What Are The Benefits Of A Metal Roof?
Metal roofs are an increasingly common choice for both residential homes and commercial businesses. But this begs the question – why is this?
Metal roofs are a great choice for a variety of reasons. In addition to looking great, these roofs have exceptional durability. While your typical asphalt roof may last for 20 years, metal roofs can last for 50 years or more. This difference in durability alone is worth the investment.
In addition to this durability, we provide labor warranties and manufacturer warranties for up to 50 years!
These roofs are also impenetrable. Ice and snow slide right off of metal roofs and it is impossible for water to seep inside. This helps to protect against heavy snow buildup and leaks. Additionally, metal roofs are fire resistant. This helps prevent damage in the event of a house fire as well as prevents the roof from combusting should lightning strike your home during a severe storm.
Metal roofs can also be seen to have another benefit over other types of roofs, especially asphalt roofs. These are relatively low maintenance compared to asphalt. They do not require the same regular maintenance that asphalt roofs require. Metal roofs are also usually made from at least some recyclable materials and can be recycled after the life of the roof has ended.
Finally, metal roofs are able to reflect heat unlike common asphalt roofs. The reflection of the sun’s rays will keep your house cooler which will reduce energy costs.
