How To Calculate Roofing Costs:
When installing new roofing, there are many factors to consider when estimating price. Don't just look at roofing material, although a big chunk of the cost is the type of material, you also need to consider how many stories, the complexity of the roof, slope or pitch, how many chimneys, skylights, dormers, ridges, roofing company, geographic location, taxes, and permits as well.
* When using the roofing estimator online tool remember that this is only just an estimation, and shouldn't be used as a real price quote.

While useful, the online calculator does not consider:

- Geographic location and the affect on price
- Any taxes or permits required to remove and install new roofing
- Any systems on the roof that may need to be replaced
