The Benefits of Metal Roofing

September 3rd, 2021 | By Dale Chastain

Metal roofing has become a popular choice for homeowners, especially in the past ten years. Many homeowners are scared away by the greater upfront cost, but there are strong benefits which can make metal roofing a wise long-term choice. The team at Chastain Roofing wants to help you choose the ideal roof for your needs. Consider the benefits of metal roofing to see if it may be a good fit for your home.

  • Built to Last — Metal is made to withstand inclement weather without becoming damaged. Each metal roof variety has different features, but they are all wind-resistant, fire-resistant, and weathertight. Metal is a durable choice to endure whatever weather comes your way.
  • A Color for Every Home — Metal roofing comes in a variety of color choices to suit your home’s style. Lighter colors will be more energy efficient, but any color of metal roof will have the reflective quality to still be a green choice.
  • Go Green — Metal roofing reflects solar radiant heat, so you may be amazed how much your cooling costs go down. Reducing your cooling costs means you are saving money and being kind to the environment at the same time. Beyond energy efficiency, metal roofing is made from recycled materials and is 100% recyclable when your roof reaches its lifespan. Metal roofing is a win-win for you and the planet.
  • Long Live Metal Roofing — Asphalt shingles generally last about 20 years, while metal roofing endures for 40-70 years on average. Even high quality architectural shingles only promise an average of 30 years. Although basic asphalt shingles may be cheaper than a metal roof, architectural shingles are not that much cheaper than metal and cannot deliver as long of a lifespan. When you are thinking long-term, metal is a strong choice.
