How long does a metal roof last?

Some metal roofs come with warranties of up to 50 years, but can literally last for hundreds of years, whereas traditional roofs typically last 10 to 20 years.

How are metal roofs better than traditional roofing options?

There are several benefits to having a metal roof. Here are just a few to consider.

Energy Efficient

Your roof is often the least energy efficient part of your home. Heating and cooling typically consume about 30% of your home’s energy, and half of that results from heated or cooled air lost through the roof. Metal roofs reflect the sun, which reduces the amount of heat penetrating the home. A reflective roof can reduce peak cooling demand by 10 to 15 percent, according to the Dept. of Energy. Some metal roofs can save up to 25 percent in energy costs, according to the DOE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL).


Some metal roofs come with warranties of up to 50 years, but can literally last for hundreds of years, whereas traditional roofs typically last 10 to 20 years.


Metal roofs aren’t as vulnerable to hail, wind and fire damage and some insurance companies even offer discounts on homeowner’s policies due to metal’s storm-resistant properties.


Metal roofs are practically fire proof, and will not support or spread a fire to other parts of the house, a permanent roof can preserve the integrity of your roof longer to allow a safe escape.

How will a metal roof affect my energy costs?

Metal roofs can lower your heating bills. However, if your home has inadequate insulation, air leaks and windows that are not energy efficient, installing a metal roof will not likely lower your heating bills. It is important to remember there are many factors that contribute to your home’s overall energy usage. Many of our metal roofing products are Energy Star® rated.

What maintenance will a metal roof require?

One of the benefits of installing a metal roof on a structure is the low maintenance required to ensure a long life for the roof. Maintaining a metal roof is easy, as metal roofing is often referred to as maintenance-free. In most cases a metal roof would retain structural integrity, remain leak-free, and look good for at least the life of the product warranty even without any maintenance.

What style and color options are available on a metal roof?

Steel is the most common material for metal roofing panels. Click here for our colors and panel descriptions.

What is Core Ten (TM) weathering steel?

Core Ten weathering steel is popular among architects for it’s rusty appearance, which is caused by the actual rusting of the metal. Once the rusting starts, the metal begins to develop an orange patina, which over time can become a dark brownish color. On thick 22 gauge weathering steel panels, this corrosion can act as a protective layer preventing further corrosion. Weathering steel is aesthetically pleasing, and provides a natural-looking patina in an ultra low-gloss finish once the rusting has coated the entire fabricated metal. It is exciting to watch the transformation over time!
