Asphalt can require re-roofing every 12 to 20 years, with the average age of roofing replaced in the U.S. being only 17 years.
We reroof asphalt shingles because they are made of oil-impregnated paper or fiberglass, and it begins to deteriorate as soon as you put it on your roof. Just normal weather and the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays add to an asphalt roof's deterioration. A metal roof, however, will not decompose. Unlike asphalt and other roofing styles, a metal roof can withstand just about everything Mother Nature throws at it.
Metal roofs come in a wide variety of styles, designed to fit into any neighborhood and that look just like typical roofing styles including cedar shake, slate, tile, shingle, and standing seam vertical panels.
Metal roofs are excellent insulators. Not only will your metal roof keep your house in Dallas / Fort Worth / Kansas City comfortable regardless of the weather outside, but it can actually lower your air conditioning and heating bills.

Standing Seam Metal Roofing
One great advantage of standing seam metal roofs is contained in the name itself: seams, the weak point in any roof and a potential entry point for moisture, are raised above the level of the roofing panel. Due to the smooth, straight lines, these roofs give your house an "industrial" feeling, yet with a modern flair. Continuous panels run from the ridge of the roof all the way down to the eaves. Between the panels are seams connected by fasteners which are raised above the level of the metal roofing.
