More About Metal Roofing

If you’re ready to replace your existing roof, it’s time to look at all your options.

Although shingles are the most common type of roofing in North America, metal roofing has grown tremendously in popularity – and with good reason! There are a wide variety of options with metal roofing, and it could be the perfect option for you. Metal roofs can be made of steel, aluminum, copper, zinc, or tin and are visually extremely diverse and appealing. Visually, it can have the look of shingles, slate, tile, shakes, or vertical panels and come in a wide variety of colors.

Because of its longevity, a metal roof will be more expensive than other roofing options, but it will truly be a long-term investment in your property. Metal roofing is expected to last up to 70 years, so with minor regular maintenance, you will have a roof you never have to replace again! Be sure to choose experienced roofers for installation to ensure that it lasts for decades with only minimal maintenance requirements.

Advantages of Metal Roofing


Properly installed metal roofing can withstand extremely high winds – up to 140 mph! Metal roofs also don’t require costly maintenance due to the durability and stability of the materials and installation. Regular inspection is recommended, especially after extreme weather, to ensure that your roof did not sustain damage and is not subjected to pooling water.

Fire, pest, & decay-resistant.

Metal roofing is nearly impervious to pests such as raccoons, rodents, and birds. If your roof and trim pieces are properly installed, they are virtually impossible for animals to penetrate. In addition, metal roofing is fire-resistant. Instead of embers landing on a shingled roof and igniting the tar and oils, a metal roof will not ignite and may help your home survive a disaster. Steel panels are the most fire-safe if this is a specific concern for you.


Your metal roof will last 40-70 years depending on the material used. Incredibly, the highest quality metal roofing materials such as zinc and copper can last well over 100 years. A metal roof can be installed quickly and efficiently, saving you the headache of a longer project.

Energy efficiency

An incredible plus for metal roofs is how it reflects much of the sun’s UV and infrared light, reducing your cooling costs in the summer by 10-25%! In addition, metal cools dramatically when the sun goes down which will allow your home to cool overnight, further reducing your cooling needs.

Environmentally friendly

Metal roofing is made of 25-95% recycled materials and is also 100% recyclable after its removal in the future. Metal roofing also works very well with solar panels – in addition to providing you with additional electrical power, the solar panels will shade your roof and further reduce your cooling costs.
