There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to whether metal roofing is superior to asphalt roofing, but for many people, it’s the right choice. Check out the following sections to learn more so you can make the right decision.
Metal roofing typically lasts a lot longer than asphalt shingles do. In fact, most metal roofs can last for up to 80 years (with some being on the low end of the spectrum with 40-year lifespans). On average, a metal roof lasts two to three times longer than asphalt shingles do.
Most metal roofing materials are typically easy to clean – you’ll just use simple soap and water. (Just don’t use abrasive tools, which can scratch your roof’s surface.) These metal roofing materials typically come out of the factory having been coated with zinc or a mixture of zinc and aluminum to protect them.
Metal roofs may increase your building’s resale value, and it may help you lower your insurance rates. That’s because metal is fire-resistant. Most metal roofs come with extensive warranties, as well, and they can handle difficult weather events like hail, heavy snow and high winds. When your roof is tough enough to stand up to the elements, you won’t have to pay to have it repaired or replaced.
