If you are sick and tired of asphalt roofing problems, you are not alone. Asphalt is a popular option because it’s inexpensive and it’s readily available. The downsides is that it is not durable to say the least. With that said, a typical life span for an asphalt roof is about 10-15 years! That’s not a very long time before you will need to shop around for a new roof.

If you’ve driven around lately, you’ve probably noticed that metal roofs have truly come full circle during the past century. The reason so many are falling in love with this material is that it is so durable. When it comes to wind and weather resistance, metal roofing stands alone, meeting the toughest wind, fire, and impact codes in the country. Your metal roof will probably even outlast you because most last 3 to 4 times longer than an asphalt shingle roof.

Another great benefit of metal roofing is that there is a genuine concern in helping to maintain and improve the environment for future generations. Metal is one of the most energy efficient roofing systems available and tests have shown that it can save you up to 40% on cooling costs.

In addition, metal is not asphalt based like shingles, which means its production doesn’t continue to fuel our country’s biggest addiction… oil.
