The popularity of metal roofing is on the rise.

The global market for metal roofing is expected to grow in the next seven years, according to a recent report.

MarketWatch reports that a report from QY Research predicts the metal roofing market grow 4.71 percent per year from 2017 to 2025.

The growth in popularity for metal roofing is not surprising. The material has some major advantages. Among them:

Durability

A metal roof can potentially last as long as the building it covers.

“Warranties vary widely, but most companies back their products for 20 to 50 years. Paint finishes typically have a 30-year limited warranty,” according to Hometips.com

Speed of installation

Expert roofers can get a metal roof installed fairly quickly.

“If your roof is stripped off and a storm is on the way, shortening the process by a day or two may offer a critical advantage.  Obviously, there is also considerable labor savings if you can ease and shorten the duration of roof installation,” Hometips.com points out.

Weight

Metal roofs are lighter than similarly durable materials such as tiles.

“Because of the material’s light weight, you can save on engineering and building the supporting structure. In fact, if you’re building a house or an addition, you can often downsize or reduce the number of roof support members,” according to Hometips.com

Despite its popularity, other roofing materials also have advantages. As we say on our website:
