Why Consider Metal Roofing for Your Home?
Metal Roofs Have Much Lower Total Cost of Ownership than Asphalt.
Metal Roofs are Fire-Resistant and Environmentally Friendly
It’s not uncommon for asphalt shingles to fly off during strong winds or to be easily damaged by hail. Asphalt can also be prone to mildew or mold from moisture buildup.
In contrast, metal roofing can hold up to many conditions and doesn’t pose a risk of harmful moisture buildup. It’s also fire-resistant, and safe from lightning strikes when properly installed. So, while with asphalt you might get a few dents from a major hail storm, with metal you’ll get more durability against extreme elements.
Metal roofs are 100% recyclable. Metal roofing manufacturers use anywhere from 25% to 95% recycled materials in the production of their products. Aside from maximizing the use of recycled materials in production, metal roofs can often be resealed to extend their life-cycle instead of needing to be entirely replaced. Moreover, it’s unlikely that they’ll end up in a landfill when they’re no longer in use.
Metal Roofs Boost Your Home Value
Metal roofs are the best choice for homeowners who want to optimize their property’s use of energy. They offer up to 40% reduction in energy costs in the summer and a 15% reduction in energy costs in the winter when constructed with a four-inch strapping system and in a reflective light color, such as white, light green, or blue. These roofs can run 50 to 60 degrees cooler than dark asphalt shingles, reflecting harsh sunlight back instead of trapping it so that it enters your home.
The upfront costs of installing metal roofing become even easier to justify when you consider its effect on your home value. According to Home Guides, homeowners can expect to see an average of 85.9% of the total cost of a metal roof. This means that even if you’re not planning to stay in your home for the next 40 to 70 years, you can still reap the cost-effective benefits of metal roofing.
You can get a discount on your homeowners’ insurance when you install a metal roof on your home. Since they’re more durable and less prone to damage from the weather, some homeowners’ insurance companies offer policy discounts of up to 35% for those with metal roofing. It’s worth checking if your policy covers this type of promotion and what the discount would be. However, if you want a metal roof and your homeowners’ insurance doesn’t offer a lowered rate, switch your policy to a provider that does.
Should You Remove Existing Roof?
Depending on your local building codes, you can save money on the installation of a new metal roof by having it installed directly over existing asphalt shingles. (Please talk to one of our consultants before considering this option. Underlayment and decking are very important considerations in your metal roof. ) If installing over your existing roof makes sense, the process cuts down the cost of labor since there’s no time spent removing the shingles, and is compatible with the installation of a strapping system. You only need to make sure to have your current roof properly inspected before putting metal roofing over it so that you’re not trapping in problems such as moisture buildups or rodents.
