Why choose a metal roof?

Metal roofing has the longest life of any roof material.  That is one reason metal is used on commercial roofs.  You will spend less money buying a quality metal roof than paying for replacements. If correctly installed by your Charlotte roof contractor, a metal roof will last as long as the house you are living in.  That is why you may see old barns with their original metal barn roof.

Functional benefits to metal roofing

If a reputable roof contractor like Advanced Roofing and Exteriors has installed your metal roof, it will keep out water and handle snow and high winds better than other types of roofs.  It can keep out insects, and it will not rot or mildew.  Low maintenance is one reason metal roofs are so popular in commercial roofs. Another benefit of a metal roof is that it is fire resistant.

Why you should consider a metal roof for your home

A metal roof is easy to install for an experienced roof contractor like Advanced Roofing and Exteriors.  Because it comes in large sections of metal, it is much quicker to install than other roof types.  This will save you money and time with the labor.  This can be important once the original roof has been removed to protect your home from bad weather. People are often concerned about a metal roof making your home hotter, but the opposite is actually the case.  A metal roof reflects the sun’s rays to keep your home cooler.

Save money with a metal roof

Metal roofing is lightweight compared to other roof materials, allowing you to install it over your old roof.  Since you will not have the added expense of tearing off the old roofing materials, you will save money on your roof installation.

Because a metal roof has such a long life, most companies have warranties that last up to fifty years.  You will most likely never need to replace your roof; if there are any issues, you will have a good warranty to cover you.
