Hailstorms, fierce winds, and water damage can be a huge headache when it comes to the integrity our a roofing system. We try our best to keep our roofs secure and solid, but nature has a way of challenging us. Has the time come to begin looking to replace your roof? The first question usually asked is “how much will a roof replacement cost?”
The average cost of a new asphalt shingle roof in the Nashville area is approximately $300 to $400/square, which figures into about $3,000 to $12,000 per home. This cost depends on a variety of factors including the size of the home, the roofing materials used, and the installation costs of the roofing contractor.
What exactly is a square and how are they calculated?
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.
Using the information we have learned about roofing squares, and the average cost of a new roof in Nashville, here is a rough estimate of the breakdown.
- 10 square roof: $3,000 to $4,000
- 15 square roof: $4,500 to $6,000
- 20 square roof: $6,000 to $8,000
- 25 square roof: $7,500 to $10,000
- 30 square roof: $9,000 to $12,000

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

Labor costs not only include the actual installation of the roofing material but also 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. We have an effective system for cleaning of the excess debris and strive to care for your home and landscape as if it were our own.
Size and Complexity of Your Roof
As briefly discussed earlier, your roof’s square footage impacts your new roof’s cost. As do other costs such as 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.
