Metal roofing lasts at least twice as long as asphalt shingles. When properly installed with the right equipment and tools, metal roofing lasts over 50 years. On the other hand, asphalt shingles tend to need replacing after just 15-20 years.
Metal roofing gives you the strength and durability you need for the Florida climate. While strong winds more easily tear off asphalt shingles, metal roofing stands up to winds, intense sun, and heavy rain.
Metal roofing can also save you on your energy bills since it reflects most of the sun and heat. Asphalt shingles absorb the sun, making the structure below hotter than it needs to be.
