Your home and your roof work in harmony and they need to be a match. However, it can be hard to get the exact aesthetic that you want with shingle roofing. If it is time for a new roof and you are exploring material options, what about metal roofing? Shingle roofing is so tied to residential roofing that it can be difficult to even consider another material, but your home might just be a perfect fit for metal roofing options.
- Safe and Sturdy – The most obvious concern for many is having what is essentially a sheet of metal on your roof. It doesn’t seem safe when storm season comes around. However, metal roofing materials aren’t often struck and actually dissipate lightning strikes better than shingles. What you are getting instead is the sturdiest roof you will ever have. Metal roofing endures wind, hail, and everything else with ease while lasting twice as long as shingles.
- A Complimentary Aesthetic – Asphalt shingles only come in so many colors and designs, but metal roofing has a variety of style options. If you want to make a statement with your roof, it is possible. However, as it lasts for much longer than shingles, you will want to make it a style you want to have for a long time.
- The Cost – The only real negative consideration with metal roof is the cost of it. It will cost more than other options, but it is worth it. It is less likely to leak, lasts much longer, and has fire and weather resistance in spades.
