Metal Roof Compared to Standard Shingle Roofs
Metal roofing systems are becoming more popular in residential homes. Many homeowners enjoy the sleek design and added durability of a metal roofing system. But what are the main differences and how do I know what is the best option for me?
Metal roofing systems are typically much more expensive than standard shingle roofing systems. While a standard shingle roofing system will normally run about $3-$5 per square foot, a metal roofing system will typically run $5-$10 per square foot. While the actual material is not excessively more expensive the main difference in cost comes from the skill and labor to actually install or service a metal roof. Metal roofing systems are much more intensive and complex to install. Not just any roofing company has the know-how and equipment to properly install a metal roof and a successful job can often take two or three times as long as a shingle roof. Add in the expense of the metal material and you get a significantly more expensive project.
Metal is a very strong material. While asphalt shingles can rip just from someone's hand strength, metal shingles can withstand most hurricane-grade winds, hail, snow, and ice build-ups. The base warranty on a metal roof usually starts at 40 years which includes damages to paint (bubbling, chipping) however, because of the added durability, it is not uncommon for a metal roofing system to last up to 60 years or more if maintained properly. This added lifespan is a big reason why many homeowners are unphased by metal roofing systems' higher price tag.
Shingle roofs are actually incredibly absorbent of the sun's heat-causing your attic to capture excess heat during the summertime, seeping that warmth into the rest of your home. Metal roofs, on the other hand, actually reflect that heat away from your home meaning it is actually a lot more cost-efficient to air-condition. This can save as much as 20% - 30% on cooling bills. Additionally, metal roofing material is often made from recycled material making it a great green option.
Metal roofing systems offer a great amount of variety with the ability to choose the type of metal, the color, and the format (tile, shingle, panel). Many commercial properties like to brand their buildings with custom colors. A metal roofing system allows those businesses to style their roofing system exactly how they want it, whereas a shingle roofing system is much more limited when it comes to framing the properties aesthetic.
