Metal roofing was once a fairly out-of-reach option for most homeowners due to cost. In the past, a metal roof was two to three times more expensive than an asphalt shingle roof. However, shingle prices and materials have changed a lot over the last few years, so metal roofing is a more viable option for those looking to replace or build new commercial and residential roofs. While the initial installation is still more expensive than shingles, the material is more durable and very easy to maintain, making it a long-term win for homeowners.

Benefits of Metal Roofing
The recent appeal of metal roofs has made this material a key contender for many who are considering replacing an outdated or damaged roof, as well as those who are designing new construction. This type of roof can provide an aesthetic statement to the overall composition of a home exterior, but it also provides tremendous longevity and resistance to the elements.
Metal roofs can be installed directly over existing shingles, which eliminates the cost and effort of a roof tear-off prior to application. Metal also reflects the sun’s UV rays, which can be damaging and increase temperatures when absorbed by asphalt shingles. (Think about walking on hot pavement on a really sunny day.) This can help lower utility bills and keep the home cooler during warm seasons. And when the colder months are near, metal sheds snow, ice, and water like few materials can, so you’re keeping your roof clear of heavy build-up.
