This may seem almost counter intuitive; at first, it is obvious that the initial price for a metal roof is higher than that of the asphalt roof. But that is only the first impression, and first impressions can sometimes be wrong. Consider that the average life expectancy of today’s asphalt roof is around 10 to 20 years. That’s a lifespan of 20 years at best, and under mild climate conditions. Asphalt shingle roofs presents a typical mass produced building product that everyone seems to go for. Because of the demand, crews don’t always adhere to the installation standards and rush through the shingling process t get to the next job as quick as they can. The end result may be an inferior installation, and a much shorter lifespan that will require costly repairs and unnecessary headache. Even if installation was performed by a qualified crew, severe storms and tough climate will significantly shorten the lifespan of even the best installed asphalt shingle roof by washing out the small particles that give asphalt shingles their waterproof qualities. As soon as asphalt roof is exposed to the elements, it begins to deteriorate and lose its water-proofing ability in proportion to the severity of the local climate. As an example, consider the elements your roof is exposed to in the Midwest climate. Here in the states of Texas and Illinois, our roofs are exposed to a lot of rain, hail and wind, severe winters cover roofs with snow and ice that beat hard on the asphalt roofs. Summer comes and our roofs are exposed to extreme sun and heat. Asphalt roofs are prone to breaking down in these tough climate changes and as a result they may start leaking prematurely needing repair or replacement. Metal roofing, on the other hand, feels at ease with snow and ice which simply melts and slides down from the metal roof. Metal laughs at severe storms and heavy rains. Metal roofs offer superb, price effective longevity that no other roof does. A properly installed metal roof will last a lifetime and easily pay for itself two and three time over.
