As your leading Munfordville KY, commercial roofing contractor, Marks Commercial Roofing knows a thing or two about various types of roofing materials. From slate to shingles to metal and more, your options are endless. By far the most popular roofing choice of Munfordville is a Marks Commercial Roofing; however, we are installing more and more commercial metal roofs.
Here are the pros and cons of both materials:
Metal roofs. The biggest appeal of these roofs is their longevity and durability. While asphalt roofs can have a lifespan anywhere from 10-20 years – depending on who installs your roof – your metal roof has a life expectancy of over 50 years. Unfortunately, much of the drawback of metal roofs is the upfront price. Metal roofs are more expensive to make and take more time to install, so these roofing systems are significantly more expensive than their shingled counterpart.
Asphalt roofs. Traditionally, an Asphalt roof is the material of choice throughout the KY. Whether they aren’t going to live there long enough to see a payback or it’s too big of a commitment, not many homeowners can’t justify a large purchase like a metal roof. An Asphalt roof is affordable, attractive and Mark’s Commercial Roofing’s asphalt roofs offer an unbeatable warranty. These options are easier to repair, but also easier to damage.
When it comes down to it, choosing between an asphalt and metal roof ultimately lies with whichever you prefer. Both are great options! Want to find out more about having a new roof installed?
