How to Decide Between a Metal or Shingle Roof

Buying a new roof or needing repairs on one may be an unfamiliar process for the average residential customer. To better familiarize our customers with the process, we sought help from Peter, one of our Residential Sales Managers. He helped us brainstorm commonly asked questions.

Often times, customers reach out to our Home Exteriors by Baker team to learn about the differences between a shingle roofing system and a metal roofing system. The biggest difference between these two systems is cost.

Baker Roofing Company installs metal roofs that are a thicker gauge of material, very high quality and with 30-year warranties. This details why a metal roofing system is more expensive than a shingle roof.

If you decide to move forward with a metal roofing system, be sure to select a contractor with proven experience. If a metal roof is installed incorrectly, it can create an even more expensive problem for the homeowner.

Whether you end up choosing metal or shingles, Baker Roofing will be here to help!
