Composite Roof Costs
Composite roof costs range from $3 to $9 per square foot for materials and installation. Composite materials used for roofs include recycled plastic, wood, laminates materials, hemp, fiberglass and even slate. Some combination of these materials (most manufacturers use a proprietary blend of materials) are made into shingles or panels and receive UV protection and some type of waterproof barrier as well.
Entry Level Materials
Entry level pricing runs $1 to $1.50 psf and will typically be a lower end composite with less expensive material blends. They will often be a thinner shingle and warrantied for 10 to 20 years. They may be offered in less complex patterns and less color or texture options.
Mid Range Materials
Mid range pricing runs $1.50 to $2.50 psf and should be a stronger material blend than the lower end products. Expect a thicker or heavier shingle or panel that has a longer warranty - say 20 to 25 years. These composite roof material may be offered in more complex patterns and/or in a wide variety of colors and textures.
High End Materials
High end pricing runs $2.50 to $3 psf and should be the strongest material blend with the thickest and most durable shingles or panels available. They will usually offer a warranty of 25+ years.
Installation and labor costs on composite roofing should run $2 to $5 per square foot, nearly identical in price to asphalt shingle roofing. If composite panels are used, the psf installation cost will run towards the upper end of the price range. Additional factors that determine the installation price include a contractor's workers comp cost, the pitch of the roof, the season of the project and the overall size and complexity of the project.
