  • Opening Intro -

    Building your own home or renovating the roof of your existing home comes with plenty of questions.

-------------------------------------

One of the most important questions you want to answer is whether or not you want a metal roof, as opposed to other materials such as asphalt, wood, and tile.

Newer and higher quality houses are being made with metal roofs, as these roofs have been discovered to beat out all other conventional roofing materials. Metal roofs can be built in a DIY fashion and have several benefits to protect your home and its occupants.

The benefits of a metal roof

One of the most notable benefits of a metal roof is its longevity. When properly installed, a metal roof effectively seals a house and protects it from debris, heavy wind, and snow. Metal roofs are also resistant to fires, mildew, and pests. These roofs usually come with a 20-50 year warranty for your peace of mind.

Most varieties of metal roofs weigh far less than other material, running at 50 to 100 pounds per square. Other materials such as tile can run between 750 and 900 pounds per square. Depending on your current roof, many metal roofing supplies can be applied over your existing roof.

Metal roofs also reflect the heat from the sun throughout the day. This lowers the mid-day temperature raise that could cost you hundreds extra in air conditioning.

Simple and quick installation process

As opposed to tiling and more conventional methods of roofing, metal roofs offer easy assembly. Most metal roofing panels come in 12 to 36 inch wide sections. If you do choose to hire a contractor, any skilled contractor can easily put up a metal roof with little struggle required. This saves you on labor costs as well as the added danger of exposing your home to the elements for extended periods of time.

Why should you choose a metal roof?

If the list of benefits wasn’t enough to sway your decision, consider that this is a process that can be achieved without the payments to a contractor. Metal roofs are easy to set up and build with proper supplies.

Once they are properly installed, you and your family can rest easy knowing that you have a roof over your head that is light weight while also being highly resistant to the outside world when compared to other roofing materials.
