Metal Roofing Installation by Expert Roofers
What are the benefits of metal roofing?
There are a lot of benefits to installing metal roofs. Metal roofing is durable and can keep the home cool, making them a more appealing option for homeowners. When you weigh the pros and cons, metal roofs offer advantages that other types of roofing do not.
In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, metal roofs are durable and long-lasting, which is especially a much-desired quality when deciding to install a metal roof in Northeast Ohio.
Metal roofing is best for storm-prone regions and low-pitched roofs, as well as the environment. Our metal roof holds a Class A fire rating. They are also a quicker alternative to other roofing materials, as they are made with wide panels that install quickly.
When something goes missing or is damaged, the roofer would be able to repair it at a relatively quicker pace than what an asphalt shingle roof takes.

Does a metal roof cost more that a normal roof?
Because metal roofing is a premium home product, you can expect your new roof to cost roughly two to three times what an asphalt shingle roof costs. However, a metal roof is comparable in price to tile roofing or cedar shake roofing. If you currently have a slate roof, you can expect your metal roof to cost less.
No matter what kind of metal roofing style you choose, you’ll never have to worry about your roof again. Most come with a true 30 to 50 year warranty. Plus, your new metal roof will add to the resale value of your home, save you money on your energy bills, and give you peace of mind that you’ll likely never have to re-roof again.
I’m concerned that a metal roof wont match my home or style in my neighborhood
Today’s residential metal roofing is made to look like common roofing material – such as asphalt shingle, cedar shake, clay tile or slate roofing – only stronger and more durable. Click here to see metal roofing’s wide variety of styles, colors and patterns – there’s certain to be a style and finish to match your home and neighborhood.
How much longer will a metal roof last?
You can expect a metal roof to last at least 2 to 3 times longer than a regular roof. In general terms, count on a metal roof lasting 30 to 50+ years since metal roofs can often be repainted versus replaced.
To put it in context, the average lifespan of an asphalt roof is 12 to 20 years. That lifespan can be shorter depending on the pitch of your roof and the climate in your area. Made of oil impregnated paper or fiberglass, asphalt begins to deteriorate as soon as you expose it to normal weather. A metal roof, however, will never decompose.
Other roofing materials like wood shingle, shake and tile have varying degrees of weather-related problems that lead to breakdown. Wood shingle and shake roofs often need replacement before twenty years. Concrete tile roofs can crack and warp in the freeze/thaw cycle of more northern climates.
All of the above roofing materials are well-outlasted by metal roofing, which retains its good looks and durability decade after decade after decade.
Is metal roofing noisier in bad weather ?
People think metal roofs make noise when it rains because of the unfortunate image of an old, rusty tin roof. Contrary to popular belief, most metal roofs are installed over plywood or your existing roof, making them no louder than a traditional asphalt-shingled roof. Normal attic insulation also absorbs most of the sound.
Metal roofs are the most expensive type of roof installation, but they offer so many long-term benefits, such as making repairing and replacing your roof less costly. Rather than paying more money for repairs, you will save money with a metal roof even though the initial investment is high. Metal roofs also help you save on energy costs for your home, which saves you money for years to come.
