Which one is right for your home?

Your roof is arguably one of the most important components of your home. Unfortunately, it's often one of the most overlooked areas of many homes.

With so many options now available to contractors, architects, and homeowners, the question becomes, 'which one is the best choice for my home?' Let's take a look at a few of the outstanding benefits of metal roofing vs asphalt shingles.

Longevity. While the initial cost for a premium metal roof is higher than some other roofing materials, you'll save money in the long run. A metal roof can last a lifetime, whereas materials like asphalt require reproofing every 10 to 20 years.

Lasting Value. A metal roof can also increase the resale value of your home. In some states, like Texas, a metal roof can even lower your homeowner's insurance by 35% The average life of a non-metal roof is 17 years. Asphalt can require re-roofing every 10 to 20 years, often sooner. But a metal roofing system offers unmatched durability, lasting 2 to 3 times longer. The chances are good that a metal roof will be the last roof you ever install on your home.

Energy Savings. Metal roofing in both light and dark colors reflects heat effectively to reduce cooling loads in the summer and insulate homes during the winter. This can help to lower energy bills.

Unmatched Warranty. Most metal roofing comes with a true 30 plus year manufacturer warranty, plus a workmanship warranty from the installer. Here at Metal Exteriors, we stand behind our metal roofing products with a full 40 year warranty.
