Why You Should Choose Metal Roofing

If you are looking for a roof that will last up to 50 years, be energy efficient, require less maintenance, and is more attractive than your typical roof with asphalt shingles, then you should consider replacing your current roof with metal!

Although metal roofing is a bit more expensive than other roofing materials, they have longer life spans and if properly installed, a standing seam metal roof virtually never needs to be replaced. You can also customize your metal roof. They are available in multiple colors, and can be transformed from a traditional vertical seam profile, or be manufactured to resemble wood, slate, shingles, or clay tiles.

Metal roofs are also very protective. Unlike asphalt, wood, tile, cement and fiberglass roofing materials, a metal roof offers superior protection against the elements.

For example:

  • FIRE: A metal roof will not burn or support combustion.
  • WIND: Metal roofs outperformed other roofing products during past hurricanes
  • WATER: Metal is resistant to water absorption, which helps reduce damage to the structure. A metal roof also cannot be penetrated by hail.
  • SNOW: Snow slides easily off a metal roofing system, and in doorways, metal guards prevent snow from falling onto entranceways.

Metal Roofing is also an ideal platform for solar electric and thermal renewable energy solutions. The finishes on the metal panels limit the amount of transferred heat through the roof system and into your building. Metal roofs have coatings that prevent 75 to 80 percent of the sun’s energy from being absorbed into the roof, and can also reduce roof surface temperatures by 60 to 70 degrees.

With so many benefits, why would you choose any other type of roof?
