Design & Fabrication
What are the Benefits of Metal Roofing?
Metal roofing technology has come a long way in recent years. The design and fabrication is now much sturdier. Three benefits include appearance, durability, and safety, all for an excellent value.
Metal roofs used to be uniform and only available in chrome colored sheets that shined like a beacon in the sun. Now, there are many color options and material that doesn’t even look like metal. From light gray and brown to red, yellow, blue, and many other colors, it will look like an asphalt tile roof from a distance. The same profile can be created with more durable material than asphalt roofing, and there are more colors to choose from.
Metal Roofs Are Durable
U.S. Shingle’s metal roofs are durable and last for many years, but are also lightweight and easier to work with. Squirrels and other animals are ales likely to damage this type of surface, and hail, sun, and wind cannot damage this roof easily. A typical metal roof will last 30 to 50 years.
Keeps Your Home Safe
Metal roofs, unlike pine or cedar shingles, do not easily catch fire. If you life in an area with wildfire issues, this roofing type is your best bet. You may also get a lower home owners’ insurance rate with metal roofing over other types.
Versatility and Protection
Metal roofing can be repainted, giving your home an updated look for little work and a low cost. Metal roofs offer a lifetime of beauty and protection, especially with the clear finish applied at installation.
