Metal roofing is a roofing material that is made of long lasting, durable steel or aluminum. Using metal roofing has become increasingly popular recently because of the durability and long lifespan over other roofing materials. In warm climates and areas that are prone to serious storms like Florida, metal roofs are preferred by many homeowners.
Rather than using asphalt or mission style roofing materials, roofing companies will install sheets of steel or aluminum to a house. Rather than a dark, non-reflective look like other roofing materials, metal roofs have a shiny and glossy look. They make every house sparkle, which is an eye-catching and beautiful feature on almost every home. There is a reason metal roofs have been becoming increasingly popular, and it is because of their many great benefits. However, there are some things to consider before getting one installed on your home, which you will see below.
Metal roofing is not any more expensive than most other roofing materials, but getting a new roof is expensive, nonetheless. It is a great idea to first reach out to us to get a quote to make sure getting a new roof will work with your budget. The great thing about metal roofing is that they last much longer than other roofing materials, so your dollar will stretch much further. However, we always recommend making sure the cost of a new roof is affordable before committing to getting one.
Metal roofing must be installed perfectly by your roofing company. It is much more difficult to replace a metal roofing panel than it is other roofing materials, so there is very little room for error. Just like with other metals, steel and aluminum roofs expand and contract slightly when exposed to different temperatures. When installed properly, this should not be an issue, so you must hire a contractor who is experienced with installing metal roofs. Here at Chappelle Roofing, we have over years of experience and are experts when it comes to installing metal roofs. When you work with us, you can rest assured we will install your metal roof perfectly.
The truth is, there are many benefits of getting a metal roof. Below, you will see just a few of these benefits. If you would like to see what other benefits metal roofing offers in Florida, please contact us, and we would be happy to explain them to you.
Metal roofs have a much longer lifespan than other roofing materials. Considering metal roofs are made of durable steel or aluminum, you won’t have to replace your roof for around 40 years. This is up to four times longer than other roofing materials, which makes this a great benefit of metal roofs. Metal roofs do not start to break down from water, wind, or heat as other roofing materials do, so they last much longer.
As mentioned above, metal roofs are made of highly durable steel or aluminum. This is great for the harsh weather Florida can have during hurricane season. You will likely experience much less severe damage with a metal roof than you would an asphalt or mission style roof. The durability of metal roofs is one of the greatest benefits of using this material.
As you know, metal is a reflective surface, which means metal roofs reflect the sun. This means they also reflect the heat from the sun away from the home, which can help to lower your energy bill. Metal roofs are known to help lower the energy use of air conditioning, because the heat from the sun does not get absorbed into the house as it does with an asphalt roof. Metal roofing in Florida is great for this reason, as it can get very hot here, which forces us to crank up the air conditioning.
