What are the differences between an asphalt roof and a metal roof from Schroer & Sons?

Asphalt Roofing

There are advantages to asphalt.  For example, it is lower priced initially and looks nice at first.  However, the disadvantages of asphalt far outweigh the advantages.  Asphalt quickly loses granules and depreciates.  Years baking in the heat of the sun causes asphalt to curl and to crack.  Additionally, asphalt supports the growth of mold and algae.

Worst of all, an asphalt roof is a temporary roof.  The average asphalt roof lasts 10-12 years.  It is a cheap upfront alternative to metal, but in the end costs you more.  The cost of material and installation is likely to double in the next decade.  A $10,000 job today will cost you $20,000 in 10 years and $40,000 in 20 years.  This makes asphalt far more expensive for the life of your home.

Metal Roofing

A metal roof from Schroer & Sons is a lifetime roof.  Not only is it a maintenance-free, permanent roofing solution, it remains beautiful forever.  Every color of a Schroer & Sons metal roof utilizes the latest technology in fadeless paint, ensuring it will look new for decades.  Our roof is 100% aluminum.  This means, unlike steel, it will not rust.  It will not grow mold or algae.  It is energy efficient.  It is virtually leakproof.  It holds its value.  And, it is lightweight.  While a metal roof from Schroer & Sons is a higher cost up front, it is an investment in the value of your home.  It is guaranteed to be a maintenance-free and worry-free lifetime roof.  We go to extra lengths to make sure yours is a one-and-done installation.
