How to help homeowners factor the estimated cost of a new construction metal roof into your planning budget. 

So, you are working on a new construction project and your client has chosen a metal roof — great choice! Make sure the homeowner knows a metal roof easily pays itself off by lowering energy costs and providing decades of low-maintenance protection. That being said, the initial cost can be overwhelming in the planning process. Helping homeowners understand the cost of their metal roof depends on where they are in the process. Here is some helpful guidance to share with your clients as they budget for their roof:

Early planning phase – If they are just starting to pull some numbers together for their dream home project, suggest the following rule-of-thumb when estimating the cost: Estimate 3 to 4 times the cost of a quality installed asphalt roof – and we suggest estimating on the high side. Yes, it sounds expensive, but in the long run, an American Metal Roof will be far less expensive than replacing your asphalt roof every 10 years. It’ll be a lot prettier too! 

Blueprint phase – So, the homeowner has a set of plans for the project – awesome! One question: are they the final, final, final plans? Make sure to ask because plans change often in this phase, and even small changes in the total roofing area can have a big effect on the final cost of your new construction metal roof installation. To get the most accurate estimate, ask the homeowner to figure out the number of squares for their roof. When their plans are final, we recommend that you direct them to search for online resources and help them calculate their total roof area from your blueprints. 

Building phase – Ground is broken. If the homeowner has selected metal for their new home the steps outlined above will have given them a rough idea of the cost. In this phase you should be able to provide an exact estimate on your roof.
