Metal roofing has been around for centuries due to its strength and durability. However, its main drawback has always been its cost. So why choose a metal roof if it’s expensive? Overall, metal roofing is a great investment and over the years you may recoup your upfront costs. State Farm Insurance Company lists several key benefits of metal roofing:
First, no other roofing material has the longevity of metal roofs with a lifespan of 40-70 years. Buy a metal roof and it’ll probably be the last roof you ever purchase. This also translates into adding value to your home as a great selling point. Next, metal roofing is strong and durable, withstanding hurricane winds without worrying about shingles blowing off.
Unfortunately, sometimes people mistakenly believe that metal roofs attract lightening because metal conducts electricity. However, lightning seeks a path to the ground which the roof doesn’t provide. Also, metal roofing will not spark or ignite during a fire. Additionally, metal roofs reflect solar heat thus reducing cooling costs by 10-25%. Finally, metal roofing panels are sustainable containing 25-95% recycled content and are 100% recyclable at the end of their term.
Generally, as with any other home improvement project, there are several cost factors that affect the price of a metal roof:
Chiefly, the most common metal roofs are copper, aluminum, and steel. While copper and aluminum are more expensive, steel is cheaper and a more popular choice. Coated with zinc for galvanized steel or zinc and aluminum for galvalume steel, both offer superior protection.
If your roof has many skylights, angles or dormers, roofing installers must cut the metal panels to fit these features. Additionally, steep sloped roofs are harder to work on. Both of these factors drive up labor costs.
Providing quality roofs for over 45 years, Xterior has the experience to install your metal roof. We use high-quality fasteners with larger screw-head size to prevent tearing of the metal during strong winds. Plus, we use using silicone gaskets instead of rubber to help prevent leaks. Finally, we seal the top and bottom of your metal roofing with breathable foam closure strips. This prevents moisture, wind, and wildlife/insects from entering the space between the metal panel and your roof.
