Asphalt roofing is an extremely popular roofing solution that does its job for people all across the country. While it may be the best option for you, it also may not be. There are other roofing solutions and when looking to install a new roof on your house, it’s important that you know all of them. We want to dive a little bit into a growing roofing solution that is Metal Roofing.
Metal roofs are popular for homes, barns or even garages and here are some of the main benefits you’ll gain.
Metal Roofing Benefits:
Lifespan: The average lifespan of a metal roof is around 50+ years and some can even last much longer. Compare that to a asphalt roof which is around 15-20 years. That means less maintenance and less installations. You’ll virtually never have to worry about your roof for a very long time.
Environmental Benefits: If you are trying to be more environmentally friendly then going with metal roofing may be a great option for you. Most asphalt roofs last around 17 years. They can be difficult to recycle and most homes in the US are roofed with asphalt shingles which means that landfills can be strained. So, what are the eco-friendly benefits of going with the metal roofing option.
Recyclability:Metal roofs are made from up from 95% of recycled content. This unmatched recyclability makes then a favorite for green enthusiasts.
Investment: While yes, the initial cost of a metal roof is more than 2-3 times larger than asphalt, you have to think of the long term. Asphalt roofs last around a 1/3 as less than metal and the required maintenance throughout the way to keep an asphalt roof in peak condition is much higher.
