. For over 100 years, asphalt shingles
have been safeguarding residences. As the most popular choice for roofing material, asphalt has many benefits.
Withstanding harsh weather elements, asphalt shingles are a durable product at an affordable price. Moreover, they’re available in a wide range of colors, textures, and styles to match any architectural style home. Finally, their life expectancy, low maintenance, and ease of installation have propelled them to the top choice of homeowners.
More Homeowners Are Choosing Metal Roofing
While more homeowners choose asphalt, the number of homes with metal roofs continues to grow. Fueled by the demand for sustainable building products that can withstand extreme weather events, metal roofs are gaining market share. Today, it’s the second most preferred roofing material in America
First, metal roofs outlast asphalt shingles by a large margin. Plus, metal roofing can withstand extreme weather making it a popular choice among coastal residents. It also appeals to environmentalists as it’s made from recycled material and is recyclable at the end of its life. Moreover, metal roofs are energy efficient in all seasons.
While metal roofs of the past were plain, silver, corrugated panels, today’s metal panels add beauty to any home. Although standing seam is the most popular, you can also find metal roofing in slate, clay, cedar shake, and shingles. Plus, you can choose from a wide variety of colors including premium and custom colors.
How Do I Find A Qualified Roofing Contractor?
Often, after there’s a severe storm, roofing scammers will show up promising to take care of roofing damage. Always, the homeowner suffers because the roofing contractor only does the bare minimum on the roof replacement. Thus, it’s always important to conduct research before hiring a roofing company.

- How long have you been in business?
- Do you have references I can call?

- What type of warranty do you offer?

How Do I Know When I Need A New Roof?
Certainly, if you notice wet spots or leaks in the interior of your home, it’s time to replace your roof. However, it may be time for a new roof even without developing a leak. Owens Corning recommends replacing your asphalt shingle roof
if you see any of these signs:
- Curling or cupping of shingle edges
- Cracked shingles
- Missing granules
- Your roof looks old and worn
- It’s nearing 20 years of age
While metal roofs are long-lasting, they don’t last forever. Some signs that it’s time to replace your metal roof include:
- Loose panels
- Gouges or punctures in the panels
- It’s nearing the end of its lifespan
What will a New Roof Cost?
Roofing costs vary with the uniqueness of each home. Houses have roofs of different sizes and varying degrees of slope. Plus, some homes have roofs with many peaks and valleys. All these differences can increase labor costs.
Of course, your choice of material also impacts your price tremendously. Typically, an asphalt shingle roof is less expensive than a metal roof. However, there are different options between each choice. For example, you can choose from 3 types of asphalt shingles: 3-tab, architectural, and luxury. Moreover, metal roofs are available in galvanized or galvalume steel, or aluminum.
Whichever type of roofing system you choose, Xterior LLC offers a broad range of financing options. Currently, we’re offering 0% interest rate for 48 months with approved credit for qualified homeowners. Plus, we proudly offer discounts for the military, seniors, teachers, and first responders.
How Long Will My Roofing Project Take?
Unfortunately, there isn’t a one size fits all answer to a time frame when replacing your roof. The complexity of your roof and its accessibility factor into your project’s finish date. Sometimes too, the contractor can’t see any damage until the old roof is torn off. Finally, Mother Nature always likes to wreck the best of plans.
However, when we give you our free no-obligation estimate, we’ll also give you a time frame for completion. Plus, we’ll keep you updated on weather changes while we work.
