What Makes a Metal Roof So Durable?
On average and with good maintenance, metal roofs have a lifespan of 60 years. The design and installation processes for metal roofing, as well as the characteristics of the material itself, contribute to this durability.
Unlike other materials, metal (like steel) is resistant to cracking, shrinking, and eroding. It can also withstand extreme weather conditions, like winds up to 140 mph, heavy snow, hail, and even wildfires. Surprisingly, despite this durability, metal roofs are often lighter than asphalt, and this allows them to be installed on top of existing Alabama roofs.

Did you know that conventional roofing products result in an estimated 7 to 10 million tons of scrap waste in U.S. landfills every year, with another million tons of waste generated during manufacturing? Since metal roofing can be made from recyclable materials and can be installed over an existing Alabama roof, choosing metal roofing can help reduce this waste production. Additionally, many residential metal roofs utilize pigmented technology, which improves home energy efficiency and reduces utility bills. Overall, metal roofing is a great choice that is easy on your wallet and the environment.
