Have you heard all the buzz about metal roofing for homes around Minneapolis recently?  It's quickly becoming very popular in communities like White Bear Lake, Mendota Heights, and Eagan.  

When it comes to metal roofing, so many homeowners think it is going to be extremely expensive to do. Not only that, but they wonder if benefits that come with metal roofing might be worth the cost. Generally, metal roofing costs more than traditional roofing materials like asphalt.  But the benefits of metal roofing offset the price that you pay initially for installation.

While the price of a metal roof depends on many different factors, it is important to note that there is a general guideline you can follow to get a good ballpark estimate of the roofing that needs to be done on your home, big or small.

  • Inexpensive metal roofing usually costs around $2 per square foot to put on a home.
This means that if your home is around 1,000 square feet, then you can expect to pay around $2,000 for materials to roof the entire home. However, this is just the low end.  Metal roofing can go up to $10 per square foot, depending on the type you choose as well as options like finish.

Not only that, but the size, shape and slope of the roof can also affect the price that you pay at the end. The best way to go about finding out the price of a metal roof to be placed on your home is to speak with the metal roofing company themselves. You want to know how much they’d charge you to cover your home, and you should be able to get a price quote at no cost.
