Products and Cost:
The average square footage of a residential home is between 2000-3000 square feet. To help estimate your home a good rule of thumb is that your roof will typically be between 500-800 square feet more than your square feet of the home. Because of the pitch and multiple facets on your home a roof will always have greater square footage than your home unless it is a flat roof. For example, a 1500 square foot home will generally be 2000-2200 square feet of roof area.
Depending on the product you use to reroof your home you can expect to pay between $250-1500 per square.
Roof Decking: the minimum thickness required for most roofing products is 3/8 and 1/2 inch for metal. We always recommended installing greater than 3/8 if it is in the budget to do so. With our Ontario climate and heavy snow loads, it is best to have a solid decking to fasten material and also help to withstand potential weight loads in winter months.
If your home is on barn boards with greater then 1-inch spacing, your home will require you to upgrade your decking to a solid nailable surface. This will include either an OSB or Plywood decking to be installed over your original roof.
Material Upgrades: We do not generally include any significant upgrades to your home on our first initial estimate sent out. We have a low-pressure sales program and will not sell you on anything you do not need. If you are interested in upgrading something on your home please feel free to let us know and we will do our best to give you the necessary information on these products to better help you understand and make those decisions.
Roofing Estimates: Our roofing estimates are always 100% free. If you inquire about a project we would love to continue to work with you on getting to a point of obtaining your business. If there is something you feel we are missing on your estimate or if another contractor is offering something that you would like us to include please let us know. We want you to be completely happy with what you are getting when you hire Country Top Roofing and are very flexible with suggestions and needs. We are always happy to work on price or change certain things to get to a point that makes sense for you.
