If you are looking for a creative alternative to the traditional roofing material, metal roofing is an attractive option. Here are other benefits of having metal roofs for your residential and commercial properties:
Wind and Fire Resistance: Metal roofs are highly resistant to wind and fire damage. In fact, a galvanized steel roof actually withstood a 163 mile per hour hurricane with only an inconsequential amount of damage. There were no leaks, and there was no loss of metal. In addition, metal roofs are tested to withstand 1200F continuous exposure with minimal damage.
Aesthetics: Metal roofing has many colors and textures to choose from to complement the architectural style of any building.
Durability: A metal roof will last 30 years plus on commercial buildings and has can last a life of 40-50 years for residential use.
Insulation: They improve the comfort level inside your home during both summer and winter months by reflecting radiant heat away in the summer while trapping it under your roof during winter.
Maintenance: Metal roofs require almost no maintenance at all! Unlike asphalt roofs that have a good possibility of going bad if not maintained regularly, not even a metal roof will fail unless damaged by hail or other means (such as puncture).
Recycling: Metal roofing is the most recyclable roofing material on the planet. Instead of being the 16th most recycled material, as is wood siding and shingles, metal roofing is number one.
Energy Efficiency: It reflects heat during the summer, saving on your air conditioning costs. It traps heat during the winter, saving you on your heating costs. The more energy-efficient your home or building, the more money you save by using metal roofing.
