Are Metal Roofs More Expensive?
Cost is one of the most important factors for determining your roof choice. After all, you have a household budget that you have to stick to. While any roofing system’s costs are determined by various factors such as size, pitch, and complexity (how many valleys and ridges you have, skylights, chimneys, etc.), metal roofs simply cost more than asphalt shingles. They are typically equivalent with tile roofing systems in terms of cost.
However, when you’re considering a metal roof installation, it’s important to consider longevity. As we said above, the life of a metal roof is much longer than standard asphalt shingles. As such, you may be able to offset some of the original costs by a longer life span of your new roof.
How Durable Are Metal Roofs?
If you live in an area that experiences a consistent amount of hail, then the durability of your roof is likely a major consideration.

When it comes to intense sunlight, metal roofs don’t degrade and modern systems are even designed to reflect sunlight, keeping your home cooler during the blistering heat of the summer months.
