Jacksonville, NC is on the New River a short distance from the Atlantic Ocean. Scenic and historic, it’s also your home. And while you love living there, the last tropical storm that passed by may have damaged your roof. Currently, you have asphalt roofing, but you like metal roofing for its ability to withstand strong hurricane winds. You’d like to consider both in a side-by-side comparison. Is there a roofing contractor who can give you a free estimate for both types of roofing? When searching for roofing Jacksonville NC contractors who give free estimates, choose Xterior LLC.

Furthermore, our technicians have years of experience in the installation of both asphalt shingles and metal roofing.
Asphalt roofing has been protecting American homes for over 100 years. Available in a large variety of colors, shingles are also available in a variety of shapes. There are 3-tab, architectural, or premium styles. 3-tab is the least expensive with a notched design arranged in a single layer. Architectural shingles are multi-layered with a multi-dimensional texture. Finally, luxury shingles mimic slate and shake roofs at a much lower price.
In addition, asphalt shingles are easy to install and the most popular choice. They’re also the most economical choice, low-maintenance, and durable. Furthermore, asphalt shingles have a life expectancy of almost two decades.
If you live in a coastal town, you may want to consider a strong metal roof. When it comes to withstanding hurricane-force winds, nothing beats metal roofing. Typically, manufacturers will warrant metal panels to withstand winds of 140 mph. However, FEMA has documented a building withstanding winds of 170 mph. This is equivalent to a major category 5 hurricane.
Additionally, metal roofs are environmentally-friendly, containing 25-95% recycled material. Plus, they are 100% recyclable at the end of their life. Metal roofs can also save on energy costs because they reflect solar heat. And best of all, metal roofs are last between 40-70 years or more. You’ll be replacing your asphalt roofing several times in that same period.
Typically, it’s hard to estimate the timeframe for a new roof because each house is unique. Steeply sloped roofs, roofs with many angles or dormers all take longer. Additionally, your choice of material will influence the time frame too. Metal roofs are a bit more technical and take more time than asphalt. We can give you a better estimate when we do our initial free consultation.
Also, there is the weather, which no one can control. If Mother Nature decides to send some storms your way, there’ll be delays in completing the project. Finally, until the contractor removes the old roof, you won’t know if there is damage to your wood sheathing. Of course, the contractor will need to complete any repair work before installing your new roof.
Whichever type of roof you choose, you must consider particular factors. Certainly, the size of the roof impacts cost, but also the slope. Not only does a steeper pitch increase the area requiring more material, but also more precautions.
Mainly, your choice of material will have the biggest impact on price. The upfront cost for asphalt shingles is the least expensive, followed by steel and then aluminum metal roofs. Each also has different styles impacting your cost. Of course, you must also consider that you may never have to replace a metal roof. Moreover, any new roof will add value to your home.
