Why Metal Roofing?

If you’ve been considering a roof replacement, chances are you’ve come across metal roofing. Metal roofing can be more expensive than other roofing materials, but metal roofing has so many benefits that many consider it worth the investment.


Some benefits of metal roofing include:

  • Improved durability

  • Better weatherproofing

  • Increased energy savings



Metal roofing (when kept in good shape) can last upwards of 50 years. Some metal roofing materials can last up to 100 years which means after installation, you likely would never have to replace your roof again.


As part of their durability, metal roofing can withstand weather hazards better than other roofing materials. The elements have less of an effect on metal roofs because of their design. As an example, water gets trapped under individual shingles more easily than metal roofing, and hail does less damage.

Metal roofs last through rain and storms, heat and sunshine, high winds, and hail. They’re also more fire resistant than other forms of roofing.

Energy Saving

Metal roofs can help you save energy, which in turn, helps you save money. Metal roofing is naturally reflective and can even have special coatings applied to improve reflection. When sunlight hits, a roof made out of asphalt and other dark materials will absorb the heat and make your home harder to cool.

Metal roofing’s reflective ability is beneficial because it prevents your roof from absorbing the suns rays and heating your home in already warm conditions.

Metal roofing stands up better to time and tempestuous weather, can save you 10-20% on your energy bills, and is 100% recyclable at the end of its lifecycle. If you’ve ever been interested in metal roofing, contact our team to speak with a roofer about your options.
