You’ve decided it’s time to install a new roof. Have you considered a new metal roof? If you
haven’t, you should! A metal roof is a great choice for your family’s home for more reasons more than just the aesthetics.
A metal roof lasts between 40 and 70 years, when maintained properly—a huge difference compared to the 12 to 20 years you can get from traditional asphalt shingles.
Depending on the type of metal, some metal roofs can withstand up to 140 mile per hour winds. They also require less maintenance than traditional shingles. They should be inspected periodically to make sure no repairs are required, however.
Unlike asphalt shingles, a metal roof is not flammable. Should lightning strike your home with a metal roof you can rest easy knowing it won’t burst into flames.
You can reduce your cooling costs by 10 to 25 percent thanks to the solar radiant reflecting properties of the metal.
If purchasing products that are environmentally conscious is important to you, a metal roof is perfect. They are made of 25 to 95 percent recycled materials and are 100 percent recyclable at the end of the roof’s life.
A new roof is a big investment and one you should do all of your research for. A metal roof is safe, durable, energy efficient, environmentally friendly and has the staying power of 40 to 70 years. Install a metal roof and rest assured that you and your family are safe. Give us a call today or visit our website to discuss metal roof options!
