A metal roof that might last for 50 years

It’s a given that metal roofing, such as tin roofs and copper roofs, cost more than asphalt shingles. They are considered about on par with tile roofs and cedar shingles; they actually cost less than slate.

Let’s look at some reasons you might choose metal roofing in Austin over other roofing materials.

Smart Investment

Metal reroofs typically cost about 25% more than shingled roofs. A 2000 sq. ft. home typically costs between $8K-$12K, depending on the roof system. Obviously the shingles would be at the low end.

Also, with the energy savings most metal roofs are capable of, they can actually pay for themselves over the lifetime of their service.


Metal roofs are less prone to failure and leakage caused by wind, rain, UV conditions, and anything else the harsh weather conditions the Texas environment can throw at them.  Put simply, metal roofs are tougher, stronger, and more durable than asphalt shingle roofs.

Energy Star

Many metal roofing products carry the valuable Energy Star rating.  The finishes on the metal panels yield high reflectivity ratings which effectively limit the amount of transferred heat through the roof system and into the home.  The benefits are much lower energy requirements to cool your home in the harsh Florida heat.  The results are much lower utility bills in the hot months.


The clean lines and great color choices of a metal roof greatly enhance the looks and value of a home or business.

Warning Signs Your Metal Roof May Need Service

One of the biggest benefits of choosing metal roofing is that the system is so much more durable than tiles, slate, or asphalt shingles. Metal roofs hardly ever need repair or service, but nothing is perfect. Here are a few signs that your metal roof may need service:

Any leakage
Any time you see signs of a water leak inside your home—discolored ceilings or walls in particular—it’s a good idea to check the roof and make sure that everything is as it should be. Leaks can be caused by a number of issues, such as improper installation, damage caused when cutting through the roof (to install a new skylight, for example), or through corrosion of the fasteners after extreme weather or many years of use.

Exposed Fastenings
Some types of corrugated metal roofing with exposed fastenings need retightening every 10-15 years.

Paint Or Coating Shows Visible Wear
After many years of service, some metal roofs need to be repainted, but many don’t need even this treatment.

Severe Storm
After any sort of storm, it’s a good idea to examine your roof and make sure you don’t see any signs of damage. These could include loose nails, or holes or patches of rust. Investigate anything that is hanging loose or off kilter.

When your metal roof needs service, we strongly recommend that you call a certified metal roofing contractor in Austin. You can walk on most metal roofs, but some of them require that you move in particular ways or at particular points of the roof; if you’re not sure what you’re doing, you can cause even more damage to your roof.

It’s also worth consulting the paperwork anytime you believe your roof needs repair. Most metal roofing systems have warranties that last for decades.
