Metal Roof Shingles Cost
Summary: Metal roof shingles have the beauty of traditional shingles but have the strength and durability of steel. Houses with metal roofs have great curb appeal.
Carl, I'm planning on building and am considering metal shingles from Edco.
I can't find anyone in my area that has used these shingles.
Do you have any experience with them? I was informed that they would require about twice as long to install.
Any information would be helpful.
Yes, metal shingles take longer to install than asphalt shingles.
There is more labor involved installing any metal roof and even more labor with metal roof shingles.
How much longer, depends on the roof pitch, style of roof, number of valleys, dormers, skylights, etc., and how large a crew and how experienced they are.
For readers who are unfamiliar with Edco metal shingles,according to Edco:
Edco’s ArrowLine Metal Shake Roofing has a unique 4-way interlocking system that withstands winds up to 160 mph and has the best hail rating available.

Edco’s ArrowLine Metal Shake Roofing may qualify for lower insurance rates.
Mike, there is a metal roof cost calculator on my Metal Roofing page. Check it out and see if helps.
Keep in mind that any calculator will only give you a rough (ballpark) estimate.
Always use a professional roofer and get several bids and references. And, check those references!
Be sure that any roofing contractor you hire has Subcontractor Insurance.
It's a dangerous job.
Good luck, Carl Heldmann
