to $9,000 for a 2,000-square-foot home. If you need to replace your entire roof, this will cost anywhere from $9,000 to $13,000 for a 3,000-square-foot home.
If you need more extensive repairs that require removing some of your shingles and replacing them with plywood or roll roofing, this can add an additional $1,500 to $5,500 to your total bill. If you have damaged flashing around chimneys or skylights and these need to be replaced as well as some shingles replaced with roll roofs or plywood, you can expect another $1,500 to $3,000 in roof replacement costs.
Cost of Materials
The average price of materials for a roof replacement in Dallas is $15,000 to $20,000. The cost of asphalt shingles ranges from $1.50 to $2.00 per square foot. Galvalume steel roofing costs about twice as much as asphalt shingles. Composite shingles are more expensive than asphalt shingles but less expensive than steel roofing; they usually range from $4 to $8 per square foot. Rolled metal roofs are also available at an average cost of about $4 per square foot.
A typical home in Dallas has 1,500 square feet of roof area and requires about 100 pounds (45 kilograms) of nails or screws for installation. You’ll also need 20 gallons (75 liters) of tar-and-gravel mixture for sealing joints between panels and around vents, pipes and chimneys—at a cost of approximately 5 cents per gallon (2 cents per liter). The average contractor charges about $250 for labor on this part alone
