If your roof is older, leaking, or in poor condition, replacing it can offer several benefits. Your roof helps keep the elements out and protects your belongings. Older roofs can let water in, causing mildew, mold, wood rot, and other damage. Your roof also impacts your home’s curb appeal, and older roofs could detract from your home’s appearance. Replacing it can give your home a fresh look. There are many materials and styles for roofing. 2,000 sq.ft. roofs are one of the more common sizes in the U.S. and can be found in every style, from simple gables to elaborate mansards. This can lead to a range of associated costs with various roofing options.
The average new roof cost for 2,000 sq.ft. is $9,500 to $20,000, with most people paying around $14,000 for architectural shingles installed on a cross gable roof. This project’s low cost is $6,000 for 3-tab shingles installed on a gable roof. The high cost is $60,000 for clay tiles installed on a cross gable roof with roof deck reinforcement.
2,000 sq.ft. roof replacements can have a wide range of costs. This is partly due to the roof shape and materials. The more complex the roof, the higher its costs. So while gable and hipped roofs may have one cost per square foot, an A-frame or mansard have higher costs. A 2,000 sq.ft. shingle roof cost may be different than a 2,000 sq.ft. tile roof cost. The more complex the roof and the higher quality of the material, the higher the overall costs. Below are the average costs to install 2,000 sq.ft. of roofing of varying qualities.
