It’s always good to do your research before buying something. Sometimes that can be time-consuming, though. It’s nice when the information is already put together. Metal roofs offer a host of benefits to accommodate many needs. Here’s a basic overview of the perks when installing metal roofing:
Durable with long life-span:
This is the greatest allure of metal roofs; when installed properly they can outlive the building they’re put on. They repel water, stand strong against high winds, and easily shed off built-up snow. These roofs are naturally resistant to fire, insects, mildew, and rot. Generally, they will come with long warranties.
They’re definitely not the lightest roof material, but compared to tile and concrete tile they’re not heavy at all. Generally, metal roofs will come in at about 50-100 pounds per square.
Nobody likes to wait; with metal roofs you won’t have to for long. If there’s an emergency and you need a new roof fast, metal roofs are the perfect choice.
Metal roofing material is one of the few types that receives a Class A fire rating, the highest possible. The only time a metal roof won’t have this rating is when it’s installed on top of another type of roof, but even still it will increase the previous rating.
These encompass the basic benefits to installing a metal roof. Here at DK Haney Roofing, we have expert-level roofers trained and ready for metal roof installation and a host of other services. For more information, please give us a call at (866) 379-4846.
