31 Mar Metal Roofs That Look Like Wood or Asphalt…Only Better
Metal roofing systems have a come a long way in recent years. Whether you’re on the fence about look of metal because you prefer the rustic look of wood or traditional asphalt, consider a few reasons why metal roofs stand out from the rest.
- Metal shingles come in an enormous variety of styles, textures, and colors. If you love the look of wood but dread the upkeep its relatively short life requires, you’re in luck. From cedar shingles and country manor shakes to slate shingles or barrel tile, all of the classics are now masterfully mimicked with metal.
- Metal roofs are extremely sturdy, with an incredible lifespan of up to 100 years in some cases. Decorative metal roofs require little to no maintenance, are wind-resistant and despite popular belief, are often much quieter than other roof types during rain storms.
- Metal is surprisingly the lightest of all roofing materials – even lighter than asphalt shingles. You can enjoy the look of tile shingles without the weight.
- Metal roofs are eco-friendly. Metal roofing materials are actually recycled and recyclable.
