When it comes to your roofing, you want something that will stand the test of time. You want something that will endure under extreme weather conditions. One such roofing material is metal roofing. Although it costs more, could it be worth the investment? Our team at C & T Siding have discovered a number of reasons why homeowners should seriously consider installing a metal roof.
Metal Roofs Can Last for Years
A roof is a significant investment. Not only do roofs cost thousands of dollars but getting one installed isn’t really convenient. No one wants to continually endure the banging noises above their heads more than once. Although traditional shingle roofs can last 25 years or longer, research has proven that metal roofs can last two to three times longer than traditional roofs. When you install a metal roof, you may never need another roof.
Metal Roofs Very Rarely Leak
When it comes to roof leaks, there is a lot more to the problem than what meets the eye. No one wants a roof leak. In fact, within a few days of water leaking into your home, mold can begin to form in your home. If the leak is somewhere out of sight, you could inadvertently allow mold to grow in your home for months. Mold is a danger to both you and your family. Fortunately, metal roofs are practically impervious to roof leaks; the odds of you getting a leak is slim to none.
In addition to avoiding mold, a metal roof also helps you avoid roof repairs. When you get a roof installed by a professional such as our team at C & T Siding, you don’t have to worry about your roof leaking.
Metal Roofs Are Fire Resistant
In so many house fires across the United States, the roof contributes significantly to the flames. Traditional roofing material melts during house fires which cause the flames from the fire to intensify. In many cases, thousands of homes go up in flames because the roof wasn’t constructed of fire-resistant materials. Fortunately, you increase the chances your home doesn’t become consumed in a house fire by installing metal roofing. Metal isn’t combustible. With a metal roof, you have a better chance to save your home if you experience a house fire.
