Metal Roof Cost

The advantages of metal roofing allow homeowners to invest in their homes with products that will last a lifetime. Erie Metal Roofs offers a variety of different architectural roofing styles for your home. No matter which style you choose for your roof, you can rest easy knowing it’s trustworthy and installed by an experienced and certified roofer.

While the initial investment of a metal roof is more expensive than that of its traditional asphalt counterparts, the reduced maintenance costs and longevity of the roofing system more than offset the higher upfront expense in the long run. Metal roofing systems are coated with reflective pigment to help reduce cooling bills, and many are coated with zinc or a zinc-aluminum mixture to prevent rust from forming on the surface. Metal roofing systems are also much more durable than asphalt shingles, capable of withstanding high winds and impact from debris; many are rated for winds of 150 mph or more.

“They did a great job from start to finish. They were kind, courteous, knowledgeable, they answered my questions, and kept us up to date. I was disappointed with other companies that we used before but Erie Construction was quick and it was done right the first time.”
