How Much Does A Metal Roof Cost?

Metal roofing is a common choice in commercial roofing because of how long metal roofing lasts. But how much does a metal roof cost?

The national average cost of a metal roof is between $5 to $14 per square foot.

The cost will vary depending on the type of metal used, the size of your metal roof, and whether you need an entire metal roof or, instead, need a less costly metal roof restoration. For a more specific quote, reach out to us at Mid-State Roofing.

Although typically more expensive than asphalt shingle roofs, a metal roof offers more durability. Metal roofs also are an environmentally friendly choice in roof material since metal is 100% recyclable.

Let’s take a look at the various types of metal roofs and what they might cost.

Metal Roof Types and Costs

Steel roofing is the most popular and least expensive industrial metal roof material in Delaware. Steel roofs can provide superior insulation and help regulate the temperature inside your building.

Because Delaware winters can bring about temperatures below zero, metal roofing is a great choice for its heat-conducting properties. Metal roofing is highly reflective and can help property owners save on energy costs.

Other roofing materials include aluminum, copper, zinc, and tin. You can choose a standard seam metal roof, made of panels that are coated for longer durability and interlocking seams, or corrugated metal, made of panels with baked-on enamel and held in place with rubber washer screws.

Following are estimated costs for metal roofs in Delaware:

Types & Estimated Costs of Metal Roofing
Steel $3.50-$4.50 per sq ft

Copper $18 per sq ft
Zinc $7.50 pe sq ft
