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!
