Composition or metal roofing-how do they compare?
I recently was speaking with a roofer and we got on the subject of metal roofs and how they compare. Here is the information that I took away. Maybe there are others like me, that might find this useful. 🙂
Decent metal roofing will cost approximately 2-3 times the cost of composition roof
Composition roofs have an average lifespan of 20-30 years
Metal roofs can last 40 years and up
Metals roofs hold up well under the elements and have a longer life span. The can be made from galvanized steel, copper, aluminum, iron, or stainless steel.
Metal roofs can be installed over certain roofing materials therefore alleviating the need to remove and dispose of the old roofing materials.
Prices vary depending on the area which you live.
