Copper Roof Pricing

Copper prices are somewhat volatile, as copper is an internationally traded commodity in high demand. With that in mind and generally speaking, you’ll find copper roofing material prices in the range of $8-12 per square foot in the most commonly used gauges and profiles.

When preparing your budget, remember to add delivery costs, trims and accessories, and a percentage for waste (typically 10-20%).

Labor Rates for Copper Roofing

Labor to install copper roofing materials should be comparable to installing most other types of metal roofing choices, provided all other variables are the same.

Typically, the installed cost of a copper roof will end up in the $15-30 per square foot range. That's quite a wide variation, which accounts for all of the many differences between roof types and configurations, as well as local installation requirements and labor costs.
