How much will your roof REALLY cost?

metal-roofing-price-per-sheetHow much does installing a new roof cost? Take into account various costs like the metal roofing price per sheet or whether you are installing over an older roof. Let’s find out more about some of the key costs of installing a metal roof.

Metal Roof Pricing

The general cost of metal roofing has several key factors. The materials you choose will determine the cost, for example, the metal roofing price per sheet of galvanized. Take into account other pricing like labor and whether you need to remove an older roof. Metal roofs can often be placed on top of an older roof, saving considerably on costs.

Metal roofs can last for half a century or more, which means that this will most likely be the only roof that you will ever have to install. Compared to traditional asphalt roofing, metal roofing is relatively low maintenance and withstand harsh environments. While the cost of a metal roof can be around sixteen thousand dollars, taking into account the longevity and durability should be kept in mind.


Different types of metal roofing have different costs. There are also options like installing metal shakes, tiles, or shingles. Your roofing contractor can help you find the look and style that is right for your home. Copper roofing is the most luxurious of the options and is often reserved for accents or high-end homes. Most homeowners opt for options like aluminum or galvanized steel, which is the most affordable option.


What other costs do you need to consider? Check with your metal roofing contractor about the included warranty. The roof warranty is worth the extra costs in the long-term.

Finding a Roof Contractor

Ask for an estimate when you speak with your roofing contractor. Review their experience and see if you can speak to former customers. Look at their work on other homes. Check their certifications and license according to your region’s requirements. Don’t forget to review any building permits you might need. Call us today for an estimate for your roofing needs.

Home for the Holidays

Every child deserves a toy at Christmas!

During the Holiday Season your children and mine dream of all the toys they want to see under their Christmas tree. They writ to Santa, or they sit on his knee and tell him all their secret wishes for Christmas and usually they get everything they asked for and more!

However not all children are as lucky as ours and we need to remember these children as well, not only during the Christmas season but all year round. During the year many abused women and their children find shelter at the Women’s Community House, where they are assured a more secure environmental than they had at “home”. While the Community House provides support and care for these residents in various ways, due to budget just like anywhere else, they obviously are not able to make all the kids’ Christmas dreams come true when it comes to “Mommy, will Santa find us here?”

Another amazing and heartwarming guardian of those in need is the Salvation Army. Stalwart and forever reliable even the Salvation Army is feeling the pinch this year. Whit so many unemployed here in London their “Kettle” campaign wasn’t quite the success they had hoped for in order to make Christmas “happen” for so many of the children on their list. Now don’t get me wrong, these Londoners that are in need will have food for Christmas which is the most important thing, but there will just not be enough to answer all the wishes for the children and “every child deserves a toy at Christmas!”

Now the good news in all of this is, with the help and sponsorship of Joe Malec, owner of London Eco-Roof, The London Community News and London Eco-Roof are asking our readers’ to drop off a new, unwrapped toy appropriate for children ages 1-12 and we will make sure that they are evenly distributed to both the worthy associations above for “Santa’s sack” this Christmas. What’s one unwrapped toy mean to you? It’s that scarf you thought of buying but don’t really need it? One unwrapped toy will mean the world to a needy child who otherwise will think that they’ve done something wrong because Santa didn’t find them this year.  Joe Malec wants to make a difference and so we entreat you to help us make Every London child feel loved and happy this Christmas.

Thank you for caring and sharing! Thank you for making a difference!
