Today, there are mainly two popular types of metal roofing for homes; metal shingles and standing seam.
Metal shingles form a four way inter-locking design and can last well over 30 years, providing reliable protection and energy savings for your home.
A metal shingle roof is a less expensive option than standing seam, because metal shingles are easier to manufacture, ship, store, and install.
A typical metal shingles roof may range in price from $15,000 to $25,000 for a steel shingles roof fully installed. This assumes a roof surface measuring 2,000 sq.ft. or 20 squares, ranging from $750 to $1,250 per square of metal shingles installed.
Note that the cost of aluminum shingles or shakes roof would normally be slightly higher than a similar system made of G-90 heavy gauge (GA 24) galvanized steel.
A copper shingles roof may range in price anywhere from $30,000 to $40,000 and more, depending on the size and complexity of your roof.
A similar roof would cost $20,000 to $30,000 for a 20 square standing seam roof.
Copper Standing Seam
It would cost $35,000 to $45,000 for a 20 square standing seam roof.
The pricing for zinc standing seam would be between $25,000 and $35,000 for a similar-sized roof.
