Metal Roofing vs. Asphalt Roofing
Metal roofing outperforms asphalt by longevity, durability, maintenance, energy efficiency, and increased home value. Asphalt roofs stain and discolor in as little as 1 year. The visual appeal of metal roofs tends to last decades Metal Roofs come with a lifetime product warranty and 35 year appearance warranty. For years to come your metal roof will continue to look great.
Instead of absorbing the heat energy produced by the sun, which could transfer to the house below, metal roofs reflect the ultraviolet radiation from the sun - especially if the color is light, and the roof is protected by a special finish. This means less energy will be necessary to keep the house cool, which means less money spent on power bills.
Green Metal Roofing
From production to the end of its lifecycle, a metal roof is a smart decision for the environment. Metal roofing is green roofing. Unlike asphalt shingles, metal contains neither toxins nor pollutants. This encourages a healthy local water cycle, as rainwater is free to run smoothly down metal shingles without carrying with it any chemicals or filthy debris from traditional shingles. Metal roofing is recyclable.
Historic Metal Roofing
Metal Roofing is a tradition dating back to the 19th century. While today's modern metal roofs utilize more advanced techniques and construction, metal is responsible for the structural integrity found in many antique homes that made use of the method more than 100 years ago.
For older and more historic houses, metal roofs are a great addition. Any historic home can maintain it's beautiful, aged look while benefitting from solid construction that will sustain it's life for many more years to come.
