Stainless Steel Roof Costs

Stainless steel roof costs range from $6 to $12 per square foot, depending on whether you use shingles or panels. Stainless steel roofs are expensive, but are very durable, long lasting, energy efficient and offer homeowners lots of options for finish, color, design and style.

Stainless Steel Shingles

Shingles are the least expensive option and will be either galvanized or corrugated (more expensive). The material will run homeowners anywhere from $250 to $350 per square for stainless steel shingles. The actual price will certainly depend on which option you go with type of steel, along with the grade of steel, the gauge, coating finishes, size of the shingles etc.

Stainless Steel Standing Seam Panels

Stainless steel standing seam panels with trim are the more expensive option, offering excellent protection from water and moisture. The material alone will cost somewhere from $450 to $600 per square for the materials alone. Panel pricing will depend on the grade (tern coated, stone coated, silcone coated, etc.), the guage, color, availability, etc.

Installation Pricing

These roofs are more expensive to install as they require greater skill and experience from the contractor. In addition, the measuring must be very exact to insure proper installation. Installation pricing will depend on a number of additional factors such as size of project, pitch of the roof, installation pattern, complexity of tear off, etc.
