Benefits of a Metal Roof
Although the initial cost of a metal roof will be more than that of a shingle roof, over the life of the roof, a metal roof will cost less.
A properly installed metal roof manufactured from quality metal roofing materials can be expected to last 2 to 3 times longer than a shingle roof.
A pigmented metal roof that bears an Energy Star label can be expected to save a homeowner a minimum of 10% to 15% on their energy bills. A metal roof can do this by reflecting more of the sun’s rays. A typical shingle roof will absorb the sun’s rays and that heat will transfer into the house.
A quality metal roof can come with up to a 40 year warranty and be expected to last that long and even longer.
