Commercial Roofing Questions Answered;

As a leading commercial and residential roofing contractor in Dayton, Ohio, Dependable Construction knows a thing or two about various types of roofing materials. From asphalt shingles to metal and more like stone coated steel, your options are endless. So let’s look at some of the pros and cons of both materials:

Asphalt roofs. Traditionally, an Asphalt roof is the material of choice throughout Ohio. When homeowners determine their not going to live there long enough to see a payback or it’s too big of a commitment, not many homeowners can’t justify a large purchase like a metal roof. So many homeowners stick with Asphalt roof since it’s the most affordable. Dependable Construction asphalt roofs offer an unbeatable warranty. Asphalt roofs are very easy to repair, depending on the age and care of the roof. Downfall is their also easier to damage.

Metal roofs. The biggest appeal of these roofs is their longevity and durability. While asphalt roofs can have a lifespan anywhere from 20-30 years, depending on who installs your roof and the quality of the material they sold the owner. A metal roof has a life expectancy of over 50 years, with maintenance and care. Unfortunately, the drawback of a metal roofing system is the upfront price. Metal roofs are more expensive to make, and take longer to install. Both of these cause metal roofing systems to significantly be more expensive than Asphalt roofing systems.

When it comes down to it, choosing between an asphalt and metal roof it ultimately comes down to preference and your wallet. Since both are great options we’re here to help you, call us today at 937.318.9572 if you are considering having a new roofing system installed on your property.
