Though metal roofing might not look like a residential roof, it most certainly is! Metal roofing has become a great asset to a family household for several reasons, though some love the look of metal and some don't. Here are some things to consider:
Benefits to having a metal roof on your residential home:
For starters, there’s longevity. While asphalt shingles, tile, or concrete roofs are great, metal roofs have been proven to be the most efficient way to get the most out of your roof. The lifespan tends to set right around 60+ years (depending on the type of metal that was used, of course).
Not to mention the durability of owning a metal roof. It’s able to withstand many types of weather such as heavy rain, hail, snow, mold, mildew...you name it, all while being free from damage! It’s even been able to withstand extreme fires with high-intensity heat on more than one occasion so it’s no wonder that metal roofs are as popular as they are.
When it comes to maintenance, metal roofs are a breeze.
If the metal roof has been completely installed, the maintenance seems to be relatively simple! The main upkeep would be minor issues such as looking for leaves that have been built upon the roof as well as branches or any other minimal debris after a storm has passed through.
Eco-friendly is our friend.
With most metals being recyclable, your metal roof is extremely eco-friendly and could actually be used in other metal products later down the road. Some of these materials to build the metal roof are from pre-consumers (scrap materials that have been stored away during manufacturing for future use) or post-consumers (materials that have already been used at one point in time and are ready for another use). In fact, metals such as zinc and aluminum are actually found in the Earth’s crust making it replenishable and sustainable over time.
Overall, metal roofs are a great way to protect your home and family while remaining cost-efficient. Speak to one of our experts at Storm Safe Roofing today if you’d like to learn more about how metal roofs are able to protect your home at (256)-615-1903.
