Moss and fungus will not grow on metal 

Unlike asphalt, metal roofing is 100% unaffected by the growth of moss, mold, and mildew, fungus, and moss, all the common afflictions are known to plaque impermanent roofs made of asphalt or wood such as cedar shingles and shakes.

Metal roofing is pest and animal proof

If you live in a heavily-wooded area, where raccoons and rodents can get onto your roof from the tree branch, you can rest assured that they won’t be able to damage a metal roof to break into your attic. Because of the slick and smooth surface of your metal roof, pests and animals will not have the traction to climb on your roof let alone build a dwelling or damage the roof.

Another benefit of high-end metal roofs is that many systems carry Class A fire retardant ratings. This can be particularly important in areas that are prone to wildfires. You can have confidence knowing that your roof will never catch fire. 

Metal is sustainable 

Metal is a sustainable and durable alternative to asphalt or cedar. Metal roofs can last at least three times as long as asphalt shingles, without requiring as much maintenance. At least 30 percent of the material that is used to create a metal roof has been previously recycled. Some metal roofs are made of 100 percent recycled content. When you choose a metal roof for your home, you can have peace of mind knowing that you are using recycled material and minimizing your eco-footprint.
