## Roofing Replacement Cost Calculator

This calculator estimates the total cost of a roof replacement based on the dimensions of your roof, the pitch, and the estimated costs for materials and labor.

### How to Use the Calculator

### Explanation of Calculation

The calculation works as follows:

- The total material cost is calculated by multiplying the area of the roof by the cost per square foot of the materials.
- The total labor cost is calculated by multiplying the area of the roof by the cost per square foot of labor.
- The final total cost is the sum of the total material cost and the total labor cost.
