Why Asphalt Roofs Fail
You may be expecting to get 20 to 25 years out of a new asphalt roof but we've got some bad news for you...
The asphalt content in today's shingles has fallen to an all-time low -- and it's a simple equation - lower asphalt content equals lower quality. Asa matter of fact, the quality has gotten so bad that new shingles begin curling, cupping and shredding granules in just one year -- and the asphalt shingle industry is in a panic trying to figure out how to keep fooling you. That is why at Superior Metal Roofing ,We vow to never install another asphalt roof.
Investment grade metal roofing, on the other hand, is impervious to the elements that often destroy asphalt roofing materials. So not only will you enjoy the increased durability of metal, but you'll gain the benefit of its eye-catching beauty too.

Bob Villa Says Buyer Beware
"When it comes to shingles, the drawbacks center on service life. While asphalt shingles come with warranties ranging from 20 to as long as 45 years, roofers and builders remain skeptical of those warranties. Since warranties are a marketing device, they are not a reliable predictor of lifespan. In the past decade, there has been many complaints of asphalt shingle failure long before warranties expired. Many homeowners have been dissatisfied with warranty payouts that didn't cover all the costs of repair or replacement as well."
