A new roof is one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make. While most contractors don’t like to quote an exact price before seeing your home first, it may be helpful to have a better idea of what to expect going in. According to current estimates, this is how much a new roof in Cincinnati, Ohio would cost per square foot:
|Roof Size (total square footage)||Roof Type||Low End Cost||High End Cost|
|1,000 – 2,000 sq ft||All Roof Types||$4,005||$9,381|
|1,500 – 2,200 sq ft||All Roof Types||$4,696||$9,748|
|2,300 – 2,700 sq ft||All Roof Types||$6,303||$10,227|

|3,000+ sq ft||All Roof Types||$8,703||$14,428|
As you can see, there’s no one-size-fits all when it comes to roofing prices. This is because there are several factors that go into determining the cost of your roof replacement. Here are a few factors that can go into calculating your final price:
Depending on the design of your house, it can have a steep slope, a low slope or a combination of both. If you have steep slopes on your roof, this can raise the price of your roof replacement. This is largely due to safety issues and the roofers having to use special equipment to work around the steep slopes.
The type of materials used on your roof can also have an affect on the overall price. Your HOA or local building codes may require a specific type of shingle that may be more expensive. There’s also the issue that in addition to just the roof, you may need to replace dormers, underlayment, vents or flashing that can add to the end cost.
Condition of your existing roof
In general, minor damage to underlying structures shouldn’t affect the end price too much, but major damage can have a significant impact. If there’s a lot of damage underneath your roof, such as large holes or water that has seeped into your walls or upper floors, this will require extra time, materials and labor to repair.
Roofing contractor rates
No two Cincinnati roofing companies are exactly alike, which means their rates won’t be either. Before selecting a company to work on your roof, it’s best practice to get quotes from multiple companies before making your final decision.
