Metal Roofing: Pros and Cons

November 12, 2020 | Blog

Metal roofing is the ‘it’ thing when it comes to new home styling these days. Like many things, you have to wonder if a metal roof is a good feature on your house – or if it’s just something people get to look cool. Well, wonder no more because we are here to help. Let’s talk about some pros and cons of metal roofing!

Pro – Energy Efficiency

When living somewhere hot, like Texas, you know how expensive it can be to run your AC all summer. A regular asphalt shingle roof absorbs all the heat from the sun, which only makes your home warmer and your bills higher. Metal roofing reflects most of the sun’s rays, which keeps your home cooler and bills lower. This makes it the most energy-efficient roof on the market.

Con – Cost

On average, a metal roof is more expensive to install on your home than asphalt shingle. This is due to material and labor costs, which combined will cost you about $9-$12 per square foot on average. Asphalt shingles comparatively will run you the cost of about half the metal roofing average.

Pro – Durability

One of the biggest attractions of metal roofing is the durability. Because they are made of metal, these roofs can last 40-70 years with proper maintenance and have long warranties to match. Asphalt shingles will usually last 12-20 years, which means they’ll need to be replaced at least once – and maybe twice – before a metal roof needs replacing.

Pro – Style

As mentioned previously, metal roofing is very stylish these days. With multiple designs, colors and materials, they can suit just about any home. You have the freedom to customize your roofing almost any way you like, meaning that your home won’t be boring.

While metal roofing has many benefits, none of them can truly be utilized unless you have your roof installed by professionals. Hiring certified roofers to make the installation will ensure that your new metal roof will stand the test of time and look good doing it.
