METAL ROOF BENEFITS:
PROVEN PERFORMANCE OF 50+ YEARS
STYLES TO MATCH HOME OR NEIGHBOURHOOD
LOW WEIGHT FOR STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY
CONTROL THE COST OF MAINTAINING YOUR HOME
Because metal roofs do not degrade the way that most roofing materials do, a properly installed and specified quality metal roof will end your periodic “budget drains” for roof repairs or maintenance.
As most metal roofs feature panels that interlock or interconnect in some way. This provides superior wind resistance compared to other roofing materials that just overlap or depend upon gravity to hold things in place.
As structures age, low weight roofs help to guard against structural movement and damage, particularly in areas prone to seismic activity. Metal roofs are the lowest weight in residential. This low weight also often allows a metal roof to be installed over existing shingles, eliminating landfill disposal.
Through reflective coatings and integrated thermal breaks, metal roofs often reduce summer cooling costs by up to 20% or even more.
Metal roofs provide lasting resistance to airborne sparks and embers, protecting from exterior fires.
Many roofing materials rely on failure-prone sealants for difficult areas such as flashings, dead valleys, and transitions. With metal roofing, though, those areas can be flashed with matching metal – far more long-lasting and reliable than sealants and adhesives.
Traditional roofing materials tend to have frequent colour and style changes, making it difficult to match older products if the home is added onto or modified in some way. Most metal roofing manufacturers are very consistent with their designs and colours, helping homeowners know that they will be able to add to their roofs at later dates.
Metal roofing adds lasting distinction and beauty to a home. Other roofing materials begin a deterioration process from the first moment of installation that affects their looks over time. Metal roofing, on the other hand, can keep a very fresh “new roof” look long into the future.
Depending on the product you choose, a quality metal roof should have recycled content from 35% – 95%. Additionally, at the end of its useful life, a metal roof should be 100% recyclable rather than require landfill disposal like other roofs.
