We typically don’t think about the condition of the roof on our homes until we realize it has failed us and isn’t doing its intended job. Then, we seem to be in panic mode! Perhaps water is dripping in the living room, shingles are missing, water is in the basement, or perhaps the latest storm has created problems. These are just a few indications of potential roof damage. Before the stress can set in, let’s discuss roof replacement for the home.
The cost of a roof replacement in Springfield ranges from $6,000 to $25,000 depending on the material used, the size of the home, and additional costs from the roofing contractor. Here is a brief breakdown of costs related to the size of a home. 1 roofing square is equal to a 10 x 10-foot area, or 100 square feet.

Deciding it is time for a new roof before it’s too late is a wise decision. Here are a few things to keep your eyes out for.
Brown or yellow stains on your interior ceilings are an indication that your roof is no longer holding up as it should. A small, single leak can be easily repaired, however, it can be a challenge to determine just where the leak is coming from. Water will travel an interesting route, and by the time it is discovered, the original area of damage may have greatly increased. if the roof has multiple areas of weakness, a full replacement is recommended
Missing or damaged shingles
Perhaps the latest wind storm blew through and created some damage to the shingles. Missouri is no stranger to tornados, hail, blizzards, and heat. Weather is unpredictable so make sure you keep an eye on your roof year-round. Inspect the roof after each storm and replace the damaged or bent shingles. Unfortunately, there are times when the damage is larger than expected, and a full roof replacement is a wise option.
Age of Your Roof
The duration of roofing materials differs. Asphalt shingles last approximately 20 years, while a metal roofing system can last 40 to 70 years. It is wise to know the age of your roof, so you can begin to budget for the roof replacement costs.
Another thing to consider when it comes to replacing your roof is to work with a trusted local roofing contractor. Here are some reasons why it is wise to work with a local company.
- A local company can be easily reached if there are complications
- A local company will understand the city and state rules, requirements, and all permits needed
- They live in the same town you do and understand the weather conditions
- References from your neighbors and friends about the roofing company hold weight
