Damage to your roof can range from a single shingle missing to a complete roof collapse. That’s a lot of variation to consider when determining a roof repair cost. However, there are some hard set rules that are pretty reliable in determining a cost for a roof repair. Factors such as the extent of the damage, the damage type, and your location can all affect the final cost. In this post, we will dive into the various ways that you can determine your own roof repair cost. 

What Determines Roof Repair Cost?

No roof is the same and no roof damage is the same. That being the case, the roof repair cost will be largely situational. Some factors to consider when determining how much you believe your repair might cost are the following: 

Damage Type 

Perhaps the most important factor in determining your roof repair cost is the damage type. This includes both the size of the affected area and the reason for the damage. Obviously, if a large area of your roof needs to be repaired, this will cost more than a repair to a smaller area. 

Likewise, the manner in which your roof was damaged also plays a major role in determining the cost. A small area with roof damage that includes decking (i.e. a hole in your roof) may cost more than a repair that requires replacing shingles over a larger surface area. 


Perhaps the second most important factor in determining the cost of your roof repair is the materials that you intend to use. If your roof is composed of asphalt shingles, then those will be cheaper to replace than ceramic or metal shingles/roofing. 

When determining how much your materials will cost you in a repair, you can look at the square footage of your damage and multiply it by the cost per square foot of your intended material. 

Asphalt and composite shingles- $4-8 per sq. ft.

Ceramic and clay tiles- $12-24 per sq. ft. 

Metal shingles- $18-40 per sq. ft. 

With a rough estimate as to the cost of the materials, you can have some sort of guideline to help you with your financial planning throughout the process. 

Roof Features 

Your roof features include structures such as chimneys, gutters, dormers, vents, and other protrusions that can be seen as obstructions on the flat surface of your roof. Working around these intricate structures will increase your cost as it may require longer hours for laborers. Because around 60% of the cost of a roof repair comes from the labor, this can add up pretty quickly. 

Average Roof Repair Cost

With all of these factors in mind, the national average for a roof repair is around $1,000. According to ThisOldHouse, the small repairs average is around $500, the midsize repair average is around $1500, and the large repair average is upwards of $2000.
