5. Sustainability of Metal

Metal is a sustainable and durable alternative to asphalt or cedar. Metal roofs can last at least three times as long as asphalt shingles, without requiring as much maintenance. At least 30 percent of the material that is used to create a metal roof has been previously recycled. Some metal roofs are made of 100 percent recycled content. — This, coupled with the superior durability and long lifespan, makes metal an environmentally friendly roofing option. All metal roofs can be fully recycled at the end of their service life.

In fact, most homeowners who choose to install a metal roof on their home will never have to think about re-roofing again. If you are a homeowner considering installing a new metal roof on your house, then undoubtedly, one of the burning questions on your mind is how much will it cost?

Verdict: a metal roof will likely prove to be the most cost-effective roofing choice when viewed over a long-enough timeframe and through a lens of a long-term investment in the roof’s durability and longevity, improving the home’s overall curb appeal, and benefiting financially from the greatly improved energy efficiency of a metal roof.
