Metal Roofing vs. Asphalt Shingles
Not all roofing materials are created equal, so finding one that meets your utility and aesthetic expectations requires some serious research. While homeowners may default to asphalt shingles, the manifold benefits of metal roofs have successfully turned many shingle buyers into loyal metal roof owners. Metal roofs outshine asphalt shingles in longevity, energy efficiency, and customization. They are extremely robust and will outperform not only shingles, but any other roofing material on the market.
Metal vs Asphalt: Comparing Longevity
When it comes to longevity, metal is definitely the winner over asphalt. Asphalt shingles can suffer distortion during thermal expansions and contractions, while metal is completely immune to temperature change and severe climate conditions. As a result, metal roofs will not chip, crack, or become loose over time. Because of its exceptional durability, they can live up to 50 years and beyond without any maintenance or upkeep on your part.
Superior Energy Efficiency
Besides living two to three times longer than shingles, metal roofs are also extremely eco-friendly and energy efficient. Made of 100% recyclable materials, metal demonstrates high solar reflectance and thermal emissivity to effectively radiate any incoming solar heat away from your home. Instead of absorbing and trapping heat like asphalt shingles, metal roofs will make your home 50 to 60 degrees cooler during the summer than a conventional dark-colored roof.
Our metal roofs come with an outstanding decade spanning limited warranty. Additionally, a metal roof will reduce your cooling bills by as much as 40%. For homeowners who may want to sell their homes in the future, metal roofs have been known to increase your home’s resale value by 1% to 6%. Depending on where you live, homeowners on average can recoup around 86% of their initial investment, making it a truly economic and efficient choice for everyone.
Asphalt shingles may promise you a handful of color choices, but when you choose metal you are immediately greeted with several different choices in style and design. Practically hundreds of customization options. To maximize your customization experiences, many metal roofs can be coated to emulate the texture, color, and feel of wood, asphalt shingles, and slates. Available in the styles of shingles, panels, and more, metal roofs can easily accommodate historic homes, homes with a low pitched roof, and buildings with a curved roofing design. Homeowners are invited to be creative and witty when choosing their roof, while still maintaining a sustainable outlook with easy-to-install solar panels, energy efficient coatings, and insulation mats.
