4 Reasons you Should Consider Metal Roofing

Published by Andrew Schmidt

Metals roofs are becoming more and more common. They keep noise levels down and have better temperature control than other roofing materials. Here are a few big reasons why metal roofing is taking off.

  • Durable: Metal roofs are long lasting, fireproof and designed to withstand high winds, something important here in the Windy City! They also eliminate the chance of leaks and ongoing repairs.
  • Energy-Efficient & Environmentally Friendly: Metal roofs reflect the sun, blocking heat from entering your attic. Homeowners who have chosen a metal roof have a 20-40% lower energy cost. Many metal roofing manufacturers are also using recyclable materials which benefits the environment.
  • Appearance: Metal roofs can be made to look like traditional shingles or tiles. They come in various colors and styles, which gives consumers many options while making decisions for a roofing project.
  • Cost: The initial cost of a metal roof is higher than a traditional shingle roof. However, the long-term benefits include low maintenance and lower energy costs, making a metal roof something to consider when beginning a roof renovation.
