Roof Replacement: Northern Virginia

In this edition of Schaefer Burdett’s customer journey, we will be highlighting a townhouse roof replacement.  Townhouses are a unique project – they’re often 3-stories high and usually significantly smaller and quicker projects than single family homes.  However, many townhouses have unique shapes, pitches, and layouts.  This townhouse, as seen in our final drone picture, has an extended back side of the roof, making it larger than the average townhouse roof.

A normal town home roof is roughly 1,000 square feet, accounting for waste during the construction job.  According to Cost Vs Value Report, the average cost for a roof replacement in the Great Washington Area is $24,647 for 235 lb fiberglass asphalt shingles for a 3,000 square foot roof.  These types of shingles include Certainteed Landmark, GAF Timberline HD, among others.

Breaking the math down, $24,647 into 3,000 square feet results in $8.21 per square foot.  This is the cost per square foot to replace a roof in Northern Virginia, on average.  If you own a normal townhouse at 1,000 square feet, you’re looking at paying about $8,210 on average.  This pricing does not represent Schaefer Burdett’s roofing pricing.  In fact, Schaefer Burdett is almost always priced below the national average especially for asphalt roofs. We maintain extremely high quality but have a low-overhead business, resulting in a great value for our customers.

So, if you’re getting door hangers that are advertising “$5,000 per roof!” without having ever been on your roof, measured your roof with an EagleView, or even met you, beware!  These types of companies often have limited or zero project management during the job and quality could be questionable.  Schaefer Burdett Exteriors prices each roof individually after speaking with our customers in-person, hand-measuring the roof, or ordering a reliable satellite report on the roof size and slope.

If you or anyone you know needs a new roof before we head into the busy fall, please mention the code “CVV” and get $250 off your next project.  Schaefer Burdett Exteriors specializes in all types of roofing, siding, windows, and doors. Please contact us here if you’d like a free estimate:
