Metal Roof Benefits
In addition to its appearance, metal roofing offers a number of benefits, most of which can save homeowners money. Advantages of metal roofs are:
Low maintenance: one of the greatest things about metal roofing is its low-maintenance characteristics. While shingle roofs, for instance, can truly enhance the appearance of your home, they require much more maintenance than metal roofs.
High durability: even better than metal roofing’s low-maintenance quality is its ability to last for years – and we mean years. Some metal roofs can last for 40, 50, even 60 years without starting to fail!
Energy efficiency: a metal roof can more easily reflect (instead of absorb) sunlight, which in turn keeps your home cooler and can help lower your cooling costs. This is not to say you can expect all your energy problems to disappear if you install a metal roof!
Protection: metal roofs are very resistant to almost anything bad you can think of – fire, mildew, insect damage and erosion. They also are not as easily damaged by severe weather like high winds, hail and heavy rain and snow. In fact, during hurricanes, standing seam metal roofs are one of the best types of roofs to have!
Low risk of cracking or shrinking: this one is pretty self-explanatory – as we said, metal roofing is extremely durable and will look great for a long time.
No matter what type of home you have, a metal roof will complement and add to it. Your roof will stand out in the neighborhood – and you don’t even need to spend hours maintaining it!
