I've always been a metal roof fanatic. To me, roof design and roofing material are as important to a house as hair is to humans and I think metal roofs are beautiful.

The advantages of metal roofing over other types of roofing materials, such as asphalt roofing are unique:

  • Metal roofs stand out and make a house memorable to both casual onlookers and prospective purchasers.
  • A metal roof could increase the value of your home.
  • Since a metal roof can last 50 years, it may be the only roof you ever have to install.
  • Because of its lighter weight, a metal roof can be installed over an existing roof, saving time and money.
  • Besides being fire and spark resistant, metal roofs are also resistant to wind and hail, all of which result in peace of mind and lower home insurance.
  • If you have ever worried about snow building up on your roof or roof snow removal, metal roofs shed snow.
  • Air conditioning costs can be lowered and comfort raised because metal roofs are energy efficient.
