The time has come for you to begin looking into replacing your asphalt roofing system. Usually, the first question asked is “how much will it cost me?” That is a great place to start, and it is important to realize the many things that go into the cost of a new asphalt shingle roof. 

The average cost of a new asphalt shingle roof in The Villages is between $5,000 and $30,000. This cost depends on a variety of factors such as the size of the home, the roofing materials you choose, and the installation costs of the roofing contractor. On average, asphalt shingles will cost $5 to $10 per square foot. Here is a rough estimate of the breakdown:  

  • 10 square roof: $5,000 to $10,000
  • 15 square roof: $7,500 to $15,000
  • 20 square roof: $10,000 to $20,000
  • 25 square roof: $12,500 to $25,000
  • 30 square roof: $15,000 to $30,000

Let’s break down some of the factors could that bring us to this average price. It is wise to start with the most obvious question: How to measure the area of a roof?

Roofs are measured in “squares”. A 100-square-foot area is considered 1 square in roofing terms. To simplify,  the amount of material needed to cover 100 square feet of roof area is equal to 1 square of roofing material. So, as an example, if a roof surface area is 2000 square feet, the contractor would figure 20 squares. You can approximate how many squares your home is by dividing the square feet of your roof area by 100.

As mentioned above, many other factors make up the cost of a new asphalt roof. Let’s discuss what those are: 

The Type of Roofing Material

Asphalt shingle is the most common type of roofing material in the Central Florida area, and for good reason! They are 

  • Affordable

All of these items must be considered in the final price of asphalt shingles

Labor costs include tearing off the old roof and cleaning up the property once the job is completed. There is a great deal of debris that comes off of your roof and that must go somewhere. The unused material is usually taken to a previously approved dump location. This all takes time and manpower. The installers at McHale Roofing are astonishingly fast and efficient regarding the complete roofing project, from start to finish, making sure the project is done right.  

Size and Complexity of Your Roof

As briefly discussed earlier, your roof’s square footage impacts your new roof’s cost. This includes materials used, labor, and time needed to complete the job. However, one must consider the facets, hips, valleys, and the roof’s steepness when determining the price. Secondly, the higher the roof, the more dangerous the job. The installers must take appropriate precautions to remain safe.

5 Star Customer Reviews

We had them put a roof on our mobile home. Couldn’t be more satisfied. They added a couple vents (we had none). They added some extra shingle overhang above the screened in patios. Very professional people. Highly recommend.
