One neighbor recently had their roof replaced. Another had their roof replaced a year ago. The price difference between the two roofing jobs was quite noticeable. Why?

“There are many reasons re-roofing pricing can differ,” said Bernard Balais, president and RME of West Oahu Roofing. “The first reason is timing. Throughout the year roofing suppliers where we purchase materials endure price increases for materials, shipping, and overhead costs. These expenses are passed down ultimately to the consumer.


Another reason a roof can cost more or less than a neighbor is the roof size. From the ground it may seem like your roof is the same size as a neighbor’s roof but in actuality, after measuring there may be a difference in roof size.”


Other factors such as roofing materials types, the amount of existing roofing layers, and types of roofing accessories can also affect the costs.
