Known for their longevity and durability, metal roofs come in a variety of thicknesses and types, including galvanized steel, aluminum, zinc, and copper. They are capable of lasting 5 times longer than traditional asphalt metal, offering more protection from things like heavy rain, ice, snow, winds up to 160 mph, and impact from hail and tree limbs. Their ability to withstand the elements means they won’t split, crack, dry out, warp, or leak like other common roofing materials, requiring little-to-no maintenance. As a non-combustible material, metal roofs won’t catch fire like other materials that are treated with a flame retardant. Most modern metals roofs come with fire retardant ratings that could help you save money on your home’s insurance premium.Get A Quote
Many homeowners worry that metal roofs won’t match their homes aesthetic style, but with a wide range of profiles, colors, and styles, metal roofs are suitable for any architectural style. Metal also serves as a very green option when selecting a roofing material. Containing no petroleum by products, metal roofs use minimal resources during production and can be recycled an unlimited number of times. Thinking about your energy bill? The reflective surface of metal roofs can save you up to 25% on your annual utilities!
So how much does it cost?
This is the part you’re probably wondering about most. All of these benefits come with a price tag. Most general roofing contractors lack the specialized tools, training, and experience required to properly install metal roofing materials. Which makes installing a metal roof more expensive than something like asphalt. Hiring a roofing contractor that doesn’t have the proper training and experience could cost you thousands of dollars in damages or repairs. When installed correctly by an experienced contractor, metal roofs can last any from 50 to 150 years depending on the material and climate.
