Are Roof Shingles Prices Most Important?

When it comes to trying to determine how much a new roof costs there are various factors at play. Roof shingles prices are one of them. But there is no definitive way to estimate this cost, or any single factor that has an overwhelming impact on the roof cost.

Many things must be considered. After all the elements are weighted, a quote or estimate can be derived. Some of these factors include:

* how big the building is, and what the area of the roof is
* what roofing materials will be used in the construction
* where the building is located (local costs vary widely)
* is the building new, or is this a re-roofing project?
* taxes and regulatory expenses, if any
* type of roof and building

Once you have listed out this information, the next step is to figure out what impact each of them has on the overall cost of your roof. When you do this, you’ll notice that roof shingles prices are certainly an important component – but by no means the only, or even major thing that influences roofing costs.

After drawing up a rough estimate, it is time to invite bids from roofing contractors for the project. This will help you get a good price on the job, even if roof shingles prices are relatively fixed and there is a limit to the extent of discounts possible.
