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 indeed 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 Spokane is between $5,000 and $21,000 depending on a variety of factors. Trusted Spokane roofing company, Rocky Mountain Exteriors have created a price range to give an idea of what a new asphalt roof may cost.
- 10 square roof: $5,000 to $7,000
- 15 square roof: $7,500 to $10,500
- 20 square roof: $10,000 to $14,000
- 25 square roof: $12,500 to $17,500
- 30 square roof: $15,000 to $21,000
Let’s break down some factors that could bring us to this average price. It is wise to start with the most obvious question: How to measure the area of a roof?
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.
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
Asphalt shingle is the most common type of roofing material in the Spokane area, and for good reason! They are
- Available in a variety of colors and styles
- Easy installation
- Minimal upkeep
- Individual shingles can easily be replaced
- No worry of rust or corrosion
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
This includes 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. Many times it is taken to a previously approved dump location. This all takes time and manpower.

Size and Complexity of Your Roof
As briefly discussed earlier, the square footage of your roof impacts the cost of your new roof. 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 make appropriate precautions to remain safe.
