Having a new roof put on your home or business is a major investment that can have a great impact on the functional lifetime, appearance and resale value of your building. It is not a decision to be taken lightly and you should take the time to really consider your options before you decide.
These days, many homeowners are opting to have metal roofs installed instead of the more traditional shingle and tar type. After weighing their options they have decided the advantages of metal roofing make this a better choice for them. The advantages of a metal roof include:
A metal roof can be manufactured in a wide range of colors and styles. They can even be made to look like they are made from tile or shingle roofing material.
Metal roofing can be configured to meet any shape or angle without damaging its ability to protect the building from the elements. Also, metal roofing is very easily installed over existing roofing material so there is no need for the lengthy, expensive and filthy removal process.
A metal roof, when properly installed, can last many lifetimes. People who decide to have metal roofing installed on their home, under normal circumstances, will never have to think about having a roof installed again.
Metal is the best roofing material choice if you live in areas with extreme weather. Strong winds will not blow shingles off your roof and the flexibility of the metal means that it may be the best material to choose in earthquake prone areas. It is also naturally fire resistant so, although it can not prevent house fires, it can prevent their rapid spread.
Metal roofs are the green choice for several reasons. They can be coated in Energy Star certified finishes that will help to protect your home from excess heat build up, their assembly allows for ample insulation to protect from heat and cold and most manufacturers offer materials that are largely made from recycled metals.
