Deciding on a residential roof material is one of the most important things you will do when you are building a new home or performing a re-roof on an existing home. Skyline Roofing Inc. installs shingle roofs and metal roofs alike. We will often recommend a metal roof because of the high quality of the product and the longevity it provides for a homeowner as well as the cost savings when analyzed over a long period of time.
Metal Roofing generally costs more than shingle roofing, but shingle roofs only have a lifespan of between 15 and 30 years. Metal Roofing, on the other hand, can last well over 50 years or more. Metal Roofs also withstand a far higher mile per hour wind than asphalt shingles. Metal Roofs are also fireproof which is not only safer but also can provide a reduced insurance premium in some cases.
If you plan on being in your home for a long period of time, we definitely recommend you install a metal roof. While it may be more expensive up front, the long-term cost is cheaper than shingles. A metal roof will provide you with a unique look and set your house apart ensuring pride in the place you call home.
And don’t worry about your metal roof looking like a commercial building. There are various types of metal roof colors and compositions. A great example of unique metal roofs can be found in our portfolio below. You will see several different colors that can be used. Another example can be found in the video above.
