Metal Roof Shingles

Metal Roof Shingles

Comparison Between Metal And Asphalt Shingle Roofing Fiberglass composition asphalt shingles are the most commonly used roofing material today. Many consumers are unaware of the alternatives that may better suit their needs and budgets, reinforcing the importance of considering one’s roofing options before committing. Below we explore asphalt shingles and one major alternative, Gerard roofing systems, to help you decide which is best for your next roofing project. How will each material improve the look of my home? Both fiberglass composition asphalt shingles and metal roofing shingles by Gerard are available in many types and colors. The appeal and color versatility of asphalt shingles can be attributed to their exterior colored stone chips. However, the material scars easily in the heat and the paint is vulnerable to chipping, giving many homeowners only a short time to enjoy the appeal of their new asphalt shingle roof. In addition to this downside, asphalt shingle roofs don’t have the dimensional look of tile or shake, which roofing systems by Gerard can achieve.  By comparison, Gerard roofing shingles and shakes are stone-coated for aesthetic appeal. However, unlike asphalt shingles and their mediocre paint application, these options provide homeowners with durable, lasting roofing systems thanks to Gerard’s top-quality materials and intricate process of applying their coatings. The stone-coated metal roofing options from Gerard offer benefits, ensuring paint wear prevention, UV protection and more. How do the prices of these materials compare? Typical asphalt shingle roofing systems have lower purchase and installation costs than metal roofing systems. However, comparing the price of low-grade asphalt shingles with the quality of Gerard steel shingles would provide a skewed outlook. Architectural fiberglass composition shingles are the more dimensional and better built asphalt option, comparable to Gerard’s Granite Ridge steel shingles in price. However, Gerard steel shingles outperform asphalt architectural shingles in all areas. These high-end asphalt shingles still pose the same problems as their lower grade counterparts, but with a higher price tag. In fact, the presence of asphalt shingles (of any kind) is often used against homeowners during resell negotiations. With metal roofing systems, homeowners save expenses they would have had with asphalt shingle roofs in maintenance, replacement and energy costs. Moreover, homeowners with Gerard roofs have the peace of mind that their property values have increased rather than suffered as a result of choosing lower performing alternatives.   Granite Ridge Gallery Color – Any -AspenBarcelonaBarclayCharcoalCopper PennyCountry BlendCyprusDevonshireDoverDriftwoodEnglish SuedeIronwoodSante FeSpanish RedSunset GoldTerracottaTimberwoodWindsor Granite Ridge in Country blend Granite Ridge in Aspen Granite Ridge in Barclay Granite Ridge in Barclay Granite Ridge in Barclay Granite Ridge in Barclay Granite Ridge in Ironwood Granite Ridge in ironwood Granite Ridge in ironwood Granite Ridge in ironwood Granite Ridge in Aspen Granite Ridge in Charcoal Granite Ridge in Charcoal Granite Ridge in Devonshire What about the materials’ respective effects on the environment? Not only is a metal roof’s strength a testament that it should be the choice for your next roofing project, but its environmental soundness and energy-saving credentials are as well. Unlike asphalt shingles, metal roofing materials are 100% recyclable. In addition, your Gerard stone coated metal roof is made from over 30% recycled steel, supplied by equally green-conscious facilities. Gerard also provides options that naturally create an insulated air barrier, translating into annual energy cost savings of up to 40% for homeowners who have opted for these systems. On the other hand, asphalt shingles’ heat absorption factor limits their potential energy efficiency.  Conclusion For the past seven decades, asphalt shingles have been the predominant roofing material employed in residential projects due not only to their low cost, but also to consumers being unaware of alternatives. A stereotypical standing seam or corrugated image may come to mind when thinking of metal roofing; however, quality metal is much more than misconceived notions lead one to believe. Gerard provides top-quality roofs that are just as, if not more, beautiful than your neighbors’. Residential metal roofs now project the beauty you want to be associated with your home. Unlike with asphalt shingles, the selection of metal roofing shingles and profiles is not dull or redundant – from standard color options to Energy Star-qualified colors, you will find something to suit your aesthetic desires without sacrificing performance. Not only are Gerard roofing systems outstanding investments that deliver the best protection, they will also be the last roof you’ll ever need!
