Your home’s roof is easily one of the most important pieces of your home’s exterior. It offers your home a number of benefits, including most importantly protection from the elements, but also curb appeal & resale value, as well as insulation. Considering how important your roof is to your home’s exterior, it is important to ensure you choose the right material for your roof! Our team is happy to be able to offer both metal roofing & SBS rubberized shingles, but you may be wondering, which option is better for my home? Both options have their own unique benefits, but let’s compare the two below!


When it comes to protection from the elements, both options are truly fantastic. While traditional asphalt shingles deteriorate from constant exposure to the elements, our SBS rubberized shingles have an additional degree of durability that allows them to last far longer than the competition.

Our metal roofing is also incredibly durable, protecting your home from anything Mother Nature has to offer, whether it’s rain, snow, or falling debris. You can’t go wrong with either option, as they both have the ability to keep your home protected for a half-century or more with proper maintenance!


When it comes to which roofing option is more aesthetically pleasing, we have another close tie. Asphalt shingles have long reigned as the standard of the roofing industry, which means they are widely preferred by homeowners for the aesthetic they provide. Our SBS Rubberized shingles look exactly like traditional asphalt shingles, but provide more durability!

As for our metal roofing, this is a unique option that plenty of homeowners prefer, as it also looks fantastic! Metal roofing is available in a wide variety of styles & colors, meaning that no matter what color you have in mind for your home’s exterior aesthetic, we can find the perfect option with our metal roofing!

Energy Efficiency

When it comes to which option will keep your home more energy-efficient, the comparison is close, but one option edges out the other slightly. While the majority of the insulation of your roof comes from what you install in your attic, your roof itself does offer insulation potential.

While asphalt shingles are known for absorbing thermal energy and potentially leading to unwanted heat gain, metal roofs are known for reflecting it, which can help to keep your home more temperate and comfortable, regardless of what’s going on outside!
