Wilmington NC Roofing – Metal versus Asphalt for a High-Quality Roof

Wilmington NC roofingAre you looking for a Wilmington NC roofing company? Xterior LLC has over 45 years of combined exterior home improvement experience. Here at Xterior LLC, our goal is to provide you with a high-quality roof no matter what your budget. We can help with both metal roofs and asphalt roofs, and provide free estimates for North Carolina homeowners.

Metal versus Asphalt – What’s the Difference?

At Xterior LLC, we use the highest quality products and treat every home as though it was our own. If you’re trying to decide between metal and asphalt, here are some key differences:

  • Longevity

Both metal and asphalt can last a long time if installed properly. We even have asphalt shingle roof options that can withstand 130 mile per hour winds! However, metal roofs outlast asphalt in most cases. With asphalt, you can expect to enjoy the roof for more than 20 years. On the other hand, metal roofs can last a lifetime (50+ years).

  • Style

At one time, metal roofs were just big slabs of metal available in only a handful of colors. Today, things are different! Both metal roofs and asphalt roofs come in a wide variety of styles and colors. They can both imitate the texture and style of other materials. At Xterior LLC, we work with Owens Corning shingles, which also come in several different shapes.

  • Time to Install

A roofing project can take as little as a couple of days, or it can take longer depending on the specifics. For both metal and asphalt, we have several style options, and installation methods vary. Installation time also depends on the time of year, weather, size of the roof and other factors. If you contact us for a free quote, we can also give you a timeline estimate for your project.

  • Budget

If budget is a concern, you may find asphalt roofing is the better option. Metal does tend to be more expensive upfront, but it really depends on your project. That’s why we offer free quotes to all homeowners, so you can see the full price break-down. Before you make a final roofing installation decision, we want you to know the full cost upfront. Fill out the form on this page for a free estimate.
