When it comes to installing a new roof, there’s probably one main thing on your mind: cost. Every roofing project is unique, and it’s important to understand a bit more about the ins and outs of yours before you dive headfirst into a remodel.

Luckily, you don’t have to do it alone.

At Panda Contractors, our goal is to make sure you can start your roofing project on the right foot and with all the right information. There are a handful of things that will impact the overall cost of your roof system. Let’s look at some of the most important aspects of any roof replacement project.

Roof Material

First and foremost, the material you choose for your roof system will have a big impact on the overall cost, so you should consider what type you need for your home and how much you want to pay. Popular options include the following:

  • Asphalt shingles are generally the most affordable option on the market, which makes them extremely popular. 
  • A step above those are wood shakes, tile roofs, and metal roof systems. 
  • Flat roofs are among the most expensive because they involve a more complex installation than sloped roofs. 

Size and Complexity

As you may have guessed, the square footage of your roof system will impact the overall cost of your replacement project. However, it’s not only size that matters; it’s also about how complex the project is overall. This refers to how many facets, valleys, penetrations, and hips your roof system has. Those sharper angles and irregularities will make the overall replacement more difficult, and therefore more expensive.

Labor Costs

When you work with a professional roofing company, you must pay for their time, too. Consider the rates set by the roofers you choose and how long your roofing project will take, too. Generally, labor costs are set based on the skill level and experience of the crew, so they vary between contractors. Be sure to do your research! 


To replace a roof, it’s important to be able to have easy access to the roof itself. This will make every step of the process much more streamlined—from tearing off the old roof to sending new materials back up. That being said, a roof that is hard to get to will cost more to replace than one that is easy to access.
