Advantage Roofing always offers free roofing estimates, but you may be curious how our Heathrow roofing contractors figure that number. Let’s do some math together!

Roof repairs and replacements can come with significant price tags depending on the scope of the job. And, unless you have a stack of cash hidden under your mattress, you should try to get the best value for your money. When you call Advantage Roofing for a free roofing estimate, our technicians will factor in many elements before giving you a quote for our services. 

As a family business serving Central Florida for over 30 years, we take pride in offering the best prices and the highest quality for our roofing work. We understand that before you sign a contract for a repair or a new roof, you want to know exactly what you’re paying for. We want to break down how we calculate an estimate and why you can trust that with Advantage Roofing, you’ll be treated like a member of our family.

Roofing Materials

Your roofing estimate starts with what roofing material you need. Different materials have different costs and will affect the bottom line. Asphalt shingles are much less expensive than clay tile. If you need a repair, we will do our best to match the material on your property. Remember that you may pay more for the same material today than you did for your original roof.  

Size Of Your Home Or Business

The scope of the project depends on the size of the roof you need. We use formulas (we won’t bore you with all the math) to determine how much it will cost to use a particular roofing material on your project, whether it’s a minor residential repair or a larger commercial reroof.

Complexity Of Your Roof

How steep is the slope? Are there architectural features that we need to work around? The more complex the project, the more time it will take to complete and, potentially, the more materials we may need. All these factors figure into your roofing estimate.

Labor CostsHeathrow roofing contractors

Labor costs vary by project but include items such as installing roofing materials, removing the old roof if necessary, and any additional work such as repairs or modifications. We understand that this line item can be vague, and we will break it down as much as possible so you can see what you’re paying for.

Permits And Inspections

Depending on the area, there may be costs associated with obtaining permits and scheduling inspections. Local authorities and regulatory agencies typically determine these costs, and while they are not within our control, we will provide transparent information and help you understand the processes. 

Cleanup Costs

Our Heathrow roofing contractors start clean up before we begin by draping tarps over your property that will catch falling debris and nails. When the project is completed, we use a giant magnet to grab any remaining metal and nails so they don’t end up in your flowerbeds or tires.


It’s wise to have a “just in case” line item that allows for any extra, unexpected expenses. If the contingencies are not fully utilized, you may be entitled to a refund or a reduction in the project’s final cost. However, this is subject to negotiation and the terms of your contract. It’s essential to review your contract carefully and discuss the handling of contingency funds with your roofing contractor to ensure both parties clearly understand how unused funds will be handled.
