METAL ROOFING ADVANTAGES
Longevity and More Cost Effective
According to State Farm Insurance statistics, metal roofs routinely have a longevity of 40 to 70 years. It is very rare for a homeowner to install more than one metal roof over the time he or she lives in the home. By contrast, a homeowner will likely replace an asphalt shingle roof two to three times over a 50-year period with asphalt shingles. Metal roofing is approximately twice as expensive than asphalt shingles but over the life of the metal roof is less expensive. It also has a lower insurance cost verses asphalt shingle roofing.
Industry studies show that metal roofs reflect solar radiant heat, which can reduce cooling costs by 10 to 25 percent. In climates where cooling costs are higher than heating costs, coating a metal roof with a shiny or granular coating can maximize the reflective capacity of the roof and improve energy savings. Please see the PDF chart below for roof color examples and Solar Reflectance Index table.
Metal Roofs Are Recyclable
When the time comes to replace a metal roof they can be recycled rather than put into landfills like conventional shingle roofs are now.
