Metal Roofing Benefits
Modern technology makes it possible for manufacturers to create metal roofing that offers benefits few other materials can duplicate. A new or replacement metal roof is:
A metal roof is an investment that can last 50 years or more. While most other materials need to be replaced every 15-20 years, metal systems are often the last ones homeowners need to install. Roofing is also low maintenance.
Metal roofs are one of the most beautiful types available. Customers can choose from various materials, styles, construction types, coatings, and paint options. Some products mimic the look of materials like cedar shake, slate, asphalt shingle, and clay-tile roofing.
Clients can select residential standing seam panels that provide the look of traditional metal roofs and come in an array of colors. It is easy to find options that complement any home style.
Although customers often choose metal roofing because it offers protection against harsh weather, the hearty material is well-suited to any climate. A professionally installed roof stands up to a wide variety of climate conditions.
Metal systems resist hail damage, and hail that tears off conventional roofs doesn’t harm them. Roofing is fire resistant and will not catch fire if embers land on surfaces. Roofs can withstand 140 mph wind gusts.
Galvanized steel roofing stands up to marine conditions, making it perfect for coastal homes. Materials will not rot, warp, or crack, and manufacturers typically include
warranties against fading, chalking, and rusting.
Metal is the most sustainable roofing material on the market. Roofing is made with 25% recycled materials, and roofs are 100% recyclable at the end of their lives. Technicians can often install a metal system over an existing roof, which reduces the amount of material that ends up in landfills.
Homeowners who install metal roofs can reduce energy costs as much as 40%. Metal roofing is an excellent insulator and one of the most energy-efficient roofing materials. Manufacturers add finishes that also impact energy savings.
Simple, unpainted metal roofs reflect solar radiation better than asphalt, which absorbs heat. Granular coated or pre-painted systems reflect solar energy and re-emit most of the solar radiation they absorb.
Technicians Provide Expert Installation or Replacement
Experienced technicians install metal roofing according to manufacturers’ directions, to maximize its benefits. Installation is fast compared to other materials because the metal is lightweight, and technicians work with panels instead of small shingles.
Technicians can also replace existing roofs with metal ones. They are often able to install them without removing existing materials because of the metals light weight. Since workers do not need to tear off old roofing, replacement projects are usually fast.
Professional Repairs Extend Metal Roofing Life
Metal roofs look good for decades with just routine cleaning. However, it is essential to examine roofs regularly to ensure they remain sound, and professionals offer expert inspection services.
Technicians inspect roofs, remove debris, clean surfaces, and identify problems like scuffs or scratches. They also check for hidden issues such as leaks. Professionals can repaint or repair roofing as needed and restore the beauty of surfaces.
