Here are some things to consider when you want to replace your shingle roof with a metal one.

  • Metal roofing can save you money over time. This is because at first shingles may cost you less, however, you need to also consider energy savings, regular maintenance, and replacement costs of those shingles. Adding all of that up proves that the metal roof is cheaper in the end.
  • Many owners are able to retrofit or recover their existing shingle roofs without tearing off any shingles.
  • Metal roofing is more energy-efficient than shingle roofing. This is especially true if you use sheathing ventilation (ASV) and reflective paint systems. Homeowners on average can save up to 20% on their electricity bills.
  • Metal roofs are 100% recyclable & sustainable. A roofing shingle can take up to 300 years to compose so they fill up landfills.
  • Metal roofs comes in a wide range of different colors and style options.
  • Metal roofing can hold up during hail and high wind storms much better compared to shingles. Installing a metal roof is most likely the last roof install you will have to have.
  • Metal roofs are great for solar panels & other applications.
  • Even though this installation may take a couple of days longer than shingles, it will be worth it. This type of roofing also requires contractors who understand how to properly install it. This is why finding a team who understands how to install metal roofing is crucial.
  • There are a variety of levels of metal roofing product quality. Asking your local metal roofing team for advice can help you decide which is best for your home or business.
  • A metal roof isn’t as noisy when it rains.
  • Metal roofs are better for homes that have low-sloped roofs compared to shingles.
  • Oil canning can occur on some metal roofs, if oil canning is a concern, make sure to talk with your contractor about using narrower-width panels, and a striated pan condition. Striations involve placing a very minor bend in the flat panel every few inches. This helps absorb thermal cycling which reduces the appearance of oil canning.
  • There is a wide price range for metal roofing, so if you are thinking about a metal roof, there may be something in the price range you are looking for.
