Whether you’re building a new home or need to replace your old roof, there are many benefits to installing a metal roof. Metal roofs are attractive and offer longevity, durability, require little to no maintenance and are better for the environment. True North Exteriors in Edmonton shares 5 reasons why you should install a metal roof:
1. Metal roofs are energy efficient.
A metal roof can will be hand crafted using the most energy efficient metals on the market. It will be coated with energy saving finishes. This coating has special reflective properties that will reflect away the sun’s infrared rays, leaving your attic space and living space much cooler in the summer. In the winter, the reflected heat from the sun will help your roof shed off more snow and ice build up. This will improve your home’s overall efficiency and reduce the amount you spend on energy each month.
2. Metal roofs can stand up to the elements.
Each metal roof is designed to protect your home from the ever-changing elements of Canada’s climate, using locking panels, leak free flashing and quality ventilation systems. Your metal roof can also be backed by warranties for material and labour.
3. Metal roofs are durable and long-lasting.
The best advantage of a metal roof is its longevity. A metal roof can literally last a lifetime. Where traditional asphalt shingles have to be replace every 10-15 years, metal roofing can be virtually indestructible and will last the life of the building they’re installed on. Imagine never having to replace your roof again!
4. Metal roofing increases property value.
Not only are they the most durable roofing system on the market, they are also very attractive, easy to maintain and a major draw for potential home buyers. A metal roof will increase your home’s value. According to Remodeling Magazine you can expect to add more than 62.9 percent of the cost of your new roof to your home’s value instantly. Though they are more expensive to install initially, depending on the manufacturer metal roofs have non-prorated warranties and will out last the lifespan of several asphalt roofs. That means they are much more cost effective over time and a smart investment.
5. Metal roofing is better for the environment.
Metal roofs are also more environmentally friendly than traditional asphalt shingles and other roofing materials. They are designed to go over an existing layer of shingle roofing materials. This eliminates the need of removing the roof and throwing those materials into a landfill. Plus, the metal roofing material itself can be made from recycled materials. When your metal roof expires, in a hundred years or so, the entire roof itself can also be recycled.
