BENEFITS & ADVANTAGES OF METAL ROOFING
There are a number of reasons to choose metal roofing over other materials, like asphalt shingles, tiles, or concrete. While metal roofing might be the best choice for some home or building owners, we understand that it’s not always the best material for every consumer. The best way to know if metal roofing is a good match for you is to consider some of the most common reasons people decide to buy them.
Metal roofing is specifically engineered to last decades longer than any other roofing material. Actually, many consumers ultimately decide to purchase a metal roof because it’ll be the last roof that they ever have to put on their home or business. Depending upon the type of metal material used, most metal roofs last 50+ years without any extreme signs of degradation or corrosion.
When compared to different materials like wood, concrete, plastic, or glass, metal easily stands out as the strongest and most durable. If properly installed, metal roofing is designed to withstand:
- Strong winds
- Rain and moisture
- UV exposure
- Mold, algae, mildew, etc.
- Rodents and other animals
Not to mention, metal roof materials are often Class A fire-rated and noncombustible, meaning the fire resistance is the highest grade possible. This proven durability against common roofing threats is one of the fundamental reasons metal roofing is so popular.
The level of upkeep needed to maintain a metal roof is generally minimal, especially if the roof was correctly installed. General upkeep would include looking for leaves, branches, and other debris that could get stuck on the roof and in the gutters around once a year and after strong storms. In the event that dirt or other stains do not come off with rain, there are methods to clean your metal roof. Also, a concealed fastener roof will generally have less upkeep than an exposed fastener metal roof.
There are a number of reasons that metal roofing is environmentally friendly. First, most metal is highly recyclable, meaning that any tear-off metal, old panels, or even manufactured excess scraps can be recycled and used in future products. These metal materials can either come as pre-consumer or post-consumer recycled content:
- Pre-consumer recycled materials – Scrap content during the manufacturing stage that has been recycled for future use.
- Post-consumer recycled materials – Excess materials that have already been in the possession of a consumer at one point in time and have been recycled for reuse.
Second, there are several metal roofing materials, including aluminum, that are made of already-recycled metal. In fact, nearly 95% of all aluminum roofing is made up of previously recycled materials.
LOWER COST IN THE LONG TERM
It’s true: Metal roofs are more expensive upfront as a one-time cost versus the cost of asphalt shingles or tiles. However, as mentioned before, metal lasts decades (60 years in some cases), while asphalt shingles last anywhere from 15 to 20 years. One metal roof can easily outlast at least three asphalt shingle roofs.
Even if the shingle roof lasted 20 years, you would need to pay for a shingle roof about three times and a metal roof about one time in a 60-year span, making the metal roof a more economical choice.
