How Much Does it Cost to Install a Metal Roof?

Updated July 19, 2017

For many people, the installation cost of a metal roof is a worthy investment. With recent improvements in their reliability, along with various colours and styles to choose from, metal roofs are now more popular than in times past.


There are several types of metal roofs to choose from. Stainless steel roofs are rust- and corrosion-proof. If you prefer something lightweight, an aluminium roof possesses this quality. Copper metal roofs are also available, however, they carry a higher price tag than other materials.


Many benefits come with the installation of a metal roof. Steel is completely recyclable, which makes it a great choice for environmentally minded people. A metal roof also holds up well against the elements, such as snow, ice and hail.


The cost to install a metal roof may vary by location, therefore, the following prices are based on estimates given by a company in Massachusetts. A steel shingled roof averages a little over £455 per 100 square feet of surface area. Installation on a typical one-story house would cost between £7,800 and £11,700.
