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.

Longevity

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.

Durability

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.

Safety

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.

Energy Efficiency

You can reduce your cooling costs by 10 to 25 percent thanks to the solar radiant reflecting properties of the metal.

Environmentally Friendly

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.

    It’s kind of comforting to know that metal roofing isn’t flammable. Our neighbors just had a fire in their house last week, and our family has been so scared because of it. Now I’m a little paranoid that something could happen to us, but I trust that nothing with happen.

    My wife and I were informed recently that our roof was in need of replacing. We’ve been looking at a sheet metal roof, but had heard that metal roofs can be pricey. According to the article though, a metal roof can reduce the cooling costs of your home by up to 25%. I think we feel more comfortable about getting a metal roof knowing that it can pay for itself down the road.

    I never considered how metal roofs aren’t flammable. This would be extremely beneficial for our house since there have been multiple wildfires in California lately. I’ll have to consider switching over to a metal one instead of shingles so that I can keep our home safe.
