Featured Review

"RoofCrafters sales representative Will quickly responded to my request for quote for a standing seam metal roof and gutters for a new construction project. Will met with me to review the drawings, the job site, my questions and expectations and to go over options for materials. This included him showing me samples and explaining how they perform . He followed up that initial visit with a detailed 16 point formal written quote with explanatory notes explaining material options, construction techniques, insurance coverage, prices, and time frame. I had no doubt as to what I was buying. After receiving my signed contract he kept in close contact to advise me on when the job would start, and continued close contact during the job. The installation crew was professional, skilled, well prepared, and good to work with. RoofCrafters quality control rep did a final inspection, the crew completed final punch list items, and picked up the job site. Will made a final visit to go over the job. I am well pleased with with the first class workmanship and material that is this new roof. Note that RoofCrafters was not the low bid. The were however well worth the price. "

"Chad Hart, the owner of C&K, repaired some leaky flashing installed by others a few years ago. When I asked him for the bill, he suggested we wait until a hard rain storm occurs, check the attic for the known leaking spots, and let him know if they are dry. THEN he will collect payment. And if his repair leaks, he will make it right. I consider C&K to be a dedicated professional. WILL DEFINITELY HIRE the company for roofing issues in the future."

Ideas & Inspiration from Austin Roofing Contractors

Austin Metal Roofs

If you live in Austin and it's time to replace your roof, you'd do wise to choose a metal roof. If you've looked into metal roofs at all, you probably already know some of the advantages: durability, fire resistance, ease of installation, energy-efficiency, and cost-effectiveness. As great as metal roofs are, they are even more compelling reasons for installing a metal roof in Austin.

Metal Roofs: Austin, TX
One of the biggest complaints about metal roofing is the harsh look. While this might be true in many traditional, suburban neighborhoods, the motto decried on our T-shirts and bumper stickers says it all. Even if our weirdness is being tainted by commodity, we don't necessarily like the traditional or ordinary. If there's one place in the United States, that's going to value modern building materials and their advantages over what a home is supposed to look like, it's here. Plus, if you simply can't past the look of metal, you can always have your metal roof painted in any color you want.

Now, think about this, in a 2006 ranking of top green cities in the US, Austin ranked number two and was the only city in the top ten with a population over 600,000. We're not going to keep this ranking by shying away from new construction technology. Austin is going to continue to grow, but we're going to grow vertically. Look into downtown and you can see the new skyscrapers being built. When it comes time to build your home or replace your roof, installing a metal roof is going to reflect the building and cultural values of our city more than any other roofing material.

Costs and Project Duration of Installing a Metal Roof in Austin
The national average for installing or replacing a metal roof is right around $5,500. Surprisingly, when compared to the average cost of asphalt shingle roofing, they are comparable. If you've looked into roofing materials at all, you probably know that metal roofing is supposed to be significantly more expensive. The difference is that you don't see a lot of big, ranch homes installing metal roofs. Smaller or more vertical homes are more common places to see metal roofs, accounting for the overall similarity in costs. To get a better idea of how much your exact roof will cost, start by figuring $4.50 per square foot. Depending on the style of your roof, the gauge and type of metal you choose, and the roofing system, your metal roof may be a little less or a little more per square foot.

The average time to install/replace a metal roof is just shy of two weeks. This time interval includes the time it takes to decide on a metal roofing material, schedule a time the contractor has free to complete the installation, and then have the roof installed. Whatever your timeline demands are, you should be able to find someone out there to get your project started. Just be sure to get on the same page with your roofing contractor to avoid unexpected problems. Many metal roofs are installed as part of new home construction or when a homeowner initially purchases a home, where the time to install a roof may not be under the same time demands as replacing a roof in a home where a family already lives.

Austin Metal Roofs: Total Costs and Home Investment
Despite the initial costs, metal roofs are amongst the most cost-effective roofing installations available. How's that, you ask? Simply, there is no roofing option that requires less maintenance and upkeep. Even natural slate roofing, which might last close to a century in some cases, will start to need persistent maintenance with tile replacement before too long.

Just to sweeten the deal, the Texas Department of Insurance gives significant insurance discounts for policy holders who have metal roofs. You should talk to your insurance company about your potential savings. This discount also shows the unparalleled durability of metal roofs. Insurance companies give these discounts because they understand just how unlikely your roof
