Is a metal roof right for your home? When properly designed and installed, our cool metal roofs can reduce energy consumption, providing cost savings and immediate return on your investment. ABC’s superior quality panels help extend the life of your home’s roof and our broad spectrum of colors, finishes, and gauges give you the beauty and comfort you expect. What does metal roofing cost? Metal roofing has a higher initial cost than other roofing materials; however, your metal roofing investment will save you time and money in the long term. Compared to asphalt shingles, metal roofing has a longer lifespan (15-18 years vs. 60+ years), requires only annual maintenance, and reflects heat, making it more energy efficient than a traditional asphalt roof. These benefits make metal roofing a better long-term investment for your home.

The gauge of the metal is a measurement of how thick it is. The smaller the number, the thicker the metal. 24 gauge metal (sometimes written “24ga”) is thicker than 29 gauge, which is the minimum recommended gauge for residential construction. Some roofs, such as Modular Press Formed Granular Coated roof, are only available in certain gauges (26 gauge in this case). 24 gauge is the recommended gauge for high wind areas. The gauge 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 foot area.)

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.

According to the 2014 US Census, the average square footage of the average American roof is 1700 square feet. 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 wild period in which quotes for steel prices were good only for one hour!)

When considering a metal roof, you’ll first want to determine the fundamental look you want it to have. Residential metal roofing comes in two basic forms that are very different in appearance: sheet-like panels and shingles. Within these two categories, there are many variations, colors, and patterns…more about that later.
