In this blog, we’re going to place the focus on metal roofing and let our readers know a few pros and cons of this type of material…


  • When they are correctly installed, a metal roof has a fairly high life expectancy. In fact, some say they can even last as long as a house itself before it will need replacing. Being able to withstand high winds, heavy snowfall and water sneaking into the property is an obvious bonus when it comes to a lifelong investment.


  • Many people presume that because the roofing is made from metal that it will be very heavy however it is a fairly lightweight material, especially when compared to tile.


  • The biggest drawback of a metal roof is the initial upfront cost, however many buyers tend to consider it an investment for the future. Metal roofs are especially beneficial if you have no plans to move house in the future or are operating a business inside an industrial building and want to invest in the building itself.
