Well, for a start metal roofs are much stronger and more durable than asphalt shingle. A traditional asphalt roof will need reproofing every 10-20 years, but metal roofs can often lasting for twice as long, so offering you the home owner, significant savings of both time and money spent on roof repairs or replacement.

The exterior coating applied to the surface of the metal also makes a difference to the lasting appearance of your roof. And in this area, it is not the case that all metal roofs are equal.

How ever this is only a problem when the roof has been poorly installed and really just highlights the importance of using a recommended installation company.
