It’s important to understand that “metal roofing” is a broad term covering a range of materials with a large disparity in price. Metal roofing materials will generally run you anywhere from $7.00 to $9.00 per square foot, depending on which kind you choose. However, there are more affordable options, like steel panels, which usually cost you slightly less, as well as high-end materials, like copper roofing, which tend to average a little bit more on the pricier side. Here are the most common types of metal roofs and their individual costs:
Standing seam metal roofs will cost you about $4.00 to $6.50 per square foot.. This is the most common metal roof design due to its availability in the U.S. The design features vertical panels that are joined by interlocking seams.
Corrugated steel panel roofs are the least expensive type of metal roofing, costing about $1.20 to $5.00 per square foot comparable to the price of asphalt shingle roofing. It is thin and lightweight, which means it can be installed over existing roofing. This cuts down on the costs of removing old roofing. However, the quality tends to match the price, as these panels are vulnerable to leaks and rust.
Steel & Aluminum shingle roofing runs $3.00 to $9.00 per square foot. Metal roofing tiles and shingles aren’t as affordable as corrugated panels, however they are a better deal. They typically last 40 years or more and are much more resistant to leaks and rust than corrugated metal roofing panels.
Stone coated steel tiles and shingles tend to cost $1.85 to $4.00 per square foot. This metal roof type allows for aesthetic diversity by offering the benefits of metal roofing with the look of more traditional clay or slate shingles.
Copper Zinc Metal Roofs price between $4.00 to $15.00 per roofing square foot, and are considered one of the highest quality metal roofing types.
You can choose any paint finish you would like for a metal roof, depending on the preferred color and desired energy efficiency. Paint quality varies, ultimately affecting the price of the materials you purchase for installation. This should be included in your metal roofing quote from a professional metal roof installer.
Keep in mind that underlayment and the other accessories needed for metal roofing installation tends to cost $4.00 to $5.00 per square foot.
