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.

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
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
