If you’re curious about metal roofing, there are many advantages of metal over shingles. Below we’ve outlined some differences between metal roofs and traditional asphalt shingles.
The Benefits of Metal vs. Asphalt Roofing
The roofing contractors at TX Roofing Solutions proudly provide metal roof installation, replacement and repair services for Ft. Worth and Arlington, Texas, residents and property owners.
And while steel is more commonly used in commercial applications, the benefits of metal roofing extend to residential properties too.
Here are four advantages a metal roof can offer you:
Easy New Installation – You can avoid the tearing off of an existing roof. Metal roofs can be installed overtop asphalt, as long as there isn’t already two layers prior. Metal is also lighter, which means less stress on your home’s structure.
Reduced Energy Costs – How does cutting costs while saving energy sound? Metal roofs lower bills by keeping your home better insulated during hot and cold months. Depending on its finish, metal can either reflect or re-emit solar radiation, thereby heating or cooling your home, whereas an asphalt roof will absorb these rays.
Average Roof Lifespan – Typically a metal roof will last 50 years or so, whereas an asphalt roof will last about 20 years. Fiber cement and wood shakes have a life expectancy of 25 to 30 years. Yes, a metal roof will cost more initially, but the durability pays for itself over time, with little lifetime maintenance.
A Wide Variety of Styles – Another advantage of metal roofing is the selection. There are so many finishes, coats and color options, that you wouldn’t even know you’re looking at a metal system. You can choose from synthetic slate, clay, wood, and concrete tiling, in virtually any color you prefer.
