Longevity: A metal roof of any kind will outlast most other roofing materials. When properly maintained (maintenance is minimal), you should expect the roof to last the lifetime of it’s owner!
Durability: Since the material is metal, it resists common inhibitors such as fire, extreme weather, mold and mildew, as well as the destructive ultraviolet radiation. Metal roofs do not experience common problems associated with conventional roofs such as warping, splitting, peeling, or cracking. Additionally, since metal roofing is resistant to the aforementioned, home owner insurance policies are often adjusted.
Curb Appeal: The appeal of metal roofing has drastically increased in the past several years. With emerging styles mimicking the traditional roofing selections, the opportunity to increase the aesthetic appearance of your home has greatly increased. The color choices vary from your typical standard, traditional, stunning, to industrial colors.
Energy Efficient and Environmentally Friendly: Aside from the fact that a metal roof can be installed over an existing roof (also a cost savings), it provides an additional layer of protection or “insulation”, as a metal roof innately reflects the sun rays from seeping in and also blocks the house generated heat from exiting. Any color that is reflective, will offer this benefit. Ultimately, in the summer a proper colored roof (not just white!) will deflect the sun’s rays, while in the winter, the metal roof will provide an insulating barrier that prevents heat loss. All of this means, less money out of your pocket!!
