Whether you’re tired of the traditional look of a shingled roof, or you’d like something more durable, a metal roof may be at the top of the list of desires for your home. Metal roofing is becoming increasingly more popular in today’s search for that perfect rustic yet modern aesthetic.
If the price of metal roofs seems prohibitive, consider the fact that they can last up to 70 years, which is much longer than the average asphalt shingle roof. In some cases, a metal roof can even be installed on top of old shingles, which can bring down the high metal roofing prices, and also it must be done by a professional roof repair contractor in Montreal to avoid unnecessary expenses.
In roofing, a “sheet” equates to 100 square feet. Any metal roofing materials cost estimate you receive from a roofing contractor will likely be listed in sheets, so it’s important to understand this. When it comes to roofing material, there are many different types of metal roofs, and they all vary in price.
Factors that can affect the cost to install a metal roof include the pitch of the roof, the style you’d like the roof to have (type of material, whether you want a standing seam or a shingled look and whether you want the fasteners visible or concealed) and whether you’ll have your roof coated.
If you have a steep roof, the installation crew won’t be able to walk on it while they’re working. This adds to the amount of time it will take them to complete the job, and thus, the price you’ll pay. A lower pitch that’s safe to walk on will cost less.
