Asphalt shingles are the most commonly used roofing material in North America. However, if you live in an area that often suffers from windstorms, you’ll notice that roof shingles are particularly vulnerable to this type of weather. The wind might seem innocent, but many homeowners soon learn that intense winds can tear even secure roof shingles loose.
You can’t do much to change the weather, but you can do something about the state of your roof. If your roof shingles are constantly taking hits and needing repair, metal roofing may be your solution.
- Durability. Metal roofing can last decades. This type of roofing is especially good at withstanding high winds, heavy rainfall, hail impacts, and even UV exposure.
- Low Maintenance. Does your roof need a repair job every time strong winds pass through? Metal roofing requires very little fuss to keep it in good shape. About once a year, give your metal roof a check-up. Keep an eye out for fallen branches and other debris scattered on your roof, as this litter could potentially clog your gutters.
- Cost. Metal roofing has a higher upfront cost compared to shingles, but the longevity of a metal roof over shingles makes it well worth the expense. Aluminum, zinc, copper, and stainless steel are popular materials used in metal roof construction. Different types of metals have different price points, so make sure you opt for a metal that offers the most bang for your buck.
