Prices for asphalt shingles, the common type of shingles, will cost between $120 and $140 per square. Other kind of roofing materials such as slate and clay tiles, wooden shake roofs and roofs made from metal have higher costs. A typical metal roof will cost between $350 and $1100 per square foot. The average roof replacement cost will range from $5,000 – $12,000 in total.
