metal roofing - general cost questions

Anyone compare the cost of replacing shingles vs metal roofing?
(how much more for metal vs. shingle) What's an average cost of metal roofing. I think I saw jack say about 150 square? My roof should be easy. two sides no eves or valleys - have two skylights to be replaced (adding two more on same side, and have one sky light on other

basically
roof 1

31 x 17 one skylight - may add one more

roof 2

34x28 two sky lights adding two more

The cost of your roof depends on the size of the roof, which you did not give us. Also, the more things on your roof, like stand pipes, vents, skylights add to the labor cost because each one has to be handles separetly.

It will take about 16 square so if it were asphalt it should be around $2400. Metal would be around $3000 to $3300. Bear in mind these are estimates, since I cannot actually see your roof. There may be other items that will raise your price. I would suggest that you put on all new gutters also. Good Luck
