8 Things to Know About Metal Roofing
Metal roofing is rapidly growing in popularity throughout the US because of its durability, its low requirements for maintenance, and its relatively low cost. It's the perfect roofing material for any home or commercial property in Plymouth or the surrounding areas, and the roofing contractors at Paul J. Cazeault & Sons can make sure that it's perfectly installed.
Many home and business owners have reservations about metal roofing, and it's perfectly understandable to have some questions. These eight facts are some of the best reasons to have metal roofing installed:
1. Metal Roofing is Totally Recyclable
New metal roofs are typically made from recycled materials, but few people know that they're also 100% recyclable, and they can be recycled infinitely without ever losing quality. They'll never end up in a landfill, and they'll never be wasted.
2. Metal Roofs Require Very Little Maintenance
Copper, stainless steel, and zinc roofs only ever need to be repaired if there are problems with their initial installation or design. These types of roofs can last for up to a century or more. The only maintenance a metal roof ever needs is for the factory coating, which may need to be recoated as it wears off.
3. They Can Last a Lifetime
A metal roof should be considered a lifetime purchase for your Plymouth home. So while you may spend more money upfront, you'll actually save a tremendous amount of money in the long-run on maintenance, repairs, and replacements.
4. Metal Roofing is the Most Durable Roofing Material There Is
Metal roofs will not rot, crack, or leak, and they can never be infested with termites, rodents, or any other pests. They can also withstand being struck by any type of debris without sustaining any damages. They can't catch fire, they shed ice and snow, and that can withstand winds of up to 150mph without sustaining damages.
5. No—Metal Roofing Does Not Increase Your Home's Chance of Getting Struck By Lightning
In fact, if your Plymouth home is struck by lightning, your metal roofing will help o dissipate the charge.
6. Metal Roofs Won't Make Rain Louder
In case this is a concern of yours, your metal roofing will not be loud when it's raining outside. It’s installed with a layer of sheet beneath it, so it sounds exactly like any other roofing materials.
7. Insurance Companies Often Give You a Significant Discount for Installing Qualified Metal Roofs
8. Your Metal Roof Can Come in Any Color or Style at All!
You'll be able to find a design that is perfect for you and your Plymouth home. The two main styles of metal roofing are vertical panels and interlocking shingles. If you choose interlocking shingles, they can be designed in the style of cedar shake, clay tile, asphalt shingles, or any other roofing materials.
