In today’s post, we will discuss the benefits of using these high quality shingles for your next roofing project.

Why Traditional Asphalt Shingles are so Popular

For decades, asphalt shingles have been the most popular option when it comes to residential roofing. It’s affordable, can be installed relatively quickly, and provides adequate protection against the elements for up to 30 years. However, asphalt shingles are far more susceptible to damage caused by hail, high winds, and other inclement weather. This doesn’t necessarily mean you will have to deal with damage to your roof with asphalt shingles, but asphalt doesn’t provide the highest level of protection available on the market.

Superior Strength with Stone-Coated Metal Shingles

Stone coated metal shingles offer a much stronger option for you residential roofing needs. While these shingles require a greater investment, the benefits more than justify that investment. As opposed to asphalt shingles that only last about 15 to 30 years, these stone-coated shingles will last from 40 on up to 70 years, making these the last set of shingles you will have to add to your home. The construction of these shingles makes them resistant to dents and damage from extreme storms with hail, minimizing your need for repair issues. Stone-coated metal shingles are also sturdier than asphalt shingles, meaning they can withstand much stronger winds and reduce the chance of shingles being ripped off with strong gusts of wind. Beyond the structural benefits, stone-coated metal shingles also add curb appeal and value to your home.
