Asphalt vs Metal Roofing: Which is Best?

Asphalt roofs are typically cheaper than their metal counterparts and are able to be installed faster than metal roofs. However, they are more prone to damage and require maintenance more often than their metal counterparts. They also don’t last as long as metal roofs. A typical asphalt roof will last anywhere from 20-30 years depending on the quality of the installation.

Metal roofs are a bit pricier than asphalt roofs but last longer (50+ years), making them a wise investment in the long run. They also don’t require much maintenance and can withstand harsh weather conditions better than asphalt roofs. In addition, they’re incredibly durable and strong enough to withstand hail storms without suffering any severe damage such as cracking or buckling.
