Longevity - Metal roofing can last 40-70 years, depending on the material. Traditional asphalt roofing materials have an estimated life expectancy of roughly 12-20 years.
Durability & Safety - Metal roofs can sustain wind gusts up to 140 miles per hour. They will not corrode or crack, and are often impact-resistant (depending on which metal you choose). A metal roof does not require yearly inspections. Metal roofs will not spark and ignite into flames during a wildfire or lightning strike.
Environmentally Friendly - A metal roof reflects heat, which can reduce cooling costs. Metal roofs not only have 25-95% recycled content, depending on the material used, but are also 100% recyclable at the end of their life as a roof. In contrast, most shingle tear-off waste ends up as part of the building-related waste stream — up to 20 billion pounds per year.
