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.
Annual Price Per Square Foot
- Metal Roofs: 30¢
- Asphalt Roofs: 37¢
- Single-ply Roofs: 57¢
In addition, the study found that metal roofs have a significantly longer expected service life than asphalt or single-ply roofs, lasting 17 years longer than asphalt and 20 years longer than single-ply.
A long life of credibility and documented durability—that’s what makes metal roofing such an attractive investment.
