Know What Should Be Included in Your Roof Replacement—and Avoid Corner Cutters As a homeowner, it may seem like a roof replacement is a roof replacement, no matter who you’re...
As the leading roofing experts in San Antonio, our team at Dolan Roofing & Construction hopes to keep our clients informed about their roofing options, as well as what to expect from a roofing project.
A new roof in Texas carries an average cost of between $6,000 and $20,000, with most roofs costing around $12,000 across the state on average.
We value transparency and open communication, so we’re hoping to share some information that will help you narrow down your roofing options.
Every home, every roof, and every roofing situation is unique. Here are some of the major factors that will affect the cost of your new roof:
The most popular for good reason: asphalt shingles are almost always the most affordable residential roofing material overall. Additionally they offer a classic Americana look that most homeowners prefer.
Upgrade the look, durability and quality of your asphalt shingles with a premium asphalt shingle. Choose from a wide variety of designs and enjoy the peace of mind of a more durable shingle.
Standing seam metal roofing offers a beautiful, affordable alternative to a traditional asphalt shingle roof. If you're looking for a classic yet contemporary aesthetic, standing seam metal is a great material to consider!
On the more expensive end of roofing, slate and clay tiles both carry a high upfront cost. However, these materials can also last for generations when properly maintained.
Roof coatings can address leaks, drafts, and many other common roofing problems without the need for a more costly roof replacement.
Tile roofs tend to be more expensive end of roofing, but concrete tiles are an excellent option thanks to their customizability and lower cost relative to other roof tiles.
Single-ply membrane materials such as EPDM, TPO, and PVC are affordable options used for commercial or low-slope residential applications.
Typically steel or aluminum, metal shingles offer a good balance of durability and affordability compared to pricier metal roofing options.
For a more rustic look, many homeowners choose wood shake roofing, most often available in cedar. Wood shake roofs often last 40-50 years.

Roofers will often define their rates in terms of price “per square,” or the cost per 100 square feet. In most cases, the price per square will fall anywhere from $200–$300.
Currently, many factors have conspired to increase the cost of roofing. Manufacturers are struggling to keep up with demand and have raised prices, which in turn is reflected in roofing costs. Quality labor is also in high demand, and it’s important to hire experienced roofers—rather than inexperienced, cut-rate contractors—to ensure you get a high-quality roof.
Both fall and spring are ideal seasons for roofing, with fall being the most popular overall due to mild temperatures and relative lack of severe storms and heavy rains that can cause delays. Here in Texas, “fall” can often extend into the winter months as long as temperatures remain mild.
It depends on your roofer! Many roofers work with financing companies because they understand many homeowners don’t have the money for a new roof saved up ahead of time. At Dolan Roofing, we partner with Sunlight Financial to offer our customers more flexible roof financing options.*
