Whether your home is small or large, a country cottage or modern beach house, its roof is always an important part of its structure and appearance. Your roof helps complete your home’s exterior, regulates interior temperatures, and protects your home from the elements. When your current roof is beginning to fail or show signs of age and wear, it is time to replace it. 1,400 sq.ft. roofs can be found on homes ranging from 800 to 1,400 sq.ft. These roofs can take on many shapes and styles and be clad in many materials, impacting your final costs.
The national average cost to replace a 1,400 sq.ft. roof is $6,650 to $14,000, with most people paying $9,800 for good-quality, algae-resistant architectural shingles installed on a cross-gable roof. This project’s low cost is $4,200 for basic 3-tab shingles installed on a gable roof. The high cost is $42,000 for a roof replacement using clay tiles on a cross-gable roof with deck reinforcement.
In any roof replacement, many things impact the project costs. Roofs can come in many shapes, sizes, and pitches. The more complex the roof, the higher the installation cost. And the steeper the pitch, the higher the costs. So, roofs like mansards and A-frames cost more than gable roofs. Gable roofs come in many styles, such as clipped or cross, increasing the project complexity. Your roof’s condition also plays a role. Expect higher costs if you need roof reinforcements. Below is the cost to replace a 1,400 sq.ft. roof based on the levels of quality, difficulty, and installation.

The materials you use on your roof also impact the final cost. Some materials are more costly than others, such as slate and tile. Some materials are also more difficult to install and have higher labor costs than others, such as some copper roofs. Asphalt and architectural shingles and composite roofs are some of the most common types, along with many types of metal roofing, such as aluminum. These materials make up the low and moderate range of most roof costs.
This depends on several factors, including the roof pitch, size, and material. It can take one to several days, depending on these factors.
