Most people still think of the traditional asphalt shingle roof as the “obvious” choice. While asphalt is certainly not a bad option, there are several advantages to choosing metal as your roofing system.
Metal Roofs are Technologically Innovative. We put our materials and designs to the test every day We have a proven history of staying on the leading edge of residential metal roofing. Our intricately detailed installations and products are well respected as leading the industry in terms of beauty.
Metal Roofs are Durable and Strong. During hurricane season here in Florida, you really want to have a roof covering on your home that is able to withstand some very strong winds. Metal roofing systems have passed wind and uplift tests that are rigorously demanding, testing roofing materials simulating wind speeds over 150 miles per hour.
Metal roofing systems also lead the way in fire protection for your home. Because of your metal roof having that extra strength (and resistance to fire), you may be able to qualify for lower premiums on your homeowner’s insurance. Check with your insurance agent for information.
Metal Roofs are Beautiful. Metal roofing systems carry valuable and meaningful warranties against fading, chipping, chalking, and rusting. A metal roof comes in lasting colors and themes that will fit a myriad of tastes and styles, ranging from vertical panels, or metal shingles that resemble slate, tile or even wood. The long life and extra protection of a metal roof not only protects but enhances the beauty and value of your home.
Metal Roofs are Virtually Maintenance-Free. Most roofs will require some combination of maintenance or repair over their lifetime. Not so with a metal roof. No maintenance means no hassle and no ongoing expense. Of course there are rare exceptions, such as hail, which can dent the metal.
A Metal Roof can last a lifetime. In fact, there are known cases of metal roofs outlasting the home itself. When you compare metal roofing that last 50 years or more with asphalt shingles that last maybe 10-20 years, you can see why the cost is higher for metal. But you recover that investment in the long run by not having to replace your roof every 15 years.
A Metal Roof Adds Value to Your Home. Most people don’t stay in a home for 50 years. If you think you might sell your home and move within the next decade or two, a metal roof will be a big selling point. The new buyer will know that the roof won’t need to be replaced for a long time.
Metal Roofing is Energy-Efficient. This is a big factor here in Florida, where the sun is relentless much of the year. It is common for temperatures in your attic to go well above 100 degrees. When your home has a metal roof, it will actually reflect a high percentage of that radiant energy coming from the sun. The roof will also have its own built-in venting system. All of this means that your attic doesn’t get as hot, so your home’s AC system doesn’t have to work as hard to keep your living area at a comfortable temperature. That translates to lower electricity costs.
When we are discussing metal roofing South Florida as an option with a customer, the question of noise almost always comes up. There is a common notion that a roof made of metal will create a cacophony of noise inside the house during a rain. This is a misconception. There are several levels of materials between the top side of the roof and the inside of the house – radiant barriers, dense foam board, the wood roof deck itself, and then your attic insulation. When it’s raining, you will not hear the raindrops hitting the roof.
