Why Metal?

Why choose metal roofing? There are many advantages.

Consider the following:

Cost: metal roofs are initially more costly than some roofing products but due to their exceptionally long span they may actually be cheaper when compared on a cost-per-year basis.

Installation: metal roofs are relatively easy to install due to their light weight and portability.

Maintenance: maintaining a metal roof is not a major concern as leaks are almost never an issue if the roof is installed correctly. Even if a leak does develop it is normally relatively easy to repair.

Durability: well-maintained metal roofs can last up to 70 years, or longer. They have a high strength-to-weight ratio, are resistant to fire, and they can withstand earthquakes and heavy winds.

Design: there are many types of metals that can be used for roofing and an extremely large number of shapes, sizes, and colors are available.

Environment friendly: several of the non-ferrous roofing metals such as copper, aluminum, and stainless steel are recyclable so they will not have to be taken to a landfill when replaced with a new roof.

Overall, there is more than just the initial cost to consider when installing a roof. If a long-lasting, quality roof is desired, then a metal roof may be the best choice.
