The other benefits are:

• Longevity and durability: Metal roofing doesn't crack or rot and it doesn't warp or curl. Neither panels nor shingles split or break, they don't break or burn nor are the finishes prone to peeling. Metal roofing is also the most resistant to freezing and thawing, snow, hail, wind, and fire.

• Efficiency: Metal roofs help you save money with reduced heating and cooling costs and some materials have been shown to present cost savings of 40% compared to conventional roofs.
