Life Cycle Assessment
Life Cycle –
According to Ducker’s 2004 research study, the life cycle cost of a metal roof is significantly less than an asphalt or single-ply roof.
•The expected life cycle cost of metal roofs reported in this study is 30 cents per square foot per year, asphalt is 37 cents per square foot per year, and single-ply roofs is 57 cents per square foot per year.
Due to its credible long life and documented durability, metal roofing makes an attractive investment.
Based on a study conducted by Ducker in 2004, metal roofs have a significantly longer expected service life than either asphalt or single-ply roofs. According to Ducker findings, metal roofs are expected to last 17 years longer than asphalt and 20 years longer than single-ply.
Expected Roof Life Years
- Metal: 40
- Asphalt: 23
- Single-ply: 20
