If you are in the market for a new roof, you have a big decision on your hands. There are several different types of roofing, such as asphalt shingles, copper, slate, and metal. Metal roofing has won over several homeowners and business owners over the years. Here are the top benefits of choosing a metal roof.
- Durable – One benefit that has amazed customers is the durability of a metal roof. With any product that you buy, you are likely looking for quality and a long lifespan. Metal roofs are known for being long lasting. If installed correctly, a metal roof can last from anywhere between 40 and 70 years, with a manufacturer warranty for a good chunk of those years.
- Energy Efficient – Metal roofs may cost a little extra than your traditional roof. However, a metal roof could save you money on your heating and cooling bill. Since metal roofs are reflective, it reflects the sun’s heat instead of absorbs it, which can help regulate your home’s temperature.
- Environmentally Friendly – Other materials, such as asphalt shingles, are made up of petroleum products. Additionally, asphalt shingles should be replaced every 15 to 20 years, which sends a heavy load of asphalt shingles to a landfill.
- Stylish – Ten years ago you may have turned your head when thinking about a metal roof for your home. Now, you have an array of colors and finishes to choose from to express your style and personality.
