There are many benefits to installing a metal roofing, whether you are a residential home owner or a commercial business owner. The highly trained professionals at Alpine Roofing Construction can show you the many advantages of these roofing systems!
1. Energy Efficient
A metal roof is a perfect choice to protect any building from harsh conditions like the summer heat we often see in Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana. Metal roofing systems reflect more of the sun’s heat than conventional shingles. Compared to a dark gray asphalt shingle roof, homeowners reported saving approximately 23% in annual cooling costs with their metal roof!
2. Durable and Leak Resistant
These systems can take a beating and still stand up to even the harshest environmental conditions, including heavy thunderstorms, wind and hail. The Metal Roofing Alliance states that metal roofs are longer lasting than other roofing materials and can boost the resale value of a home.When configured and installed properly by our qualified roofers, metal roofing can last 50 years or more, requiring very little maintenance. Remodeling Magazine reports that homes renovated with standing-seam metal roofing recoup an average 85.9% of the roofing cost.
3. Fire Resistant
Enjoy confidence and peace of mind when it comes to the safety of your property with a metal roof. These roofs have the best possible rating (Class A) for fire resistance in the roofing industry.
4. Extensive Selection
No matter what kind of roofing style, color or finish you have now, there’s a style to match. Today’s metal roofing looks just like common roofing material such as asphalt shingle, clay tile, cedar shake or slate. However, metal lasts two to three times longer. Residential metal roofing is often steel or aluminum, but copper, zinc and titanium are also used in specialized applications. Various finishes, coatings and paints give a metal roof different looks and energy-saving qualities. Choose from a wide selection of our residential and commercial metal shingles, slates, shakes, tiles, vertical panels and more!
5. Lower Insurance Premiums
If you live in an area that experiences extreme conditions (hail, high wind or grass fire) metal roofing can be very beneficial. There is impact-resistant UL Standard 2218 tested metal roofing (classes 1 through 4) and fire-resistant Class A, B and C metal roofing. While important for safety and security alone, metal roofing products may also earn you discounts on property insurance. In some areas of the United States, homeowners have reported discounts of 30% or more. Contact your insurance agency for information on metal roof discounts
