Metal roofing has a number of advantages, one of which is its durability. Metal roofs can survive storms like hail and strong winds that would cause considerable damage to asphalt shingle roofs. Metal roofs also remain significantly longer than shingled roofs, often up to three times longer.
Metal roofs are not only long-lasting and durable, but they are also safer in the event of a fire or lightning strike because they do not ignite. During the summer, a metal roof may even save you money by reflecting radiant heat rather than absorbing it, lowering your cooling bills.
The gentle pitter-patter of a cool summer rain on a metal roof may be soothing, and you can relax knowing that your roof will not only last but will also be more environmentally friendly than asphalt or shingle roofs. Metal roofs are 100% recyclable, even at the end of their life, whereas practically all asphalt roof tear-off contributes to the billions of pounds of construction waste produced each year.
