If you are planning on roofing, consider a metal roof over asphalt shingles. Metal roofing systems are permanent, and once installed, the metal sections are leak-proof. Consider all of your options when comparing traditional roofing, asphalt shingles to metal roofing when you have to repair or replace a roof.
Metal Roofing Systems installs metal roofs on residences, commercial flat roofs, and for churches or houses of worship. Be sure to take advantage of the federal tax credit for energy efficient roofing that expires this year.
What Are the Advantages of a Metal Roof?
There are a number of advantages of a metal roof over asphalt shingles. Our professional installation of roofing can add decades to the life of your home or other structure. Some of the advantages include:
Convenience – we actually install a metal roof over asphalt shingles and wood frame roofs in most cases – the condition of the roof and local ordinances are the main factors that may prevent such installation, in that case you will receive an estimate for removing the original roof and the installing a metal roofing system
Permanence – our roofing systems will last for at least 100 years; so, whether you are leaving a home as an inheritance, or a church as a legacy to later congregations, you can expect our metal roofs to last for the next generation
Weather Resistance – our metal roofs provide a permanent barrier to weather conditions:
- Metal roofing is leak-proof; the overlapping panels are integrated with the next panel and sealed upon completion of the installation
- Wind resistant – lab-tested to withstand 120 mph winds and design specifications to withstand up to 200 mph winds – unless you have a direct hit by a tornado, you should never have to worry about the wind causing direct damage to the roof
- Energy efficiency – our metal roofs are reflective, some customers have reduced overall cooling bills by as much as 25%
- Our metal roofs can easily withstand hail up to 1″ – in fact, our systems have the highest hail impact test ratings

Attractive Styles – metal roofing systems come in a wide range of styles to fit almost any kind of architecture – Review our Photo Gallery to view some of the attractive styles of metal roofing
Expense – although asphalt shingle roofs are less expensive, unlike metal roofs, you have to replace shingles, make repairs, and usually replace the entire roof once every 15 to 20 years; when you consider the cost replacing a roof periodically, our permanent systems quickly become the better, more economical choice
