What Drives The Cost Of Your New Roof?

What's It Cost To Replace Your Roof?  Well, that's a difficult question to answer without knowing the specifics about your home.  The size of your home, the pitch of the roof, the specific roofing materials, complexity, and extra add-ons, all contribute to the price of a new roof.  The overhead of the roofing company you eventually choose also factors in.  This will guide will hopefully explain the cost variables a little better.

Our Price Match Guarantee:  With Thunderstruck Restorations you can have the peace of mind knowing that you're never going to overpay for your roof!  We will match ANY roofing company quote from any other licensed, insured, and factory certified roofing company.  In order for a roof to be factory certified it must be installed to meet specific standards.  ALL of our roof replacements meet or exceed manufacturers specifications so you can qualify for the full warranty.  If the roofing shingles and installation between two companies are the same, why on earth would you want to pay more?

Tearing Off An Old Shingle Roof


Our first step is tearing off your old roofing which is a big part of the project.  This allows to inspect and replace any rotted wood decking as necessary and lets us offer the full manufacturer 50 year non-prorated warranty.

Inspecting Your Roof Sheathing

Roof Decking

After tearing off your old shingles the roof decking must be inspected.  In many cases, it's totally fine.  Sometimes, however there are sections of roof decking that will need to be replaced.  If your roof was leaking, your roof decking could be rotten.

Installing ice and water shield on a roof

Ice and Water Shield

Ice and water shield runs along the outer edges and valleys of your roof or anywhere the roof meets a wall.  This is an essential addition for your roof to protect against ice dams and wind driven rain.  Make sure your roofer is including this!

Installing proper ice and water shield on a roof

Synthetic Underlayment

Otherwise known as roofing felt.  This important layer provides extra protection against leaks and wind driven rain from getting up underneath your shingles.  There are different types and qualities of underlayment.

Installing roof vents is critical to your roofing performance

Roof Venting

Proper venting is critical to any new roof installation as it prevents condensation from forming within your attic.  If your roof doesn't have adequate ventilation we can install more ventilation for you during the roof replacement.

Installing Proper Roof Flashing


Flashing is thin metal that is formed and installed to direct water away from critical areas of your roof.  Typically this is installed in valleys, walls, around chimneys, and vents.  Poorly installed or missing flashing is the cause of many roof leaks.

Shingles ready to be installed on a new roof


Shingles are the final layer of your roof and the most expensive next to labor.  There are cheap options however we use what we know and trust which are most often Owens Corning Duration or Atlas Architectural shingles.

Roof Pitch

If your roof is "walkable" it makes replacement easier.  When your roof has a very steep pitch (steep slope) it can require additional equipment and safety measures to complete properly, thus increasing the price sometimes substantially.

New Gutters

New gutters are always an option when having a new roof installed and they can be installed to color match or contrast your new roof.  If your gutters are in bad shape then it's a good idea to have them replaced as part of your new roof installation.

Labor is a major cost of your roofing project


Labor is probably the biggest contributing factor to the cost of replacing your roof.  We typically run a four to six+ man crew with our roofing projects.  Excellent craftsmanship is one of our hallmarks and we only employ the best!

Dumpster used to dispose of old roofing shingles


Tearing off your old roof will create a lot of waste and trash.  We must have a dump trailer or large dumpster on-site to collect the old materials without making a mess.  Your old roofing materials must then be disposed of at the proper facility.

Make sure the roofer you hire is properly insured


If you're hiring a roofer to replace your roof then it's important they are properly insured.  We are properly licensed and insured in Minnesota so you know that your property and our employees are always going to be protected.

What About A Roofing Warranty?

Not all roofing warranties are created equal!  Depending on the shingles you choose and how they are installed there may be additional charges to have your roof fully protected with a non-pro rated warranty.  At Thunderstruck Restorations we are a factory certified roofing company.  We only recommend shingles with a rock-solid warranty and we install them to meet or exceed manufactures recommendations so your roof qualifies for the maximum available warranty!
