A metal roof is a roofing system created from metal pieces or tiles distinguished by its high endurance, impermeability, and durability.
Because of their durability, most metal roofs are cheaper than asphalt shingles during their lifespan.
Metal roofs can last up to 100 years and, are usually made with Zinc, copper, and steel alloys. The material used in the manufacturing process comes in 12 to 36-inch panels or multiple-shingle sections. They have a high percentage of recycled elements and are 100% recyclable.
Metal roofs can reflect the heat and on a larger scale, their use decreases the heat island effect. This type of roofing offers a 40% energy cost reduction in the summer and up to a 15% discount on the energy costs in the wintertime.
If you have a well-done installation and keep the maintenance updated, your roof should last as long as the house. It offers increased wind resistance, insect resistance, endures wind storms, snow, and rainwater. It can also withstand fire and rot.
It has lightweight and quick and easy to install it creates little stress on the load-bearing roof support structures and can be installed on top of an existing roof.
