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.
