Buying a new roof for your home can be a huge investment. Before you decide on which type of roofing suits your property the best, you will have to go through each type and the pros and cons of using it.
Residential metal roofing is one of the most popular choices due to a number of reasons. A metal roof is made from metal pieces or tiles known for its high resistance, impermeability and longevity. These roofs are commonly composed of zinc, copper and steel alloys.
Other roofing types deteriorate as they age. On the other hand, metal roofing provides the following benefits for a long period of time.
Metal roofs can extend its lifespan up to a hundred years, with most roofing companies providing 50-year warranties. This makes metal roofs the most cost efficient roofing material in the long run.
This roofing type is very eco-friendly. Metal roofs can reduce the energy bills by 20 to 25% depending on the installation. This is because metal reflects the sun’s radiant heat. Also, these roofs are made up of recycled materials and are also recyclable once they reach the end of their lifespan.
This type of roofing has minimal upkeep. Compared to shingle roofs and other types of roofs, metal roofs won’t need costly repairs. The roof is washable by water so it gets cleaned when it’s raining. (Just make sure to check for damage regularly.)
This is one of the toughest roofing materials available. When properly coated, it doesn’t crack or corrode. It’s also known for its resistance to fire and impact.
