Metal Roofing is becoming a desirable alternative to the traditional composition roofing products. Besides many distinct advantages over conventional roofing, Metal Roofing is available in a variety of styles and designer colors adding curb appeal and value to your home.
Metal roofing is stronger and more durable than asphalt roofing and can last twice as long as most conventional roofs. That is why metal roofing has long been the choice for many school, government, and industrial buildings.
Metal roofing is superior to composition roofing in all types of weather conditions, and will not deteriorate due to sun exposure. High wind and/or hail will destroy a composition roof, but a metal roof can handle wind speeds of up to 120mph. With UL2218 specifications, you can qualify for up to a 35% discount on your homeowners insurance.
Lighter color metal roofs are Energy Efficient. The sun’s UV rays are reflected, which will keep your house cooler and lower energy costs. The recycled content of steel in metal roofing is much higher than in asphalt shingles. Also, metal roofing is about 1/2 the weight of asphalt shingles and in many cases it can be installed directly over your existing roof which is environmentally friendly as it saves on the cost of removal and disposal.
