The Pros

Many people choose metal roofs because of the many advantages they offer. Metal roofing lasts longer than just about any other roofing option. A metal roof can last anywhere from 20 to 50 years. Most of the paint finishes on a metal roof are warrantied for 30 years.

Metal roofs are able to resist the Chicago area’s high winds and heavy snowfall. They are also resistant to fire, pests, mildew and rot.

Metal roofs are considered a highly environmentally friendly choice. They are made of materials that can be easily recycled after use. And, because of their long life, they require fewer material inputs through the life of the home.

Metal roofs come in a wide range of colors and styles. This allows you to customize your roof to give the appearance you want to your home.

Metal roofs are quick to install, so your home is not left open for long. Our contractors here in Chicago have many years experience with metal roofs and can perform an installation quickly and accurately.

While metal roofs cost more upfront, they are economical over the life of the roof. Because they last so long, the price per year can often be less than many other roofing choices.
