    Metal roof is the last roof you'll ever need!

    If you are a homeowner or planning to build a house soon, roofing is one of those essential things that you have to consider. Selecting the most appropriate roof type for your house can be quite frustrating especially when it’s your first time being involved in a construction project. Metal roofing is a great choice but do you have adequate information to guide you through to the completion of your project?

    Metal tiles are high quality products that will last you a lifetime. Their contemporary appearance makes them a great option if you want attractive and unique roofing. Metal roofs are highly resistant to harsh weather conditions and wear and tear. This is why you get a warranty of up to 50 years when you buy them.

    Metal roofing is a smart investment in various ways. For instance, your energy bills will significantly reduce. These roofing systems are energy efficient, so they keep the house cool even during the sweltering months.  Metal reflects sunlight, keeping temperatures lower when it’s hot outside.

    Metal roofing is generally pricier than asphalt shingles for various reasons. Metal roofs are more durable than asphalt roofs, last significantly longer and are practically maintenance-free. This means that they allow you to save on upkeep costs and prevent you from worrying about future roof replacements. The other thing that makes metal roofs more expensive is that they require highly skilled professionals to do the installation. Although metal roofing prices are about 2 to 3 times higher than asphalt shingles, they are a worthy investment.

    AMT Metal Roofing Reviews

    I highly recommend AMT. Tony was extremely fast in responding to my initial questions, coming out to do an estimate (and we live out of town) and the work started exactly when he said it would. The roofers were super friendly, hard working, and efficient and they finished the job faster than was originally estimated. The finished product is exactly what we hoped for and they left our property spotless when they left. You will not be disappointed hiring Tony and his team.

    Excellent service and communication. Tony and his team were amazing from start to finish. Turn around time was very quick too. We had three structures to do and they finished them all in five days. My husband and I are extremely happy with the finished result. We highly recommend this company.

    After carefully evaluating different options , we selected ATM to install a new metal roof and replaced the older cedar roof. We couldn't be happier with choice. Our new roof looks great in style and our house looks more beautiful. Tony, the manager is very knowledgeable and responsive to answer all of our questions. The installation went smoothly and ahead of the schedule. The entire installation team showed very high level of experience and great professionalism. They were very polite, organized and cleaned up thoroughly each day and after the final project. We are very happy with AMT's work and would recommend to anyone who need a durable and beautiful new roof !

    I was tired of dealing with shingles blowing off so I had made my mind up to go with metal. I contacted several roofing companies for estimates to repair my roof after wind damaged my asphalt roofing. We chose AMT because we liked their product and they were cost competitive. Metal roofing is not cheap but it is a long.... term solution. We will never have to re-roof or repair our roof for as long as we live. Tony was very professional and provided a clear estimate and explained the process well. The crew was respectful and cleaned up well after the project. I am very pleased. Thanks Tony and the whole gang. Well done

    Tony Brodeskur was such a great help educating us on our new metal roofing, the quality of AMT installers and the product, prices and warranty. From date of deposit to the date of install was incredibly fast. The AMT installers were extremely efficient, professional, courteous and organized. After completion, the crew cleaned up our yard, just like they were never there except I now have an amazing looking, high quality roof. I would refer AMT to anyone if they need a roof. Thank you Tony and the whole crew for your services.

    I own a 1950's home with an old style metal roof. It was a challenge to find a company that could/would install snow breakers in the Edmonton area. After getting a couple of quotes, I went with AMT and am thrilled with the service from start to finish. I spoke with Vlad early on a Monday morning, he did a site visit later that morning and then I received an electronic quote later that same day. The job was completed by Wednesday afternoon of that same week. Great work/service in an incredibly short period of time. I highly recommend AMT Roofing.

    AMR wasn't the cheapest company that I got quotes from, but I'm glad I trusted them for this project. Spend the extra money if you have to, you'll thank me.They spent 11 days at my house making it perfect and clearly went above and beyond on several items that were out of scope that they could have billed me for but just did it anyway. I couldn't be more pleased.Tony, the project manager/ estimator was super personable, extremely responsive and put me at ease with every concern I had.

    After getting several quotes for metal roofs I decided to go with AMT. These guys were impressive from the day they provided an estimate till the post-installation final inspection. Very reasonable pricing and superior product quality.

    These guys really deserve the 5 Star rating. The work is top notch, everyone I have dealt with has been extremely professional, and they are very honest with their pricing. Tony the sales guy was great to deal with answered all our questions and even got our eves-troughs done at the same time. I can't remember the name of the foreman that came to do the work but the entire crew was very well run. They cleaned up after themselves so well that if they didn't leaves signs and a new roof you wouldn't have even known they were there.

    Understanding Metal Roofing Prices

    Factors that determine the cost of a metal roof

    • Roofing material
    • Roof area
    • Roof structure and pitch
    • Existing roof removal
    • Labour and installation
    • Delivery
      Metal roofing prices Edmonton
      Size of roof

      Roofing material & Roof Area

      Generally, the larger your roof, the higher the cost.

      The estimated price per square foot for installing a metal roof in Edmonton depends on the metal roofing material, as well as the other factors listed above. Metal tiles roofing systems prices range between $9.00 and $12.00 per square foot and they come with a 50 year non-prorated warranty.

      Average residential roof size in Alberta

      The roof size of different types of homes in Alberta varies based on the house size and architectural design. If you have a larger home, expect to incur higher costs in getting a metal roof. The average size of a residential roof in Alberta ranges between 2,000 and 3,000 square feet. If you want to roughly estimate the total cost of metal roof installation, you can multiply the total roof size with an average price per square foot.

      Metal roofing structure

      Roof structure and pitch

      Some of the factors considered when determining the costs of metal roof installation are roof’s pitch, number of planes, dormers, valleys, chimneys and skylights.

      The structure of a roof determines whether it is difficult or easy to work on. If the roof is walkable, installation costs will be lower. Steeper roofs require special equipment, so the costs go up. If installers need to navigate around windows, dormers, and valleys, the cost will increase due to increased labor time.

      Old roof stripping

      Existing roof removal

      In addition to buying a metal roof, you will incur extra costs if you need your old roof removed and disposed of. Stripping old roofs increases labour time and effort. If you want to re-roof with a different lightweight product, stripping is not necessary. It is advisable to check the building code applicable in your area or to seek advice from a specialist.

      Labour and Installation

      Installation of metal roofs requires highly skilled professionals to do the job. It is more difficult and time consuming to install a metal roof than a regular asphalt shingles roof.

      Our metal roofing pricing includes:

      At AMT Metal Roofing, prices for installation of metal tiles in Edmonton range from $9 to $12 per square foot. Based on the average roof size in Edmonton, the average cost of metal roof installation ranges from $18,000 to $36,000. Metal roofing prices in Edmonton are determined by various factors such as material, wood strapping, underlayment, labour/installation and delivery. Our prices for metal roofing in Edmonton include the following items:

      Material: The material used plays a significant role in calculating the total cost of metal roof installation. At AMT Metal Roofing, we use metal tiles roofing systems for residential and commercial projects. We also use standing seam and metal panels for commercial and industrial properties. Contact us directly for commercial roofing Edmonton estimates.

      Wood strapping: Wood strapping involves the use of extra materials so the cost of installation will rise. Wood strapping is essential as it provides support and ventilation for metal roofs.

      Underlayment: Most people tend to overlook it, but using roof underlayment is an important added layer of protection to prevent water leakage. At AMT Metal Roofing, we always provide high-quality underlayment to ensure optimal protection.

      Labour + installation: AMT Metal Roofing is an established roofing company in Edmonton. Our prices include not only labour and installation, but also liability insurance, WCB, training programs, and project managers. We have highly knowledgeable and experienced professionals who will advise you on water management, insulation, and proper ventilation. The cost of metal roof depends on the complexity of the roof and size.

      Delivery: The delivery cost depends on the location. If the distance to be covered is extended, the delivery cost will also go up.

      When events that are out of your control hit your home or building, it’s stressful. Luckily, metal roofing is a solution for this stress. A hail storm that would have destroyed your shingle roof won’t even dent up your metal tiles, and fire resistant metal means you’re less likely to lose your home if your neighbour’s house goes up in flames.

      Maintaining a shingle roof can be exhausting. You don’t want to invest your time in the fix-ups and maintenance, but you have no choice. And if you don’t take the time, you’ll have to spend more money on replacement in a few years. All of these worries are completely removed with a metal roof. You’ll never have to break out the ladder and climb up to your roof again!

      People pay more for quality and reliability. The same is true when you add a metal roof to your house. Plus, AMT Metal Roofing warranties are fully transferable. That means when you sell your home or building, the roofing warranty transfers to the new owner. Buyers will feel more comfortable making a purchase decision when they know their investment is protected from the top, down.

      Insurance companies base their premiums on risk factors. Metal roofing lowers the risk to your home or building, which in turn lowers your insurance premiums. Always be sure to update your insurance company once the AMT Metal Roofing team has completed your new roof so you can enjoy great savings on your insurance for decades to come.

      AMT Metal Roofing’s products are environmentally friendly and sustainable. You won’t get shingles blowing away to become garbage in your yard and community, and you won’t have to head to the landfill with your old shingles. Our metal roofing is completely recyclable, and is made using recycled metal. We’re committed to making a positive impact on our world and helping our clients reduce their carbon footprints.

      While asphalt shingles draw in and store heat and cold, metal tiles expel heat and cold quickly. This means a more even temperature inside all year round, even in Alberta’s rapidly shifting weather. Of course, better insulation also means more money saved on heating and air conditioning! You’ll feel a big difference in your utility bills each month.

      Metal Roofing - AMT Roofing

      Mold is caused by water, and thanks to a watertight seal in your metal tiles, there won’t be water collecting under your roof. Plus, a ventilated air space between your roof and ceiling mean any moisture can evaporate easily. This means you won’t have to worry about mold breaking down your roof and ruining your home. Breathe easier and safer under a roof that won’t endanger your family or pets, and won’t cause damage.
