Metal roofing installation not just for commercial use
As recently as 10 years ago, most people in the Charlotte and Concord NC area considered metal roofing installation for commercial uses only. Like other homeowners across the country, they thought the only reasonable and affordable option available for residential roofing was the ever-popular asphalt shingle. Asphalt shingles are easily available and inexpensive, but unlike metal roofing materials, they need to be replaced after years of exposure to the elements. If your home is one you plan to keep for the long term, perhaps metal roofing installation is the way to go.
Install a metal roof to match the style of your home
Modern metal roofs are designed with sleek lines that lend an impeccable look to the private residences they adorn, and are available in a variety of styles, colors, profiles, and patterns. Your metal roofing installation could look like cedar shakes, shingles, slate, or like clay tiles. Whatever metal roof style you choose to complement your home – be it modern, traditional, country cottage, contemporary, traditional or classical – metal roofing will look better, last much longer than many other types of roofing, and save you money in the long run.
The extreme durability of metal roofing
If you are wondering whether to install a metal roof on your home, here are some facts about the incredible durability of a properly installed metal roof. High quality metal roofing typically offers guarantees for 50 or more years. Little or no maintenance is necessary for metal roofs. Metal roofing enjoys the highest possible fireproof ratings in the construction business. Metal roofs can resist damage in winds as high as 120 miles per hour, and stand up equally well to snow and hail. In regions such as Charlotte NC that are susceptible to hurricanes, metal roofing is an excellent long-term choice.
Metal roofing installation benefits add up
Compared to the cost of an asphalt shingle roof, you can often pay more to install a metal roof. Metal roofing does cost more to produce than asphalt shingles, after all. However, when installing a new metal roof over a shingled surface, you can generally place the new roof right on top of the old one. Any time your expert Charlotte roofers can simply cover over an old roof, they significantly reduce installation time because there is no need to tear off and dispose of the debris created in a tear-off of the old roofing material. Do the math, and compare installation costs as they relate to the life of a metal roof against the life of asphalt shingles. The benefits of a metal roof really add up!
