Residential metal roofing is one of the fastest growing segments of home improvement – more than quadrupling its market share over the past decade. The benefits offered by today’s metal roofs allow homeowners to upgrade their homes with products of lasting value. While other roofs quickly diminish in value as they age, metal roofs provide the following lasting benefits:
Reduce Energy Costs: More and more, homeowners are seeking out energy-saving building materials for their renovations and new homes, products that not only secure and improve structures but also provide long-term cost-cutting on energy bills while promoting environmental and economic sustainability in the greater community. Many residential metal roofs now utilize reflective pigment technology, which results in overall home energy efficiency, and lower utility bills. In addition, all metal roofs are made from 30-60% recycled material.
Ventilation: A Classic metal roof can also help you achieve good attic ventilation. Ventilation is a key to even greater energy efficiency and it also helps guards against winter ice damming in cold climates.
Longevity: Longevity is one of the top reasons consumers report choosing metal roofing for their homes. When configured and installed properly by Metal Roofing Alliance Member Contractors, metal roofing can last as long as fifty years or more, requiring very little maintenance and looking beautiful all the while. But it isn't just the dependability that people love about long-living metal roofing; it's the low life cycle cost. Few homeowners realize until after the fact but metal roofing can actually cost as little or less than asphalt roofing. Since asphalt roofing needs to be replaced 2 - 4 times as often as metal roofing, you really need to multiply not only the initial cost of asphalt roofing materials but also the cost of asphalt roof repairs and re-installation man hours to compare to the typical "once-a-lifetime" metal roofing installation. While your neighbors may re-roof their home many times, a high-quality metal roof will likely be the last roof you'll ever need. Resistant to cracking, shrinking and eroding, metal roofing systems can also withstand extreme weather conditions including heavy snow loads, hail storms and wildfires.
Valuable Investment: While the initial cost for a premium metal roof is higher than most other roofing materials, you'll save money in the long run. A metal roof can last a lifetime, whereas materials like asphalt require reproofing every 10 to 20 years. A metal roof can also increase the resale value of your home.
Beautiful Variety: No matter what kind of roofing style, color or finish you have now, there's a metal roofing style to match. Today's metal roofing looks just like common roofing material such as asphalt shingle, clay tile, cedar shake or slate. However, metal lasts at least 2 to 3 times longer.
Recycling: Metal roofs typically have a minimum of 25% recycled content. This level of recycled content allows metal roofing to be routinely included on listing for "green" and recycled content products. It is also 100% recyclable when ultimately removed as part of building renovation or demolition. Other roofing materials are routinely removed and disposed of by the ton in a landfill, but metal roofing can be recycled by its entirety. Metals are exceptional building materials that can credibly claim both recycled content and recyclability by recognized definitions.
Long Warranties: Most metal roofing comes with a true 30 to 50 year manufacturer warranty, plus a workmanship warranty from the installer.
