If your home is in need of a roof replacement, you’ll need to decide what materials to use.

While many people choose asphalt shingles, metal roofing is also a great option to consider.

Why metal roofing? For starters, it comes with many benefits and is an excellent long-term investment. Let’s take a closer look at the advantages of choosing it for your roof replacement.


When installed by professionals, metal roofing can last 50 years or more. Meanwhile, an asphalt roof needs to be replaced every 20 years or so or less, depending on the quality of the material. While metal roofing costs more than other types, your initial investment is spread out over many years of use.

Low Maintenance

Not only will a metal roof last longer than other types of material used for a roof replacement, but it also needs minimal maintenance. Keeping your metal roof free from debris (with the help of your licensed roofer) and scheduling an annual inspection is all you’ll typically need to keep it in good shape.

Increased Resale Value

If you use metal for your roof replacement, the resale value of your home is sure to go up – in some cases over 90%. In turn, this enables you to recoup your metal roof’s higher up-front cost.

Looks Great

Metal roofs come in a variety of styles, construction materials, paint options, coatings, and more. That makes it easy to find the right look that best complements your home and fits your style.

Superior Protection

Choosing metal for your roof replacement ensures that your home has proper protection against extreme climate conditions. For example, metal roofs are resistant to hail damage and have the highest fire-resistant rating possible. Moreover, metal roofs can withstand winds gusts up to 140 mph.
