When making a decision, consider weather conditions and budget. Metal is stronger. Cheap metal is more prone to hail and wind damage than asphalt. Asphalt is nearly always cheaper than metal. Asphalt roofs have a 30 to 40-year warranty. They typically last well past the warranty.

Cost and presentation are the factors that have the most influence on the decision. When money is not part of the scenario, metal lasts longer and is a better option. The claims of metal roofing only companies need not be a consideration if a metal roof is not in the budget. Asphalt is a reliable roofing option.
