If you are building a new home or are in need of a new roof, choosing to install a durable metal roof is a sustainable choice for your home with many benefits.
Steel roofs offer the maximum level of protection from the elements and dangers like fires—no matter where you live from Boston to Houston.
Steel roofs are becoming a popular option for many homeowners. There are so many styles and colors available that a steel roof can be easily matched with any architectural style.
You can even add to your home’s market value when you add a steel roof.
Talk to a Boston or Houston home builder about having a sustainable metal roof installed in your home.
You will enjoy the many benefits that steel roofing has to offer including durability, energy efficiency, and the ultimate defense against the elements.
1. Less Maintenance
A steel roof can protect your home with very little maintenance for up to 50 years. The materials are non-degradable and should hold up to everything that nature can throw at it for many decades.
It’s still a good idea to have an expert come out to do an inspection on your steel roof every few years to make sure that the plates haven’t shifted and that it is in good shape.
2. Wind Resistance
A steel roof is installed by using a series of overlapping layers of strengthened steel. This leaves you with an unparalleled flat surface that is resistant to peeling or lifting due to high winds.
Much of the damage that homeowners deal with when they have a traditional shingle roof is due to damage from high winds.
3. Energy Efficient
Steel roofs offer excellent savings to homeowners. The steel itself can help you to insulate your home so effectively that you will see savings on your energy costs for heating and cooling your home.
4. Fire Resistance
In certain parts of the country, residents are at a higher risk of wildfires. With the summers getting hotter every year, the occurrence of wildfires is increasing.
A steel roof can protect your home from burning embers and ash and keep your roof from becoming engulfed in flames.
Up to 90% of all the materials that make up your steel roof are sustainable.
Recycled materials are used in the manufacturing process making it a favorite choice of homeowners that consider it important to reduce their carbon footprints.
At the end of the life of your steel roof, the materials can once again be used as recycled goods.
6. Stylish & Adaptable
There are so many styles and colors of steel roofs available that you can easily find just the right match for your home.
The sleek styling goes well with just about any kind of architecture and you can choose from a variety of looks from panels to steel that looks like slate or tile.
If you are looking for the ultimate in-home protection and style you need to talk to your local roofing contractor today.
A steel roof can last for over 50 years while looking great and providing a low maintenance alternative for homeowners.
