How long does it take to replace a roof?

For average-sized homes, asphalt shingle roof replacements typically take 1-2 days. Metal roof replacements may take 2-4 days. This timeline is weather-dependent, so there may be delays in the instance of inclement weather.

Does a metal roof cost more than a typical roof?

Because metal roofing is a premium home product, your new roof will likely cost double or triple the price of an asphalt shingle roof. On the other hand, a metal roof is equivalent in price to tile or cedar shake roofing. You can expect your metal roof to cost less if you already have an existing slate roof.

You will never need to worry about your roof again, no matter what type of metal roofing you choose. Almost every metal roofing comes with a genuine 30 to 50-year warranty. Additionally, it will increase the resale value of your home, reduce the cost of energy bills, and assures you that you will likely never have to re-roof again.

What material options do I have with a metal roof?

There are many metal roofing options available and among them are the three most popular being copper, aluminum, and galvalume steel. Copper may cost a premium, but it makes for a beautiful and long-lasting material for your roof. The most economical is aluminum, but it is also the least rugged.

If you want a robust and rugged roofing material that is more affordable than copper, you should opt for galvalume steel.

Does a metal roof make your house hotter?

It is the other way around. A high-quality metal roof cools down your house because it consists of a reflective coating that bounces the heat from the sun away from your home. They may save your energy bills by up to 20% a year and lower the temperature in your attic. On the other hand, asphalt shingles make your home hotter, especially during summer.

How long will a metal roof last?

With a sound paint/protection system, a metal substrate should last you an entire lifetime. Over time, some metals may require refinishing. Most metal roof problems are caused by poor artistry rather than the product itself.

Are metal roofs environmentally friendly?

Definitely! Metal reflects solar radiation better than other roofing materials, allowing your property to stay cooler in the summer. If you’re looking for more methods to reduce energy consumption, metal roofs make an excellent foundation for solar panel installation. Additionally, metal roofing uses recycled materials to some extent, and the roof itself is nearly 100 percent recyclable. It is considered one of the “greenest” roofs in the market.

What will happen to a metal roof in a lightning storm?

Despite what you’ve seen in the movies, aluminum roofs do not draw lightning. You never have to worry about your house, even in the presence of the fiercest electrical storm.
