Traditional asphalt shingles are often the first thing that comes to mind when people think of roofs, even though metal roofs started popping up in the 1850s. However, the popularity of metal roofs on residential houses, especially in the mid- and west-central Ohio areas, continues to grow year over year. But why is that? Well, let’s break it down a bit.
Metal roofs typically cost quite a bit more upfront than traditional asphalt roofs. Not only are the roof materials more expensive, but the actual installation typically costs more as well.
However, when you consider the fact that a metal roof can potentially last the length of your home owning lifetime–whereas you may have to change an asphalt roof two to three times over that same time span–it’s easy to see that the initial higher cost with installing a metal roof is made up in the long run; the longevity of a metal roof allows you to recoup the additional cost of installing it.
Also, metal roofs will actually save you money on your home energy costs. These types of roofs are considered by many as the most energy-efficient materials on the market, and can save homeowners up to 40% on their energy bills once installed.
Investing in your roof is one of the wisest decisions you can make. From weather to insects to tree branches, your roof protects everything inside your home that’s most dear. To pay thousands of dollars for your home and then not invest in the best protection of that home is a recipe for disaster.
