Reasons for Choosing Metal Roof Over Other Options


The roofing industry in the US is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.8% in the next few years. With so many new roofers entering the market with versatile and different products, it’s wise to understand why and what you should be buying.

Today, we’ve taken this opportunity to educate you about the reasons for choosing a metal roof. So continue reading and learn how a metal roof can be the best roofing option compared to tile, asphalt, and slate roofs.

Metal vs. Tile

We’ve seen many homeowners opt for tile roofing due to its aesthetic appeal. While tile roofing may provide that chic, Spanish look to your property, you may want to rethink your options. Tile roofing can be very heavy compared to a metal roof. It’s not recyclable and extremely expensive to repair, install, and replace.

On the other hand, metal roofs are sleek and sturdy. They can withstand fire, moisture, wind, and heavy impact collisions without causing damage to your property’s interior.

Metal vs. Asphalt

Metal vs. asphalt is probably the most heated topic in the roofing industry, but it’s safe to say that asphalt cannot top the advantages and cost-effectiveness of metal roofs. Homeowners choose asphalt as it’s less expensive and easy to install. Many choose to do DIY asphalt roofing on their home, which can be a bit dangerous.

However, no matter how affordable asphalt roofing materials may be, they can lead to costlier repairs and restoration. Unlike metal roofs, asphalt is more prone to wind and water damage and can last for no more than 20 years. Check out our metal roofs made with premium quality Galvalume material and patented Smart Paint technology that can last up to 100 years!

Metal vs. Slate

Slate is another popular roofing material choice in the US. However, unlike metal, slate is quite heavy and puts a lot of strain on a building. Moreover, it can be very expensive and require highly technical repairs. Metal is surely a more durable, user-friendly, and efficient alternative to slate roofs and can be manufactured using copper, zinc, and other long-lasting materials.
