Common Metal Roof Myth
The cost to buy a metal roof today is sometimes expressed as two to three times the price of a shingle roof. This old school rule of thumb is very misleading because it contrasts the cheapest shingle roof with the most expensive metal roof and ignores many important factors.
Metal Roof Price Compared to Shingles
There are a lot of misconceptions about the pricing of metal roofs and how they can pay off in the long run. If you’re looking to stay in your home for an extended period of time, keep the following items in mind when considering metal or shingles.
How long will it last?
Durability and Lifespan
- Shingle roofs will have to be completely replaced in 12 to 15 years at an even higher price as roofing rates are increasing every year.
Will it save you money elsewhere?
Insurance & Homeowner Costs
- Shingle roofs often fail during hurricanes, so there’s a chance that your hurricane deductible will be higher from your insurance if you choose shingle.
Will it help you sell your home?
Overall Home Value
- Shingle roofs don’t affect the overall value of your home nearly as much as metal roofs due to their short lifespans. The new homeowner will have to buy another roof soon.

Finding the Right Price
There’s a wide range of prices for roofs, with quality shingles reaching up into the price range of metal roofs. However, these more expensive shingles still don’t match the benefits of a metal roof. So, it’s best to find a metal roof right in the sweet spot. Get all of the benefits of a metal roof at the same price point as a shingle roof.
