How Much Does a Metal Roof Cost?
If you’ve ever looked into replacing your roof with a metal or steel roofing system, one of your very first questions was likely “How much does a metal roof cost?” The cost of a Hy-Grade Steel Roof is typically 2-3 times the cost of an asphalt roof. Of course this can vary given the requirements of your specific roof.
A common misconception is that a metal roof costs more than other roof replacement options. This isn’t the whole truth. A metal roof does cost more up-front than an asphalt roof, but overtime, it actually costs less. Besides the longevity of the roof and never needing to replace it again, a metal roof can also save you money in other areas. Our customers are often pleasantly surprised to learn that they may receive a discount on their home insurance premium with a metal roof. With proper ventilation and insulation, a Hy-Grade Steel Roof can also save you money on your energy bills when heating and cooling your home.
Free up the money you will spend on future roof replacements by investing, once and for all, in a Hy-Grade Steel Roofing System. Your investment on the second, third, fourth, etc. roofs can be better spent on other home improvements, vehicle costs, vacations, a pool, and so much more!
There are many variables that go into a metal roof cost. It’s important to do your research on exactly what you’re getting for the purchase price. A Hy-Grade Steel Roofing System is a double-strapped, shake-style, steel roofing system. It comes complete with a 50 Year Warranty from a reliable Canadian company that’s been in business for over 32 years.
Here is a chart that illustrates the difference in cost of a Hy-Grade Steel Roof versus asphalt roof replacements over time:
Where does your investment in a Hy-Grade Steel Roof go?
✔ High-Quality Roofing Materials
We make a 50 year promise to you, that this will be the last roof you ever purchase. In order to keep this promise, we’ve spent years developing and engineering the top quality product, at an affordable cost. We’ve never cut corners on quality, and since we’re here for the long haul, we never will.
✔ Labour-Intensive Installation
A metal roofing system takes more time to install than an asphalt roof. So much of your Hy-Grade Steel Roofing System is under the shakes and not visible when complete. Each piece however plays an important role in shedding water and protecting your home from the elements. We take extra care to ensure the completed system will function as intended for a minimum 50 years.
✔ Skilled Installers and Support Staff
With a more labour-intensive installation, you need skilled roofers and support staff to ensure proper installation and maintenance. Our installers all go through a rigorous training and certification process to become “Certified Hy-Grade Installers.” We also have dedicated in-house and on-site trainers to ensure our installers are always up-to-date on best practices and proper installation tactics.
✔ Dedicated Service and Quality Control Department
We run a separate quality control inspection (not by the installation crew) on every completed Hy-Grade Roof. This is how we ensure the roof has passed our HY-standards and we can be confident providing a Lifetime Workmanship and 50 Year Warranty. We also have a Service Department for any after-sales support our 16,000+ customers may need. Adding an addition or vent? Removing a chimney? Our Service Team is ready to help!
✔ A Brick-and-Mortar Head Office and Manufacturing Facility
Hy-Grade has been in business for over 30 years, and we plan on being in business indefinitely. We believe strongly that in order for your warranty to be valuable, we need to be readily available if you need us. Both our Head Office and Showroom are open to the public, and the addresses are publicly displayed. You know where to find us if you need us.
We don’t just sell a roof replacement. We manufacture, sell and install a permanent steel roofing system complete with a Lifetime Workmanship and 50 Year Warranty.
Since it’s a custom system, and no two roofs are the same, the price for similar sized homes can vary. Some factors that go into the cost, other than size, include number/length of custom pieces (valleys, hips, ridge, etc.), how much waste (how “cut-up” the roof is), roof access issues, number of labour hours needed for installation, and more. Your complete quote from Hy-Grade Steel Roofing considers everything needed to manufacture, install, and warranty a permanent roofing solution. It’s the final price you’ll ever have to pay for roof replacement.
