Keeping this in view, how many years does a metal roof last?
One may also ask, how much does corrugated metal cost? At an average cost of $4.00 to $8.00 per square foot installed, corrugated metal is priced somewhat similarly to asphalt shingles, especially at the low end, and yet it's far more durable, energy efficient, and with proper maintenance can last far longer than asphalt shingles.
Keeping this in view, how often do metal roofs need to be replaced?
The predicted life expectancy of a metal roof is at least 40-60 years, many last a lot longer. This means that you only incur a one time cost, upon installation. By contrast, when you put up asphalt shingles, you can expect them to last 12-20 years at best.
