The experts highlight the major factors to consider when choosing between standing seam metal and shingles. 

Without a roof, a house is not a home. Its first and primary function is keeping you and your family safe and sound from the elements. In addition to protecting the people beneath the roof, it protects the structural integrity and interior property of the home. The roof also provides crucial role in insulating and ventilating the home to keep it energy-efficient and healthy.  

It’s important to keep this all in mind when choosing a new roofing system. It’s a big investment so it’s also important to consider all options in order to make the best choice for your home’s needs. One common choice is between getting a standing seam metal roof and a more traditional shingle roof. Luckily, the experts at Mr. Roofing have analyzed and explained the pros and cons of both types.  

Standing seam metal roof 

Becoming increasingly popular, metal roofing is catching on for a lot of good reasons. While a metal roof may be more expensive up front, it's an investment that pays off as metal roofs are rated to last up to twice as long. Even more, metal roofs showcase extreme durability and are better equipped to handle intense storms. 

Shingle roofing 

One thing that's great about a shingle roof is that they come in all shapes and styles. If you're searching for a particular style to complete the aesthetic of your home's exterior, you can likely find it in a shingle roofing system. Even more shingle roof installation is more cost-effective and can be installed quickly.
