MYTH BUSTED! Metal IS Stronger BUT NOT Heavier

Traditional Asphalt shingles are heavy. One layer of composition shingle can weigh as much as or more than 3 lbs per square feet. A home with 2500 square feet of roof, two layers deep may have over a whopping 15,000 lbs of roofing bearing down on the structure!

HOWEVER - Metal roofing is not only stronger, longer lasting and more storm-resistant, but is much lighter than asphalt roofing materials. Metal roofing weighs approximately one seventh of a comparable composition roof, putting less stress on the house structure during the life and while weathering storms.
