The Merits of Metal Roofing – On the House

The Merits of Metal Roofing

By on February 15, 2014

If you’ve got leaks and drips from peak to border, a brand new roof might be in order. Today you’ll learn how a new metal roof might serve you better.

While they cost more initially, metal roofs pay off in the long run, with lifetime transferable warranties, meaning you (or future owners) will never have to re-roof.

And because they’re fireproof, you might also pay less for homeowners’ insurance. Another big benefit is greater comfort and energy savings. Metal roofs reflect more heat from intense sun, while asphalt shingles absorb heat and transfer it indoors.

And, contrary to what you might think, the sound of rain on metal is no greater than on traditional roofing.

Metal roofs are earth-friendly, too (millions of old asphalt shingles wind up in landfills). Plus, metal roofing is lightweight, can be installed faster, and comes in elegant styles from shakes to tiles. Wanna cut down your overhead, overhead? Try metal when you re-roof. You may contact a few roofing contractors to get estimates for your roofing project.
