Residential Asphalt Shingles and Metal Roofing

Re-Roofing your home is one of the best ways to protect your home, and it also helps with the resale of a home if completed recently.  This can be a difficult process if you do not chose a contractor that has been down the sames roads in regards to insurance claims, location, or even complexity of the roof.  We have been in business long enough to have seen most anything that can happen.  We also want you to have the best roof possible, so that is last a very long time.

When you think of home roofing systems, most people think asphalt shingles are the only material they can have either due to an HOA, or misinformation regarding metal roofing (fading or rust) . However, as metal roofing quality improves, and the costs continue to decrease, more homeowners are discovering their benefits.

Despite their higher upfront costs, metal roofs pay for themselves within just a few years. They offer better protection against the outside, and they look terrific as well.

If you are thinking about a change from asphalt to metal, then just call Initiative Roofing. We supply more residential metal roofing systems than anyone else!

Metal vs Shingle Roofing

When asphalt shingle systems first hit the market, they were the best choice. They are affordable and efficient and offer many years of protection.  Asphalt shingles are still a good choice in regards to cost, and most HOA mandate them.  We install asphalt shingles, and believe they are a good choice for certain applications.

However, they are also prone to many issues, and some roofs may not last as long as others. Harsh wind, rain, and snow can drastically reduce an asphalt roof’s service life.

Metal roofing, on the other hand, offers increased protection and better energy savings. And while it may cost more at first, the price is comparable to different roofing types.

Based on your homeowner’s insurance policy, having a new metal roof installed may cut your premiums. Metal roof systems are safer than asphalt, and your family will remain better protected for longer.

Aren’t Metal Roofs Ugly?

The first generation of metal roofs wasn’t much regarding appearance. However, over the years, the manufacturing process has led to more attractive roof types.

Today’s metal roofs can become painted many different colors. Best of all, they can be colored to look like several other material types.

If you prefer the look of slate, asphalt shingle, stone, or other types of roofing, we may be able to supply that would give a similar appearance. Metal roofs can adopt a faux material appearance, allowing you to customize them any way that you want.
