Metal Roofing Cost
While you compare Metal vs. Asphalt/fiberglass cost, we recommend dividing the installation cost in 60 years. Yes, 60 years!
As a premium product, metal roofs are expensive as compared to fiberglass and asphalt shingles. At the same time, they are way cheaper than high-end shingles available today. Plus, the metal roofing system is better than asphalt and fiberglass alternatives, in many ways.
Metal Roofing Benefits
Even if it’s not the case, metal roofs have so many reasons to hold their place in your home or building.
Metal Roofing Rusting and Color-fading
You can install steel roofs with galvalume coating – thick layers of polymer and metallic coating to guard against rusting. Other metal coatings also exist but they’re not as efficient and cost-effective. A galvalume coated roof has a life expectancy of 50 years.
As far as color fading is concerned, metallic coated roofs have excellent weathering properties, especially against rain, snow or hail. The original color seems to fade with time, but that’s just due to dirt and dust deposition on the surface. You can apply water to remove this contamination and restore its original color.
For reroofing, nothing compares to metal roofs, because of the strength and weathering properties. In fact, the need for metal reroofing has increased to three times (from 4% to 12%) in 15 years.
