It’s no secret that roofs cost money. But how much do roofing companies in Minnesota charge per square? Depending on the type of material, labor costs, and other factors, it can cost anywhere from $475 to $750 for each square of roofing installed. Let’s take a closer look at what you need to know about the cost of roofing here in Minnesota.

Labor Costs

Labor is one of the largest components of the total cost of a roof installation or repair job. The price you pay for labor depends on the size of your roof and the complexity of its design. If you have an intricate roof structure with many angles and slopes, it will require more time and expertise to complete than a regular-shaped roof. Labor costs also vary based on where you live in Minnesota; in more rural areas, like northern Minnesota, labor rates tend to be lower than in larger cities like the Twin Cities metro.

Material Costs

The materials used by your chosen roofer will depend on what type of roofing system you choose (asphalt shingles, metal panels, standing seam metal, etc). Generally speaking, asphalt shingle roofs tend to be less expensive than metal roofs because they are easier to install and require fewer materials. It is important to keep in mind that the long-term cost savings associated with asphalt shingle roofs may not be worth it if your climate experiences extreme weather conditions like heavy snowfall or high winds that could damage your asphalt shingle roof over time. On the other hand, metal roofs can last up to 50 years and are incredibly durable against even extreme weather conditions.

In conclusion, there is no one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to determining how much a Minnesota roofer will cost per square. The overall cost will depend on factors such as material type; labor costs; installation fees; and whether or not you source materials yourself or purchase them through your contractor. Ultimately, it pays to shop around before committing to any particular contractor. Get multiple quotes so that you can compare prices and make sure you’re getting the best deal possible! With careful research and comparison shopping, finding an experienced Minnesota roofing contractor who fits within your budget should be easy!
