Metal roofing is being adopted well in the USA because of its durability. Whether you live in *** York, *** Jersey, Pennsylvania, sunny Florida or the cool climate in Colorado you have probably considered re-roofing your **** at some stage. Today, using metal as the material for roof is becoming more popular as people recognize its aesthetic and financial benefits. Metal roofing can be added to both residential and commercial roofs and still appear elegant. It’s durable, cost-effective and eco-friendly. In the warmer climates of Florida, Louisiana or Texas where the salt residue and harsh sun shines nearly all year round, using a steel material is the favored choice.

The ***** of the metal is a measurement of how ***** it is. The smaller the number, the thicker the metal. 24 ***** metal (sometimes written “24ga”) is thicker than 29 *****, which is the minimum recommended ***** for residential construction. Some roofs, such as Modular Press Formed Granular Coated roof, are only available in certain gauges (26 ***** in this case). 24 ***** is the recommended ***** for high wind areas. The ***** of the roof doesn’t affect the overall price much. The difference is usually a matter of around $100 per square. (A “square” in roofing is a 100 square **** area.)

Standing Seam roofs are the most available type of metal in the US, and can come from a variety of sources – from *** manufacturers like ATAS International, Drexel metals, Englert, MBCI, etc., to local Sheet Metal Shops to even individual roofing contractors who own a roll-forming machine and can supply the panel for you. On top of these there are many online stores selling standing seam, that can ship it to your house from halfway across the US. Thus prices can vary greatly.

The type of metal your use for your roof is also important. Aluminum, copper, stainless steel, tin, and zinc are among the most commonly used for roofing.

When comparing asphalt with metal, the durability of a metal roof is its crowning glory. A roof that will probably outlast its owner is a good investment. Asphalt is more economical, and that’s why it has the majority of the residential market at the moment. When metal becomes more economically viable, that may change. However, for now, asphalt is king.

How the roof is fastened is another consideration. Exposed fasteners are more economical. The fastener, however, is exposed to the elements which increases the risk for leaking. A good roof installer will remove your *** roofing material and use a “peel and stick” underlayment to minimize this risk. Concealed fasteners cost more, but they are ****** from the elements, giving greater protection from exposure and potential leaking. They also create a more sleek appearance.

Corrugated Steel Panels (R-Panel) costs about $120-150 per square (for 26 Ga Kynar coated panels), and has the least amount of available flashing – (ridge cap, gable trim, valley pan) and can also utilize custom made side-wall flashing. It is important to understand though that Corrugated roofing is not intended for use on complex roofs.

Copper / Zinc roofing is also usually made in the form of Standing Seam (though you can find copper tile, slate and shingle profiles). Cost for these to metals are more volatile than steel or aluminum, thus can change up or down (usually only up though) many times throughout the year. You can expect to pay about $700-900+ per square of copper or zinc standing seam with accessories.

At the moment, metal roofs account for 10% of the residential market. However, even asphalt roof installers agree that metal roofs are the roof of the future.

According to the 2014 US Census, the average square footage of the average American roof is 1700 square ****. Calculating the cost of a metal roof isn’t as simple as just knowing your square footage, however. The price of metal is subject to fluctuation. Sometimes it can be pretty volatile. (In 2007, steel had a very **** period in which quotes for steel prices were good only for one hour!)

Metal Roofs have continuously proven.. ..that they have the longest life of any roof on the market, a lifetime! Metal is lightweight, maintenance-free, fireproof energy efficient, and durable. *** Technology The technology in steel roof coating today includes heavy zinc-aluminum alloy coatings that provide excellent protection to the steel core. Even field or factory cut edges are protected. Learn More

1) Standing Seam – architectural vertical panels with concealed fasteners. 2) Corrugated Steel Panels – vertical panels with exposed fasteners. 3) Metal Shingles – horizontally installed interlocking metal panels that imitate slate, tile or wood shingles/shakes. 4) Stone Coated Steel Tiles & Shingles – heavy ***** steel panels, coated with crushed stones powder (typically installed in the southern and midwest states).

However, with low cost comes relatively low quality, and there is nothing you can do about it. Corrugated metal panels are made of VERY thin metal (29 Ga. galvanized steel), and are usually painted with acrylic coating, which lasts about 15 years. These roofs are also installed by screwing fasteners right through the panel, into the deck / substrate or purlins (horizontal framing). The screws become loose after a few years, and need re-tightening. These are also usually the source of leaks. Additionally, corrugated steel is not suitable for complex roofs with valleys / dormers / skylights, because the system lacks crucial flashing components.

Unlike corrugated steel, metal shingles are made of a much higher quality steel (G-90 or Galvalume) or Aluminum, and are painted with premium Kynar 500 resin based coatings. Metal shingles use a concealed fastener installation method, and are not subject to rusting and leaks nearly as much as corrugated panels.

The ***** thing you’ll need to think about is the style. As we said above, metal roofs can be made to look like a number of different roof styles. Different styles may not be suitable for all materials and gauges, so give this some careful thought:

Cost and durability aside, you should be thinking about your climate. Metal has a lot of advantages over asphalt in most climates, but in certain conditions asphalt might be a better choice.

The least expensive type of metal is corrugated steel. Often installed over purlins or over existing asphalt shingles, these panels come in large, easy to install sizes (3′ wide panel, cut to specific length, or as standard 3×10′ panels sold at **** improvement stores like the **** Depot (not in all states).

Overall, stone coated steel is not a budget-friendly metal roof, as it can get very costly, when installed on a complex roof. However, it is much cheaper than a **** clay tile roof, which costs about $15-20 / ****.

You may notice that there is a HUGE range in total installation cost. The truth is, a standing seam roof can be rather inexpensive on a simple ranch-type house, if you use 26 Ga steel. However, if you install it onto a rather complicated roof (with dormers / skylights / hips) the total cost will suddenly skyrocket – especially if you go with a premium aluminum metal. If you want copper or zinc, expect to pay well over $20 / sq.ft.
