Benefits of Metal Roofing

Metal roofing has long been a common choice for businesses and commercial properties. Now it’s becoming one of the more popular roofing options for homeowners looking for a new roof as well. If you’re considering having a metal roof installed on your New England home but aren’t sure if it’s right for your needs, here are some things for you to consider.

Other Roofing Options

Before choosing a metal roof for your roof replacement, you should consider the other options available to you. For New England homeowners, some popular roofing materials include:

Asphalt Shingles

Traditional asphalt shingles are the most common roofing material sold today, as they’re attractive, affordable, and have a lifespan of more than 20 years. Asphalt shingle roofs also come with generous warranties, which makes them an even more attractive option. The shingles are made with an underside of black asphalt, which becomes sticky when heated by the sun, creating a waterproof barrier.

Ceramic Tiles

Clay tile roofs typically cost two to three times more than asphalt shingle roofs, and they’re difficult to install, so you need an experienced roofing contractor for the project. Ceramic tiles are extremely durable, though they can be damaged if they’re impacted by falling tree branches.

Architectural Shingles

Heavy-duty architectural shingles are similar to standard asphalt shingles but are up to three times thicker, so they can stand up to tougher weather conditions. They’re also more attractive and can mimic wood, slate, and tile.


A slate roof will last a lifetime, resists fire and water damage, and is extremely durable. The downsides are that it is extremely expensive, it’s heavy and difficult to install, and it can break when stepped on or impacted by hail.

Why is Metal a Better Option?

One of the best ways to tout some of the advantages of metal roofing materials is to dispel some of the myths that detract from its reputation:

  • It’s too heavy – Metal roofs are much lighter than other roofing options. A typical metal roof is about 50% lighter than a traditional asphalt shingle roof and 75% lighter than a tile or slate roof, so it’s much easier to install.
  • It’s noisy – Today’s metal roofing products come with sheathing and insulation that work to diminish sound. This makes them as quiet as a typical asphalt shingle roof.
  • It will hurt your home’s energy efficiency – Metal roofs reflect the light of the sun away, and they also emit any heat that hits them almost immediately. What this means for your home’s energy efficiency is that a metal roof can greatly reduce attic temperatures, making it easier for your HVAC system to do its job. This also saves you on your energy costs. 
  • It’s unattractive – Metal roofing has come a long way in terms of design, so you can now select from an array of styles and colors to suit your preferences and complement your home.

Other Metal Roofing Benefits

Now that we’ve cleared up some misconceptions, it’s time to talk about the benefits of a metal roof installing metal roofing an attractive option for replacing your existing roof:


This is where metal roofing distinguishes itself from other popular options. When you have a properly installed metal roof on your New England home, you can expect it to provide reliable protection for a lifespan of up to 50 years. So it might be the last roof you ever pay for.

Weather Resistance

Metal roofs can handle about anything Mother Nature throws at them, including hailstorms, snow, flying debris, high winds, and other extreme weather.

Rain & Snow Shedding

Metal roofs have a hard and slippery surface, so they shed water and snow faster. There’s also nowhere for moisture to be absorbed, so they dry faster as well.

Environmental Friendliness

Metal roofs are recyclable. When they’ve ultimately outlived their life expectancy, the materials can be repurposed into a new sheet of metal for use in other products. By comparison, billions of pounds of asphalt shingles end up in landfills every year. This sustainability makes metal roofing an eco-friendly option for your roof replacement.
