Benefits of Metal Roofing Material
There are absolutely some big benefits when you go with some materials versus others.
The metal roof alone has many great and very valuable attributes. Here are some of those attributes just to give you an idea.
Handsome and Clean: They really draw the eye, making your home or business stand out among the rest in a great way. This could really add some wonderful value to your property.
Lighter: They are so much lighter than a tile roof, which can really make it so much easier on your house over time. Metal roofs are similar to the weight of shingles (in the 50-150 lbs. range for every 100 square feet); whereas, a tile roof weighs around 1000 lbs. for every 100 square feet.) That is, very clearly, a large difference in what weighs on your structure.
Durable: Metal roofs last. They will be viable for a very long time and are quite resistant to the damage that other materials could be in greater danger of.
Cooler: Metal roofs can cool off much faster than roofs with other materials and you know as well as we do that, here in the Rio Grande Valley, we’re all trying to get cooler any way that we can! Having our houses and businesses cool off faster would help us feel good, of course, but should also save us some money as our air conditioners won’t have to work quite as hard as usual. To aid in keeping your bill low, there is also the option of getting spray foam insulation.
