We had to fire our roofer who was putting in our metal roof. So we've taken over the project ourselves. Does anyone know ho much a standing seam metal roof cost if we're installing it ourselves? Or should we go ahead and bit the bullet and hire another contractor?

I don't know what you paid your other contractor you fired but a standing seam metal roof with the typical installation ranges from $13,600 to $20,400, or $17,000 on average. That includes your labor which averages out at about $3,400 to $10,200 for labor. In case you're wondering that about $5.00 to $26.00 per square foot. Unless you already know how to buy or install this stuff you need to bite the bullet and get another contractor to do it for you. description
In today's market standing seam metal roofing is the new go-to alternative to asphalt shingles. It's longlasting with durable protection, and has a ton of aesthetic options. All of them are semi-costly. If you re-hire a professional roofer, you're probably going to pay between $800 and $1,250 per square. But standing seam metal roofing usually requires specialized tools, so I'd hire a local roofer to install your new metal roof. most homeowners hire local roofers to install metal roofs. Its worth it at only about $400 and $600 per square ($4/sf to $6/sf) in labor to get it done. description
By far, one of the most expensive metal roofing styles, standing seam offers many benefits in exchange for its high initial cost. On average standing seam panels cost anywhere between 3 to 5 dollars per square foot for materials and another one thousand to fifteen hundred for installation. I don't know how big your house is but if you have 1700 square feet that about 17,000 to $24,000 installed. I don't know what you lost with the other contractors but don't try to do this yourself. description
Always use a contractor for this type of roof. There's no substitute for the professional look and expert installation you'll get. Any labor if you did decide to do it would include installing drip edge/extended eave trim, open valley flashing and ridge trim with a layout, fabricate, overlap and then securing the panels. Your work load, the actual end result would be intense because of the mistakes you'd make along the way. description
Standing seam is the high-class metal roof that you pay for because of its classy look due to its vertical metal panels running from the ridge of the roof all the way down to the eaves. It's the upturned edge of a metal panel connecting it to the adjacent panel that gives it the standing seam and there's no way you can do this yourself if you've never done a job like this before. On average you're going to pay $10.00 to $15.00 per square foot installed but it all depends how big your house is, how thick you want the metal, etc. description
