Roofing 101: Metal Roofs

When deciding on metal vs. asphalt roofing, a metal roof can cost more than asphalt shingles, however, if you consider the longevity, durability, and environmental benefits, that cost is negated in the long run. There has been a steady increase in the demand for metal roofing in recent years because customers don’t want to go through the hassle of having to replace their roofs in 7-15 years or deal with loosening or damaged shingles.

Here are a few reasons why you should consider metal roofs:
1. Metal roofs are energy efficient. Asphalt shingles normally absorb most of the incoming solar radiation, but metal roofing reflects it, reducing your home energy expenditures. According to the Metal Roofing Alliance, metal is one of the most energy efficient roofing materials available and can save your home up to 40% in air conditioning cost as well as provide excellent insulation during the winter. Many cool-metal roofing systems are also ENERGY STARⓇ certified and may qualify for tax incentives.
2. Solar energy panels can easily be installed on metal roofs, sometimes even with attachment solutions that do not penetrate the roof system.
3. Asphalt shingles have to be replaced and they end up in landfills. Most metal roofs consist of recycled metal and in the event the roof ever needs to come down, it can be recycled.
4. Metal roofs lasts 30-50 years or more, and increases the value of your home.
