Have you ever considered a metal roof? Not just another pretty surface, metal roofs offer several distinct advantages over other roofing materials.
Metal roofs come in a wide variety of colors and textures and can blend beautifully with virtually any home or building style. Metal roofing is so versatile that it can even take on the appearance of wood shingles, slate or terra cotta tiles.
Wood shingle, asphalt, and tile roofing materials are all weakened with repeated exposure to weather. Deteriorating gradually over time, roofs made of these materials last between 12 and 20 years, depending on the product. Many metal roofs have warranties as long as 50 years, and they are made to last indefinitely. A metal roof can last a lifetime.
Once your metal roof is installed, it requires minimal maintenance. Removal of debris, gutter cleaning, and occasional (optional) touch up painting, are the only regular upkeep needed.
Metal roofs are environmentally friendly. They are completely recyclable and most are made of recycled materials. Metal roofs weigh less than other roofing materials, so less fossil fuel is burned transporting them. And buildings with metal roofs stay cooler in the summer, saving electricity.
While metal roofs typically cost more, the longevity of a metal roof means you will save in the long run when your metal roof does not need to be replaced. With up to 95% solar reflexivity, a metal roof better dissipates the sun’s heat, keeping your attic cooler in the summer, which will cut cooling costs. An added bonus for Texans: some insurance companies in the great state offer a homeowner’s insurance discount of up to 35% for homes with metal roofs. Add that to very low maintenance costs and you’ll see that its future savings make a metal roof a smart investment.
