Cost of a Roof Replacement In Charlotte

All roofs will eventually reach the end of their lifespan and require a replacement and sometimes storms come in and cut the life of a roof short.  No matter the cause, if you’re in need of a roof replacement in Charlotte, you’ll want to know what it’s going to cost.

Average Roof Replacement Cost

The average cost to replace a roof in Charlotte is $250-$700 per square.  A square is equal to 100 square feet, so a roof replacement costs around $2.50 to $7.00 per square foot.

Roof Replacement Cost by Home Size

One of the biggest factors in the cost to replace your roof is the size of your home.  The following ranges will give you a general idea of where your roof falls to determine the potential cost of a roof replacement.

Roof Replacement Cost by Shingle Type

Asphalt shingle roofs, which are the most common roofing system in Charlotte and the surrounding areas, come in several different types.  The type of shingle you decide to install on your roof will play a role in the overall cost of your roof replacement.

3-Tab Shingles

3-Tab Shingles are the least expensive and most common category of asphalt shingle.  They lay flat and are classed by the cut-outs that make them appear to have three tabs.  They’re light-weight and energy efficient, usually lasting around 20 years.

  • The roof replacement cost for 3-tab shingles in Charlotte is between $250-$300 per square.

Architectural Shingles

Architectural shingles are an upgrade from 3-tab, but still a mid-grade option giving them a good balance between affordability, durability, and aesthetic.  These shingles have an additional layer which gives them better wind resistance and more depth and dimension.  An architectural shingle roof usually lasts around 30 years.

  • The roof replacement cost for architectural shingles in Charlotte is between $350-$500 per square.

Premium/Luxury Shingles

Premium shingles are designer shingles that are created to mimic the look of more expensive roofing options like cedar shake and slate.  While they’re the most expensive of the asphalt shingle options, they’re far more affordable than the materials they’re meant to imitate.

  • The roof replacement cost for premium shingles in Charlotte is between $500-$700 per square.

Roof Replacement Cost For Average Home in Charlotte

The average home size in Charlotte is around 2100 square feet.  This means that the cost to replace the roof on an average home in Charlotte is between $5250 and $14,700.

Other Types of Roof Replacement

The average costs for roof replacements that were discussed refer mostly to asphalt shingle roofs which are the most common type of residential roof in Charlotte.  There are several other types of roofs that are common to Charlotte that will cost more to replace for several reasons.

Increased Material Cost

Premium roofing materials come at a premium costs.  This means that the cost to replace roofing systems with materials like metal, cedar, and slate will be more expensive than the cost to replace an asphalt shingle roof.

Increased Labor Cost

Potentially even more than material costs, the increased cost of labor for premium materials can make a big difference in the cost of a roof replacement in Charlotte.  Asphalt shingle roofs are fast and easy to install in general.  Other roofing materials require more experience and specific knowledge to properly install them.  They also usually take longer to install.  As an extreme example the difference in the time it takes to install an average sized slate roof vs. the time it takes to install an average sized asphalt shingle roof:

  • The average time to install a slate roof is around 10-12 hours per square which means a full roof can take hundreds of hours.  Additionally, slate roof replacements can be complicated because the existing structure may need to be retrofitted to handle the weight of the stone.
  • The average time to install an asphalt shingle roof is around 1-2 square per hour.  An experience roofing crew can install up to 50 square in a single day.

    Fantastic, honest company. Highly recommend them. Jordan is straightforward and knowledgeable, the crew is friendly, and they are extremely efficient. They were glad to answer any questions I had and make sure I understood what they were … More doing. Office staff is very friendly as well! They have an eye for the details that matter in maintaining the integrity of your roof. No regrets going with Roof Medic, and we'll use them for future needs.
    UPDATE: used Roof Medic again for a roof replacement, and we continue to love the company. They do excellent work, have a friendly crew, and are highly knowledgeable. They walked us through the insurance claims process, helping us understand what was going on and why every step of the way. Communication is stellar, and we never felt like we were at a loss as to where we were in the process or why. High quality, efficient work. Will definitely use again if the need arises and recommend this company.

    Roof Medic was recommended to us by our insurance agent when we had significant damage following a wind storm. Nick Stewart, who we worked with from day one was extremely professional, responsive & easy to work with. We ended up replacing … More all of our gutters and downspouts along with a full roof replacement, which included a new metal roof above our front porch. Chris, who is Roof Medics production manager ensured our job was done quickly and flawlessly. We couldn’t be happier with how it turned out & would not hesitate to recommend Roof Medic to anyone! Nick and Chris were fantastic to work with, not a single complaint!

    Roof Medic exceeded all my expectations, as a homeowner who desires over communication, exceptional work and true value on our hard earned dollars.
    From the initial inspection, to dealing with insurances, selection of products, scheduling
    … More of installation and finally the actual install, Roof Medic was fabulous. I can't over state how nice, professional and a pleasure Nick, Jake and Megan were to work with (great experience).
    If you're looking for a firm that walks you through all the details and potential costs (no hidden Change Orders) and are responsive to all your inquires, look no further as this is your team.

    I cannot thank Roof Medic enough. Julian came out to inspect our roof that had a lot of moss growing on it due to very large oak trees shading the property. We were sure we would need to replace it soon but we didn’t realize we had storm … More damage as well. He thoroughly walked us through the insurance claim process and even came out the day the adjuster was here. Our roof ended up being covered by insurance! What a blessing that was for us old retired folks. They estimated that they would possibly need two days to complete the job but they were able to finish in one very full day. It was starting to get dark when they were cleaning up which may be the reason for my only complaint. We have found to date 24 roofing nails on the asphalt driveway. I’m just hoping that none find their way into our tires or any visitors we have. I would still highly recommend Roof Medic.

    The entire team at Roof Medic was a pleasure to work with! Incredibly efficient from start to finish. I submitted an online inquiry over the weekend, and I had my inspection already scheduled the following Monday. My inspector Nick was … More ultra efficient and helpful - he gave me a clear rundown of the entire process, and was super responsive every step along the way. Once the materials arrived, I was scheduled right away for a time convenient for my schedule, and the entire job was completed in one (long) day! Chris, the Production Manager, was also helpful in ensuring the roof installation went smoothly, extra materials were picked up quickly, and things were left neat and tidy. Really incredible work all the way around! I enjoyed working with the entire team of professionals at the Roof Medic and can't recommend them enough for anyone in need of roofing services.

He kept me informed through out the project on what to expect as well … More as up dated on any delays.. My new roof looks great. Everyone from Roof Medic was very professional, courteous and easy to work with. I highly recommend Roof Medic for any kind of Roofing needs.

    Read all the great reviews and being a veteran, I was confident in a veteran owned company. Pat came out and did a great assessment. The insurance company pushed back so I decided just to get the repair done where the leak is at. Paid the … More deposit almost 2 weeks ago and was told that Production will contact me. I haven't heard from Production and when I reach out to the office or Pat I am told they are very busy. I have read in other reviews that their communication is good. I would like to see this. I am not asking for them to get to me fast but since I paid the deposit then at least keep me up to date. I look forward to getting the work done and giving Roof Medic the 5 stars they most likely deserve.
    Update: Production reached out to me and scheduled the repair. Looking forward to commenting on the work when it is completed.

    Nick was great about coming to the house he even worked with me to come out to meet the insurance agent. Since it was snowy the insurance agent didn't want to go up to look at the roof so Nick went up for him and took pictures which … More helped the process not get delayed. Knowledgeable about product offerings to help make the right choices for my home. No more leaking roof!

Very pleased with everyone at Roof Medic and also happy to support a veteran owned company. We have already recommended Roof Medic to a coworker.

    I was part of the committee at Cornerstone Baptist Church that contracted with Roof Medic to install a new roof on our facility. From start to finish Roof Medic and all of their employees were great to work with. I have been in construction … More for almost 50 yrs and have worked around many roofing companies and Roof Medic is the best I have seen. They are very professional, and have the knowledge and experience needed to be able to work well with insurance companies. If there is a legitimate insurance claim, Roof Medic will certainly see that you receive everything that you are entitled to. I highly recommend Roof Medic whether there is an insurance claim or not, because their quality and attention to detail is superb. I recognize a well run project and from start to finish this project was well run and our property was cleaned daily.
