How Roof Size Impacts Installation Cost

The size of your roof will play a big role in the final cost of your roof installation. The size will be impacted by the pitch and complexity of the roof and will have a big effect on how long the roof takes to complete, which will, in turn, impact labor costs. When Cairn Roofing Group in Denver inspects your roof you can expect precise measurements to ensure the most accurate estimate possible, but you can get a rough idea of what your roof might cost by checking out the following cost ranges. Roofs are measured in squares that are equal to 100 square feet, so you can find out the approximate square of your roof by dividing the square footage of your home’s footprint by 100.  

  • 10 square roof: $6,500 to $8,000
  • 15 square roof: $9,750 to $12,000
  • 20 square roof: $13,000 to $16,000
  • 25 square roof: $16,250 to $20,000
  • 30 square roof: $19,500 to $24,000
  • 35 square roof: $22,750 to $28,000

Impact Resistant Architectural Shingles

Impact resistance refers to how well your shingles will stand up to severe weather like hail. At Cairn Roofing Group, we offer both class 3 and class 4 architectural shingles. Architectural shingles are a step up from older, three-tab shingles. They’re thicker and have more dimension which adds curb appeal and durability without sacrificing affordability.  

Class 3 Shingles

Class 3 shingles are the lower tier of impact-resistant shingles. In lab settings, class 3 shingles were able to withstand cracking and breaking when a 1.75-inch steel ball was dropped in the same spot twice from a height of 20 feet.

Class 4 Shingles

In lab settings, class 4 shingles were able to withstand cracking and breaking when a 2-inch steel ball was dropped in the same spot twice from a height of 20 feet.
