What are the benefits of a metal roof?
There are many benefits to installing metal roofing for your home or commercial building, particularly in Louisiana. It's a durable and affordable option, which is why more and more people are opting for it on their building projects. Here's why you should consider metal the next time you need to replace your roof.
Metal is a very durable material, and some metal roofs have been known to last as long as 70 years. When compared with other materials, you can get almost double the lifespan at a similar cost. Metal also can withstand very strong gusts of wind - something that's always important to consider in Louisiana! Some metals are also resistant to impact, and most are designed to prevent corrosion and other weather-related damage. They also can't ignite if they are struck by lightning or are caught in a wildfire.
Metal roofing materials are typically very lightweight, which makes them easier to install than tile or other heavy roofing materials. This means your entire roof installation will get done more quickly, and you won't pay as much in service fees. If you need to install a roof in an emergency, such as after a storm, a metal roof will go up more quickly.
Many metal roofs are made primarily with recyclable materials, so you know that you are helping the planet as well as installing a strong roof. Metal roofs are also completely recyclable at the end of their lifespan, so they are a very prudent option for the future.
If you are looking to save money on your energy bills, a metal roof could be a good option for you. Metal roofs actually reflect heat, preventing it from getting into your space. This means you'll need to spend far less money overall on your cooling bills.
Metal roofing is becoming increasingly popular and accessible, and if you are in the market for a new roof, this is a great choice. Although it is more expensive than asphalt, the cost relative to the overall lifespan of the roof is excellent.
