How much does a metal roofing cost?

Roofing is expensive, and that’s just for a regular roof

But it’s true, metal roofing is going to be more expensive and generally speaking will be 2-3 times more expensive than an asphalt roof.


Well, first of all, using metal as your base material for one is going to cost more. 

Secondly, Interlock® roofs are made of aluminum, (which we feel has advantages over steel roofing) and as a base metal, it’s more expensive than steel. 

Overall, if the price is an issue for you and you need to stick to a lower budget fix for your roof, we understand. 


Those who have taken the time to do their research find that Interlock® roofs prove to be more than worth the extra cost.
