Selecting the material for your home’s roof is an important decision that will be based on several factors including the style of your home, relevant building codes and regulations, council requirements, aesthetic appeal, and energy efficiency expectations.

As a homeowner, you should ideally consult with a roofing professional who can advise you on the best roofing material after considering all of these factors.

Pantex Roofing Systems recommends metal roofing for homes that have a steep or flat roofline. As a metal roofing specialist, Pantex Roofing lists out the four important reasons why these roofs are hard to match.


One of the most durable roofing materials available, metal roofing can last for more than 60 years against the 25 years that can be expected from traditional roofs. Additionally, metal roofs are resistant to fires, pests, storms, strong winds, UV rays and just about anything the environment throws their way.


Metal roofing is available in a range of profiles as well as a wide variety of contemporary and traditional colours, making it highly versatile – this roof can be adapted to suit personal taste, climate and building style. If your main concerns are durability, style and affordability, you will be able to find a metal roof that suits your needs.

Environment friendly

Did you know metal roofs can save homeowners up to 40% on their energy expenditure on air conditioning and heating? Considered a ‘cool roof’, metal roofs are amazing insulators, and can keep the occupants in comfort inside regardless of the weather outside. Metal roofs are also 100% recyclable, so they are unlikely to end up as waste in landfill.


The initial cost of metal roofing can be higher than most other roofing materials; however, their longevity means that they cost far less in the long run. Most other roofing types need to be replaced every 25 years but metal roofing can last more than 60 years and comes with a 30-50 year warranty. If you treat your metal roof well, it is likely you will never have to replace it.
