Why Should You Choose A Metal Roof?

Are you considering a Metal Roof, but wondering about the benefits for your home?  Here are some key things to consider.

1. Long-Lasting


Among all benefits of metal roofing, its lifespan is always listed as the top benefit.  Compared to traditional asphalt shingles, metal is far more durable and long-lasting.

When properly installed and maintained, a normal metal roof can last 50 years.
If you opt for higher-end metal roofs, such as field-locked standing seam and aluminum shingles, it could last over 50 years.
2. Energy Efficiency


If you are looking to cut some expenses from your monthly expenditures, installing a metal roof might be helpful. Homes that have metal roofs can save up to 30% per month on cooling costs.

  • ReflectivityReflectivity means how well the roof reflects back the sun’s rays.

Metal roofs are great at reflecting back the sun’s UV rays. When your roof reflects back the sun, it decreases the amount of heat transferred into the attic. The less heat in the attic, the lower your electricity bill will be.

  • Emissivity: Emissivity means how quickly a product cools off after the heat is removed.

With energy-efficient metal roofs, your roof will be cool to the touch after the sun goes down, allowing your AC unit to take a much-needed breather resulting in lower cooling costs.

3. Good for All Seasons and Climates


The ability to sustain any kind of climate and season is one of the best benefits of metal roofing.


It can be prioritized in areas where winter storms often occur, as it allows snow and ice to slide off more easily.  It’s also perfect for hot, humid climates since it resists moisture and reflects heat.


Another benefit of metal roofing is they are rust-resistant and waterproof. The solid metal surface also resists moss and fungus.
