Metal roofs are not like they use to be. The old tin looking metal roof that was on your grandfather’s barn is a lot different from the current metal roofs on the market. Modern metal roofs come in an array of colors, and various styles to fulfill any homeowner’s needs. You can get a metal roof shingle that resembles the look of Cedar Shake, Clay Tile, or Slate.

Metal roofs are one of the most long lasting roofing options on the market. They offer more protection to the structure below and are a great option for someone who plans on owning their home for a long while. Most metal roofing system comes with manufacturer warranties of around 50 years. If installed properly, fifty years is a very realistic time frame for a metal roofing system’s lifespan.

Asphalt shingles provide plenty of protection for your roof, but did you know that they start losing their granules as soon as they are exposed to nature’s elements? Dallas roofing systems are exposed to all kinds of harsh elements, extreme heat, strong rains, hail, and even snow. A metal roof provides much more protection than an asphalt shingle.
