Metal Shingles Have Driven Down the Cost of Metal Roofing
First generation metal roofs were more expensive than asphalt shingles, but today our metal roofing contractors install metal shingle roofing. This kind of metal shingle installation can cost up to 40% less than most metal roofs, and also offers the same visual appeal of traditional asphalt shingles.
Metal Roofs Last Longer, Much Longer
If you have a 30-year mortgage, then you will almost definitely have to replace your asphalt shingle roof, which requires reproofing and repairs every 10 to 20 years. In fact, many people take out a loan just to pay for the cost of roof replacement. Metal roofs last about 50 years.
Better on the Environment
Every year, traditional roofing materials like asphalt shingles generate 20 billion pounds of landfill waste. On the other hand, metal roofs are made with at least 25% recycled content, and are up to 100% recyclable themselves.
Lower Energy Costs
A metal shingle installation is also better at insulating your home, and can reduce energy costs by 25% when compared to typical asphalt roofs.
Reduced Insurance Costs
Metal roofing is so dependable that some homeowner’s insurance companies will lower costs by up to 35%. That’s because metal roofing offers better protection from the elements, which can have a major impact on home improvement expenses for decades to come.
