Length in Years

A metal roof will definitely last much longer than traditional shingles because it’s more durable and can withstand weather much better.


Speaking of weather, your metal roof is created to get through storms that include rain, sleet and heavy amounts of water. However, the more it’s exposed to the elements, the more quickly it will wear out and need to be replaced.

Some seasons are worse than others and making sure you execute proper maintenance year round can help protect it for longer. We can help you with some easy tips and advice for making your roof last as long as possible.

Materials Chosen
