Longevity of Metal Roofs in Palmetto Bay's Climate

The biggest factor that encourages many people to go with a metal roof is how long metal roofs last. The average life of a non-metal roof is 17 years. Asphalt can require re-roofing every 10 to 20 years, often sooner. A metal roofing system offers unmatched durability, lasting 2 to 3 times longer than most other roofs. Chances are good that a metal roof will be the last roof you ever install on your home.

While your neighbors may re-roof their home many times, a high-quality metal roof will likely be the last roof you'll ever need. Resistant to cracking, shrinking and eroding, metal roofing systems can also withstand extreme weather conditions such as hurricanes.

Energy Efficiency of Metal Roofs in Florida

Many residential metal roofs now utilize reflective pigment technology, which results in overall home energy efficiency, and lower utility bills. In addition, all metal roofs are made from 30-60% recycled material.

Understanding the Cons of Metal Roofing in Florida

While it’s true that metal roofs are one of the best options for durability and energy efficiency, there are still pros and cons to having a metal roof in Florida. Some of the cons of metal roofs include:

  • Metal roofs are costly - While they last longer than other types of roofs, metal roofs are also one of the more expensive roofs to install due to the cost of materials
  • Metal roofs have the potential to dent - If you receive heavy hail, there’s a chance that your metal roof could dent. Fortunately, this isn’t a common problem in Miami, since most hail that occurs isn't heavy enough to cause much damage.

Do Metal Roofs Increase Home Temperature?

One common misconception is that metal roofs can get hot or trap heat in your home. This isn’t any more true for metal roofs than it would be for darker shingle roofs. This is because metal roofs tend to reflect heat and light, unlike shingles which tend to absorb it.

Addressing Noise Concerns with Metal Roofs

Another concern some may have about installing a metal roof is that the noise level would be louder when it rains or hails than it would be for a shingle roof. This is another common misconception. Metal roofs aren’t any more noisy than a traditional shingle roof. This is because the structure of the roof (including the coating and insulation) works to reduce the amount of noise when it rains. A great feature for Florida residents!
