A metal roof cost is very comparable to a tile or cedar shake roof and is actually less expensive than a slate roof. However, due to the premium quality materials, a metal roof will be more expensive than a standard asphalt shingle roof.

So, while a metal roof might initially be a larger financial cost, this will quickly be viewed as an investment when you consider the minimal upkeep, your home’s improved resale value, energy efficiency, the 30-50yr warranty, and the peace of knowing that you will likely never have to worry about your roof again.
