There are many pros when it comes to installing a metal roof over virtually any other type of roofing system! More and more homeowners are choosing to install a metal roof. Here’s why:
- Higher energy efficiency. Because of their increased energy efficiency levels, metal roofing can help significantly reduce cooling costs and energy bills.
- Safety. In case of a fire, metal roofs are proven to be safer, since they don’t easily ignite in flames.
- Durability. Metal roofing can simply withstand any weather conditions, no matter how severe.
- Longer lifespan. Most metal roofs usually last anywhere between 40-70 years.
When compared with other common types of roofing, metal roofs have a long lifespan. When properly installed, metal roofs are usually expected to last anywhere between 40-70 years – they may even last longer, depending on how well they’ve been maintained.
In addition, this may come as a bit of a surprise to most homeowners, but metal roofing isn’t all that noisy, even when compared with other types of roofing – such as asphalt, tile, slate, and cedar shake. Even during inclement weather, such as hail, metal roofing may be quieter than most. It’s true! Solid sheathing is installed under metal roofing, which acts as an effective noise-blocker.
When it comes to the cons of having a metal roof, those include: the initial cost (which can be quite steep), and the fact that metal roofing is prone to denting.
