Metal

Metal has become an increasingly popular roofing material for roof replacements and installations. The most commonly used metal for residential roofing is steel alongside copper and stainless steel.

Metal roofs have a lot of benefits as they are long-lasting and durable. The lifespan of a metal roof spans anywhere from 40 to 60 years. In addition, they are fully fireproof and built to withstand harsh weather conditions. Metal roofs help improve your home’s energy efficiency as they reflect solar radiant heat instead of absorbing it, which can help reduce cooling costs by as much as 25%. 

Advantages of Metal

  • Durable and long-lasting
  • Wind and fire-resistant 
  • Energy-efficient 
  • Keeps moisture out 
  • Fully recyclable 
  • Prevents snow from building up on your roof 

Disadvantages of Metal

  • Expensive 
  • Can be dented 
  • Can be noisy, especially during heavy rain or thunderstorms
