How Much Is a New Roof in Texas?

A new roof is one of the largest costs of homeownership you’ll likely face. 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.

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. We value transparency and open communication, so we’re hoping to share some information that will help you narrow down your roofing options.


What affects the cost of a new roof?

As you likely noticed, the exact dollar figure on how much a new roof will cost in Texas varies quite a bit. This is because 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:

Roofing Material

The roofing material you choose for your new roof will have a major impact on the final cost. Asphalt shingles are highly popular due to their relative affordability compared to other roofing options. Metal roofing, on the other hand, is much more expensive—but it makes up for this high upfront cost through excellent durability.

Roof Design and Construction

Does your roof have a simple, straightforward design with few unique sections? Or is it a more complex roof with multiple sections of varying slopes and angles? Was the most recent iteration of your roof installed from scratch, or over the top of existing roofing? The complexity of your roof’s design and construction will directly impact the time it takes to replace your roof, as well as the labor-hours involved in completing the project.

Roof Size

Of course, the size of your roof will also have an impact on the final estimate. Larger roofs—simple or complex—simply take more material to fully replace. This means higher material, transportation, and labor costs, all of which will add up to a higher cost for a new roof.

How do popular roofing materials compare in terms of cost?

The roofing material you choose will likely have the largest impact on the cost of your new roof. Below, we’ve given a general idea for how different materials compare in terms of cost. Keep in mind that this may not be an exact ranking, as costs can fluctuate over time.

Asphalt Shingles


The most popular for a reason: asphalt shingles are almost always the most affordable residential roofing material overall.

Designer or Premium Shingles


Whether chosen for their appearance or for added durability, higher-quality shingles will be more expensive than basic varieties, but still fall on the more affordable end of roofing.

Single-Ply Membranes


Single-ply membrane materials such as EPDM, TPO, and PVC are affordable options used for commercial or low-slope residential applications.

Wood Shakes


For a more rustic look, many homeowners choose wood shake roofing, most often available in cedar.

Metal Shingles


Typically made from steel or aluminum, metal shingles offer a good balance of durability and affordability compared to pricier metal roofing options.

Corrugated Metal


Found almost exclusively in industrial and commercial applications, corrugated metal roofs are another metal roofing option offering excellent durability without breaking the bank.

Concrete Tiles


Tile roofs tend to fall on the more expensive end of roofing, but concrete tiles are an excellent option thanks to their customizability and lower cost.

Slate or Clay Tiles


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.

Zinc and Copper Roofing


Typically, these types of metal roofing will be the most expensive of all materials. They offer unmatched durability and corrosion resistance along with a sleek appearance.

How much do roofers charge per square in Texas?

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.

Why is roofing so expensive?

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.

What time of year is best to replace a 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.

Do I have financing options for my roof replacement?

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.*
