My first time to post a question.
Have been trying to find someone to put a new porch
covering in my backyard.
Dont want anything fancy...just a plain metal roof.
Had an estimate for a plain metal roof with gutter and backspash: $1200.00
Had another estimate from a carpentar who wanted to put a dark wood overhang:$2000.00
What is the average price for a plain metal porch covering.
I have been having a really hard time finding someone to come out and give me an estimate. Most people try and get my to purchase elaborate decks and sunrooms.
What is up with this?
I need some help from anyone who knows the average cost of an simple metal porch covering.

are you talking about the roof only? or are you asking about framing up a roof and then putting metal on it?

Metal roofs vary in price......depends on material costs and how much per square the roofer wants to charge...

I charge only $80 per square including metal and screws for pitches under 6:12..........that's pretty cheap.

Lightbulb porch covering

Thanx Carpenter for replying to my question.
The covering would be a simple; attatched to the house with two posts on the opposite side, holding it up.
It would not be enclosed.......nothing fancy just some shade over the porch.
The size is 10x14. I did not ask him how much it would cost per square ft.
Is is possible to get a simple porch covering for under $1000?
I just want to be sure I am not being overpriced. I desire a fair price.
Thanx again,
