1. YOU PLAN TO LIVE IN YOUR HOME FOR LONG - TERM
Some jobs require you to stay mobile, and you may have to move every few years to excel in your field. And if you are young or single, your financial circumstances may stay in constant flux. As a result, you have to frequently change apartments or housing to accommodate changes in your income. In these cases, you should only make repairs as needed until you can build up a solid budget for future homes.
However, once you’ve settled into a house, a metal roof makes more financial sense. If you plan to live in your home for the rest of your life, you want a material that lasts as long as you do. The average asphalt shingle needs replacement every 20 years, and typical wood shingles last as long as 30 years. But with proper care, galvanised steel roofs last 60 years or more, so you spend less overall on repairs.
