Steel Roofing


We mainly do architectural shingles, epdm, tpo and some stone coated steel. I have been getting quite a bit of pole barn steel request but don't know how to price it for a smaller city in the midwest. Can someone push me in the right direction to as pricing it for quotes? thanks!

As you don't know what your time is worth or you don't know how to install the product?

I have guys that can do it but we use a xactimate software that has pricing on material but it seems very on the expensive side. So more a material pricing. Thanks

Re: Steel Roofing


Out right asking pricing here is not looked on very highly. Cost of material - you need to talk to your supplier and add your markup, only way you will know your cost. . Cost where you live and I live can be different.

I would send your material list with a note that says "Request for Pricing" to a few of your suppliers.

$130 a square for steel with exposed fastens and accessories should get you close on a normal house. Less on an easy gable roof. More on a cut up roof.

I normally like to allow a little more then that. But it is still right in the ball park.

I order steel through Menards. I think they are considerably less than from a lumber yard.

Re: Steel Roofing


We do quite a bit of metal roofs and try to stay away from asphalt. It's pretty common here on houses. When I bid em it usually isn't that much more than shingles because I drop the labor since they go so quick, with the exception of chopped up roofs. I'm usually around 150 square for material, covers titanium wrap, metal, trim, screws, em seal, and ridge closure. That's also based on tuf rib (local store) / delta rib, the standard stuff, corrugated and standing seam cost a lot more.
