Replacing an asphalt shingle roof can be a daunting task. Usually, the first thing the homeowner considers is the cost of replacing that roof. This is a wise place to start!
The cost of a new asphalt shingle roof in El Paso is between $7,000 and $15,000. Many factors go into this cost.
Size of the Area
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.

Type of Roofing Material
There are several types of roofing materials to choose from. Perhaps you would like to stick with the traditional asphalt roofing, or consider an upgrade to metal or tile. The options, colors and styles of asphalt shingles are so vast, it would be wise to ponder the benefits of each before signing on the dotted line.
This type of roofing material is the most common, and for good reason!
- Easy installation
- Minimal upkeep
- Individual shingles can be replaced
- No worry of rust or corrosion
Roof System Materials
There are additional areas of a roofing system that must be inspected, and replaced if need be, when a roof replacement is done. These could add to the initial cost, and should be considered. Here are some of the common components:
- Water shield
- Ventilation system
- Ridge capping
This includes 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. Many times it is taken to a previously approved dump location. This all takes time and manpower. The installers at Roof Solutions in El Paso are astonishingly fast and efficient when it comes to the complete roofing project, from start to finish.
Size and Complexity of Your Roof
As briefly discussed earlier, the square footage of your roof impacts the cost of your new roof. 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 make appropriate precautions to remain safe.
