Why Ashphalt Roofs Fail?

Asphalt Roofs vs. Metal Roofs

There are many myths surrounding the comparison of metal to asphalt roofs.  We have heard that metal roofing systems are noisier, attract lightening, and are much heavier than their asphalt competitors.  All of these statements are simply untrue.  A metal roof may cost a bit more, but it will also come with a 50-year warranty in most cases.  Your asphalt shingles may also get you the same warranty, but this doesn’t mean that they are going to last for 50 years.  Metal roofs last 4 times longer than asphalt and are actually much, much lighter.  Even better, they are much more energy efficient and come in a variety of styles and textures.  In fact, metal roofing systems can actually be installed that look just like asphalt!
