Why Should I Choose Metal Roofing?
With all the different materials available for your new roof, is there one that stands out above all the rest? We think so. Metal roofing can be a great choice for any home and almost any buyer. Call us biased, but we’re certain that metal roofing is the way to go. If you’re still not convinced that metal roofing is for you, keep reading to find out all about its multitude of great benefits.
Do You Care About the Environment?
Metal roofing is a great choice for those concerned about the environment because this material has a number of qualities that make it much more environmentally friendly than other options. For one, it is extremely energy efficient. It reflects solar heat away from your home allowing you to use less energy cooling your home in the summer. In the winter, it insulates and traps warm air in your home, preventing it from escaping and being wasted, once again saving energy. It is also recyclable, and durable, preventing you from encouraging additional manufacturing so often and putting materials to good use when you can no longer use them.
Do You Care About Your Wallet?
Sure, on paper it may look like metal roofing is the expensive choice, but if you look a little closer you’ll see how economical it really is. A metal roof will last you, on average, 40 to 50 relatively maintenance free years. That’s half a lifetime where you will barely be spending anything on your roofing at all, it will just work. In that same amount of time, a person with an asphalt shingled home will have had to repair and replace his roof multiple times. So, investing in metal roofing saves you both money and headache over the long run.
Do You Care About Aesthetics?
Yes? Then metal roofing is definitely for you. It is not only gorgeous in its solid, sheeted form- just take a look at any opulent historical building in your area with a luxurious copper roof- but it comes in a wide variety of colors and styles that can be made suitable for any type of home or design aesthetic. Whatever you want your home to look like, metal roofing can achieve. It can give your home a contemporary feel, a pop of color, or even be made to imitate the appearance of other roofing materials like wood shake or shingles, clay tile, and even slate.
Do You Live In An Unfavorable Climate?
Metal roofing is one of the most durable materials out there, we know that based on its impressive longevity alone. It also stands up well to adverse weather conditions like storms, snow, ice, and hail and performs excellently in all climates. No matter what you throw at it, a metal roof can withstand it. Not even fire can permeate its barrier. While your neighbors will be up on their roofs surveying the damage after every hail or windstorm, you can rest comfortably knowing that your metal roof is in perfect condition.
