The financial benefits of owning a metal roof

While different kinds of roofs provide a wide range of benefits depending on the makeup of your house, at the end of the day – choosing a roof is ultimately a financial decision. When it comes to metal roofs – that decision can be a little more expensive up front, but certainly saves you a lot of money over the long haul.

Here are some of the financial benefits of investing in a metal roof and what kind of value that investment will provide you with as the years roll by. Let’s jump right in!

Increased home value

Metal roofs are more durable, they’re more weather resistant, they’re easier to maintain and they’ll last a lot longer than other roofing systems. To put it simply – that is a huge benefit for a potential buyer – but  benefit that comes at a cost to them as well. Homes with metal roofs are inherently more valuable and if you’re looking to put your house on the market in the coming months, you should account for your roof in your home’s overall value.

Most studies have shown that on average- a metal roof can add up to about 65% of it’s cost to a home’s overall value. That’s nothing to sneeze at!

Dramatically reduced maintenance

As we pointed out above, one of the major benefits of having metal roof is that you won’t encounter many to any of the usual roof maintenance headaches you’d have using other roofing systems. Things like leaks, frying and other issues don’t happen with metal roofs. And that’s not just from a functionality standpoint, either. Metal roofs also can take a real beating and still maintain their stellar appearance.

Month to month

Metal roofs provide a sort of financial ripple effect throughout the rest of your budget – and that fact remains one of the reason they’ve become so popular. The area you’re likely to see the biggest difference is in your energy bill. Metal roofs seal much better, making it easier to keep both cold and warm air inside your home – meaning that your HVAC system won’t have to work nearly as hard to keep your home at the desired temperature. Less work, means less money.


Metal roofs are truly an investment. From their long-standing durability, reduced maintenance costs and month-to-month benefits that they provide, they’re certainly more than worth their steep cost up front. That money will soon be recouped.
