Home improvement projects can be stressful, especially if you don’t have a knack for the specific part of your home that needs improvement. I mean, besides contractors, of course, does anyone really sit around and talk about how much they love roofing?

 

I think not. In fact, I think it’s safe to say that the vast majority of us are terrified of being hassled by greasy roofing contractors and ultimately dishing out major cash for products we’re not even sure we needed in the first place. 

 

At RoofCrafters, your fear and apprehension resonate with us. We know just how sleazy some contractors can be in the business, which is why we’ve made it our priority to educate the Beaufort, South Carolina residence about roofing costs so that you can feel comfortable and confident when it comes time to make a decision.

 

All of that being said, our family here at RoofCrafters has been in the Beaufort, South Carolina area installing metal roofs for families just like yours, one roof at a time since 1993.

In this article, we’ll cover the 3 main factors that determine the cost of your metal roofing project. We’ll break down the most popular metal roofs used, and provide you with examples of the cost of metal roofs installed on homes in 2022.

 

So, let’s jump right in!

 

The 3 Main Factors Considered When Calculating the Cost of a Metal Roof in Beaufort

 

The cost of replacing your metal roof in Beaufort, SC varies depending on several factors. Here are the 3 main factors that are used to determine the price.  

 

  1. First, which type of metal roof material you choose.
  2. Second, the total square footage of the roof area that will be covered.
  3. And third, the complexity or difficulty of the total roof project itself, such as, how steep your roof is or the pitch of the roof, how high up or how many stories is your home and will your local roofing contractor in Beaufort SC be able to get their equipment close to your home.

 

 

It would be impossible for me to give you an exact price without knowing all the factors that determine the final cost, so I will provide you with the cost of a few typical homes with each of the different types of metal roof materials used on homes in 2022.

The Cost of a Metal Roof in Beaufort with a 26 Gauge Maxi-Rib Screw-Down Panel

 

A screw-down metal roof, also called an agricultural roof panel, maxi-rib metal roofing, 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. See Maxi-Rib color options here.

Again, less upfront investment because the materials and labor required to install this roof are slightly less expensive than the standing seam metal roofing.
