Metal roofs are comprised of long sheets of metal that create a roofing structure to protect your home from almost any weather condition. Although this type of roof isn’t as common today as other materials, it’s one of the strongest and most reliable forms of roofing. Metal roof installation services with Grandmark Service Company are fast and reliable with guaranteed quality.
If you’re looking for reasons to invest in a metal roof for your home, we’re happy to give you a few. We understand that this is an important decision a homeowner may have to make, and we want to make sure we provide the resources to help you be sure of your decision. The following are advantages of metal roofing:
Compared to the 20-30 year lifespan of the other forms of roofing materials, metal roofing has the potential to have a lifespan anywhere from 40-50 years. This is thanks to its ability to seal out water more efficiently, survive high wind speeds and shed any snow or other weather element that tends to stick to roofs.
Ranging from 1-3 pounds per square foot, metal roofing is one of the lightest roofing materials out there. It all depends on the thickness and profile of the material, but it tends to weigh much less than the other types of roofing materials. The heaviest tile material is clay or concrete tile, and those can weigh up to 10 pounds per square foot, requiring extra roof support underneath. Thanks to this material’s lightweight nature, you can often downsize on extra roof support.
Metal roofing is also referred to as “standing-seam.” The sizes of the metal standing-seam sheets your home requires are customizable and are typically 3 feet wide and range from 6-16 feet long. Your new metal roofing can even go over existing shingles, depending on if your roof is flat and no rotting is happening.
Metal materials used for roofing are non-combustible, meaning they’re fire resistant. Most of the metal materials come with a Class A fire rating which ensures that embers or flying sparks will not catch your roof on fire. The chance of catching fire depends on the materials that your metal roofing is applied over.
Metal roofing materials also offer a heat-reflecting characteristic which is especially beneficial during the midday heat index. This not only reflects heat but also saves you money on your energy bill! Thanks to the lack of heat making its way into your home, you don’t have to crank up the AC to stay comfortable.
This type of material also offers an advantage when it comes to weather extremes. Although Fresno doesn’t experience snow as often as other places, metal roofing can shed snow like no other. It can also stand up to weather extremes such as tornadoes and hurricanes. Your roof is the first line of defense when it comes to factors affecting your home from the outside world. Metal roofing is also a great investment to make when considering climate impact.
