Full Answer

While the average cost falls between $4 and $6.5, the homeowner can expect to pay anywhere from $3 to $15 or even more per square foot. Included in the average cost is a new plywood sheathing, and removal and disposal of pre-existing roofing. The current insulation would also have to be replaced, but there are some forms of metal roofing that provide a pre-assembled insulated layer, which may be a better option for some homeowners. It is always wise for the homeowner to shop around with multiple, reputable contractors for best pricing and quality.
