Maintaining your home is expensive. It seems throughout the house that everything, from windows to siding, has an expiration date. One of the more costly upgrades to your home can be the roof. While absolutely necessary, replacing a roof can add a big dent to your savings. So why not use a material that will last a lifetime? Metal roofs are quickly taking the front stage as the premier choice for new roofs. Strong and durable, metal roofs truly are the roof the last a lifetime. Below, let's take a closer looks at the advantages a metal roof brings.
● Long Lasting
A traditional asphalt roof may last 20 years. Compare this with the longevity of a metal roof. Homeowners that have installed a new metal roof on their home report the home lasting for at least 50 years without showing the signs of wear and tear. In the time you have one metal roof, you would have already replaced an asphalt roof two times, and are probably thinking about replacing it a third time. Metal roofs are meant to last and protect your home.
● Protects the Home
A roof is intended to cover and protect all that you hold dear in your home, including your family and belongings. A metal roof is strong and durable, able to withstand the toughest weather conditions. Additionally, a metal roof is much lighter than a traditional asphalt roof. This means that the weight bearing down on your home's structure is significantly reduced. Less weight and wear on your home's beams, supports, and structure means that your home's integral pieces will last longer too.
● Traditional Look
Many people think of a metal roof as something you would see on a barn or silo. In the past, this may have been true, but now metal roofs come in any variety of looks and shapes. Metal roofs exist that completely mimic the look of shingles or shakes. If you have a more traditional, older home, metal roofs have even been designed to imitate the look of a slate roof. The options are endless for this long-lasting roofing material.
If you are tired of asphalt roofs that just don't hold up it may be time to consider installing a metal roof as your next choice. Strong, long lasting, and beautiful, metal roofs make an excellent choice to keep your home protected for a lifetime. The experts at C&T Siding are able to help.
