Metal Roof or Asphalt Roof? A Good Question

When considering the best roofing choice for your home, there are several factors to think about: Your roof should be able to withstand the Ontario climate (hot summers and harsh winters). Your roof should prevent small animals from entering your residence. Also, you need to find the best roofing quality for the best price.

However, one of the most important decisions is whether to choose a metal roof or an asphalt roof.

Metal roof shingles and metal roofs are advantageous in several ways. Asphalt roofing is more susceptible to severe weather conditions and is vulnerable to algae, mildew and moss, which shortens lifespan. Also, asphalt manufacturers dispose of millions of tons of asphalt every year, which raises questions about the impact on the environment.

More home, farm and cottage owners are making the move to
environmentally-friendly green roofing products that are lifetime warrantied.
Metal roofing shingles have superior performance under extreme weather. Studies show these roofing shingles create a roof that last 3-4 times longer than an asphalt roof, and have a lower impact on the environment.

Increased Home Value

Metal roofing shingles can also improve your home’s aesthetic appeal since they come in many colours, which are fade-resistant over time.
With the durability, longevity, and lightness of metal shingles, it’s not surprising that Lifestyle chose to provide customers with this superior roofing option years ago.

Lifestyle Home Products first started installing asphalt roof shingles. However, upon realizing that manufacturers would not always back their warranties, they switched to installing metal roof shingles.

For Lifestyle, in business since 1989, installing metal roofing shingles has proved to be a much better solution for customers overall.
