Advantages of Metal Roofing
The draw to metal roofing installation is based on the product's durability, fire resistance, versatility, longevity, energy savings, and value. There are many components to metal roofs. The MRA reports that metal roofs:
- Typically last 2-3 times longer than their asphalt counterparts
- Can boost resale value by 6%
- Can decrease insurance premiums by up to 35% (in some states)
- Reflect the sun's rays, decreasing AC cost
- Insulates against the cold, decreasing heating costs
Metal Vs Asphalt Roofs
Metal roofs are becoming increasingly popular among homeowners due to their many benefits and quality. One of the main advantages of metal roofs is that they are extremely durable and suitable for all climate types. They can withstand heavy winds and hail, and they are not susceptible to fire or moisture damage.
Asphalt roof material, on the other hand, is much more vulnerable to these elements. In addition, metal roofs are energy efficient, reflecting heat and keeping homes cool in summer. They also last much longer than asphalt roofs, with a lifespan of 50 years or more. For these reasons, metal roofs offer a significant advantage over asphalt roofs.
