You don’t need to search any further. This is the right guy! I needed my roof to be replaced. The wood underneath my shingles were rotten and the roof was leaking furiously! I searched online for a LONG time, carefully scanning the qualifications of each of the roofers. THEN, I saw a recommendation I just had to check out. So, I called Pablo Schroder and met with him. Nice, professional, respectful, knowledgeable, gives good professional advice, and could tell right of way, he’s definitely not a scammer. I didn’t call or meet with anyone else. He was the one. AND, the topping on the cake is, his price estimates were lower than I expected. HIRED HIM ON THE SPOT, with no regrets. Not only the roof, but his company is also for Home Improvements and I hired him for quite a number of repairs after the roof replacement. I am so lucky I found Pablo. He and his workers are the BEST!!!

Greg was a great choice for our roofing job! He was there when he said he would be, got the job done quickly and cleaned up like he was never there. Roof looks fantastic and he was great to work with, will definitely hire again in the future!

I gotta say I was extremely happy with Nescor.. Yes its not 5 star, but let me explain. 15 years being a home owner means you probably have dealt with so many different contractors. I don't like Generalizing, but they can be a difficult lot. I needed gutters replaced, some minor things fixed, and my bathroom needed a new tiny window. I called around ,signed up on some online services.. and my phone was ready to explode from the calls. Note to all, get a alt number (burner phone) The reason I am posting it at 4 star is the aggressiveness of the sales putch. Sales guy kept just going on and on, I kept saying "YES!!!". he seemed to think I was saying no.. He just didn't get it. I found thumbtack the other day while looking for a new roofer. still want to see what's out there sorry guys ... Liked the app, I left this for them .

I had an amazing experience with DiNoia Construction and plan to use them again. The owner, Joey DiNoia coordinated everything and found the best quality products and roofers for the best price. He kept me well informed throughout the process and was a pleasure to work with. The roofers showed up on time and were polite and professional. I felt very comfortable with them working on the house. They completed the job on time within budget and cleaned up afterwards. The roof is beautiful, I would definitely recommend this company.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a standing seam metal roof?

A standing seam metal roof may be a strong, durable, safe choice when you’re considering metal roofing installation options. A standing seam refers to the raised seam where the sheet metal roofing panels join. Traditionally, shingles and roof panels lie flush to the roof, making them more prone to rust or penetration by water at their seams. In a standing seam metal roof, the raised (or standing) seams run vertically from the roof ridge to the eaves, with no horizontal seams. In addition, the fasteners joining the metal panels together are concealed, providing even fewer opportunities for water or moisture to build up. The cost to install a standing seam metal roof will depend on the type of metal you select, the size of your roof, and the cost of roofing labor in your region. Materials will play a major role in your metal roofing installation costs. If you select standard galvanized steel, the cost per square (100 square feet) might be in the $150-$300 range, while a high-end choice such as copper or zinc could be between $1,000 and $1,500 per square. Here is one example of cost:   

  • Standing seam metal roof: $300 per square to start, including materials and labor.
    • A 30-square roof could cost $9,000 or more.

Can a metal roof be installed over shingles?

Metal roofs are durable, environmentally friendly, safe and budget-friendly. If you’re considering an update, metal roofing installation doesn’t have to mean completely removing your old roof. In many cases, metal roofing can be installed over your existing shingles. Research building codes in your state, as many require that after two roofs have been installed, all roofing materials must be completely removed before a third roof can be put on. This protects your home’s structural integrity and your family’s safety. Carefully read contractor reviews and choose someone with extensive experience with metal roofing installation. One concern when installing metal over shingles is that over time, condensation can build on the shingles and cause the metal to rust. This will lead to rust around the panels, making them more likely to come loose in a storm. Nationally, the average cost for metal roofing installation ranges from $6,000 to $20,000. The wide price range represents different roof sizes, different types of metal, and the cost of labor in different parts of the country — and can also include the cost of removing an old shingle roof prior to installing the metal. As a line item, the average cost of removing an old roof to prepare for installing a new roof, plus adding new roof decking, costs on average about $45-$75 per square (the pro roofer’s term for 100 square feet), depending on the pitch of the roof. Always make sure you have a clearly written contract and a warranty on both the labor and the metal.

 

How much does it cost for a metal roof?
