An Energy-Efficient Roofing Choice
While tile and slate tend to be more expensive when compared to traditional asphalt roofing, it makes up the cost by being a more energy-efficient roofing material. Tile and slate are more energy efficient because:
- The shape and design of slate and tile roofing allow air circulation under the roof, which aids in ventilation, further increasing the energy efficiency of your roof.
- Increased ventilation helps to increase the lifespan of your roof, saving money on roofing replacement.
- Tile and slate have a unique composition that provides adequate and efficient insulation.
Considerations for Slate and Tile Roofing
Before you choose tile or slate roofing as your material, you will need to take certain special aspects into account. Slate or tile roofs are heavier than traditional asphalt shingles. Therefore, additional support may have to be built to be able to endure the extra weight. The additional costs of building support are something to integrate into your price expectation. Some roofing manufacturers have solved this weight issue by providing a slate-like material that gives the same aesthetically pleasing characteristics of slate, but making the materials much lighter. The new slate-like material is still as durable as slate, but can be installed without the extra support. If your roof needs additional support to handle a slate roof and you don’t have the budget, consider other slate-like materials. Talk to one of our experienced roofers for more information.
Tile Roof Repair Cost
The cost to repair a tile roof can vary depending on a few different factors, including the overall size of the roof, how many roofing specialists the job requires, and the actual length of the repair job. We consider all of these items when we offer our comprehensive quote to the client.
On average, a small roof repair will cost between $150 and $400, while labor will be around $45 to $75 per hour. This is compared to the cost of a brand new roof, which goes for $700 to $800 per square foot for an installation. Some homeowners report paying just $316 for an entire repair job, while some report paying over $1,000. The total amount paid depends on the size of the roof. Unfortunately, some roofing companies overcharge their clients. We have heard of some homeowners paying up to $2,200 for their roof repairs. This is simply too bad. At Paradigm Roofs, we offer affordable prices for our clients so they don’t break the bank to live comfortably.
