Discover the Benefits of Metal Roofs

Metal Roofs – Your Permanent Roofing Solution in Wisconsin
Thursday, August 26th, 2010

Considering the pros and cons of a metal roof vs. shingles for your home, business or other property in southern Wisconsin?  Then, look no further.  Metal Roofing Systems serves Milwaukee, Madison, WI, and towns throughout southern Wisconsin.  We offer a variety of permanent metal roofing systems that will last at least 100 years – with a lifetime warranty.

However, we realize that deciding on a less expensive asphalt shingle and wood-frame roof or a more expensive, longer-lasting metal roofing system is a major decision for homeowners, business owners, or for church boards or houses of worship, particularly when considering life-cycle costs.  That is why we are available for consultation on the general requirements of roofs on properties throughout the region.

Metal Roofing Systems vs. Asphalt Shingles

Metal Roofing Systems provides a variety of styles of metal and aluminum sheet metal roofing to match the styles of older homes, country styles, and contemporary designs.   We believe that the advantages of permanent, energy-efficient, environmentally friendly roofing outweigh the lower initial costs of a one-time asphalt roof installation.  Here are a few of the reasons:

  • Although shingles are considerably less expensive than metal roofing, asphalt shingles will need to be replaced and the roof repaired – industry estimates for the life of a shingle roof are anywhere from 12-17 years (some businesses claim 40 years, but their products have not had the time to prove that)
  • Asphalt shingle roofs need to be entirely replaced about every two decades
  • Metal roofing is permanent, guaranteed to last (even in the extreme weather conditions of Wisconsin) for at least 100 years
  • Integrated, locked metal sheeting in the roofs are leak-proof, extremely durable and can easily withstand hail up to 1″ (highest impact resistance rating available), and withstand hurricane category winds and straight-line winds
  • Metal roofs are environmentally-friendly, generally reducing cooling bills by at least 20%, roofing materials are reflective
  • Unlike shingle roofs, metal roofs do not wind up in a landfill and are recyclable; petroleum-based shingles are a biodegradable problem and an environmentally-unfriendly roofing solution
  • Metal roofs are as or more attractive than shingle roofs
  • Metal roofs are available in a wide range of styles to suite your taste and architecture
