3 Benefits of a Metal Roof


3 Benefits of a Metal Roof

A metal roof is one of the best investments you can make to boost your home’s value. History shows that metal roofs once illustrated a sign of distinction. While the beauty of a metal roof is timeless, the opportunity to put a metal roof on your house is now more accessible than ever. Delivering beauty, longevity, energy efficiency, and environmental sustainability— metal roofing offers benefits for any size home in every region of the country.

1. A Lasting Investment

While the initial cost of a quality metal roof is higher than roofing materials such as asphalt, it’s an investment that pays returns over a lifetime. A metal roof can last 30 to 50+ years or more with little maintenance, can often be repainted versus replaced, and may even increase the resale value of your home. Let’s not forget metal roofs are very stylish. The look of a metal roof can increase curb appeal for future potential buyers!

2. Tough in Any Condition

Unlike asphalt or other roofing styles, a properly constructed metal roof can handle just about anything Mother Nature can throw at it. Metal roofing can protect your home against extreme temperatures, high winds, hail, marine air, and even fire—all with minimal maintenance. Metal roofs also help shed rain and snow quickly which contributes to the importance of wicking moisture away from your property.

3. Save Energy and Money

Did you know that metal roofing can save you up to 40% on your annual energy costs? Cool-metal roofing uses a reflective solar coating designed to minimize heat buildup and reduce air conditioning costs. State and federal energy savings initiatives including an ENERGY STARⓇ tax credit may also be available. Metal roofs are also made up of at least 25% of recycled material and are 100% recyclable at the end of their life making them environmentally friendly. Installation is a quick and easy process due to the lightweight property of the material and the amount of coverage of each panel. Eco-conscious customers may also like to know that sometimes metal roofing can be installed on top of an existing roof saving money on labor costs and room at the landfill.
