Location doesn’t just matter when it comes to the price of a home, but it can also determine how much you’re going to have to spend when something in that home inevitably breaks.

A recent survey from Angi asked 1,000 people across the U.S. to share information about recent home repairs and the costs associated with them. While 63% of respondents told Angi they’ve experienced sticker shock when getting an estimate for home repairs, there was quite a bit of cost variance state-to-state.

According to the survey report, 40% of home maintenance repairs are due to normal wear and tear, with the most common maintenance nationwide being roof repair. This makes sense, of course, as roofs are exposed to a lot of risk, especially when it comes to weather. Homes in states that experience more natural disasters and extreme weather are more susceptible to exterior damage.

HVAC systems are also a costly home repair, with Angi estimating the average HVAC system costs about $7,500 to replace, and people in states that experience extremely hot summers may find themselves replacing their units more often than those in more temperate areas.

In the slideshow above, we rank the top ten most expensive states for home repair, according to Angi.
