Because a metal roof is a premium roof, the initial investment in a metal roof will cost more - maybe twice that of a standard asphalt shingle roof. However, in the long run, because of no maintenance or replacement costs, a metal roof can end up costing less.
Steel roofs do not attract lightning, but they - just like everything else - can be hit by lightning. But should lightning strike, a steel roof may be safer for your house. A metal roof will help conduct and dissipate the electrical charge. Also, since a steel roof is non-combustible, if it were hit, there is less danger of fire.
Metal roofs have performed and been proven superior in all kinds of climates and conditions. From Florida hurricanes, California wildfires, Northern states snowfall, and the Central states tornadoes and hailstorms, metal roofing can withstand decades of abuse.
Metal roofs are considered to be a permanent roof system. You can expect your metal roof to last 2-3 times longer than a regular roof. In general, a metal roof can last 40 to 60 years and beyond.
In applications over asphalt, some metal roofs can be installed directly over the old roof, saving money and landfill space. However, for standing seam roofs in areas where hail is prevalent, we recommend that the panels be installed directly on a solid substrate with a quality underlayment. This process will give you the greatest protection against cosmetic damage.
Unlike other roofing products that typically hold heat that radiates into the house, metal roofs can actually reflect heat away from the house helping to keep your home cooler in the summer.
