How the Cost of a New Roof is Calculated in Florida
An Estimating and Insurance Specialist from Collis Roofing will look at these 4 things:
- Pitch – How steep is the roof? As the pitch increases, safety becomes a factor and the difficulty to apply the roof.
- Size – The size is a direct factor. The larger the roof, the more materials and time needed to complete the work.
- Materials –What type of materials do you want? Do you want tile, metal, shingle, slate or a combination? What type of metal? The kind that looks like tile? Do you want skylights or sun tunnels?
- Labor - This is the biggest factor after materials. While everyone can get the materials for the same price, the labor is the biggest influence regarding price. The quality of the work increases the price or decreases it. The higher the quality work, the longer the warranty they can offer you from the manufacturer based on the rating of their labor, then the higher the price. Smaller companies who have been in business for a short period of time, despite their “years of experience” are often lower rated by the manufacturers. The average Florida roofing company is in business for only 2 years, and they will most like be out of business when you need them. This also applied to Home Depot or Lowes, because they subcontract all their work to smaller, newer roofing companies.

Does Homeowner Insurance Pay for a New Roof?
Your insurance company will pay for the cost of your new roof replacement for hail, wind, weather damage or an Act of God.
Your homeowners insurance will not cover normal wear and tear most often due to age or woodwork which is also considered as normal wear and tear. They will replace the same roofing system, but if you want to upgrade your roofing system to a stronger or premium product these start as low as $400.

Cost of a Home Depot or Lowes Roof
Home Depot and Lowes subcontracts their roofs. This means they find small and new roofing companies to install the work, which there are plenty of. As the average new and small roofing company is only in business 2 years in Florida, if or when there is an issue with the workmanship of your roof or a repair is needed, you will likely have a new roofing company come to your door.
Because all work is subcontracted out, Home Depot and Lowes Roofs will almost always cost more so they can maintain a profit. The price difference may be significantly more and the value will be significantly less when you consider the quality of labor you will receive with these smaller contractors with less experience. Home Depot and Lowes cannot get rated for workmanship because they do not supervise the subcontractors work or install the roofs.
Everyone is pleasantly surprised when they find out they can get a better roof with more value from Collis Roofing, often for less than a roof from Home Depot or Lowes. With our highest rated workmanship and a dependable company you can trust why would you pay more for a roof any where else?!
