Metal Roof Costs- Wisconsin Metal Roofs
What Should a Metal Roof Cost?
Of course costs of metal roofs will vary according to many factors. The fact that metal roofs are permanent roofs, as opposed to other products like asphalt that may only carry a ten year warranty, will often make a metal roof a little bit more expensive than other products. However, because metal roofs are one of the best home improvement and construction decisions you can make in Wisconsin, they carry much greater resale value should you decide to move.
Many considerations come into the price for metal roofing that you may not realize. Product quality, installation, the location of your property, the contractor you choose, the size and slope of your roof all affect metal roof costs. Other factors include the complexity of your roof including shape and sections, cut-outs, flashing, and your underlayment and decking.

Metal Roofs are Permanent Roofs
Welcome to the “world of permanent roofing”. As Yoda the Jedi might say, “leave the dark side of temporary roofs you must”. Permanent roofs are those which never need to be replaced. Many other products will last 10 - 20 years, but eventually those years will roll by, and you’ll be paying multiple times the original cost to replace it. In that sense, a permanent roof is always going to be your lowest cost option compared to just about any other option. Properly installed metal roofs never need to be replaced or even repaired. Permanent metal roofs continue to look good decade after decade. While lasting for decades, perhaps even centuries, a permanent roof will save energy costs, may be eligible for tax credits, and bring an instant value increase to your home beyond almost all other home improvements.
According to Remodeling Magazine’s annual Cost vs Value Report (2019), metal roofs bring an instant increase to a home’s value of 60% of the job, plus because it is a permanent solution, the value of the return increases every year as project costs for other materials increase.
Imagine you are considering a house purchase, and you are looking at two very similar homes, both of which replaced their roof 15 years ago. One house has a Wisconsin Metal Roof with a shake profile, and the other that replaced their roof with a standard quality asphalt shingle. Both looked great on the day they were installed, but now the asphalt shingle has running black streaks as the fillers attach algae colonies, some of the shingles are bent and wind blown, and the home inspector sees signs of leaking in the asphalt shingle house. The permanent metal roof house looks as great today as the day installed, has no leaks, no curls, no missing shingles, no bends or warps. What would you choose? You can ask the asphalt roof homeowner for a substantial discount because you know you need to replace that roof, or you can confidently place an offer on the permanent roof because you know you will never have to replace it. When you decide to move 30 years in the future, won’t your potential buyers consider the same factors when considering your home versus several others in the area? What do you think they will choose?
Metal Roofs Reduce Cost of Ownership
Wisconsin metal roofs can also cut your costs every day and every month. Metal roofs are known to be more energy efficient in heating and cooling than other materials. They will not make your home hotter, since they are designed to carry heat through under the panel and up and out through the ridge vent,making them one of the most energy efficient roofs a homeowner can buy. Additionally, many insurance companies will give substantial discounts on your homeowners insurance premiums due to fire and hail damage resistance. Reduced weight and long life means less cost due to water damage to infrastructure that other materials simply can’t provide. The permanent roofing components mean your deck, underlayment, and roofing supports are also protected permanently for the lowest overall cost for the life of your home.
