If you’re looking for a product that adds major value to your home, consider a metal roof. While metal roofs can be a much greater investment, the following benefits can far outweigh the disadvantages, especially if you plan on being in your home for many years to come.
Long-Lasting: When installed properly, metal roofs can last over 50 years. This is certainly unlike traditional asphalt that only lasts somewhere between 12 – 20 years.
Wind Resistant: The structure of metal roofs are installed with interlocking panels. This allows for maximum wind resistance. With this, other than the occasional inspection, metal roofs require minimal maintenance.
Energy Efficiency: Metal roofs help to keep homes cool by reflecting solar radiant heat. You can find homes with metal roofs typically have a cooling savings of 10 – 25%. In the long term, the additional cost spent on a metal roof can be recuperated by the savings of cooling and heating costs.
Environmentally Friendly: Many metal roofs can contain somewhere between 25% – 95% of recycled content. When the roof needs to be replaced, after many years of use, metal roofs are still 100% recyclable. This is vastly different from traditional asphalt roofing, which leaves about 20 billion pounds in US landfills every year.
Unique Style: With endless colors, finishes, and shapes in a variety of materials, like tin, zinc, aluminum, copper, or galvanized steel, you are sure to find a metal roof to coordinate with your home. Yet, unlike traditional asphalt roofing, there are significantly more choices in metal roofing, allowing you to make it as simplistic or striking as your taste desires.
