Trying decide between a metal or asphalt roof for your home? Here are a few major differences to help you make your decision:

Appearance
Metal roofing has a very industrial look that may or may not look good with your home. The styles and colors are also limited.
Asphalt roofing comes in many different styles and colors to customize your roof to your personal aesthetic. GAF, for example, offers shingles that look like wood shakes, clay, slate and more!

Cost
Metal roofing is significantly more costly than asphalt roofing and is also more expensive to repair should there be any damage.
Asphalt roofing is one of the most affordable roofing options available. The repair cost is therefore affordable as well.

Installation
Metal roofing is generally less popular and therefore there are limited qualified contractors. Because it is such a difficult product to install you want to be sure to have a skilled and experienced contractor work on your metal roof.
Asphalt roofing is easy for a trained professional to install and most roofs can be completed in one to two days. The material is much more forgiving than metal roofing as well.
