Metal vs Shingle

Why choose a metal roof?

Shingle roofs are far more common, but today’s metal roofs are attractive, come in a variety of colors and have several advantages over shingle roofs.

Metal roofs are cost effective

We manufacture the materials for your metal roof in-house, allowing us to keep your cost much lower than our competition. How does this help you? You can have a durable metal roof for the same price as a shingle roof, yet your new metal roof will last twice as long as a shingle roof. You may replace your roof only once in your lifetime with a Brightside metal roof!

You also will realize savings on utility bills. Metal roofs reflect heat away from your home, making it easier to keep cool during the hot summer. Does this mean higher heating costs since your metal roof is not absorbing the winter sun? No. A properly insulated metal roof will actually keep your home warmer in the winter.

Metal roofs are more durable in harsh weather

Extreme temperatures, wind, ice, and hail, all can take a toll on your roof. Over years of testing, results show that in all of these conditions, metal roofs resist damage more consistently than shingle roofs, needing far fewer repairs.

Check with your insurance company. You may save some money on your premiums based on the high rating of your new metal roof.

Metal roofs are better for the environment

In this era of environmental consciousness, it’s important to note that most metal roofs are produced using at least some recycled materials, and in some cases, as much as 90%. When you consider the lifespan of a metal roof, and the fact that once exhausted, the materials themselves are completely recyclable, a metal roof is truly environmentally responsible, compared to asphalt shingle roofs, most of which are heading to landfills every 20 or so years.
