Asphalt Shingle Roofing Installation Projects

If you are looking to repair your roof, an asphalt roof replacement is a great option, especially if you are working on a tight budget. You can choose from two different types of shingle — 3-tab shingles are typically the cheaper option, with a thin, flat design, whereas dimensional shingles offer more protection and a more stylish finish. The cost to install asphalt shingles is relatively low compared to other options such as metal or tiles, so it is worth getting a professional to do this for you.  An asphalt roof replacement will also add value to your property, so it is an excellent long-term investment.

Asphalt Roof Replacement Cost

The cost to replace an asphalt shingle roof ranges from $5,000 to $12,000*. The lower end of the scale relates to installing 3-tab shingles, the higher end to installing dimensional shingles. The size and shape of your roof and the style of the asphalt you choose will also affect the price. Some costs to consider:


  • New installation: $2-$4* per square foot. You can buy these in bundles to get a little discount.


  • Labor costs: $1.50 and $3* per square foot. The price can vary according to how many jobs the contractor has on at the time.


  • Roof removal: $3-$5* per square foot.  If you are looking to install asphalt shingles as a replacement for an existing damaged roof, you will need to pay extra for this. Ask for it to be included in your quote to avoid any hidden costs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of installing dimensional shingles versus installing 3-tab shingles?
Dimensional shingles are thicker and therefore offer more protection from the elements. They are expected to last up to twice the amount of time as 3-tab shingles and are more aesthetically pleasing.
What are the risks if I do not replace asphalt shingles?
If you don't repair your asphalt shingles, then this could lead to water damage and rot, resulting in higher repair costs.
When is the best time of year to carry out an asphalt roof installation?
It is best to get an asphalt roof installation done in the warmer months as in colder weather the asphalt shingles may not adhere properly, which could lead to cracks.
