Asphalt Shingles vs. Metal Roofing

Even though fiberglass-based asphalt shingles are easily the most popular roofing material used in the United States, many people opt for a variety of other materials from wood to clay and even metal roofing. While all roofing materials work to protect and shelter you inside your home or business, there are many key differences in each material that you should know before constructing or repairing your roof.

To understand the intricacies of each roofing material and style, you need to speak with a professional roofer. Whether you are building a new house or replacing a damaged roof, you need to know the material that is right for you.

Benefits of Shingles and Metal Roofing

No matter the material, your roof takes on the destructive forces of the elements every day. From wind, rain, and hail, to scorching heat, you need a roofing material that can withstand and protect you from even the worst types of weather. The benefits of metal roofing include:

  • Long life expectancy
  • Long-term warranties and durability
  • Protects home from high winds and fire
  • Low maintenance and also reduces the amount of waste in landfills

On the other hand, the majority of homes choose composition shingles. This type of roofing material comes with the following advantages:

  • Easy to install
  • Comes in a large selection of styles and colors
  • Low maintenance
  • People can walk across without worrying about damaging the roof

If you are trying to make a decision on roofing style, talk with a roofing professional today.

I first became acquainted with Zane Nixon, owner of AAA Mustang Roofing, when our metal roof was severely damaged in a hailstorm. Our house is large and has over 30 separate roof surfaces, with an equivalent number of edges and valleys. Zane and his crew completed the work in less than two weeks, and it is flawless. They even repaired several areas that suffered structural damages.

Just recently a flash flood on the day following hurricane Hermine caused significant damage to the first story of the house. I called Zane and he was here within 30 minutes and stayed until midnight. Using squeegees, towels and a shop vacuum, we managed to save the rugs and furniture. However, the walls required substantial repairs. Zane worked closely with our insurance adjuster, and the wall repair work under his guidance as contractor is every bit as professional as his previous work.

I recommend AAA Mustang without reservation for any type of construction or remodeling job.
