About Metal Roofs
Metal Roofing Longevity
When comparing shingle roofs to modern metal roofing technologies, if you choose a metal roof it can have an estimated life expectancy of 40-65 years meaning that the saying that it will be “the last roof you will ever buy” is literally right! Because of its strong seams and metal hardness nothing can break these bad boys. Typical materials in these type of roofs are galvanized steel, copper, zinc, or aluminum. If you are looking to make a one off investment into your home we recommend a metal roof, not only will it increase your property value and add curb appeal but it will most likely be the last roof you will ever need to worry about.
Lightweight & Fire Safe
Metal roofs, besides being made of lightweight mostly recycled aluminum or metal material, put less strain on your home and are up to 25% lighter than its shingle counterparts and can withstand hurricane winds of up to 140mph without being damaged. Another important benefit is its fire retardant nature which can be the difference between a major loss in case of fire and they will not spark or ignite when hit by lightning or in the event of a natural wildfire thus making them an ideal choice for you and your homes safety.

Metal roofs are among the lowest maintenance roofing material there is, aside from their durability these roofs ensure that 98% of rain or snow runs off ensuring that there will be no problematic areas assuming your gutter system is in check. Their slick surfaces make for an easy way for water and debris to escape via gutters into your downspouts and off of your roof as things can get stuck in shingle roofing due to its rough consistency.

Roof damage is one of the most expensive cost homeowners face after an extreme windstorm hits their area. High winds are also typically accompanied by heavy rains, which expose homes with compromised roofs to massive amounts of water damage. Metal roofing can withstand gusts of wind of up to 140 mph. And because they consist of large interlocking panels, metal roofing resist uplift caused by high winds further reducing the risk of water intrusion.
Most metal roofing carries a Class A fire-resistant rating, the highest possible.. A common cause of residential fires is due to wind-blown embers, which can travel up to a mile and become lodged in between shingles. Unlike wood shake or petroleum-based asphalt roofs, metal is inherently non-combustible and offers a high degree of fire protection for your entire home.
Hail can break, split and cause tear-off damage to traditional roofing materials, resulting in big repair or replacement costs. Metal roofs, on the other hand, are naturally very tough and highly resistant to hail damage. Many insurance companies even offer discounts to homeowners who install an impact-resistant metal roof.
