Metal roofs are not just for commercial buildings. Many homeowners install metal roofing because they are longer lasting and require less maintenance than shingles. Metal roofs are expanding in design options and can work for all types of architectural style homes. However, metal roofs are more expensive than shingles usually, but have a longer life and more extensive warranties.

- Less maintenance
