Investing in a Metal Roof Pays Off

A quality roof is arguably the most important component of a home. Many architects, builders, and homeowners feel that a metal roof is more visually appealing than an asphalt one. While metal roofing might be more expensive initially, it tends to last much longer. A metal roof can last for many years with very little maintenance. The roof will maintain its character and appearance. There are several reasons to consider metal roofing.

Quality Materials

The metal will provide a barrier that is waterproof and protect the home from the elements. The materials are strong and can handle all climates. The steel panels are Class A fire resistant, so they will not burn nor fuel a fire further.

Energy Efficient

The way the roofing is installed allows air to move and adds an additional layer of insulation to a home. This will help keep the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter meaning less time to run the heat and air.


The metal roofing option will allow families to invest in products that are made to last a lifetime. Taking the time to do the math from the time an asphalt roof is installed to replacement every 10 years or so will make it clear that the initial investment of a metal roof will pay off in the long run.

Selling the Home

For those that decide to sell their home later, know that the lifetime warranty will still be effective even if the home changes owners. This adds a great selling point for potential buyers because this is one less thing they will have to worry about. They will benefit from the initial investment too.

Insurance Savings

While everyone’s insurance can be different, many have given feedback that they have seen a savings of to 30% or more on the cost of homeowner’s insurance. This is not only because of the Class A Fire Resistant Rating but also the ability to stand up in extreme weather.
