Asphalt shingle roofs are the most popular type of roof material in Ontario. Their life span ranges from 15 – 30 years based on various factors, but eventually, asphalt roofs will need to be replaced. So how much does it cost to replace a shingle roof in Ontario?
When you contact a roofing company for a roof replacement estimate, below are the various factors that impacts cost for replacing asphalt shingles in Ontario.
Roof Size

The overall size of the roof contributes to the price of replacing a roof for many reasons. The larger the roof, the more material it requires. It will also take longer to reconstruct the roof, thus adding to the labour cost.

The roof pitch plays an important factor since the steeper the roof, the more difficult it is to work on. Additional safety equipment is required as the inclination increases to ensure all contractors are well protected. As well, materials cannot be stacked on higher pitched roofs thus adding a degree of complication to the project.
Accessibility to the Roof

Roofs that are not easily accessible and require special equipment to transport roofers and materials onto the roof will increase labour hours as well as equipment cost.
Type of Shingle

The most popular shingles are the ones made with asphalt. They are versatile, affordable and easy to install compared to other materials. Asphalt shingles come in 2 styles: 3-tab & architectural. The 3-tab shingles, which is the most widely used and least expensive, is very flat and have cut-outs along the bottom edge, making it look 3 separate pieces. On the other hand, the architectural style gives a 3-dimensional look and is heavier and more durable.
