Roofing costs for these various type of jobs obviously depend on a lot of factors, like your location, your type of of roof and the overall size of your roof. Therefore, the cost of your roof might vary a lot based on what tools you use for the estimate.

For example, the lifetime of your current roof might not be any longer than 5 years.

Especially since you’re going to have to upgrade your entire roof anyway.

Roof isolation costs

Isolating your roof is almost always a solid economical decision. A roof with lacking isolation is not just resulting in extra costs, it’s also quite bad for the environment.

Especially when you are already planning on having work done on your roof.

The approximate costs of your roof isolation depends on various factors. Below table shows common price ranges for roof isolation costs for inclined roofs and flat roofs.
