If your home’s current roof is reaching the end of its life, you may be wondering about whether to keep the same type of roof or go with something else. One look around, and you’ll see that metal roofing is growing in popularity, and for good reason. It has plenty of solid benefits that may make it appealing to you as a roof replacement option.
First of all, metal roofing is lightweight. If you have considered concrete tile roofing but had to vacate that idea because your roofing structure cannot handle the weight, you’ll find metal roofing to be a great option. It is even lightweight enough to be added on top of an existing roof, which can save you the labor involved with tear-off. If you are adding onto your home, metal roofing will enable you to save money on the roof support system.
Additionally, metal roofing goes up very quickly, making it the ideal choice if your current roof is leaking and you want protection fast. A qualified and experienced metal roofing installation contractor can install metal roofing faster than other types of roofing.
Although metal roofing is more costly than a shingle roof, it will last twice as long, making your actual cost roughly the same. Plus, you can use metal roofing even on a gently pitched roof, whereas other materials could fail in a shorter period of time. You’ll also find that rain and snow slide right off. Metal roofing is also fire resistant.
