Metal roofs have started to gain widespread support and popularity as more home and barn owners want to have a better solution to their roofing problems.
Metal Roofs vs. Shingle Roofs
Metal roofs are fast replacing shingle roofs for a number of reasons. Metal roofing is an energy efficient, light weight and green alternative to asphalt shingle roofs. Most asphalt shingle roofs tend to fall apart after a decade or so and will need to be replaced. As global warming becomes more prevalent, hotter climates and longer summers can clearly punish your roofing. Metal roofs are more resistant to heat and extreme temperatures as compared to asphalt shingle roofs. Extreme heat and rapid changes in temperature and climate can damage shingle roofs extensively; so much so that you may end up requiring a complete re-shingling of your roof.
Since we all know that roof repairs are not only costly but also time consuming, it is very important that we choose a very durable roofing material that will last a long time and require little or no repair over the years. This is why metal roofs have become Charlotte and Fort Mill’s popular roofing material choice and metal roof contractor Advanced Roofing and Exteriors have been getting a lot of business from home and barn owners who want metal barn roofs and metal home roofs.
Why a metal roof is cost-efficient
Ask Advanced Roofing and Exteriors, your Charlotte roofing contractor, and he will tell you that the cost of installing a metal roof can be anywhere from three to four times more expensive than that of your standard asphalt shingles roof. In fact, a metal roof can cost as much as a cedar shake or tile roof but not as much as if you had to install a slate roof. Metal roofs last up to well beyond 30 years – sometimes up to 50 years. Advanced Roofing and Exteriors, your Charlotte roofing contractor will ensure that it is installed properly and in accordance with the specification guidelines set by the manufacturer.
Asphalt shingles are made using paper or fiberglass and then treated with oil. Once installed, they immediately start to break down and can last only up to a maximum of 10 years. Advanced Roofing and Exteriors will confirm that a metal roof will last more than double that time period and will never decompose; not to mention the fact that it can withstand most intense weather conditions.
Metal Roofs as a practical choice for the discerning home and barn owner
Because of their durability and practicality, metal roofs are the obvious choice for any smart, practical home and barn owner. Contact Advanced Roofing and Exteriors today to get a quotation and have a metal barn roof over your barn or a metal roof installed on your home today.
