Metal vs. Shingle Roofing

metal vs shingle roofs
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.

The Choice of Today’s Contractors

New construction homes of today are still , more then likely, going to have asphalt shingle roofs on them. Shingles are still the first choice for Idaho Falls Roofing Contractors and builders. The installation is also a little easier seeing as how you dont have to cut big sheets of metal.

We still believe that asphalt is a valid choice for your roof. For the price and the length of time shingles keep your home safe from the elements of nature it is an efficient choice.
