"conversation as to the poor ventilation and insulation of my 100 year old home, as well as his concern that the massive icicles could be damaging my roof. Years ago I had received a quote for fixing all of my ventilation and insulation woes, and don't recall how much it was for, except that it was going to cost an arm and a leg, and at that time I had neither to spare. Tomas thoroughly maneuvered his way through the various nooks and crannies of the attic area, measured, took photos, found leaks, damaged rafters and other areas of concern, then later that evening wrote up an extremely detailed email outlining all of the work that needed to be done to make my home a whole lot cozier, not to mention safer. I appreciated the way he broke things down into chunks and provided options, depending on how much I wanted or was able to spend. He did some of the work on evenings and Saturdays, and the bulk of it while I was at work on two separate Tuesdays. The house was empty but I had nary a fear about leaving it open to him. I ended up paying for every option he outlined on the list, as it all just made sense and, although I did not request a second opinion, felt his quotes were reasonable. He finished in a reasonable amount of time. His communication (text, email, in person) was excellent. He bulked up the insulation in my home from way below code (R12) to above code (R61) - and wow can I tell the difference! He was able to provide photos of the various repairs and work he did. The attic is now vented and filled with new insulation, the various openings that had been gaping and drafty with old insulation spilling out are now sealed, tidy and neatly framed in with wood. In fact, I commented on one of the attic closures he built, and his response was, in essence: "I care about my work and want things to look good." I plan to hire Tomas in the future for additional work on this old house. In fact, I take comfort in knowing that I can call on someone like Tomas and trust that he will do a great job at a fair price."

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.
