Metal Roofs are the Right Choice All Around
Friday, May 15, 2015
Today’s metal roofing comes in a wide variety of styles to choose from. Although the shingles are always metal, they can appear to be other materials like clay, asphalt, slate, cedar shake, other wood shingles, stone, and more.
In fact, manufacturers of the metal roof have done a lot to take us away from the thought of the old tin roof. They simply aren’t boring and industrial looking any longer.
With features like being able to stand up to hurricane force winds, they’re becoming even more desirable. Punishing winds, rain, hail storms, snow, debris, impacts, and other conditions that would damage or destroy a regular roof have difficulty affecting the metal roof.
Metal roofs also help with energy costs. And you can add another layer of insulation directly onto the metal roof structure. They truly can be one of the best investments you’ll ever make.
Every day, here in America, we spend our time working and not thinking much about things at home while we’re away. But the roof of our homes shouldn’t be an area we neglect. In fact, the roof structure should be considered as one of the more important parts of your home.
Since the roof shingles are the topmost layer that protects everything underneath it, including your family, you want to be sure it does the right job at protecting you all,
As for protection, there’s not many other options out there that can give you the same superb resistant to damages as the metal roof can.
Being able to withstand hurricane force winds speaks volumes because it’s very easy for a roof to get damaged with wind that hits it just the right way to begin lifting a corner of the shingle. Once wind hits this area, it’s not difficult to life off the entire shingle or several at a time (or tear them off).
Another reason to opt for a metal roof is it’s resistance to mold, algae, and mildew growth. That’s because it’s resistant to water damage or moisture. Your roof needs to be completely sealed, but when just one shingle gets damaged, your roof will no longer be water tight. That lets in mold and other problems that you don’t want to deal with in your home.
Out of all the other roofing material choices, metal is the strongest type of shingle you can get. Even though it’s strong, it’s still a little flexible which helps during installation and resisting impacts and temperature changes. Metal roofs can withstand the weight of a person, and can be installed on any roof.
They can also be installed over existing roofs. For instance, say you have a mobile home and you added a couple of new rooms on. You can have a metal roof installed over the entire structure plus can even get an extra porch covered area rather than trying to replace the existing mobile home roof.
All around, the metal roof is the right choice to make when it comes to replacing your roof. You may also be able to save some money on your taxes, just contact a professional tax consultant to find out more. If you need a roof for your home, just call us at the number below to learn more.
