Why are Metal Roofs Better Than Shingles?

Metal roofs, once primarily only used for commercial projects, have rapidly become one of the most popular materials for residences. While metal roofs initially cost a bit more than other materials, such as shingles, they have an average lifespan of 40 to 50 years, making them a great investment. By reading the following list of benefits, you can see why a metal roof might be the right choice for your home too.

The Amount of Color Choices

As homeowners look at paint colors, they consider how these would match their home’s overall style. In the same way, homeowners also look at colors for other exterior items, such as siding, trim, window frames, door frames, etc. The beauty of metal roofing is that it comes in a nearly limitless variety of colors and if you don’t see a metal roofing color that perfectly fits your home, there’s still an easy solution! Metal roof colors can be customized to match your personal preference.

A Modern Look

Metal roofs come in an array of styles, allowing you to easily find the modern look that will complement your home. We offer standing seam and corrugated metal panels, perfect for low or steep-pitched roofs, and metal shingle panels that are great for any home. Whether you choose to blend in with your neighbors or stand out, our roofing experts will be able to recommend the right product for your home.

More Resistance to the Elements

Living in St. Louis, you must prepare your roof for bad weather by minimizing the chance of wind damage and leaks. Metal roofs can withstand up to 140 mph winds, which is equal to an F2 tornado, and are strong enough to resist impact damage from hailstorms. Sealed tight with their flashing points, they let the water cascade down and are nearly impenetrable to moisture and leaks. High winds, heavy rain, and snow are no match for our metal roofs. Make your new roof one less thing to worry about as you check the house after a storm.

An Eco-Friendly Option

Eco-friendly roofing options have been on the rise as of late. The greenest material is metal, as they are continuously recyclable and are typically made from recycled materials. Metal roofs are also more energy-efficient in the summer. Since metal is highly reflective, this helps to cool your roof down. Metal roofs also hold their own throughout the winter, providing excellent insulation.
