Are you considering a metal roof for your home? You’re already taking the first step to your new roof by starting your research. Here are 6 benefits of metal roofs!

Long Lasting

Manufacturers offer most new metal roofs with a long warranty. What is more important, however, is the life span. Every other roofing product has a warranty that is prorated because the typical life expectancy is LESS than the warranty length. With metal roofing, it is the opposite. Whether the metal roof is stone-coated or painted, the life expectancy is typically 100+ years. If you purchase a metal roof, you shouldn’t need to replace the roof for the rest of the time you own that home.

Fire Resistant

Metal is a fire-resistant material, and, in fact, metal is considered a Class A fire-resistant material. Having a fire resistant roof gives your home a better chance of surviving a fire or slowing down a fire.


There is no product more resilient to hail metal roofing. Steel shingles and their Class 4 impact rating will often result in lowered homeowner insurance premiums. Steel shingles, either painted or stone coated, also maintain their appearance better than any other roofing product.

Adds Resale Value

Installing a metal roof adds major resale value to the home. A metal roof is preferred over a different type of roof because a home buyer knows there would be no maintenance necessary before moving into the home.


The National Association of Homebuilders Research Center reports that U.S. landfills receive 20 billion pounds of asphalt shingles each year. You can completely recycle the materials for your metal roof. After installing the roof, you won’t have to worry about replacing shingles.

Save on Heating and Cooling

A metal roof is an excellent insulator and saves money on heating and cooling. Compared to an asphalt roof, a paper-based material, tests prove a metal roof withstands harsh weather like storms, strong sun, and high winds better. Metal roofs have a higher solar reflectance and heat dissipation rating than asphalt shingles, which directly impacts your heating and cooling costs.
