The Benefits Of Metal

When To Change To Metal

Metal is by no means a new form of roofing. However, many homeowners have trouble transitioning to metal after owning a shingle roof. Most people do not purchase many roofs throughout their lifetime, so it would be sensible if they didn’t know everything about changing to a new system. Here we will offer to educate as best we can on the reasons to give metal a try.

A well-installed metal roof can dash many of a home owner’s previous fears.

  • Durability: These roofs are just as sturdy as traditional shingle systems. Unlike organic and some asphalt shingles, detritus and debris won’t degrade metal over time if left for extended periods. They bring resilient durability to a home along with a slick clean aesthetic. Many metal roofs can last up to sixty years which will generally last longer than most homeowners will expect to be in a home.
  • Aesthetics: Additionally, large panel roofs aren’t the only option anymore! With layered metal roof options that make the roof look closer to how most asphalt or organic roofs look allowing you to achieve the benefits of metal without making your home look like a barn. Metal can come in a variety of colors more than just shades of beige and gray. Searing sky blues, popping reds, subtle chalky browns like building bricks, pleasant woody greens.
  • Day to day living: Even when it rains it sounds just like any other roof with no loud reverberation. Lightning is no more attracted to a metal roof than an asphalt shingle roof.
  • Environmentally: Most metal roofs last much longer than asphalt do and are also more environmentally friendly. Given that metal is one hundred percent recyclable and reduces energy costs it comes up being better for the environment than asphalt or organic roofs.
