Metal roofing systems provide a wide range of benefits, especially when compared to other traditional roofing materials such as asphalt shingles or cedar shakes. Metal roofing is highly durable and strong. You can usually expect anywhere between 50 and 60 years of use without the need for maintenance or replacement. Metal roofs are also designed to reduce the impacts of nature, including wind, rain, and hail. Because of their unique composition, they are also moisture resistant, ensuring that your home is protected from mold growth and damage from water exposure. Despite the greater initial investment, metal roofing systems will save you money over time with reduced energy costs and the elimination of maintenance and replacement costs.
