Let’s suppose that your current roof is worn out, or it is close to doing so. Either way, the time has come to replace it. Eventually, any repairs you complete won’t be as effective as they once were. Here is a look at why you should consider metal roofing.
One of the advantages that metal roofing has over other materials is that it is expected to last much longer. Winter brings with it some brutal weather, such as snow, ice, and freezing rain. Metal roofs can survive the effects of all of these harsh conditions. If your home is also in the woods, then you also need to be on your guard against forest fires. Luckily, metal roofs can provide your home with some protection against that natural disaster as well. Plus, you may also find that your home insurance carrier is more inclined to offer you lower rates because of the roof you chose.
Helps Save Energy
Another reason to choose metal roofing is that they can help you save more energy than traditional roofs can. New construction homes can include metal roofing, but even older homes can have them too – it’s just a matter of timing your remodeling or renovation project. Many different colors, textures, and profiles also help make your new roof more aesthetically appealing. Something else to consider is that many metal roofs are made from recycled materials, which means that it is more eco-friendly than it might appear at face value. Besides, they are low-maintenance and incredibly durable.
Compared to Traditional Roofing
Now let’s take a closer look at how they compare to more traditional roofing materials. Wood and asphalt shingles won’t hold up considering the vast array of weather patterns that your home could be exposed to; copper and aluminum are much better options, even if you didn’t think you could afford to use them before.
Many homeowners have to worry about shingles cupping or curling or coming loose over the years. None of that is a concern when you switch to metal roofing. Warranties also come with your metal roof, and it is a valuable add-on that you might not have the benefit of when you use other kinds of roofing.
