3 Advantages of a Metal Roof


Metal roofing is a popular, affordable, and durable option.

Is your business or home in need of  a new roof? If so you should seriously consider going the metal roof route. A metal roof gives a unique and distinct look to your building, and is the most durable and environmentally friendly option out there. If you really want to stand out you could go the ultra-stylish way of the copper roof, which can last for hundreds of years, or opt for a more economical choice. If you are thinking about getting a new roof, here are a few things to keep in mind about the advantages of a metal roof.

It Lasts

A metal roof will last you just about as long as your house. Since the panels used for a metal roof are interlocked when installed they are all but water-proof, and the hard and slippery nature of metal means rain and snow slide right off. What about rust, you ask? A metal roof is treated to prevent rust from forming before the roof is painted to whichever color the homeowner likes. Metal roofs don’t need to be maintained the way other roofs do, either, but should be inspected regularly to make sure there aren’t any problems.

It’s Durable

This may surprise you, but metal is a pretty strong material. Metal roofs are fire resistant, and can even withstand winds of up to 150 miles per hour!  Plus, when combined with the right paint, a metal roof can help decrease cooling costs since it reflects away more sunlight than other roofing materials. Once your shiny new roof is installed, you’ll want to keep it from getting dinged up as much as possible, so stay on the lookout for suspect tree limbs.

It’s Environmentally Friendly

A metal roof can be made with anywhere from 25-95% recycled materials without sacrificing its’ signature longevity or strength.  The reduction in energy costs means a more green home or business, and the fact that a metal roof can last for decades means less frequent replacement.
