When comparing roofing materials, metal wins on the longevity front. Most metal roofs will last a lifetime, even though they are usually warrantied for 50 years. Asphalt shingles typically need replaced every 25-30 years or so. While metal roofing is a larger expense upfront than asphalt shingles, when you spread the cost over the life of the material, a metal roof could end up being less expensive in the long run.
2. Metal is Extremely Durable.
When it comes to durability, you can trust a metal roof to hold up. Metal roofing can withstand harsh weather conditions better than other types of roofing material. Some metal roofs can sustain wind gusts up to 140 miles per hour, and some metals are even impact-resistant.
3. Metal is Practically Maintenance Free.
Unlike many other roofing materials, metal roofs are practically maintenance-free. Therefore, you'll save money on the upkeep. That savings could offset the upfront difference you pay for the metal roofing compared to other materials. However, just because they don't need as much regular maintenance, doesn't mean they don't require regular roof inspections by a roofing professional at the Lake of the Ozarks.

4. Metal Can Reduce Your Energy Usage.
Installing a metal roof could save you up to 25% on your cooling costs compared to asphalt shingles. This is due to the fact that metal roofs reflect sunlight, reducing your attic and overall roof temperatures. This can reduce your cooling costs during the hotter months.
