Asphalt shingles vs. metal shingles

Asphalt shingles were the old way, and metal roofing is the new way! With asphalt shingles, you get the danger of fly-by-night contractors who won’t be in business five years from now when they start to leak. Asphalt roofs are prone to mold, water damage, and clogging your gutters. In contrast, metal roofing provides a sustainable, environmentally friendly alternative to asphalt shingles, increasing your resale value and giving you peace of mind.

Metal roofs are made to be a once-in-a-lifetime investment for your home. We know you shouldn’t have to worry about replacing your roof every 10-20 years. It should be a one-and-done sort of thing.

Metal roofs reduce your energy consumption because they insulate better in the winter and reflect heat better in the summer than traditional asphalt counterparts.

Our roofing products are made of recycled material, which is both good for the environment and for your wallet.

Metal roofs are nearly disaster proof. They get a “Class A” fire rating and they’re guaranteed against winds up to 160 mph — which is faster than we should ever see here in western New York. They also have a Class 4 impact resistance rating, meaning that tree limbs are no match for your roof.

Finally, ice, rain, and snow will all slide off of your roof with ease. Your roof will be the first in the block to be clear of that dangerous heavy load, and best of all, you won’t need to call a contractor because your roof is leaking!

What happens when you use asphalt instead of metal?

Unfortunately, traditional asphalt roofs are riddled with problems. They peel and crack long before they should. They lose rocks over time, clogging your gutters and costing your money.

Manufacturers are really picky about which asphalt roofs they’ll guarantee, because installation of these roofs is tricky and can often result in disaster. Manufacturers will not guarantee your asphalt roof if it’s not vented properly, or even if the nails are out of place. Traditional roof manufacturers will try their hardest to make you install a new roof instead of fixing their damaged products. You shouldn’t pay thousands of dollars for a product that will burn, crack, peel, curl, and fall apart well before its time.

Finally, asphalt roofs are the prime choice of fly-by-night contractors. Those budding businessmen don’t know the first thing about installing a roof properly, and they’ll be out of business long before you realize that there’s a problem with your brand new roof. If we had $20 for every time a homeowner called us to help fix brand-new asphalt roofs, we wouldn’t need to keep roofing! Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you might have about your next roof — we’ll make sure that your metal roof is perfect!
