Different Types of Metal Roofs
Metal roofing is extremely durable, and need not look like shiny metal. In fact, Metal roofing can have the same look and feel as asphalt shingles and other roofing materials.
One of the real advantages of metal roofs is that they are essentially worry-free. Unlike some other roofing materials, metal roofing is typically made of steel and will not fade. It is available in a wide range of colours and styles and can even be manufactured to look like clay tile roofing or cedar roofing. This combination of style, versatility and durability can significantly boost a home’s resale value.
Why Metal Roofing?
Metal roofing is extremely resistant to wind, hail, snow and ice buildup and is virtually impenetrable by water, insects, fire or mold.
Like some types of green roofing, metal roofs also provide a natural radiant barrier that keeps hot sunlight out, keeping your home cooler during hot summers and thus reducing energy costs.
Because of its longevity and fade-resistant attributes, roofing manufacturers often refer to it as “the last roof you will ever need.”
Advantages of Metal Roofing
The slight added expense of metal roofing over other types of roofing is made up for by its longevity and low maintenance. Some metal roofing brands do qualify for Energy Star ratings.
Metal roofs can also be categorized as “green roofs” due to their ability to be recycled and reused.
