No one wants to replace their roof after 10-15 years. No one! When I was a new homeowner and was told that I would have to replace my asphalt roof after that short amount of time, I was speechless. I seriously could not believe that something as major as a roof would only last that long. Having said all that, it’s no big surprise that more and more homeowners are getting sick and tired of dealing with roofing problems every time it storms. Commercial properties have opted for metal roofs for years and now a growing number of homeowners are now looking at metal roofing for their homes.

Residential metal roofing is one of the fastest growing segments of home improvement, today. The bottom line is that homeowners don’t want to deal with a roof that is damaged every time it storms. Metal is the strongest roofing material on the market and will stand up against the strongest of storms. No matter how intense the wind speeds are. While other roofs quickly diminish in value as they age, metal provides the following lasting benefits:

*Proven performance expectation of 50+ years
*Strongest Roof on the Market, Withstands High Winds with Ease
*Beautiful styles to match any home or neighborhood
*Interlocking panels for maximum wind resistance
*Fire resistance
*Energy efficiency by keeping homes cooler
*Low weight to help preserve structural integrity and life

NO ONE Wants to Replace their Roof Every 10-15 Years

Most homeowners don’t want to think about roofing issues especially if there are repairs that need to be done. Asphalt is the most popular roofing material on the market today but its definitely not the most durable. The reason its so popular is that its readily available and its the cheapest of all the options. The problem is that asphalt shingles have been known to become damaged before their warranty expires. Plus, asphalt needs to be replaced every ten to fifteen years!

10-15 years is the max you’ll really get on an asphalt roof without signs of significant damage. Bald spots, worn areas, roof discoloration and pieces that have blown off due to inclement weather, are all problems you’ll see. So, while asphalt does have a cheaper purchase price it really doesn’t add up to be the cheapest option once you factor in how easily it gets damaged and how often you will have to replace it. If all of this doesn’t sound like a very good deal to you then you really need to look into the benefits of a metal roof.

Metal is a superior roofing material because it holds up to any and all severe weather including the highest of winds. Plus, home improvement experts say a metal roof is most likely the last roof you’ll ever need! Erie Construction of Evansville, Indiana is proud to be considered one of the trusted leaders in the industry. We’ve built our reputation on offering the highest quality metal roofs at fair and honest prices. We would love the opportunity to come out and show you our high quality products.

NEVER Worry about Missing Shingles Ever Again

Twenty years ago, no one would believe that homeowners were going to be ditching asphalt in place of a metal roof, but that is exactly what is happening. Metal is definitely not the most popular roofing option out there but it is picking up steam. The biggest reason homeowners are getting fed up with asphalt is that it just doesn’t hold up. Asphalt doesn’t fare well in severe weather conditions especially strong winds and only has a shelf life of 10-15 years. 10-15 years and you need a new roof! I don’t know about you but that just doesn’t sit well with me. At all!

So now let’s talk about metal and more specifically why metal is gaining in popularity. In a nutshell, metal roofing is the most economical roofing material available. If you want a roof that will most likely be the last roof you’ll ever need then you really should consider a metal roof. Most come with a 50+-year warranty, a hail penetration warranty and a wind warranty up to 120 miles per hour. This is not only amazing it means you will never have to worry about your roof no matter how strong the storms are! In my house, I like to do whatever I can to save money on those out of control energy bills. This is another reason why metal just makes sense. With metal, you will see a reduction in energy costs during summer and winter months. Metal roofing can be installed over an existing roof, which creates even more insulation from temperature extremes. Metal reflects 70% of the sun’s energy. This minimizes heat retention and as a result less heat is transferred into the building’s structure. Not the case with asphalt.

Erie Construction of Evansville, Indiana is proud to be considered one of the trusted leader in the industry and would love to come out and show you the benefits of our product. Stop replacing your asphalt roof every 10-15 years. With our high quality roof, you never have to worry about missing shingles ever again!
