If you are a homeowner considering installing a new metal roof on your house, then undoubtedly, one of the burning questions on your mind is how much will it cost?

On average, you can expect to pay between $5.50 and $12.00 per square foot of metal roofing installed. Granted, this is a pretty wide pricing range, but, you can expect a metal shingle roof to average between $7.00 to $10.00 per square foot installed, while a standing seam metal roof will cost between $9.00 to $12.00 per square foot installed.

Now, assuming the average cost of $10.00 per square foot of metal roofing installed on an average-sized roof, it will cost about $17,000 to install approximately 17 squares or 1,700 square feet of metal roofing on a typical house. The low-end cost for steel shingles installed over-top of the existing roof would be around $14,500 for the same roof, while the high-end cost of aluminum standing seam would be about $19,500 for a comparable roof.

Stainless, Aluminum, Galvanized

The 3" depth allows for longer spans not possible with lesser depth profiles. The increased span capability allows the use of a lighter gauge, which can prove to be cost effective. Also, because of its long span capability, the use of the N Decking will minimize support requirements. The narrow spacing between the ribs of the N Deck allows for rigid insulation or pouring concrete. The load carrying capabilities of the N Deck generally surpass that of other long span metal decks. N Deck is available in corrugated stainless steel, both T304 and T316, and is suited for caustic environments. It is also available in galvanized, galvalume and painted steel.
