For years, metal roofing has been gaining in popularity for commercial properties. No big surprise there but now the material is picking up steam in the residential market. Drive around and you will see that more and more homeowners are getting rid of their flimsy asphalt roofs that need to be replaced every 10-15 years and switching to metal. I mean, who wants to deal with missing asphalt shingles every time it storms? With that being said, who wants to deal with replacing their roof after a measly 10-15 years? Not many people. Asphalt is popular because it’s readily available and it’s cheap. However, when you factor in repairs and having to replace it after such a small amount of time, it really doesn’t add up to being such a great bargain after all.

The biggest problems with asphalt shingles has to do with their durability. The problem is that asphalt shingles have been known to become damaged before their warranty expires, and that means the homeowner is left footing the bill. Not Cool!

The bottom line is that if you don’t want to deal with replacing your roof every 10-15 years you really should look into quality metal roofing.
