Because metal is considered a premium roofing material, it can conceivably
increase your home’s value and boost your asking price, especially if it has a
comprehensive warranty. For instance, Classic Metal Roofing Systems has
a 50-year warranty from the date of installation, which transfers to the home’s
new owners at no cost each time the home is sold.
You likely won’t recoup the entire expense, however. According
to Remodeling magazine’s Cost vs. Value 2022 report, for Green Bay, WI a metal roof replacement has an average 61% return on investment nationwide.
What’s the metal-roof difference?
Metal roofs have a number of advantages, notably durability. The International
The Association of Certified Home Inspectors says that metal roofing typically
lasts two to three times longer than wood or asphalt shingles.
If properly installed, a metal roof won’t fade, rust, crack, or rot, according to the Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA), a national trade association of roofing contractors and dealers.
Metal roofing can withstand gusts of up to 140 miles per hour and “sheds” precipitation quickly, which protects the roof’s structural integrity. It also resists catching fire from any airborne embers or sparks.
