Metal roofing in Vancouver is quickly increasing in popularity. Homeowners are attracted to its durability, longevity, and ability to protect their homes from even the harshest weather. However, metal roofing is more expensive than other roofing options but comes with good returns.
Xtreme Roofing in Vancouver shares why metal roofing is worth the investment and a smart choice for your home:
Metal roofing lasts a lifetime
If you purchase a metal roof, it might be the last roof you ever buy. Depending on the roofing product, your metal roof can last 50 years or more. They don’t deteriorate over time like asphalt shingles or cedar shakes. They can stand up to wind, rain, snow, and heat for decades. Though they are more expensive, your metal roof could very well last for as long as you own your home. Consider the cost of multiple asphalt roof replacements over your lifetime, and you’ll see that a metal roof is worth the investment.
Metal roofing stands up to all weather
Your roof’s primary function is to protect your home from the weather. With the amount of rainfall we get on the coast and Lower Mainland, you want to make sure it’s running off the roof and not leaking into the house. When installed by qualified roofers in Vancouver, your metal roof will protect your home from all weather. A metal roof will protect your home from wind, rain, sleet, snow and even help reflect the sun’s heat away from the house during the hot summer months.
Metal roofing is maintenance-free
Because of the humidity in this region, moss and algae growth can be a problem for home exteriors. For asphalt and wood roofing and some types of siding, it’s challenging to prevent algae, lichen, mildew, and moss growth. It’s also a pain to clean it off. With metal roofing, you won’t have to worry about that. Metal roofing is resistant to moss, mildew, algae and lichen, and even pests and fire. Read more reasons why you should get a metal roof.
Metal roofing is eco-friendly
Metal roofing in Vancouver rarely needs to be replaced, but it can be 100% recyclable if it does. On the other hand, asphalt shingles usually end up in the landfill and can take hundreds of years to break down.
Metal roofing can also help improve your home’s energy efficiency because the roofing will not absorb solar radiation. By reflecting the heat and energy from the sun, your metal roof will help keep the house cool and reduce your need for air conditioning. By lowering cooling costs and strain on your air conditioner, you’ll see actual savings on your utility and maintenance bills.
