Metal roofing provides many benefits over conventional roofing materials. It is durable, long lasting, saves money over the long term and provides a comfortable environment for your family because many metal roofs come in “cool colors” which have the ability to lower your cooling costs during the warmer months.
Metal roofing will cost slightly more than conventional asphalt roofing but is up to half the price of tile, shake, or slate. It is lightweight and installation is quick and simple.
Metal roofs can last longer than a conventional roof. A metal roof will last 40 years or more while a conventional asphalt roof must be replaced between 15 to 30 years depending upon the quality and style of shingle. It has also been demonstrated that the home’s value increases with metal roofing. In Colorado, a metal roof can even lower your homeowner’s insurance premiums.
Metal roofs come in a wide variety of designs so this type of roofing material can harmonize with almost any style of house. They are also exceptionally durable and can withstand any type of weather. Metal roofing never deteriorates so it is very likely that you will not need to replace your roof for many years. Little or no maintenance is required as it resists moss and mildew and will not be damaged by insects or termites.
