"He and the company are literally 'in the neighborhood' but they also feel like a neighbor when dealing with customers. This was not only true of myself and my husband - but also in his interactions with other neighbors who came and asked about our renovation - and resulted in asking about projects needed on their own homes. He stayed in contact with us throughout the project and ensured that we were comfortable every step of the way. He was even comfortable with us going to the local supplier to pick out our own entry, screen and patio doors - which is way better than looking at a catalog or online. The size of our project was massive - but Renan and the team made it seem easy from start to finish. They take pride in their work and it shows. There are beams that extend from both ends of our roof which were not exactly identical in size - Renan took the extra time to restore them so that in the finish product looked better than when the house was originally built. We decided to close in several areas that previously had windows - once again Renan and the team ensured that the inside work was ready for drywall - making it easier for my interior contractor to complete that portion of the work. There were also a few structural challenges without home that came into play - which were not actually part of the original deal . . . but Leo and Renan evaluated the situation and decided that the extra hours of labor needed to 'make it right' were worth it to have a better overall finished project in the end. I really cannot say enough good things about this experience with the entire team from Advanced Roofing, siding and windows - these guys are just awesome. If you are looking for any of the services that they provide - you will be glad that you contacted them. If we have other projects in the future - we will certainly be calling Leo right from the start! Work: Our home needed a full exterior facelift including roofing, siding, windows, doors, and gutters. We also knew that there were some structural issues hidden under the old roof - so we needed a company that not only could perform the entire job of renewing the exterior of our home - but also to evaluate and repair those issues. We contacted Advanced Roofing, siding and windows via their website and I received a call from Leo. He promptly setup an appointment and came out to inspect our home and provide a detailing estimate."

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost for a metal roof?

Metal roofing installation is an attractive option thanks to metal’s long lifespan, hardiness and fire-retardant properties. Nationally, the average cost for metal roofing installation ranges from $6,000 to $20,000.There are different types of metal roofs, each with their own installation needs and materials costs. Roof size also affects your metal roofing installation costs, as do regional labor rates. Roof size is measured in squares; one square equals 100 square feet. Here are some examples of the average cost for a metal roof:

  • Standard metal roof: $120-$150 per square to start, including materials and labor
    • A 30-square roof (a 3,000-square-foot roof) could cost between $3,600 and $4,500 for a typical three-bedroom home.
  • Snap-Loc metal roof: $200-$225 per square to start, including materials and labor.
    • A 30-square roof could cost $6,000-$6,750.
  • Standing seam metal roof: $300 per square to start, including materials and labor.
    • A 30-square roof could cost $9,000 or more.
  • Tuff-Rib metal roof: $250-$350 per square to start, including materials and labor.
    • A 30-square roof could cost $7,500-$10,500.
  • Mid-range metal roof package, including all accessories: $300-$500 per square.
    • A 30-square roof could cost $9,000-$15,000.
  • High-end metal roof package — such as zinc or copper — and all accessories: $1,000-$1,500 per square.
    • A 30-square roof could cost $30,000-$45,000.

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.

 

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.
