Does Your Home Need A New Roof? 3 Benefits Of Choosing Metal Roofing

Posted on: 17 October 2017

If it is time to install a new roof on your home, you have many choices to make on what kind of roofing material you want to use. One type you may not have considered is metal roofing. The roofing panels are made of a durable and strong steel. The panels have a metallic coating to help make the panels resistant to corrosion from the sun, debris, etc. A pretreatment layer is applied to the steel panels to make the panels adhere to the roof much easier. Once the roofing is installed, a polyester primer is heated and then placed onto the surface to provide even more protection.  Below are three benefits of choosing this type of roofing for your home.

Many Colors Available

When you purchase metal roofing, you will find there are a variety of colors to choose from, including browns and yellows. This allows you to match the color perfectly with the color of your home, the color of your roof's fascia, and the color of the gutters and downspouts. If you want something very unique, you could mix and match the panel colors for your roof.

You should consider choosing a light color, however, especially if you live in a hot climate. This is because lighter colors draw in less heat when compared to dark colors. This will help keep the temperature inside your home cooler no matter how high the temperature is outside.

Strong and Durable

Even though metal roofing is lightweight, the steel used is strong and durable. This means your roof will hold up well to high winds, termites, rain, thunderstorms, and more. Because the roof is in long panels, you will not have to worry about individual shingles flying off when it is very windy outside.

Low Maintenance

The color is bonded to the metal, which makes it long lasting. You will not have to worry about painting the roof. The only thing you need to concern yourself with is to ensure leaves and other debris stay off it. Unless you have a lot of trees near you, this should not be a problem you have often. If you do have debris, you can climb on the roof and remove it. They also make long roof brushes that you can use so you do not have to climb up onto the roof.
