Once you decide you’re ready for a metal roof, the next step is to decide the type of style you want. Since the lifespan of a metal roof can easily hit and pass 75 years, you should make this decision for the long run. You have a couple of options from standing seam, to metal shingles, slate, and shakes. Plus you have a massive array of color choices.
One aspect to consider is your home’s style. We see homeowners choose standing seam metal roofs for cabins, barn-style home, classic colonials, capes, etc. However, many people like the classic look of slate and opt for metal slate or metal shakes. Looking at the style of your home could lead to the question, “do you want to stick with the authentic-looking design or go more contemporary?”
The good thing is that when choosing between metal slate, shakes, shingles or standing seam, you won’t see a difference in performance. All of our metal roofs bring the same boost to energy efficiency, durability, and lifespan. Regardless of the style you choose, you’ll be happy with your choice.
