A metal roof lasts up to 50 years or more, far longer than the average lifespan of non-metal roofs (17 years) and asphalt roofs (10 to 20 years).
More Energy Efficient
A metal roof can save 25% in energy costs compared to an asphalt roof. Metal roofing panels reflect solar radiation far more efficiently than traditional roofing materials, which absorb and retain more heat. Because of this energy efficiency, your metal roof may qualify for tax incentives.
Typical metal roofs have a minimum 25% recycled content, making them a green alternative to traditional products. Metal roofing is 100% recyclable when removed.
Most metal roofing comes with a true 30 to 50 year manufacturer warranty, plus a workmanship warranty from the installer.
Metal roofing is available in many durable colors to match any residential and commercial design.
Protection From Lightning, Fire and Weather
A metal roof does not increase the likelihood of a lightning strike. If your roof were hit by lightning, your metal roof would disperse the energy safely throughout the structure. Since metal roofing isn't combustible or flammable, it's a low risk and desirable roofing option where severe weather is concerned, especially for lightning.
When installed with solid sheathing, a metal roof will silence noise from rain, hail and other weather, providing better noise insulation than traditional roofing materials.
Today's metal roofing systems have a metallic coating made of either zinc or zinc and aluminum. This coating prevents rust and is bonded to the steel. Paint is applied over the metallic coating to provide long-lasting color.
Dent, Damage and Weather Resistant
A metal roof typically withstands decades of abuse from extreme weather including hail, high wind, and heavy snow. Metal roofs have a 150-mph wind rating.
You can safely walk a metal roof without damaging it. Please ask your installer about any details on how to walk on your particular roof, based on the style and your roof pitch.
Metal roofing is a better choice in every way: It lasts 50 years, cuts energy costs, is more resistant to storm damage, is better for the environment, and is available in more colors and styles than traditional roof materials. Read more benefits
