Metal roofs can be expensive. And, while you may think you have the budget for it, the price for a metal roof depends on a lot of factors. Yet, the benefits of this roof often outweigh the costs.
It also helps to be aware of the two major factors that affect the price, including:
1. How It’s Installed
This is actually one of the most important factors that can make or break your decision of having a metal roof installed. You shouldn’t choose just any available roofer as an improperly installed metal roof will create issues down the road. Whether it’s an “entry level” or an “investment grade” metal roof, never skimp nor cut corners with such an installation.
When choosing an installer, it’s important to remember that, if you’re talking to one who can’t provide specific details on how the roof will be installed – including smaller components like the eaves, electrical conduits, flashings, valleys and ridges – it may be better to look for another one.
2. The Warranty
As soon as you purchase your metal roof, you’ll receive two warranties: one from the manufacturer or supplier that covers the product and the other from the contractor to cover the installation. You’ll need to receive both in writing first before you make a decision.
Although you’ll find that “investment grade” metal roofs may have more comprehensive warranties, there are still other things you’ll find in this type of warranty, such as transferability, maximum length of coverage, hail warranty, wind warranty, fade and chalk warranty, and exclusions.
