Why Choose a Metal Roof? Pros & Cons

There are many reasons why a person would choose a metal roof for their home or business. The advantages of a metal roof in Maryland are many, while the disadvantages are few.


If you choose a metal roof for your home or business, you can expect to enjoy these advantages:


Metal roofs are incredibly durable. Because metal takes so long to break down if installed correctly and properly maintained, it can last for 100 years.

Realistically, they should last for at least 60-70 years with minimal attention given to them, which means a metal roof could be the only roof you’ll ever have to install on your home.


Metal roofs can handle the wind, rain, and other severe weather patterns that can wreak havoc on other more traditional roofing systems like shingles.

Where high winds can blow shingles right off your roof, a metal roof will stand up to that test. It can also withstand the sun and even a heavy impact if a tree branch falls on it.

Moisture Resistance

Along the same lines as durability, metal roofs are impervious to moisture of any kind. As long as they are installed and sealed correctly, they’ll keep any water from getting into your attic and home, which will prevent the growth of mold or mildew.

Energy Savings

Metal roofing is also capable of withstanding the extreme heat of the sun and can actually reflect the sun’s rays rather than absorb them. That means your home will stay cooler during the hot summer months in Maryland.

This energy efficiency also translates to savings since you won’t have to run your air conditioner quite as hard.

Insurance Discounts

Another bonus that some people can take advantage of when they have metal roofs is that some insurance companies will offer a discounted rate on homeowner’s insurance because metal roofs are so durable.


There are many options when it comes to metal roofing. Metal roofing sheets come in both standing-seam and screw-down exposed fastener styles, and then there are also metal tiles and metal shakes that a homeowner or business owner could choose from. Metal roofs also come in a large variety of colors to match any home.


With metal roofs being almost impenetrable, lasting two to three times as long as shingled roofs, and looking good while doing it, you might wonder why everyone doesn’t choose a metal roof. But there are a few disadvantages to be aware of:


As mentioned, metal roofs can stand up to a lot and don’t typically need a lot of maintenance. However, they aren’t indestructible. There are certain extreme weather conditions, like large-sized hail storms, that can dent or puncture metal roofing sheets.

When this happens, and a repair or a replacement is needed, it can be more difficult than replacing shingles since an experienced metal roofing technician is needed to tackle the repair.


Because metal roofs last so long, and because the material is significantly more durable than shingles, the cost of installing a metal roof is more expensive than a shingled roof. We’ll give a cost breakdown below.

How Much Does a Metal Roof Cost?

Metal roofs are more costly than shingled roof systems but are somewhat on par with custom roofing materials like cedar shake or custom slate roofs. Because roof sizes, shapes, and styles are so widely varied, it’s difficult to put an exact figure on how much a metal roof will cost you.

However, they typically run somewhere between $10,000 - $50,000. This figure is mostly dependent upon the size of the roof, but other factors, such as the complexity of the design of your roof and the actual metal material you choose, also play a part.

Standing-seam or corrugated metal roof sheets will cost less than copper or modern aluminum roofing materials. Metal roofing costs range from $8.10 to $12.50 per square foot, whereas shingled roofs cost around $3.50 to $5.50 per square foot.

Although the cost of a metal roof is more than that of a shingled roof, the average shingled roof will last somewhere between 20 and 25 years, which means you might have to replace that roof two or three times before you would ever have to consider a metal roof replacement.
