A rural, log cabin style home with a tin roof.

When you’re investigating home improvements, we know that a major determining factor is cost. Metal roofs have a huge number of benefits. Upfront, a metal roof tends to cost about 25% more than asphalt shingles. Over the roof’s lifetime, however, a metal roof is more economical. Most customers find that they spend less on maintenance or repair with a metal roof, and that the roof lasts for many years longer than asphalt.

If you’re interested in a metal roof, or any other kind of roofing material, for your home, we would always advise calling us for a free estimate. But if you’re wondering how much does a roof cost in Tallahassee, here are the factors that come into play when determining cost:

Quality of Paint Finish: Metal roofing is all about the finish of its surface; there are low end finishes that aren’t warrantied, and will eventually need to be repainted, and others that have a lifetime warranty and shouldn’t ever need paint maintenance. Which one you choose will influence your price.

Labor Requirements: How big is your home? The more square feet you’re covering, logically, the more you’re going to pay. If you have a complex roof, with many dormers, skylights, angles, sidewalls, or chimneys, that will increase the price.

Base Material: Metal roofing can be made from many different materials, from steel and aluminum to copper. Each material has its own price tag.

So overall, how much is it going to cost you to put a new roof on your home in Tallahassee? For a 2000 square foot home, the cost generally ranges from $8000 to $20,000. Shingles are on the lower end of that range, and metal roofs are the higher.
