What is the Cost of Replacing a Roof in Utah?

2020 blog


​When it's time to replace your roof, we know that one of the top questions on your mind is "What is the cost of replacing ​a roof?"  That is a great question and it can depend on a few things, but here is our answer for you.

A roof is more than just the cost of shingles

People tend to think ​that the price of a roof replacement is just the cost of the shingles. ​When considering roof repair costs, however, you ​need to consider the cost of ​everything that makes up ​a complete roofing system. Typical Roofing Systems consist of the following ​materials:

  • Shingles
  • Underlayment: Felt, Synthetic, Ice & Water Shield
  • Hip / Ridge cap
  • Flashing
  • Drip edge metal
  • Ventilation (ridge vent)
  • Pipe boots
  • Lead & step flashing
  • Nails, caulking, and other small things

​Most roofing companies charge by "squares." This is a single 10-by-10-foot patch of roof. The average residential roof ​generally ​falls between 22 ​to 26 squares ​to replace. Prices are generally higher for roofs that are particularly steep.

Prices for asphalt shingles, the most common type of shingles used here in Utah, will cost between $120 and $140 per square. ​Doing some simple math, this means the average roof replacement cost ​can range from $5,000 – $12,000 in total.  ​ But in all reality, that is roughly $166 to $400 per year over the life of your roof to ensure everything in ​your home is protected from the outside elements.
