When you’re in the market for a new roof, you have to think about the longevity and sustainability of the materials you choose. Metal is a reliable roofing option that can add to the value of your home.
Metal roofs typically last from 40-70 years, making metal one of the most durable roofing materials you can buy. Traditional asphalt roofing often needs repairs after 12-20 years. This longevity offers homeowners long-term savings because they won’t need a replacement for several decades. One factor that improves the durability of metal roofing is its low weight, which helps preserve the home’s structural integrity.
Resistance to the Elements
Metal roofing is fire-resistant, which offers additional protection to homes during thunderstorms and lightning strikes. Most metal roofs can withstand hurricane-force winds of over 160 mph because of their interlocking panels. Also, high amounts of rain and moisture will not cause high-quality metal roofing to corrode.
Metal is one of the most energy-efficient roofing materials on the market. These roofs reflect sunlight rather than absorbing it, which helps keep your home cool and reduce electricity costs.
Most metal roofs contain a significant amount of recycled content, which reduces their impact on the environment. Plus, you can recycle the materials used for metal roofing during disposal. Usually, old shingles and other roofing waste are thrown away; this accounts for close to 20 billion pounds of trash in the U.S. each year.
