How much does an aluminum roof cost

Estimate the cost of a tin roof

What are the sheet metal roof costs based on?

Metals have a variable market value, which is one reason why all price information can only be given as a guide. We would like to recommend that you buy a tin roof that has a high-quality coating so that it can withstand the weather for as long as possible.

Not only the material quality, which is closely related to the service life of a sheet metal roof, influences the costs, the aesthetic design of the product also plays a role in the price: Unusual structures and colors increase the sheet metal roof costs.

Concrete price information for better orientation

  • If you want a particularly inexpensive sheet metal roof, then you can buy galvanized sheet steel pans for a price starting at around EUR 20 per square meter.
  • Due to its long service life and its relatively low price compared to copper, titanium zinc sheet is popular: the cost is around 40 euros per square meter.
  • Anodized aluminum is available in many colors. The sheet metal roof costs for this material are usually between 25 and 30 euros per square meter.
  • You can buy galvanized sheet metal sheets with a width of 67 cm from a price of around 35 euros per square meter.
  • Tin roofs made of copper are particularly expensive, but of high quality. Count on around 100 EUR per square meter - and with a beautiful patina in a few years.

The sheet metal roof costs mentioned above include both the material and the price for installing the sheet metal - including VAT.

This additional work is part of the sheet metal roof costs

Various additional work and materials are not included in the above prices. This includes the battens or formwork of the roof, the verges, the drainage system and any roof windows.

Sample project: Costs for a 60 square meter sheet metal roof

A larger garden house is to have a high-quality tin roof made of copper. The sheet metal roof costs add up from the battens, the copper roof and the drainage system.

Cost overviewprice
Battens1,500 EUR
Copper roof6,000 EUR
Verges200 EUR
Drainage system370 EUR
total8,070 EUR

Pay attention to quality!

Bought cheaply can mean with a tin roof: rusted through quickly and in the garbage! Make sure that you receive a corrosion-resistant product and have it installed properly so that there is no structural damage!

Would you rather have roof tiles, but the roof pitch is too low for that? Sheet metal roofs with a tile look imitate tile roofs and thus offer a nice alternative!
