If your roof is missing shingles, leaking, sagging, or rotting – it may be time for a roof replacement. But how much does a new roof cost? Greater Purpose Construction LLC proudly serves homes and commercial buildings in Oregon and Washington, and we would love to talk with you about your roofing project. We offer free estimates on new roofs that are tailored to your home specifically.

The Benefits of a New Roof

Replacing an old roof not only improves a property’s curb appeal and value, but it helps protect homes and buildings from weather elements too. Home and property owners can also look forward to lower utility bills after a roof replacement since a new roof improves energy efficiency.

Estimating the Cost of a New Roof

The cost of a new roof depends on a few factors including how many square feet and the complexity of the roof’s design. Homes with high sloping roofs or with roofs that are harder to access may take more labor than, for example, a small single-level home. Our team can help you estimate the square footage of your roof and give you an idea of any additional labor that may be involved if your roof replacement is more complex.

The material you choose for your new roof will significantly affect the cost. Greater Purpose Construction LLC specializes in three different types of roofs: shingles, TPO, and metal.  

The Cost of a New Shingle Roof

The price for basic shingle roof replacement is about $3.00-$4.00 per square foot. For a 1,200 square foot roof, it will cost between $3,600-$4,800.

We are certified by the four largest roofing manufactures – IKO, GAF, Certainteed, and GenFlex. And we install a range of shingle qualities that can accommodate different budgets without sacrificing value. Plus, manufacturer warranties are available with all of our shingles.

The Cost of a New TPO Roof

TPO stands for Thermoplastic Polyolefin. This kind of roofing is common among commercial buildings. It is an ultra-durable, rubber-like, single-ply roofing material that is adhered to the roof. Part of what makes TPO so durable is its resistance to algae buildup, dirt, and debris. As it contains heat-reflective properties, many businesses choose TPO for its energy efficiency.

At Greater Purpose Construction LLC, the average price for a new TPO roof is about $5.50-$7.00 per square foot, not including insulation. For a 1,200 square foot roof, replacing with TPO would cost between $6,600 and $8,400.

The Cost of a New Metal Roof

On the scale, a metal roof is on the more expensive end. However, considering metal roofs can last 40-70 years, the initial investment can save significant time and hassle down the road. The price for basic metal roof replacement is $8.50-$10.00 per square foot. To replace a 1,200 square foot roof with metal roofing will cost between $10,200 and $12,000.
