Why a Metal Roof?
Metal Roofing Compared to Traditional Roofing
If you’ve been considering upgrading your home and increasing its resale value, you should know that beautiful and enduring metal roofing is highly valued as one of the top renovation-friendly building materials for rehabbers and new home builders alike.
While the initial cost for a premium metal roof is higher than most other roofing materials, you’ll save money in the long run. A metal roof can last a lifetime, whereas materials like asphalt require reproofing every 10 to 20 years. A metal roof can also increase the resale value of your home.
While your neighbors may re-roof their home many times, a high-quality metal roof will likely be the last roof you’ll ever need. Resistant to cracking, shrinking and eroding, metal roofing systems can also withstand extreme weather conditions including heavy snow loads, hail storms and wildfires.
Design and Versatility
Energy and Cost Efficient
Snow & Ice
Metal roofing is known for its ability to quickly shed snow loads. Typically this happens when the sun comes out and radiant heat passes through the snow load, warming the metal a bit. In some cases, it may be advisable to have snow guards on the roof.
Metal roofing is widely recognized for its resistance to airborne sparks and burning debris. Particularly if you have a wood shingle or shake roof currently, you may enjoy a lower insurance premium with a metal roof.
Heat and Sun
Most roofing systems fail because they dry out, become brittle, and crack with age. Metal roofing systems are completely impervious to this type of damage. They will not curl, crack, or become brittle when exposed to sun and heat. Today’s coating technology also offers a variety of finishes that maintain their integrity and color very well when exposed to heat and sun.
