Here are just some of the advantages that metal roofs have over asphalt shingle roofs.
A metal roof will likely be the last roof you ever purchase. A quality metal roof will last for generations – three times or longer than an asphalt shingle roof.
On average, a quality metal roof increases the value of a home by $1.45 per square foot1. An asphalt shingle roof is often a liability when it’s time to sell.
Metal roofs offer a wide variety of profiles and unlimited colors to dramatically improve the curb appeal of any style home.
Virtually Maintenance Free
Metal roofs are easily maintained with simple washing of plain water or with household detergents for areas with heavy dirt deposits. Occasional light cleaning will maintain a good appearance.
Reduced Insurance Premiums
Unlike asphalt or wood shingles, a metal roof exposed to burning embers will not catch fire. Also, metal roofs fair better than shingles in high winds. These advantages can save up to 35% on insurance premiums.
Steel is the #1 recycled material in the world, and residential metal roofs are made from a minimum of 30% recycled steel. Asphalt shingles contain petroleum, are rarely ever recycled and are the largest contributor to landfill waste of any building material.
