Prices for Standing Seam and Metal Shingles Roofs
Metal Roofing is a premium roofing material manufactured from a high quality coated steel or aluminum coil. Most of high-end residential metal roofing materials are made from hot dip galvanized G-90 steel used for metal shingles, or galvalume (an even better type of coating used to protect steel sheets from oxidation due to environmental elements such as oxygen, moisture, salt, etc.) steel for standing seam metal roofs.
Majority of high-end metal roofing profiles are manufactured from one of the following metals: 24 to 26 gauge steel, 32 to 40 mil thick aluminum sheets/coil, and 16 to 20 oz copper.
Metal shingles generally cost $2.00 to $6.00 per sq. ft. for steel and/or aluminum shingles plus flashing. Most products have an average cost of $3.00 to $4.00 per square foot.
Standing Seam metal roofing panels generally cost anywhere from $4.00 to $5.00 per square foot, but the cost may be significantly higher for smaller orders.
Installation costs for steel or aluminum shingles start at about $4.00 per square foot, and may go up to $9.00 per sq. ft. for roofs with multiple dormers, and/or valleys. Architectural standing seam metal roofing installation prices can range anywhere from $5.00 to $11.00 per square foot depending on the type of roof. A rule of thumb, the more difficult and cut up your roof is, the higher your installation costs will be. With metal roofing, dormers, skylights, valleys, end-walls, and level changes take longer to work around than it would take with traditional roofing shingles.
A metal roof for an average home may cost anywhere from $12,000 to $27,000 with more difficult roofs being at the higher end of the pricing range.
