Spring is right around the corner, and for homeowners who know they need to replace their roofs this upcoming season, now is the best time to choose your new roofing material from your local roofing services. While it may seem like an easy choice to replace your old roof with a new one exactly like it, it may be worth making the switch to metal roofing.
Metal roofing has become an increasingly popular roofing choice (and for good reason). Here are a few key ways swapping your old roof for a new metal roof could be the ideal solution for you.
1. They’re Long-Lasting
Your asphalt roof can definitely withstand the wear and tear of Mother Nature with proper roof cleaning and roof repair. But, according to State Farm Insurance statistics, metal roofs have a longevity of 40 to 70 years. So, even though they’re a bigger investment up front, they pay off later down the road when you don’t need to replace your roof for the rest of your lifetime (or at least until you sell your home).
2. They’re Energy Efficient
While it may seem like metal would absorb more heat in the summer and more cold in the winter, metal roofing is actually incredibly energy efficient and can help you lower your energy bills. Metal roofs reflect heat up and away from your property, which helps to regulate the indoor temperature during the summer months. During the winter months, metal roofs reduce heat loss with an effective barrier between the metal material and your home.
3. They’re Highly Durable
One of the key reasons why metal roofing systems have such high longevity is because they’re incredibly durable. They’re capable of withstanding wind gusts of 140 miles per hour, and they’re more resistant to impact from flying debris such as tree branches or stones. That means you can feel confident that your home is properly protected from storms throughout the year.
Additionally, in the event of a fire, metal roofs won’t burn like other types of roofing materials. They won’t ignite or spark, which makes them not only more fire-resistant but also safer for you and the environment.
