Metal roofing, when properly installed and regularly maintained, can last nearly 60 years. Put that in comparison to asphalt shingles which need replacement every 20 years. The value in savings of this material is astounding! Relying on a trustworthy professional roofing contractor to do yearly inspections is vital to the longevity of your roof. Here is a brief list of regular maintenance procedures.

  • Check the flashing to make sure it is still intact
  • Removal of any debris, limbs, and nests collected on the surface
  • Clean the gutters – this helps to aid in the longevity of the roof with proper water displacement
  • Check fasteners for rust and/or corrosion
  • Check for scratches, dents, chipping, fading
  • Clean the surface of the roof with water

Be sure to call on Eagle Eye Roofing in North Canton when you need an inspection. Plugging that into your yearly calendar of routine maintenance items can help remind you of the importance of maintaining the roof. 

Energy Efficiency

Metal roofing is one of the most energy-efficient roofing materials and can reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 25%. A barrier is created by the metal which reduces heat loss and maximizes energy efficiency. The metal can also help to keep a constant temperature over the surface of the roof. 

Rainwater collection is ideal when the home has a metal roof. The water is collected from the roof in a large container for use now or later. Metal roofs have a lower concentration of bacteria compared to other materials, especially when coated with an antimicrobial paint system. The collected rainwater can be used for lawns, laundering clothes, washing cars, or outdoor ponds. Always use caution when using rainwater for human consumption. It must be filtered and decontaminated first to be safe. This is just another way metal roofing is energy efficient!

Fire Resistance

Situations happen, and there can be a potential fire hazard, especially during a hot and dry season. Metal roofs have a Class A fire rating, which is the highest level of fire resistance available. This feature adds an extra layer of protection to homes, reducing the risk of fire damage and providing peace of mind to homeowners in fire-prone areas.

Environmentally Friendly Choice

For environmentally conscious homeowners, opting for a metal roof aligns with sustainable practices. Metal roofing materials are often made with a significant percentage of recycled content and are fully recyclable at the end of their lifespan. Moreover, their long life expectancy means fewer resources are used in replacement and disposal, reducing the environmental impact compared to other roofing materials.


In conjunction with the previous point, if a metal roof does need to be replaced, the material can be used for a variety of new items. Unlike asphalt shingles that clog up landfills, metal can be used to create the following items.

  • Future metal products such as cans, appliances, plumbing fixtures
  • Create a unique tabletop
  • Make an outdoor sculpture
  • Build an outdoor shower
  • Fencing
  • Go metal in the kitchen
  • Make an accent wall 
  • Create a headboard
