In today's market there are many options for your new roof. There are several roofing solutions, from asphalt shingles, wood shingles, slate shingles, and metal roofs.
Metal roofing has increased in popularity greatly in recent years. The main reason people are preferring metal to the more traditional asphalt shingle is that metal offers a stronger and more durable solution. Metal roofing also provides safety and is very cost effective.
Especially in our area, metal roofs provide the durability to withstand extreme weather such as heavy rain, high winds and tornados. There is also protection from fire, which is also very important.
Color options is another major influence for the rising popularity. There are several color choices for your metal roof. You can really match and accessorize your home better than with an asphalt shingle. It gives you the ability to have a more daring and bold look - if that's what you prefer. Of course, the traditional colors are also available.
The increased price point is easily offset by the longevity and high durability for a metal roof versus the more traditional roofing solutions. Metal roofs last approximately 50 years compared to asphalt roofs - typically lasting 15-20 years on average.
After browsing around and doing your due diligence, consulting with a licensed roofing contractor is advised. They can offer ideas and insight that you might not have already thought of. They can really give you all the pros and cons of the different roofing solutions available to you.
