Is a metal roof a wise investment for your home or business?
When it comes time to replace your roof, you have options. Many homeowners and business owners are considering metal roofing, but find themselves balking at the price. We would urge those homeowners to reconsider. While this type of roof can be more expensive upfront, the advantages add up over time, creating a very wise long-term investment.
Keep reading to learn why you should consider a metal roof for your home or business.
Widen Your Perspective
The upfront cost of your roof is only one factor in the total cost of the roof – i.e., the cost of materials, installation, maintenance, and repairs over time, as well as eventual replacement. Other roofing materials are less durable and need to be replaced more often. A metal roof, on the other hand, rarely needs repairs, can last for decades without replacement, and can add to the value of your home.
Consider the Superior Protection
A metal roof will not burn or combust, meaning it’s safer for homes and businesses alike. Metal roofs are also very resistant to heavy winds, cutting down on repairs, and it’s impervious to water, so the chances of leaks are much reduced. Metal roofs can also stand up to the punishment of hail. Finally, on the rare occasion that we get snow, you’ll find that the snow slides right off the roof.
Don’t Forget Energy Savings
Metal roofs are particularly energy efficient in warm climates like ours. When you coat your metal roof in a low-glass paint finish, it will reflect most of the sun’s rays. This will keep your roof cooler, which will keep your attic cooler, which can help you save money on energy bills each and every summer.
