Merits Of Metal Roofing

home-slider-full-shake-2Metal Roofing 

Who doesn’t love the romantic sound of rain on a tin roof? When you think of metal roofing you likely picture in your mind a bamboo hut in the tropics or a snug log cabin in the woods with a rustic and ridged metal roof. However, advances in technology, design and construction have made massive changes in metal roofing materials and applications.

Today, homeowners have the option of installing a metal roof that is much more elegant and durable than metal roofs of just a decade ago. There are now a diverse array of choices in materials and styles available, dependent on the look you wish to achieve.

Typically crafted from recycled metals such as stainless steel, bronze, aluminum, and copper, modern metal roofs can be designed to resemble traditional shingles or roof tiles while offering extended durability with a sleek, contemporary twist.

Benefits Of Metal Roofing

Known for strength and durability, metal roofs come with a 30 to 50-year replacement warranty. The roof outlives the useable life of the structure and can again be recycled. If properly galvanized, metal roofs are rust-resistant and rot-proof.

Metal roofs are impervious to any weather, withstanding with ease the hottest and coldest temps. Metal roofs repel hurricane force winds, rain, hail, and insect infestations. Some metal roof manufacturers even guarantee that their roofs dent proof and will stand up to hail, blowing debris, and footprints. Metal roofs are low-maintenance and easy to clean.

Metal roofs are waterproof and because of their slick construction and strength can withstand heavy snow loads and ice slides off. Metal roofs are non-combustible, fireproof and no more susceptible to a lightning strike than any other type of roofing material.

Metal roofs are energy efficient, reflecting the heat of the sun during the summer, thus saving money on utility expenses. Metal roofs are typically Installed with a gap between exterior surfaces and the roofing structure. When cold winter winds blow, this gap allows ventilation and interior thermal reflectivity to deflect heat back into the home.

Drawbacks Of Metal Roofs

Metal roofs are not cheap, in fact, they are quite expensive when compared to most other roofing materials. However, the old saying is true, “You get what you pay for.” Metal roofs add substantial value to a home and are a great way to enhance curb appeal and visual interest. If you plan to remain in your home for an extended period, you will more than “get your money’s worth” from a metal roof.

Metal roofs are noisy. If you are a light sleeper, you may not appreciate the sweet sound of rain on the roof. When rain is intense, the roof can sound like someone tap dancing on the roof. If the noise is an irritation, insulation can address the issue.

Metal roofs are slick, so extra care must be taken when walking on the roof surface. Some metal roofs are texturized to look like wood shingles, which provides a bit of traction. However, inspecting a metal roof, or any roof, is a job best left to the professionals. When it comes to home maintenance issues, always remember safety first.
