Are you in the market for a new roof? If you’re considering purchasing a new roof, Eustis Roofing can help you find the most viable roofing options for your home. And one of the most viable roofing options out there is metal roofing.
What Is Metal Roofing?
Metal roofing is made from tiles or metal pieces that are composed of impermeable and long-lasting materials. They are commonly composed of zinc, copper and steel alloys.
Traditionally, metal roofs can last a long time. How long is a long time for a metal roof? Depending on the situation, they can last up to a number of decades—some roofs lasting up to 100 years!
Here are just a few reasons metal roofs could be right for you. They are:
- Energy Efficient
Metal is an important alternative to shingle roofs for both residential applications as well as commercial applications. Metal roofs cost more than a fiberglass shingle roof, but they will certainly outlast a shingle roof by a significant number of years (possibly, decades). In some cases, your metal roof will outlast traditional fiberglass shingle roofs by up to three or four times longer.
Metal roofing is cost-effective. It’s that simple. Since the roofing is low in maintenance, you will save money for not having to constantly repair the roof. Since it’s longlasting, you have many years of reliable roofing that you can rest assured will protect you from the blistering summer heat, and the summer rains.
In addition to being long-lasting, these roofs are basically maintenance-free. Their need for upkeep is negligible at best; at worst, inexpensive.
Since metal roofs reflect the sun, they, therefore, can bring serious savings to your energy expenses, decreasing the cost you normally would spend on cooling your house down.
Metal roofs are extraordinarily robust and can outlive the house it’s keeping cool and dry. Since it is lightweight, it can be used on older houses without concern for injuring the structures. Some traditional roofing may weigh too much and could seriously harm the substructure of the home. Not roofs made of metal.
