The time has come for you to begin looking into replacing your asphalt roofing system. Usually, the first question asked is “how much will it cost me?” That is a great place to start, and it is important to realize the many things that go into the cost of a new asphalt shingle roof.
The average cost of a new asphalt shingle roof in Milwaukee Metro is between $3,500 and $22,500. The cost is $350 to $750 per square. This cost depends on a variety of factors including the size of your home, the roofing materials used, and the installation costs of the Milwaukee Metro roofing contractor.
Roofs are measured in “squares”. A 100-square-foot area is considered 1 square in roofing terms. To simplify, the amount of material needed to cover 100 square feet of roof area is equal to 1 square of roofing material. So, as an example, if a roof surface area is 2000 square feet, the contractor would figure 20 squares. You can approximate how many squares your home is by dividing the square feet of your roof area by 100.
Here is a rough estimate of the breakdown:
- 10 square roof: $3,500 to $7,500
- 15 square roof: $5,250 to $11,250
- 20 square roof: $7,000 to $15,000
- 25 square roof: $8,750 to $18,750
- 30 square roof: $10,500 to $22,500
As mentioned above, many other factors make up the cost of a new asphalt roof. Let’s discuss what those are:
The Type of Roofing Material

- Available in a variety of colors and styles
- Easy installation
- Minimal upkeep
- Easy to replace damaged shingles

Roof System Materials
Your roofing system is comprised of many components. These include
- Ice and water shield
- Ventilation system
- Ridge capping
All of these items must be considered in the final price of asphalt shingles
Labor costs include tearing off the old roof and cleaning up the property once the job is completed. There is a great deal of debris that comes off of your roof and that must go somewhere. The unused material is usually taken to a previously approved dump location. This all takes time and manpower.
Size and Complexity of Your Roof
As briefly discussed earlier, your roof’s square footage impacts your new roof’s cost. This includes materials used, labor, and time needed to complete the job. However, one must consider the facets, hips, valleys, and the roof’s steepness when determining the price. Secondly, the higher the roof, the more dangerous the job. The installers must take appropriate precautions to remain safe.
