Metal has become a popular choice of roofing material over the past several years, but why should you consider it if you’re constructing a new building or replacing an old roof? Here are a few reasons why metal roofing might just be the best choice for you.
It may not seem like it at first glance, but metal roofs are extremely durable. They are resistant to weather damage, unlikely to allow water into your home, and will never rot, chip, split, crack, or peel due to dampness. The standard coating that is applied to most metal roofing helps reflect sun rays and make these roofs very energy-efficient, especially during warmer months.
In addition, metal roofing is also good for the environment. While most other roofing materials will have to be replaced within 15-to-30 years, metal roofing can last well over 50 years. This vastly reduces the amount of roofing material being dumped into landfills all across the country. Metal roofs are also ideal for the installation of solar panels.
Metal roofing is also a low-maintenance way to raise the value of your home. Many potential buyers enjoy the aesthetic appeal of a well-matched, well looked-after metal roof should you ever decide to sell your home, and while the initial cost of metal roofing can be somewhat high when compared to other roofing materials, the money you save by not having to replace your roof every 15-to-20 years will add up quickly.
