Even though the initial cost of premium metal roofing may be higher than most other types of roofing materials, you will save money over the life of your home. Metal roofing can last almost as long as your home. This is compared to roofing materials such as asphalt which require replacement or repair every ten to 20 years. Adding metal roofing can also increase the overall value of your home. Metal roofing is also extremely popular with rehabbers. Homeowners who renovate their homes and add metal roofing may recoup up to 95% of their investment, especially in areas around Charlotte and Concord NC. They may also experience from one to six percent increase in their home’s resale value.
Metal roofing lasts
The average life span of roofs which are not metal is about 17 years. Asphalt roofs can require roof replacement or repair every 10 to 20 years, sometimes sooner. Metal roofing, on the other hand, will last two to three times that, sometimes up to fifty years. Metal roofing also requires very little maintenance and continues to look beautiful year after year. With today’s metal roofing, it does not matter what style roof, finish or color you have, there will be metal roofing material to match. Metal roofing looks just like any other type of roofing material, including asphalt shingles, cedar shake, clay tile, or slate. However, metal roofing lasts at least two to three times longer.
