According to the Old House Journal, metal roofing systems lost popularity in the 1920s because of a new roofing material, asphalt shingles, offering a wider range of shapes and colors than metal roofing. But this isn't the 1920s. Today's metal selections rival the options of asphalt shingles and have still retained their other, more practical benefits.
Here are just a few lessons about metal roofing that we've learned over the last 95 years:
Copper roofing, for instance, has proved to last centuries, though it's hardly the most affordable option. Galvanized steel is another great choice for longevity, with a use-life of up to 60 years.
From thin tin to decorative aluminum, metal roofing now offers a wider selection than the asphalt shingles responsible for nearly pushing the product line out of existence a century ago. Your business can retain its professional look while experiencing all the benefits this material offers.
Because of this ease, metal roofing costs less. If you're looking for a cheaper roofing replacement, metal is the way to go.
There's no denying the durability and inherent safety that comes with choosing metal roofing over asphalt shingles.
