Metal roofing has multiple benefits. From energy savings to safety, metal roof panels provide homeowners perks across the board. To help you grasp all of the advantages, Xterior LLC put together a top-10 list!
As most NC residents know, coastal storms sometimes come our way. Even if your home is inland, wind gusts can rip your roof right off of your house. Fortunately, metal panels withstand 155+ wind speeds when properly installed.
Speaking of weather, our customers often wonder if metal roofs dent easily. Fortuitously, they are extremely durable and resist denting. Rarely is normal-sized hail large enough to cause issues. If you are concerned about denting, a textured roof is a viable option. Customers also worry if metal roofs rust. Most all roofs are treated with a protective coating to combat oxidation.
Likewise, options for metal roof panels are abundant and versatile. Essentially, this means that you can choose a material that fits the weather in your area best. For instance, steel is a common option in the mountains and zones prone to hail. On the other hand, aluminum is popular in Wilmington and NC coastal areas. Since these panels resist salt corrosion better compared to other metals, they survive salt spray well.
Better yet, steel and aluminum aren’t your only varieties. Copper and zinc are options as well. Each material has its own benefits. For example, copper can last upwards of 200 years. Similarly, zinc actually has a natural ability to “heal” scratches with its patina and stays strong for 100 years.
Furthermore, choices don’t end at aluminum, copper, steel and zinc. Numerous style options are available as well, including the look of slate, clay, cedar shake and even asphalt shingles.
Aluminum, copper, zinc and steel roofs are all energy-efficient in warmer weather. Since all of these materials reflect sunlight, they are often up to 50% more energy-efficient than traditional shingle roofs.
Often, we don’t think about cleaning our roof. However, they do indeed collect dirt, dust and other debris. A simple rinse with the hose is often all a metal roof needs to keep it clean!
As referenced above, metal roofs last for many years. In fact, they are often the last roof you’ll ever need to buy. From 50-200 years, their lifespan will protect your home for a very long time. This benefit is a major selling point, should you decide to sell in the future. Additionally, metal roofs increase the value of your home.
A huge bonus to the environment, metal roofs are recyclable. As a matter of fact, most of the materials are 100% recyclable so mother nature wins too!
