On many occasions, your roof is your first line of defense when it comes to protecting your home. Roofs that aren’t protected will give, allowing water, snow, and critters to enter your home, which can cause more problems for you. To ensure your home is protected for years, you should consider installing a metal roof.
Metal Roofs Last for Years Compared to Asphalt
Experts within the construction industry estimate that metal roofs last between 40 and 50 years. Compared to other roofs, like asphalt roofing, you essentially get two roofs from your metal roof installation. Typically, asphalt roofing only lasts about 20 years and wood shake roofs last about 30 years. By investing in a metal roof, you get more bang for your buck.
Roofs Made of Metal Are Fire Resistance
In 2013, there were over 1.2 million homes that experienced a fire. Roofing material can make house fires burn quicker, which increases the chances that your home will burn completely. When you install metal roofing, you don’t have to worry about this. Metal is fire resistant, which means if you experience a fire, your home will burn slower. A slower burning home means you and your family can get to safety and it’s likely that your home won’t burn to the ground.
Metal Roofs Reflect Heat, Saving You Money
Unlike other types of roofing products, metal roofing reflects heat. By reflecting heat, your roof helps you keep your home cooler. In fact, you can maximize your roof’s ability to reflect energy by choosing a color that is capable of reflecting heat better. Our team at C and T Siding can help you determine the best option for your home based on your energy conservation needs.
Completely Avoid Water Issues by Installing a Metal Roof
Once you have a metal roof installed, it’s likely you won’t have to worry about leaks. Due to the nature of a metal roof, water and snow literally slide off the roof. With asphalt roofs, snow can remain on your roof bearing down on your home, which can create problems that manifest years later.
