A well-maintained asphalt shingle roof may last 18 years, but will still need to be replaced every few decades. The materials within an asphalt shingle naturally degrade over time, as they encounter normal weathering. A metal roof, on the other hand, is built to last multiple decades and can give a homeowner the peace of mind knowing that their home’s interior is protected for up to 40 years. Whether you are installing a shake, tile, or vertical seam metal roof, you will instantly get a reliable roof that can withstand anything that Mother Nature throws its way and still maintain an attractive finish.
The climate and the overall architectural design of your home can drive what metal patterns and styles may work best. Metal roofs come in a variety of colors and styles to fit your roofing preferences. For an environmentally friendly option, choosing a lightly colored metal roof can give your home a cooler feel. No matter what design you choose for your metal roof, going with a white or light color reflects more of the sun’s rays, leaving your home’s attic areas cooler throughout the intense summer heat. Metal roofs are also excellent heat insulators in the winter, keeping more heat in your home. In the long run, this can reduce your air conditioning and heating bills.
When you decide to replace your existing roof with a metal roofing system, you are investing in a long-term benefit for your home. A metal roof may cost more money upfront, in comparison to a traditional asphalt shingle roof, but in the end, your replacement costs will be lower, as you get over 20 years more life out of your roof than other shingle roof owners. Depending on the roofing manufacturer, your new metal roof may come with a 30 to 50-year warranty. Plus, metal roofs are the lowest maintenance roofing type and come with virtually $0 maintenance costs.
