"Well we have officially now our own CONTRACTOR HORROR STORY thanks to Home Geeks USA. What a long journey through hell! What a long long journey through hell! Short version: wrong measurement of all the new windows, inside trims and paints damaged, cheaper siding installed, cheaper insulation and awful deck railing. Full version: We hired HGUSA to change all the windows around the house, install new insulation and new siding and rebuild our deck. Big job and paying cash! On the first day I arrived with coffee and all bunch of donuts for the crew ... It was just before we found out that none of the new custom made windows had been measured properly. None of them, up to 7 inches wrong... Because of that mistake, all the trims around the windows got damaged, so were the drywalls and the paint. They said they would fix it, so why complain? Sure! But what a mess! What a burden to have to deal with all that trouble while it could have been done right in the first place. My dining room was a complete disaster the evening before Thanksgiving. We signed the contract in August, can you believe that? We also found out the insulation we paid for was not installed. Supposedly it was available only in bulk. So instead of discussing the issue with us, they decided all by themselves to put a less performamt one on. And oddly enough also much cheaper! I cannot go over that one as it was the main purpose of all this work, more than only the aesthetic aspect of it. While almost all the siding was put on, we discovered they were installing the cheap version of the Alside siding (Conquest) instead of the high-end one (Charter Oak) we paid for. Same brand, same color but a much much cheaper version. A mistake they said. Another one. And surprisingly again in our disfavor. They offered $500 as a compensation to keep the cheap siding. Yeah! Sure! What a joke when you know the actual difference of price and quality between these 2 versions! We insisted on having the Alside Charter Oak siding we paid for being installed. It delayed everything for more than 2 weeks. Which meant having a giangantic dumpster full of trash in our driveway and an awful looking garden for weeks. Forget about the deck. Another disaster! After all these troubles, they fixed all what we addressed (except the insulation) and it looks eventually fine. But what a long long journey through hell, having to watch absolutely everything that was done around the house (and thanks God we did!), having to bother family, neighbors and attorney for advice trying not to be screwed up more than what we already were. If you are looking for nightmares, fights with your spouse because of the super high level of stress and lots of tears, go for Home Geeks USA. If you aren't full time home with enough energy to discuss every single detail that it isn't taken care of properly, forget about this comapny! If you are not ready for your own contractor horror story or already had enough, honestly, for your own sanity, walk away! I cannot believe a single positive review about this company published on the Internet is true. Oh and by the way, only subcontractors, no in house as they pretend. One the first lies of a long long list! And while we didn't even do the final walk through they harassed my husband at work to get the final payment. What a shame! Run away from this awful company"

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.
