When it is time to re-roof, a homeowner will weigh the pros and cons of all roofing materials, look at their budget, and choose the best material they can afford.

Many metal roofing manufacturers are approaching architects and new home builders to choose the best first roof, metal. Thanks to these efforts, the number of residential metal roofs is increasing. And as more and more people have the positive experience that is metal roofing, the metal re-roofing market will expand.
