The house should be warm and dry. To prevent overheating or cooling of the rooms, you should take care of the roof to be in perfect condition. Problems with the roof condition will affect not only the house exterior, but its functional characteristics as well.
To start replacing the coating in time, you should inspect the roof and truss system every year for probable problem reasons. Even if you have built or purchased the house recently, there may be small cracks in the roof invisible at first glance. If you ignore the problem, replacing a roof may be much more difficult and expensive in the future.
When the wood remains in perfect condition, small cracks appear on the roof, you need to purchase a new material and replace the coating. Such repair is affordable and doesn’t take much time.
If you have an attic or mansard, inspect the walls carefully. Moisture or rot may appear on them. The reason is the leaking roof. After removing the roof coating, you will see:
- accumulated excessive moisture.
Roof replacement starts with dismantling the old roof. This can be done in DIY way or with professional help. To dismantle the frame, crate, and rafters, you will need the following tool set:
- electric saw;
The work begins with removing the material around the walls and pipes. When working with a metal roof, you should remove the ridges of the wind and end plates. The elements are removed starting from the top sheets and moving downwards. After removing the roof, you should dismantle the gutters and edges. Next, the roof rafters are removed. You should start with removing metal elements, following with the free-lying parts.
Constructing a complicated roof design requires several manipulations. First, the waterproofing of the walls’ upper part is made. The walls, including partitions, are covered with roofing material or wall plates. Next, the sections are marked where the beams will be attached. The distance between them is calculated based on the insulation plates size.
The next step is rough flooring. This makes it possible for builders to move around the roof while working and collect the remaining parts without lifting the finished structure from the ground. At the same time, ridge beams fixed on the racks should be installed.
In the main part of the box, you should install the central racks to support the ridge beam. A structure shaped as two triangles is assembled from the rafters. Then, it is mounted to fix the racks and the beam. Nails, staples, and angle stocks are used to securely fix all the elements.
Specialists install the rafters – start with sloping ones and following by the rest. To make the structure more durable, it must be reinforced with tie-beams and sub-truss beams. At the end of constructing the frame, protruding parts of the rafters should be cut off. The final stage is installation of the binding board.

The average roof cost for most homes will range anywhere from $4,000 to $10,000. That exact cost will vary depending on many factors.
In order to determine the exact roof replacement cost for your new roof project, we consider the following cost factors:
- Your roof size This is a significant factor to consider when trying to estimate your new roof cost. It is helpful to know that your roof size is 1.5 times the size of the square footage of the interior of your house. If you aren’t sure about your roof size, our contractors will be happy to calculate it for you.
- The pitch of the roof The steeper the roof, the higher the roof replacement cost will be for the new roof. This extra expense is due to the difficulty involved with installing steeper areas and roof types.
- Accessibility to the roof Roof replacement contractors will need to have clear access to the roof for inspections and installing the new materials. Barriers like big tree branches along the roof will factor into the cost evaluation.
- Additional features Additional factors to consider for cost estimates include the presence of chimneys, ventilation pipes, and skylights. These complexities can add more labor costs, time and materials for your new roof.
- Roof Materials The materials that you choose play a large role in roof cost. They also play a role in the longevity of your roof. You can expect that a metal and slate roof will be more expensive than asphalt shingles or wood shake shingles.
Metal roofs range from $300 to $800; wood shakes are from $300 to $500; and asphalt shingles are from $150 to $200 per square foot. If you have a higher budget, you can consider a slate roof ranging from $600 to $1500 per square foot or more.
