The cost to roof a home in Augusta, Ga with a 26 gauge Maxi-Rib screw-down metal roof

 

A screw-down metal roof, also called an agricultural roof, Maxi-rib, or Multi-rib metal roofing. This metal roof was originally designed and created for agricultural use such as on barns and warehouses. 

 

A screw-down roof is much easier to install, so it requires less labor. The materials are 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 which will require maintenance typically around 5 to 10 years.

Again, less upfront investment because the materials and labor required to install the roof are slightly less expensive than the standing seam metal. You can expect some maintenance with the exposed screws around 5 to 10 years after it is installed.
