Storms can make a mess of many roofing systems. Post-storm repairs pile up the expenses, year after year. There are many quality materials that can endure the storm trauma, but few do it as well as metal. Here are three key benefits you could enjoy with a metal roofing system.
Benefit #1: Powerful Protection
Metal roofing is most popular for its enduring strength against the weather. Aluminum is especially popular for its ability to easily resist corrosion. No matter which metal you choose, you can expect few to no repair visits throughout the year, even after a bad hail storm.
Benefit #2: Low Maintenance Costs
Consider all the times you’ve had to call out the repairman when your shingles fly off or your roof starts to leak. With the durability of metal, you can skip the recurring maintenance calls and reduce your service visits to once every year or two. D.I.Y. upkeep simply consists of cleaning off your rooftop and gutter twice a year, so you won’t have to worry about supply costs either. You may want to apply a new coating layer every ten years, but that’s a walk in the park compared to other roofing systems.
Benefit #3: Longer Life Cycles
Metal roofing systems have a wide range of life cycles. While standing seam rooftops often last beyond 40 years, many copper rooftops endure for over a century! That’s a long time to enjoy better storm and fire protection. With high value per square foot, metal offers a great way to improve the value of your home.
