Why get a metal roof? – A 5 min read

Metal roofing was once only commonplace in industrial or rural applications. Today, metal roofing is used more and more extensively in residential applications.  The reason for this is the lifespan, more availability of colors and styles, cost-effectiveness, and adding to the curb appeal of your home or business.

Style

This isn’t your grandpa’s barn roof! Metal roofing today comes in a variety of colors and finishes.  If you don’t mind the traditional barn/industrial look, standing seam roofing is still available and can work with certain home styles! If you love the look of asphalt roofing, shake or slate, pressed metal panels that convincingly imitate that look are also available!

Adding Curb Appeal

Depending on the style of your home or business, we will recommend different styles that will complement the architecture.  A modern structure can take the hard lines of standing seam, where an English Tudor style home would look best with a more decorative style panel that works with the period of your home.

Lifespan

A metal roof will most likely last your entire lifetime. Properly installed metal roofing is watertight, sheds snow and resists the rays of the sun. There simply isn’t any material that can blow off, curl, or degrade. Imagine not having to worry about when your roof is going to need to be replaced!

Cost Effectiveness

It goes without saying if a metal roof lasts you 50+ years, that will be at least two asphalt roof installations to one metal roof.  Metal roofing is a little bit more of an investment but is made up for in the long term and with peace of mind.
