If you are in need of a roof, you have an important decision before you: Who should install your roof? And unless you’re a roofer yourself, the choice will probably come down to which local roofing contractor you pick. Does it seem to you that one roofing contractor is just as good as another? If it does, you should know that not all roofing contractors are created equal. From avoiding scams to ensuring that your property will be respected, we’ve created a comprehensive set of 10 tips to help you find the best roofing contractor.

However, let’s say that you’re not there yet and you are simply making the decision of what type of roofing contractor to contact. There are so many options out there, from the standard asphalt shingle roof to cedar shakes, clay tiles, and slate. So what’s the best option for you? Here are our reasons why we think you should go with a roofing contractor who installs metal roofs.

1. A roofer who installs metal roofs cares about quality

Why do some people get into the business of installing metal roofs? The main reason is that they care about quality. Any roofer can put up shingles and get a lot of business simply because that’s a popular way to go. That’s how the founders of Hippo Roof got started. However, once they got into the roofing business, they started asking some questions and applying some critical thinking to the method of using asphalt shingles. There was simply too much roof damage going on, and it didn’t seem right that homeowners were being forced to pay to re-roof their houses over and over, just to keep themselves sheltered and dry. Their conclusion? Asphalt shingles are simply not the best way to go. Being people who cared about quality, there was only one logical decision: move into a type of roofing that DOES bring the quality and longevity that they wanted to be known for. Thus the decision was made to move away from doing shingle roofs and move toward metal roofs.

If high-quality work is in someone’s blood, they won’t feel true to themselves to do anything less. If you want that kind of roofer, look for someone who installs metal roofs.

2. A roofer who installs metal roofs has a more skilled workforce

Anyone can nail down shingles and call it a day. However, installing metal roofs takes a lot more skill, finesse, and attention to detail. This means that the roofing company has to hire a more skilled workforce, invest more time in training them, and have each person prove that they are the kind of person who can consistently do high-precision work.

These are the kinds of people who are clean-cut, responsible, and hard-working. They’re loyal to the job because they have families to provide for. They don’t hop from place to place and from job site to job site, getting fired for shoddy work and then getting hired at the next place. They care about the work they do and know that says something about them, and they understand that the best way to go is to treat every customer with the respect and service that they’d want for themselves if the roles were reversed.

Who do you want on your property during the completion of your roofing job? Joe Schmo? or a responsible, hard-working set of roofers who care about the work they do and do it with excellence? If you want skill and excellence, the metal-roofing crew is the one you’re looking for.

3. A metal roof will probably outlive you

Finally, when you are making the decision of what type of roofer to call, don’t forget the main reason why metal roofs are so popular. They last practically forever. The metal roof you install today won’t have to be replaced in 10 or 20 years. Hippo Roof offers a 50-year warranty on our roofs, and we expect them to last much longer than that. Metal roofs are hurricane resistant, energy-efficient, and extremely durable against everything that the elements can hurl at them. Where’s the downside to that?
