If you are considering your options for roof replacement, you may have been weighing your options on roofing materials. While shingle roofs are certainly a great investment and typically cost less up front to install, there are some really good reasons to choose metal roofing for your home.
- Weather Resistant – While it may seem that shingle roofs are more durable in adverse weather, such as hail storms, than metal roofing, the truth is that metal roofs hold up very well in bad weather. Additionally, weather fluctuations can damage shingle roofing materials while metal roofing sees no ill effects.
- Temperature Control – Another misconception about metal roofing is that it isn’t a good insulator. This couldn’t be further from the truth! Metal roofing reflects heat in the summer months and will keep warm air in during the winter months. It is just as energy efficient as other roofing materials.
- Long Lifespan – Perhaps the most attractive quality about metal roofing is its long lifespan, which can be up to 70 years! While shingle roofing typically needs attention more frequently, and replacement is typical at about 30 years, metal roofing has the potential to last as long as you live in your home and beyond.
