Metal roofing systems are fast becoming the roof of choice for homeowners. Widely considered a direct upgrade from asphalt-shingle roofing, they surpass their predecessor in almost every aspect. Advances in technology have made metal relatively affordable and widely available.
At 3G Roofing, we offer professional metal roofing installation. In this post, you’ll learn the benefits of upgrading to a metal roof.
Advances in technology have given metal roofs an extended color palette, which means more colors and textures to choose from. It’s why this roofing system is the preferred choice for most contemporary and ultra-modern homes. Its innate durability also means that colors and textures will not fade until late in their life span.
Metal roofing systems are known for their sheer durability, surpassing asphalt shingles and rivaling tile and slate for resilience to the elements. They also last a long time, with an average service life of 40 to 70 years.
What sets metal roofs apart, though, is that they require little to no maintenance. They are better at resisting wind-driven rain, and, unlike asphalt shingles, will not warp or curl when exposed to moisture damage.
Metal roofs are also more energy-efficient because they naturally reflect radiant solar heat and resist UV light exposure better than other roofing materials. In fact, a properly installed metal roof can help lower your cooling costs during summer. Also, despite their relatively low insulation value, most metal roofs have a dead-air space between the actual roof and the roof deck which increases the system’s energy efficiency.
