Roofs can be expensive. After all, they are the most important part of your home’s exterior. Your roof in the front line defense against the elements. A failing roof can result in tens of thousands of dollars worth of damage to your homes insulation, drywall, framing, trim, cabinets, appliances, and other structural and interior components. While there are many different types of roofing materials, the most common material in South Dakota, North Dakota, Wyoming, and Montana is asphalt shingles.
Architectural Asphalt Shingles
Architectural asphalt shingles are the most common and most affordable type of roofing. Shingles used to come in “30 year” and “50 year” varieties, now they are mostly all considered “Lifetime” warranty. There are many factors that can come into play when estimating an architectural asphalt shingle roof such as, pitch (steepness), height, overhang depth, etc. You should be able to get a new architectural asphalt shingle roof installed for around $500-$650 per square. One square equals 100 square feet. The average roof size is about 25-35 squares, but it is not uncommon for some larger residential homes to be 50-70 squares. For an average residential house, expect to pay around $15,000.00, for a larger residential home, expect to pay around $32,000.00 for an architectural asphalt shingle roof.
Metal roofing comes in 3 main gauges or “thicknesses”. 29 gauge is the thinnest, 26 gauge is the middle, and 24 gauge is the the thickest. 29 gauge is the most common thickness of metal roofing. It is rare to have a 24 gauge metal roof on a residential home, most 24 gauge metal roofs are on commercial buildings. These panels are typically coated with a colored, rust proof coating. We typically install 26 gauge metal roofing. This is because it holds up to hail better and the cost difference between 29 gauge and 26 gauge is minimal. As with all types of roofing there are many factors that can come into play when estimating a metal roof such as, pitch (steepness), height, overhang depth, etc. Typically a metal roof on an average residential home should cost around $27,000.00, a larger home should cost around $54,000.00.
Composite/ Synthetic Roofing
Composite/ synthetic roofing products such as F- Wave and Euroshield are products made from rubber or plastics. They come in a variety of shapes and styles to simulate cedar shakes, natural slate, or even asphalt shingles. These are premium roofing options that combine resilience to hail and weather with style. There are many product options in this category but once factoring in price and performance, we recommend F-Wave and Euroshield. These premium roofing options cost about $29,000.00 to $56,000.00.
Stone Coated Steel
Stone coated steel roofing is made from 24 gauge and 26 gauge steel sheets that are “stamped and shaped” to look like cedar shakes, concrete tiles, or natural slate. The steel panels are coated with a rust proofer just metal traditional metal roofing panels. They are then coated with an adhesive and small stone granules like asphalt shingles. this gives them texture and a stylish appearance. This type of roofing requires a highly skilled crew and a specialized installation. Stone coated steel roofing costs approximately $60,000.00 for an average residential home and $120,000.00 for a larger home.
