The Cost of Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is becoming an increasingly popular option for both residential and commercial properties. They’re incredibly durable and their longevity is unrivaled. You don’t need to conduct a lot of maintenance on them, either. The main drawback is that they’re considerably more expensive than other materials.

It’s important to get multiple quotes from a few different metal roof contractors. This will ensure that you get the best contractor for your needs. Construct a budget and keep in mind that the full installation process will include a shingle tear-off to get rid of the old roof, deck repair if necessary, and a synthetic underlayment.

The first quote they get is an exposed fastener r-panel. The home they are using in the example has a roof that is around 3,000 square feet. The cost of the r-panel is $3.75 to $4.05 per square foot, which means the total cost will probably land between $11,250 to $12,150.

The next option is a SMI 1.5″ Snaplock 450 panel that cost $5.28 to $7.45. The total cost is a considerable amount higher than the first option, sitting between $15,850 to $22,350. For more information on different roofing costs and how to determine your own, check out the video in the link above.
