How many times will a homeowner have a new roof installed on their home? Maybe two times if they live in the same home for a long time, since asphalt roofs last approximately 25 years. Ask any homeowner and they’ll say those years passed by in a blink of an eye until they were financing another roof, with each roof getting more expensive than the last one. Unlike years ago, when just about every home had asphalt shingles installed, today, many people are choosing metal roofing materials.
About Metal Roofs
Metal roofs are growing in popularity since they last longer than asphalt roofs. If a home or business owner wants the look of a wooden shake roof, the metal can be manufactured to look exactly like wooden shake shingles. Metal roofs also come in a vast array of gorgeous colors that can be repainted later on if the owner chooses. No termites are going to chew into a metal roof and cause it to collapse. A fire won’t burn a metal roof the way it will burn through shingles. Metal roofs also save on energy usage which saves on utility bills.
Safety in Storms
One reason getting a metal roof installed is the wise thing to do, is that they can take the abuse of the sun, rain, wind, ice and snow storms. Homeowner’s insurance may cost less since most insurance companies won’t foresee large insurance claims on the way from a home with a metal roof. They also have a life-time warranty attached to them that can be transferred to a new buyer if the home is sold. This also means a home may sell much faster when it’s value has been increased due to a metal roof.
Choosing a Roofing Company
There are companies in the area that offer free estimates, great customer service, and highly qualified roofing experts to install the metal roofs. They aim to please and will work to satisfy each customer that hires them to install their new metal roof. Roofing companies also have websites with a chat feature so that potential customers can ask questions while they’re viewing it. They also have an easy to fill out short form for those needing an estimate.
