Philadelphia's #1 Metal Roofing Company
Are you considering renovating the roof of your home? Look no further than a metal roof. Metal roofs are durable, customizable, and affordable and well loved by homeowners. Known for their capability to outlive asphalt and slate by at least two decades, metal roofs are impervious to dramatic weather changes, mold and mildew, discoloration, and other weaknesses that commonly warrant a roof repair or replacement from homeowners.
Introduction to Metal Roofing
Commonly made of materials such as copper, aluminum, steel, and galvalume, metal roofs can be shaped to emulate the look of tiles, shakes, shingles, and slates. Additionally, the malleable characteristics of metal also enables it to be adjusted to accommodate low sloping roofs and other tricky roofing projects. Metal roofs do not chip, bend, or lose their cosmetic appeal over time. When you purchase a metal roof, you are guaranteed to enjoy at least 50 years of faithful service — with minimal upkeep on your part.
Benefits of Metal Roofing
No roofing material can measure up to metal’s superior performance and efficiency. An excellent roofing solution for environmentally conscious homeowners, Metal roofs can be installed on virtually any roof size and slopes. We’ve listed a few essential benefits of a metal roof:
- Naturally fire-resistant
- Can withstand winds traveling up to 140 mph
- High solar reflectance and emissivity
- Can effectively reflect up to 90% of the solar heat right back to the atmosphere
Depending on where you live, metal roofs have the potential to reduce peak cooling demands by 10% to 15%, providing homeowners a generous energy break during the dog days of summer.
Metal vs. Asphalt
As a type of roof covering that comes with an asphalt-saturated base, asphalt shingles are coated by materials such as slate, schist, quartz, vitrified brick, stone, or ceramic granules to improve their durability. While comparatively cheaper than their metal counterpart, asphalt shingles can only last for approximately two decades, and even less if you fail to give them constant care and attention.
Metal roofs, on the other hand, can outlive asphalt shingles two to three times longer without you paying a single dime. Insusceptible to inclement weathers and aggressive thermal expansion and contraction, metal roofs will stay true to you and your loved ones for many years to come.
Metal vs. Slate
You may think that slate roofs are a better roofing candidate than metal because they are made of stone. Metal roofs have actually been found to be stronger for their malleable property. They do not break as easily as slate roofs and are also much lighter for your building structure. In addition to costing less than a slate roof, a metal roof is 100% recyclable and consumes less energy in its manufacturing process. Homeowners love metal roofs for their longevity, customization flexibility, and lasting charisma. And if you do the math, the energy efficiency of metal roofs as well as their durability will save you much more money over time.
