Metal roofs are available in a variety of colors and textures and can be manufactured to look like a wide variety of other roofing materials: shake, slate, tile, and cedar, for instance. Metal roofing is also quite a durability material and stands up well against hail, high winds, snow, ice, and even fire. Metal roofs typically include an underlayment material to protect the roof from ice dams and moisture.
Special tools and techniques are necessary to properly install metal roofs so that they are properly attached and sealed to the home. An asphalt shingle roof, which is the most popular type of roof in the US, will have a life expectancy of between 20 and 25 years; with a metal roof, that amount of time is doubled. If you can afford the initial costs and plan to live in your home for a long time, it is particularly beneficial if you live in an area prone to intense storms and wintery weather.
Pros and Cons of Metal Roofing:
● Metal resists fire and the heat doesn’t burn the roof to cinders. Its surface doesn’t expand and retract, which causes wood shakes to split. Metal roofs also don’t burn into toxic ash, spewing out smoke and soot that poisons the air. Fire resistance is one of the top benefits of metal roofs.
● Metal lasts a long time. A properly installed quality metal roof should last from 40 to 50 years, sealing out water, surviving high winds, and easily shedding snow. The fact that metal is resistant to fire, mildew, insects, and rot pays off big in longevity.
● Metal Roofing Is Eco-Friendly. As asphalt is manufactured using petroleum products, the EPA estimates that nearly 20 billion pounds of old asphalt shingles are dumped in US landfills every year. Asphalt roofs require replacement every 15 to 20 years, so nearly 20 billion pounds are discarded in landfills every year.
A metal roof averages $14 per square foot for materials and installation, making it a prior option but the benefits are endless. Keep in mind that the cost for installation may vary depending on your home’s architecture and how difficult the heating system is to reach. There are many affordable options available.
