About us

At RoofingCalc.com we make the residential roofing and solar industry more transparent. We answer questions that so many others either dodge or don’t have the time or expertise to answer properly:

RoofingCalc.com is a homeowner education resource providing up-to-date information on most popular residential roofing options and their costs. We also cover popular home exterior remodels including PV solar power systems for residential rooftops. This website is brought to you by Alex “The Roof Guy” and his team of residential roofing and house remodeling experts.

Alex “The Roof Guy”

Alex is a former residential roofing contractor who sold his roofing and remodeling contracting company to focus exclusively on publishing roofing, PV solar, and exterior home remodeling information guides.

Getting a new roof can be a daunting and stressful process for many homeowners. To simplify the process of getting a new roof, we built a web-based calculator designed to estimate the cost to install a new roof.

We provide homeowners with interactive roof estimating tools and sound advice to simplify the process of getting a new roof through timely information and expert answers to pressing questions.

Pricing options are available for roofs ranging from simple to difficult and cut-up, with a wide selection of popular roofing materials including composition shingles, cedar shakes, clay tiles, slate, and metal roofing for residential homes.

Mission: At RoofingCalc.com, our mission is to help homeowners navigate their roofing and home remodeling projects through well-researched and practically-useful information.

If you are in the process of researching residential or light commercial roofing options, our Advice Section provides digest-style information for homeowners considering replacing their old roof, or simply wanting to learn about different roofing options available.

When it comes to comparison of different roofing products and popular asphalt shingle lines from top brands, we aim to provide 100% unbiased, well-researched, and actionable information. We maintain the highest editorial standards and are not affiliated with or incentivized by any roofing product manufacturer.

Timely and accurate information is what this roofing consumer resource is all about. Our homeowner guides are written by experienced roofing professionals who have installed numerous different roofing systems ranging from asphalt shingles and metal roofing to flat roofs and everything in between.

Every consumer guide we publish is always thoroughly researched, fact-checked, and updated on an ongoing basis. Lastly, we always take the time to answer homeowners’ questions on any of the guides or information we publish on RoofingCalc.com.
