In the past metal roofs were usually used for commercial businesses and warehouses that had a lot of surface to cover. Now days people are using them for residential purposes, and the trend is still rising.
Why Choose Metal?
Why is metal roofing becoming such a trend? Probably the most common reason is because homeowners get frustrated after having to re-shingle their roofs after eight to sixteen years. That frustration leads them into looking for a longer lasting alternative.
Although a metal roof will last longer then an asphalt shingle roof, it is going to empty your pocket book a little more. The cost of a metal roof is quite a bit more then that of a traditional asphalt shingle roof. On the bright side, a metal roof on your home may be able to get your insurance reduced.
