Cool Roof Calculator

Our free cool roof calculator can provide an accurate cost estimate for several options of cool roofs. Cool roof is a somewhat generic term for any roof that reflects UV rays from the surface of the roof, thereby creating a much more energy efficient roofing solution that can save significantly on energy bills. We provide pricing for the three most popular cool roofing options, including foam, rubber and metal. This cool roof calculator breaks down the costs according to materials, installation costs and a then provides a fully installed price. Our roof replacement cost estimator can provide accurate pricing according to the size of the project.


Cool Roof Calculator Basics

Determining the cost of a cool roof can be particularly challenging due to the huge variations involved in each replacement projects. Here are just some of the variables; removal of the existing material, steepness of the roof, number of obstacles on the roof, addition of dormers or hips, material needed, repair work to the existing structure, the time of year in which the project is started.


Foam Roof Materials

Price Range:
$2 – $4 psf
Homeowners can expect a material cost of $200 to $400 per square.


Rubber Roofing Materials

Price Range:
$3 - $8 psf
Homeowners can expect a material cost of $300 to $800 per square.

Metal Roofing Materials

Price Range:
$4.50 to $17 psf

Homeowners can expect a material cost of $450 to $1,700 per square.


Installation & Labor Costs

Price Range:
$3 – $8 psf
Homeowners can expect an installation or labor cost of $300 to $800 per square. Labor costs tend to decrease per square foot as the project size increases. More steeply pitched roofs increases the psf cost, as well as the use of materials that are more difficult to install.
