The Average Cost to Tear Off and Replace a Roof in Baltimore

Things To Consider When Replacing Your Roof  

When embarking on a roof replacement journey, several factors come into play:  


The size of your roof is a significant determinant of the overall cost. Larger roofs, with more  square footage, entail higher replacement costs, including increased labor expenses.  


Material selection offers leeway in managing costs. From shingle roofs to flat roofs, the range of  materials varies in price and durability. Balancing cost with longevity is crucial in making an  informed decision.  


Labor costs are an inevitable part of any remodeling project. Working with an efficient roofing  contractor helps maximize your labor budget and ensures timely completion of the project.  

Unforeseen Damages  

Discovering additional damage beneath the surface layer during the removal of the old roof can  lead to unforeseen expenses. Damaged plywood, water damage to the attic, and other issues  may arise, necessitating additional work and impacting the overall cost.  

Extra Features  

Special roof features like skylights or chimneys can add complexity to the replacement process,  requiring extra work and materials for proper sealing or, in some cases, replacement.  

The Average Cost for A Roof Replacement in Maryland  

In Maryland, homes vary in size, material, and shape, leading to a diverse range of replacement  costs. Most homes in Maryland have roofs ranging from 2,000 to 4,000 square feet, with an  average cost ranging from $2.50 to $20 per square foot, depending on the material and complexity. Asphalt and architectural shingles are common materials, with gable roofs being the  most prevalent style. The choice of material, size, and roof shape collectively influences the  overall cost of a roof replacement.  

Remove The Roof or Roof Over It?  

A critical decision in the roof replacement process is whether to tear off the existing material or  roof over it. Roof overs can save on tear-off costs but may not be suitable for all materials.  While legal in Maryland, factors like the condition of the roof deck and the material type  influence this decision. Roof Right advises a tear-off to the roof deck in most cases, ensuring  the longevity of the new roof and minimizing future costs.
