Metal roofs can last up to 50 years in the Davenport, FL area, compared to the 15-25 year average lifespan of a shingle roof.
Over the past decade, more and more property owners are choosing metal roofs for their homes. A metal roof comes with a number of benefits, so if you are considering replacing your roof or are building a new home or office building and need to select a type of roof for the structure, you might want to think about this choice. The most common materials used for metal roofs include aluminum, copper, steel, and lead. If you choose lead or a copper-blend (typically mixed with asphalt), these materials often come in shingle form so the roof might look similar to those with asphalt shingles. Other types of metal can be installed seamlessly and soldered together.
One of the major benefits of a metal roof is its durability. Metal roofs can last up to 50 years, compared to the 15-25 year average lifespan of a shingle roof. Additionally, metal is fire resistant, and the interlocking panels can provide improved resistance to wind. Here in Davenport, Florida, we experience warm temperatures throughout much of the year, so it may be especially interesting to note that a metal roof can improve energy efficiency by keeping your home at a lower temperature.
It might seem like a metal roof would be heavy, but it is actually one of the lightest materials used to build a roof. This can help to preserve its structural integrity. One thing to consider is that metal roofs are quite a bit more expensive than shingles or other materials, but they are extremely durable.
