What you should know when planning for a new roof…


Installing your new roof? For many years GVRD Roofing has had customers ask, What will it cost for our new roof to be installed? Installing a new roof will start with us coming over to take a look. The cost of installing a new roof will very.

  • How many layers is the roof?
  • What is the pitch of the roof?
  • Can we get a load from a crane onto the roof
  • Is there plywood under the existing shingles
  • What type of roofing do you want to install
  • Can we get  a bin close to the house
  • Do you want ice and water shield, paper, or synthetic underlay
  • Ridge or eave venting
  • High profile ridge caps
  • How long do you want  it to last
  • Timing
  1. Many older roofs have upwards of 3 or 4 layers of shingles. So imagine how many nails there are holding it down, the added wait to remove and dump.
  2. What is the pitch of your roof? The pitch is a measurement we use to figure out how steep a roof. The higher the pitch meaning 12/12 or more is very steep. A pitch of 4/12 is low slope or you can walk on it.
  3. Loading a roof can entail many hours of back breaking ladder work to get 70 lbs. bundles up a ladder. So if the roof is low slope or close to street access more then likely we can get a crane truck in.
  4. Is there plywood under my existing shingles? Strapping or ship lap over the last 70 years has been the standard. The availability of wood we never thought to use plywood. Over the last 20 years or so Manufacturer’s have gone into many lawsuits. This is because there shingles were failing. Why? Wood will expand thus pushing nails right threw the tar shingles. 10 years ago all manufacturer’s said we won’t warranty a roof unless plywood is installed.


Installing a new roof

High quality recycled roofing products

Cost can add up if you have multiple layers of shingles, there is major water damage or if we need to install plywood. This pricing is based on roofs that are 4/12 to 8/12 pitch. If your roof is very steep cut up or has lots of detail work again the cost can creep up.
