The Advantages Of Installing Metal Roofing On Your Home

Metal Roof on Home

Is your roof in need of minor repairs or replacement? Have you considered all of your options when it comes to replacing your roof with quality material that can enhance the look and efficiency of your home? Perhaps it’s time to consider calling Len’s Roofing to have a conversation about installing a metal roof.

Advantages of Installing A Metal Roof

Key players in the construction industry are now pushing for energy-efficient homes to reduce our overall carbon footprint on the earth. Metal roofing positively impacts structure performance by providing sustainability, longevity, and durability. In addition, they are a sophisticated, cost-effective, efficient and dependable alternative to any other roofing system available on the market today. Another reason homeowners are interested in a metal roof is due to the fact that the average life span of an asphalt shingle roof is only 12-20 years, compared with up to 50 years for a metal roof. Other advantages of metal roof installation include:

  • Longevity and cost-effectiveness It is typical for a metal roof that is properly installed to last over fifty years. The service life of the average home is around fifty to sixty years, and during this time, ownership can change hands many times. Metal roof installation benefits both structure owners and the environment by lowering the demand to replace roofing more than once during the life of the structure.

  • Durability In addition to providing you many years of resilience and protection, a metal roof is highly durable and can withstand all types of environmental stresses and adverse weather conditions. Metal roof panels can offer resistance to both fire and wind, as well as provide valuable protection against air and water leakage. During Florida’s peak hurricane season, this extra dose of durability and protection against the elements is appreciated by many homeowners, for it provides additional peace of mind that your home and valuable assets will be protected during this turbulent time. It is not uncommon for a metal roof to be able to withstand wind gusts in excess of 140 miles per hour--you cannot put a price on this strength and the assurance it gives you that your most valuable asset is fortified and protected against the elements.

  • Sustainability Most metal roofs are made from 25-35 percent recyclable materials, with nearly 100 percent of a metal roof being recyclable at the end of its life cycle. Due to the reflective nature of this material, these roofs are known to dramatically reduce energy costs and improve heating and cooling efficiency throughout your home, making them one of the most cost-effective options for homeowners thinking about their long-term investment. A metal roof works well with all types of insulation, helping it to maintain maximum heating and cooling efficiency. The fact that metal roofing is so sustainable makes it an excellent option for protecting your home.

  • They look great! The aesthetic look of metal roofs has improved dramatically in recent years; in many cases, you are able to achieve the look of asphalt in a variety of grains and colors that closely resembles a traditional roofline. Not only do you get the durability and longevity of a metal roof, but the array of colors and unique styles that you can choose from allows you to customize the look and feel of your home. From rich colors and vibrant patterns to cool, sleek tones, you can be sure that your roof will look beautiful and perform well for years to come.
