Austin Roofing Tip of the Month: Choosing between Metal Roof and Asphalt Shingles

Home is where someone feels the safest and where he spends most of his time. We all want to make sure that our home stays on its prime condition to guarantee that it can protect us. Our roof provides us with protection against weather and environmental element. However, not all of us will pay attention to the condition of it. Once the roof has been damaged, the entire structure can possibly be damaged.

Pros and Cons of Metal Roof and Asphalt Shingles

Most homeowners will be indecisive with regards to the type of materials they will use for their roofing system. Usually, they know little to nothing about the different materials available. Therefore, it will not be rare for them to create some bad decision. To help them choose the better option, we created a short comparison of two of the most preferred materials; asphalt shingles and metal roof.

DIY Installation

Most of us will choose the material depending on the complexity of the installation. We all know that hiring the experts to install your roof can greatly increase the overall cost. Nonetheless, you may want to make this extra investment to ensure that your roof is appropriately installed. However, if you are still adamant in completing a DIY roof project you will be surprised that most metal materials are lightweight that makes it easy to handle them. However, installation of metal roofing materials is often complex. It requires plywood framing and underlayment. You can also be injured if you mishandled the material. Asphalt shingles are easy to install. Unfortunately, your warranties will be void if you choose a DIY installation.


Another factor that you need to consider when choosing the material would be its lifespan. If the materials have been installed properly, you will be able to enjoy the functionality and efficiency of the roof during its maximum lifespan. Metal is durable and can last up to 70 years. Even if you plan to move to a new house after a couple of years, metal roofing can greatly increase the value of your property. Asphalt shingles on the other hand can only last for 20 years. There are laminated options that can last longer.

Energy Efficiency

Metal roofs are energy efficient. They are effective in reducing your monthly energy consumption during a hot summer day. They are manufactured using recycled materials. However, once the material has been installed improperly, the energy efficiency of the metal roof will not be as high as expected. Asphalt shingles are known for absorbing heat that will keep your house warm during winter. Sadly, this feature may be treated as a disadvantage during summer. After the lifespan has been exhausted, the product will usually end up in the landfill.

Finally, you also need to consider the weight of the materials and its resistance against different elements. Once you are aware of these properties, you will be able to make a better and smarter decision. You can rest assure that you are investing your money on the right roofing material.
