Does a metal roof cost more than the average roof?
Because metal roofing is a superior, durable roofing material, you can expect a new metal roof to cost roughly 2 - 3x what a traditional asphalt shingle roof costs. However, a metal roof is comparable in price to tile roofing or cedar shake roofing. If you currently have a slate roof, you can expect your metal roof to cost less.
Regardless of the style of metal roof you choose, you'll barely have to worry about your roof again since a majority of metal roofs come with a 50-year warranty.
There are a number of other advantages to a metal roof, like:
- increase the resale value of your home
- save you money on your energy bills
- give you peace of mind that you'll likely never have to re-roof again
Does a metal roof withstand severe weather well?
Yes, a metal roof can hold up to years of weather abuse, like heavy snow, hail, high winds, and wildfires, too.
Wind: Most metal roofing has a 140-mph wind rating, which means it can endure wind gusts up to 140 miles per hour.
Snow: In areas with excessive snow, metal roofing is a great roofing choice for homeowners. With its quick-shedding properties, the structural integrity of the roof is protected.
Fire: If you live in a part of the country where wildfires occur, metal roofing can protect your home in the event that burning embers fall on your roof.
