Enter the total cost spent on the metal roofing and the total square footage of the roof into the calculator to determine the metal roofing cost per square foot.

## Metal Roofing Cost Per Square Foot Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Metal Roofing Cost Per Square Foot.

MRC = TC / TA
• Where MRC is the metal roofing cost per square foot ($/ft^2) • TC is the total cost ($)
• TA is the total area (ft^2)

To calculate the metal roofing cost per square foot, divide the total cost by the total area. The total cost should include labor and material costs.

## What is the Metal Roofing Cost Per Square Foot?

Definition:

Metal roofing cost varies greatly. You can expect to pay anywhere between $6.50 and$15.00 per square foot (or $650 to$1,500 per square) for steel shingle or standing seam panels, including installation.

A square is equivalent to 100 square feet of roof surface. Most residential steel roofs cost between $8,000 and$21,000 fully installed, depending on the size of the roof and the selected profile.

Steel shingle panels typically run $500 to$10000 per square, whereas standing seam panels typically cost about twice as much at around $900 to$2,0000 per square.

The average labor cost of installing a metal roof ranges from roughly $600 to$1,700 per square depending on local labor rates and the complexity of your roof.
