Frequently Asked Questions
Is metal roofing much more expensive than other roofing?
The LCC (life cycle costing) of metal roofing compared to other roofing substrates is much less as you can see in the graphic below.
Looking at this chart, after 35 years every flat roof has been replaced numerous times costing you more money. NOT METAL. The initial investment stays the same or drops, considering salvage value. So your overall investment with metal is much less in the long run saving you a considerable amount of money and taking “roofing cost” off your budget for a long time to come.
I have a flat roof – is metal roofing even an option for me?
Yes it is! At Metal Roof Consultants, we specialize in “making a flat roof that leaks into a pitched roof that doesn’t”. As you can see in the video below, converting a flat roof to a pitched metal roof, can be done, it has been done, and it is likely being done as you are reading this page.
Is metal really that much better than traditional roofing?
Yes it really is. But don’t just take our word for it, look around your area, look at the next new commercial building or school going up. Are they using a flat roof? Is it foam? EPDM? Nope! It is most likely a pitched metal roof because they last longer. Commercial contractors and owners have realized that they are wasting money replacing their roofing every few years and have started using metal almost exclusively.

How long does it take to put on a metal roof?
This varies with each individual roof. Every roof is different and it is our goal to make sure this is the last roof you ever have to put on.
We inspect the roof, check the existing structure and can give you an estimate quickly on projected cost and schedule/time before we put your project out to bid.
MRC has experience not only the design, but also in the construction, so our expertise becomes very valuable when bidding a project and projecting the schedule.
