Sometimes you don’t need a new roof, but you do need some repairs. Shingles get torn off or damaged from rain and wind. Ice or even high heat and beating sunshine can damage roofs. Letting your roof go without maintenance is dangerous for your home, but it’s also dangerous for your wallet. Ignore repairs long enough, and you’ll need a full roof replacement much sooner that you would otherwise.
The average cost of shingle repair job is around $1,500, depending on the extent of the damage. Shingles are sold by the square, which is 100 square feet. Shingles generally cost between $100 and $300 per square. Of course you’ll want to use the same shingles you already have, so the more expensive your roof, the more expensive the repair will be.
With a shingle repair, you’re paying for the materials as well as the labor cost. The greater the area that needs repair, the higher the cost will be. In general, you’re looking at an average repair cost of $1,500, give or take a few hundred dollars. Different contractors can have very different prices, so it’s best to shop around to find the best price. Be sure to get estimates from a handful of companies before you decide on one.
