Will metal roofing cost more than regular roofing material 

Because metal roofing is a premium lifetime product, you can expect the initial cost of your new steel roof to be roughly two to three times what an asphalt or fiberglass shingle roof costs. However, a metal roof will last you seven to nine times longer than an asphalt or fiberglass shingle making it a much more cost-effective solution. No matter what kind of metal roofing style you choose, you’ll never have to worry about your roof again. Most come with a true fifty-year warranty. Plus, your new metal roof will add to the resale value of your home, save you money on your energy bills, and give you peace of mind that you’ll likely never have to re-roof again.

How much longer will a metal roof last than another material?

To put it in context, the average lifespan of an asphalt roof is twelve to twenty years. That lifespan can be shorter depending on the pitch of your roof and the climate in your area. Made of oil impregnated paper or fiberglass, asphalt begins to deteriorate as soon as you expose it to normal weather. A metal roof, however, will never decompose. 

How will metal roofing stand up to harsh weather?

Metal roofing can handle very harsh weather conditions. Metal roofing material can stand up to strong winds, fire, hail, snow, ice, and won’t decompose or grow algae or moss over time. 

Is metal roofing environmentally friendly?

Not only is metal roofing great for your home, but it’s also great for the environment. The recycled content of the steel in a metal roof is about 28% and is completely recyclable at the end of its lifespan. This makes metal roofing a green building material.
