Metal roofing is more common than people may think or notice. It is increasingly becoming more popular as people start to notice the durability and long-lasting benefits of metal roofing compared to alternative options. This blog will outline the benefits of metal roofing for those in the market for a new roof who are considering metal.
1. Lightweight – Metal roofing is a very lightweight material making it easier for installers to handle and transport up on the roof. Although, it does require experienced installers the lightweight material makes the installation process smoother. It also does not put a lot of unnecessary stress on the structure of the home which preserves the frame.
2. Lifetime – One of the biggest benefits of metal roofing is its long lifetime. The average lifetime of metal roofing can last three times as long as an asphalt shingle roof. New Windows for America offers stone coated steel which will hold-up to the extreme climate and will look like a traditional shingled roof. We also offer a 50-year transferable warranty against cracking, warping, splitting, or breaking if any of these do occur.
3. Cost – Although metal roofing is more expensive as a one-time cost, it will save you money in the long-run. Because it is so much longer lasting you will not have to replace the roof. If a shingle roof last 20 years, you would need to pay for a shingle roof three times and a metal roof only once in a 60-year span. This makes the metal roof a more economical choice. It also increases the property value of the home by 1 to 6 percent.
4. Fire Resistant – New Windows for America offers a Class A Fire Rating. This means it is fire resistant and much less likely to catch fire than shingle roofing if a hot ash or ember falls on the roof.
5. Weather Performance – When compared to other types of roofing material, metal roofing easily stands out as the strongest and most durable. Metal roofing is designed to withstand hail penetration, 120 mph winds, driving rain, snow, extreme cold, and high heat.
6. Environmental-friendly – Metal roofing is recyclable so any left-over pieces can be recycled for future use. In addition, having a metal roof may reduce your annual heating and cooling costs.
If you are in the market for a new roof, we highly recommend metal roofing. At New Windows for America, we offer innovative new metal roofing Minneapolis homeowners can rely on: stone coated steel to hold-up to the extreme climate and the look of a traditional shingled new roof to upgrade exterior curb appeal.
