A roofing contractor (also called a “roofer”) works on repairing, maintaining, and replacing residential and commercial roofs. Roofers that are contractors likely hold state-required licenses or certifications from verifiable entities. Being that roofers are a type of construction worker, they have expertise in an assortment of tools, which they use to install metal, tile, wood shake, asphalt shingles, or slate roofing.
The typical method of charging for roof removal and installation is by “squares,” according to Angie’s List. With this method, a square is commonly a ten (10) by ten (10) foot patch, with the average residential home requiring anywhere between twenty-two (22) to thirty-four (34) squares.
Depending on the type of roofing to be installed, the complexity of removing the old roof, and the angle at which the roof was built, the price per “square” varies significantly. According to HomesAdvisor.com, the average roofing costs per material are as follows:
- Metal roof w/shingle look: $275 to $375 per square
- Metal sheets: $100 to $200 per square
