Find the Best Flat Roofing Contractor

Use a contractor for your flat roof installation and enjoy the efficient, cost-effective work of a professional. A licensed contractor should allow you to get the job done right the first time and save you repair costs in the long-run. Any contractor should be able to provide you with the following:


  • License number
  • Professional recommendations
  • Price ranges

Beyond that, get a feel for your contractor's expertise with flat roofing. What advice can he or she give you for a simple gravel roof installation? How much experience do they have with sheet metal roofing, tile roofing, and other types? The more questions your potential contractor can answer on the spot, the more experience he or she has with the specific type of roofing.

It's important to learn how long a contractor has worked in the area. Over time, it becomes easier to gather customer recommendations, plus you know that the contractor has worked with the range of weather conditions in your area and other local details. A contractor doesn't have to be a lifelong local to do a great job, but experience can work in their favor.

Sample Flat Roofing Prices

Installing a flat roof can be a costly endeavor if you upgrade beyond asphalt, tar, or gravel. The next level of flat roofing is metal flat panels, and while the final product is as durable as it is beautiful, you'll see an extra expense in your project.

For example, installing a panel of single steel flat roofing can cost anywhere between $800 to $1,100 per 100 sq. ft. in New England, depending on the difficulty of the job. For customized zinc roof tile, you can expect to pay $1,900 per 100 foot square and higher. Here are a few more sample prices:

  • Copper shingles (100 sq. ft.): $1,800
  • Custom fabricated copper panels: $2,100
  • Standing seam metal roof (100 sq. ft.): $1,000 to $1,300

The prices you find locally may vary from the ranges quoted above, which are from a contracting company in New England, and will likely be higher than rural areas in the rest of the country.
