The costs of steel-reinforced concrete replacement for steel buildings and homes can be staggering, and they’re even more staggering for older buildings.
The average steel roof replacement costs about $3,000 to $6,000.
That means that an average steel-clad home can expect to pay more than $200,000 in steel costs.
So how much will it cost to replace your steel-framed home with a glass-reinsulated glass one?
That’s what this article aims to answer.
For the average home, we’ll assume the steel is used for the framing, and that the glass is installed in the living room, kitchen, and bathrooms.
The costs will vary depending on the size of the home, and the type of building, but the average cost for a steel framed home is roughly $5,000 for a small home and $6 and $7,000 respectively for a medium-sized home.
A glass-framing home that would be used for an average of 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms would cost an average price of $2,000 per square foot.
An average glass-frame home that is used in an average size of 4 rooms, 3 bathrooms would have a price tag of $1,500 per square feet.
That means the average price per square inch of glass-to, glass-based steel is $9,500, and if that same glass-faced home was placed in a new construction with the same roof, it would be up to $16,000 more expensive than it is today.
The cost of replacing the glass-and-steel home with glass-glass composite steel is even more prohibitive.
The new roofing that comes with a new steel roof costs about one-third as much as the glass roofing.
The glass-pine roofing costs $5.8 million, while the glass composite roofing is $12.5 million.
If a new roof comes with the glass and glass composite, it will cost an additional $6.3 million, leaving the new steel-based roof to be paid for at an additional cost of $4.6 million.
To put that in perspective, the average steel home today is expected to be around $300,000, and a new-build steel home that comes outfitted with a reinforced steel roof will likely cost more than twice as much.
In a nutshell, it’s the glass that costs the most, and replacing that glass with glass is only one part of the process.
The steel roofing, glass roof, and other components that are installed on the exterior of a building are all costly and often difficult to replace.
