All Your Metal Roofing Questions, Answered


Being an homeowner come with many responsibilities, including staying up to date with home improvement. Not only does remodeling bring aesthetic pleasure to the homeowner, it boots the value of the home. Adding metal roofing to your home is a great place to start.

Metal roofing is a roofing system that incorporates metal shingles rather than their asphalt counterparts. Metal roofs such as aluminum or steel are incredibly resilient, and can protect your house against hurricane level winds up to 160 mph. They will last for over 50 years, which is up to three to seven times longer than typical asphalt roofing.

Installing metal roofing is about 20% cheaper than the cost of installing standing seam, and experienced metal roofing experts will need to re-tighten the exposed fasteners only every 10 to 15 years. Additionally, homes equipped with metal roofing will typically have a 6% resale value gain over those with asphalt roofs. Many insurance companies will reward you with about a 30% discount on your homeowner’s insurance just by installing a metal roof.

Metal roofing is an environmentally conscious choice as well. New metal roofs contain between 30-60% recycled metal content and are 100% recyclable once they are replaced. It can also help you save as much as 25% off your annual home energy bill, with up to 40% off in home cooling costs during the summer, and between 10 to 15% off heating costs in the winter, according to an United States independent report by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 2008. With this much of a reduction in your building’s overall energy waste, our planet will be sure to thank you.

It is incredibly important to choose the right metal roofing contractor considering that research shows more than half of complaints filed against roofers were due to the result of unsatisfactory workmanship. If you are going to be investing your hard earned money, you will surely want the cream of the crop in home roofers to provide you with everything you need!
