If you are a homeowner, no doubt you are wondering how much does a new roof cost. There are a lot of factors to consider when answering this question.

At Bison, no two roofing and/or solar jobs are the same. We completely customize every project we work on, so no two roofs are alike, even if the same materials are being used! While we know you are probably looking for a hard and fast answer, unfortunately we can’t give you one without first evaluating your home and unique needs. What we can do, however, is break down what goes into the cost, and why the price we give you comes out to what it is.

A Breakdown of the Cost of a New Roof.

Or, maybe you are just looking to update your home, and make it more secure before hurricane season. No matter what your reason is for getting a new roof, obviously it is going to cost money.

Bison’s roofing services in Palm Beach and Broward start with an on-site evaluation of your current roof. We send out some of the best roofing experts in South Florida to get up on your roof and look for issues. Oftentimes, your roof may look fine, but it is a whole different story with what’s going on under the hood. This is where things like new plywood, facia, and other things come into play. You may also have blatant issues with your roof like holes, missing shingles or tiles, cracks, and more. Trust us when we say we have seen it all! Once we complete your roof evaluation, there are a few things to take into consideration when pricing your roof.

  • Size – the square footage of your home and shape of your roof directly affects the amount of materials that need to be used, therefore impacting the roof cost.
  • Materials you’d like to use. We are proud to offer a number of different kinds of roofing materials. These include:
    • Shingle Roofing. A stylish and economical option, we carry all types of shingles, in an array of different colors. Some of the brands we work with include: GAF, CertainTeed and Owens Corning.
    • Tile Roofing. Tile is wonderful for the Floridian sun and heat. It is a common choice for homeowners in South Florida. We are pleased to offer a wide variety of tile roofing!
    • Metal Roofing. Metal roofs are becoming one of the top trends for roofing in South Florida! Available in a large variety of styles, they are long-lasting and resilient.
    • Flat Roofing. Bison is your go-to resource for installing custom flat-roofing systems.
  • Other Factors – Other factors that come into play include what kind of shape your home is in. After all, if there are major issues surrounding your roof, they need to be taken care of before a new roof is properly installed.

When it comes to paying for your roof, we are pleased to offer many different options, ranging from paying in full to no-money-down financing. And, if your credit score isn’t one of your bragging rights, no worries. We partner with Ygrene Energy Fund, who bases their approval primarily on the equity in your home.
