How we are different

Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home, and when it’s time to install a new roof, finding the best contractor for the job can be overwhelming. Here, we will talk about how much a new roof will cost you, as well as tips on how you can measure up your current roof and estimate how much material is needed for the project.

We’ve built roofing calculators in the past. But we noticed a trend: people didn’t know how large their roof was. An idea was born—what if instead of homeowners going through a lengthy process of figuring out their roof dimensions, speaking to a salesperson, trying to determine their roof complexity, and gaining enough of an understanding to make an accurate estimate, they could just enter some basic info and get instant results?

At Instant Roofer our approach is different: we won’t spam you and we don’t try to sell you something else. We help answer your questions about replacing roofs without any of that nonsense.

Instant Roofer was born out of this idea. Take a couple of tech nerds and some roofers to build the easiest, fastest, and most affordable way to calculate a roof cost anywhere in America.

Best part… We’re 100% owned, developed, and operated by Americans.
