A Valuable Investment
While the initial investment for a metal roof is higher than for most other roofing types, you will save in the long term. Metal roofs last a lifetime, compared to roofs made of more traditional materials such as asphalt - which need redoing every 10 to 20 years. A metal roof also often increases the resale value of your house. In Texas a metal roof may even lower your homeowner's insurance 35%.
The average life-span of most non-metal roofing material is 17 years. For example, asphalt requires re-roofing every 10-20 years. But, metal roofing systems provide much more durability - lasting up to 60 years. Chances are good that the first metal roof you install on your home will also be the last.
More Design Variety
For every non-metal roofing style, finish, or color there is a metal roof to match. Today's metal roofing can perfectly imitate common roofing material such as clay tile, asphalt shingle, slate, or cedar shake. But of course, metal will last longer by 200-300%.
More Energy Efficient
Roofing made of metal reflects light whether it's a light or dark colors scheme. This heat effectively means reduced cooling loads in the summer and insulation for houses during the winter. Lowering your energy bill is one of the major benefits to a metal roof.
The majority of metal roofing includes a full 30 to 50 year manufacturer warranty as well as a workmanship warranty from the installer. Give Berlin Roofing a call today to learn more about our available metal roofing warranties.
