Reasons to Install a Metal Roof >

1. Durable & Cost Effective. Metal roofs last 2 to 3 times longer than an asphalt roof. If taken care of properly, a metal roof can last 50+ years. This lowers your lifetime roof replacement costs.  Most asphalt roofs would have to be replaced two or three times for every one metal roof installation.

2. Color Selection. Metal roofs come in just about any color you desire. Excellent for the creative owner interested in a perfect match.

3. Energy Efficiency. Whereas asphalt roofs absorb heat, metal roofs reflect heat. This means it costs less to cool your house in the summer and heat it in the winter.

4. Pattern/Tile Selection. Metal roofs come in many different patterns, shapes and sizes. They can be made to look like slate, tile, shake, tile, or standing seam. Check out this gallery of metal roofing panels.

Metal roofs may cost more, but they last 2 to 3 times longer than asphalt roofs. Thus, the lifecycle costs of a metal roof can be lower than an asphalt roof.

Answering Concerns about Metal Roofs >

1. Are Metal Roofs Noisy?
  Metal roofs are sheathed and sometimes insulated. This nearly silences rain and weather related noises.

2. Will a Metal Roof Rust?  Metal roofs are treated with a zinc or aluminum coating and then are painted. The coating helps the paint adhere to the sheet metal. For the same reasons you rarely see cars rust these days, metal roofs are extremely resistant to rust.

3. Will a Metal Roof Dent When Walked On? Metal roofs are durable enough to walk on. No problem. They can also resist significant weather damage and most systems are rated to withstand 150mph winds.

Forget the metal roof folk lore. Don't worry about noise, rust, or dents.
