The Cost for a Metal Roof in Fernandina with a 26 gauge Maxi-Rib screw down panel.
Screw-down metal roof, also called an agricultural roof, maxi-rib, or multi-rib metal roofing. This metal roof was originally for agricultural use such as barns and warehouses.
A screw-down roof is much easier to install, so it requires less labor. The materials are also less expensive than the standing seam metal roof. You get the look of a traditional metal roof without the upfront investment. The main difference is you will have exposed fasteners and these exposed fasteners will require maintenance typically around 5 to 10 years after being installed.
For a screw-down metal roof on a home in Fernandina Beach with 2 straight sides and no chimneys, skylights, or valleys the average cost is $16,500.
For a screw-down metal roof on a more complex home in Fernandina Beach with 2 stories, with a couple of valleys, dormers and walls, the average cost is $22,750.

Again, less upfront investment because the materials and labor required to install this roof are slightly less expensive than the standing seam metal. Due to the expansion and contraction and exposed fasteners, you can expect to do some maintenance to the exposed screws between the 5 to 10-year range.
