Metal Roofing — Tough Enough For Oklahoma

Residential Roofing

A new roof will increase your home’s value, but you may not get a 100% ROI. Return rates average 60-70%. Few home renovation projects fully recoup costs, so even this percentage is outstanding.

The best shingle is the one that fits in your budget and looks the best on your home.

Roofing contractors in Oklahoma need a Roofing Contractor Registration but no state licensing. Proof of workers’ compensation and liability insurance is required to register and receive an Oklahoma roofing license.

Past it’s life expectancy.

Roof shingles are limited to one layer of shingles since two or more would increase the weight and wear out the roof faster. Do not re-roof until you are convinced the structure can support a new type of roof covering.

New shingles cannot be installed over existing ones in most regions, requiring roofers to remove everything down to the underlayment. This often costs $1–$5 per square foot and is the most difficult and expensive aspect of the job.

Studies reveal homebuyers care about roof color. Over 90% of respondents thought a roof color that matched the exterior added value. Roofs with high resale value are typically neutral-colored, such as tan, brown, black, or gray. Both light and dark-colored shingles can last longer with proper upkeep. Only one thing is confirmed concerning light-colored shingles: they keep indoor temperatures cooler in summer.

Oklahoma does not require ice/water shield protection unless shingle manufacturers specify it. A good ice and water barrier should cost $300, or $4.72 per square foot. Installation costs normally range from $265 to $280, depending on location

Architectural Shingles

Architectural or dimensional shingles, constructed of numerous layers, are found on most Oklahoma homes. They are the most cost-effective option for many Oklahoma roofing applications since they are stronger and wind-rated higher than three-tab.

Metal Roof

Metal roofs are hail resistant and last longer. The cost of installing a new metal roof in Oklahoma varies from $6,200 to $33,600, depending on roof size and metal type. Metal roofing installation costs $6.20–$9.60 per square foot. Installing metal roofing requires specialist knowledge and is more costly.

TPO Roof

TPO roofing will keep a bedroom cooler if you have a flat roof or low-slope dormer. TPO is utilized on flat roofs in malls, shopping centers, warehouses, and large office buildings. Metal roofs are hail resistant and last longer.
