Add Value to Your Home with Metal Roofing
While metal roofing can have a higher upfront cost than three-tab shingles, the roof will last longer, be less susceptible to damage and provide a high-end aesthetic. Over the lifetime of the roof, metal will actually cost less than shingles per year AND can fetch additional funds when you resell the home.
Use our Roofing Calculator to get an approximate estimate of how much a new metal roof can cost for your home. The roofing calculator also calculates the price of shingles and tile roofing. Use it to compare the difference.
Benefits of Metal Roofing
There are numerous advantages provided by metal roofing. Whether you’re considering metal roofing for your home or your business, there are almost no instances in which metal wouldn’t be a great choice.
Some of the multitude of metal roofing benefits include:
The recovered value of metal roofing is roughly 90% when you sell your home, a higher percentage than shingle roofs.
While many metal roofs on commercial buildings can have an industrial look, the same is not necessarily true for residential metal roofing. Homeowners can choose from a wide variety of colors, profiles and textures to best integrate with the home’s overall style.
Metal roofing is extremely strong and stands up remarkably against wind uplift force, impact and deterioration – a perfect choice for Florida homes.
Metal roofs are highly reflective, meaning they reflect the sun’s UV rays away from the roof, helping to reduce the stress on your home’s HVAC system and keeping your interior cooler in the hot summer months. Metal roofing’s energy efficiency could actually help lower your energy bills.
Metal is one of the few roofing materials that are 100% non-combustible for its entire lifespan. This can make the determination of whether or not your home ignites in the event of a stray ember or even a direct lightning strike.
A well-maintained, quality metal roof can last for up to 50 years (or more!), whilst the expected lifespan of three-tab shingles is closer to 20 years.
Metal is one of the most lightweight of all the available roofing materials. While shingles can weigh 150-240 pounds per square, metal roofing typically weighs just 40-90 pounds per square, helpfully reducing the amount of stress on your home’s structure once installed.
Metal roofing is not just 100% recyclable at the end of its useful life, but it’s also typically made with a minimum 25% recycled material. This makes metal roofing a genuinely “green” product that is not likely to end up in a landfill.
Metal roofing truly stands up to Florida weather, from the high summer temperatures, humidity and abundant sunshine to hail, wind and water. Not only are metal roofs virtually leak-proof, but they can also withstand hurricane-force winds.
