Once used primarily on commercial projects, metal roofs are increasingly common for residential projects, including multi-story apartments complexes and single-family homes. In fact, metal roofs have become one of the fastest growing innovations in the home remodeling market.

The Metal Roofing Alliance estimates that 750,000 metal roofs were installed on U.S. homes in 2015. In recent years, these practical products have achieved double-digit market share growth while the market share of asphalt shingles has dropped slightly.

There are many appeals to metal roofing products. They are durable and offer exceptional protection, promoting project longevity. With an array of shapes, colors, and finishes to choose from, many homeowners select metal roofs for their attractiveness.  Because they are designed to last 50 years, homeowners know it is a sound financial investment.
