Average Cost to Install Metal Roofs in Ontario
Metal roofs are an excellent option for homeowners because they last a long time compared to asphalt shingle roofs. They also come in many prefabricated roof profile styles and colors, as well as fully customized according to your aesthetic preferences for standing seam metal roofs. While the initial cost for installing steel metal roofs is higher than asphalt shingles, the investment pays off due to less frequent roof repairs or replacements and minimal maintenance.

Factors that Impact the Cost of Metal Roofs
When you are considering getting a metal roof for your home, there are many factors that will impact the price of installation. Different types of roof materials and the steepness of your roof are cost factors. The accessibility of your roof is also a factor - is it difficult to remove old materials from your roof or get equipment in and out of your property?
When pricing roof replacement projects, roofers would look at how complex and “cut-up” your roof might be as this will change the installation cost. Flat and regular shaped roofs will be at the priced at the lower range per square foot, while irregular shaped roofs or roofs that have a lot of slopes will require more labour and extra materials for the hips and valleys, resulting in a quote at the higher end of the range.
House with dormers will also increase the price of your metal roof installation. Roof dormers are structures that extend out from a roof. They offer an aesthetic and functional advantage to your home by adding more interior space to your house.
The number of dormers on a property will increase the complexity of the installation, leading to a higher cost for the metal roof installation.
Some homeowners will prefer the look of standing seam metal roofs than their profiled counterparts. For standing seam metal roofs, every aspect of the installation can be custom tailored to your preferences, including the corners and the boxes under the gutters. The amount of customization will impact the price of the installation.
It is worth nothing that different roofing materials can be mixed and matched to meet your budget and design preferences for your roof. For example, some homeowners may install profiled metal tiles on the one side of the roof that is more exposed to the elements and have asphalt shingles on the other side, or standing seam metal can be used in conjunction with profiled metal tiles for a more modern look while still offering longevity and low maintenance requirements.
