Why put a metal roof on, instead of shingles? Shingle roofing costs have doubled every 10-12 years. Historical and projected costs for a 30 square shingle roof
- $940 in 1976
- $2000 in 1991
- $7200 in 2008
- $15,000 in 2023
- $34,000 in 2038
A 30 square metal roof with Mar Rib (Key West) style metal would cost approximately $12,000. Then you have peace of mind and no putting away for the next roof (sorry, you’ll be dead).
Metal roofs are energy efficient. They reflect the sun and lower your energy bills.
It improves the value of your home 6%-9%
A metal roof qualifies under Florida Wind Mitigation for an insurance discount (each insurance company gives a different discount so check with your insurance company for more information).
It’s time to look at longevity. When we retire, do we need to, or can we afford to, put another roof on our home? Where are we going to get the money for the roof? I’m sorry, but it’s true – we have to look after ourselves. If you are 40 years old today and you put on a shingle roof and continue to put on shingle roofs until you’re 70 years old, that one should last until you’re 85 years old. These roofs will cost you approximately $57,000. Now that is an outlay of $57,000 in 30 years. In other words, you have to save over $1900 per year to pay for your roofs. If you put on a metal roof today for approximately $12,000, that’s it! You now have a roof that will last. No more putting money away for a new roof. Just think of what you could do with the extra $45,000 during your retirement! OR an extra $1900 per year for holidays, vacations, etc. Wouldn’t that be nice?
