  • Last a lifetime

METAL ROOF POPULARITY

Metal roofs have been exponentially increasing in popularity over the past five years primarily because consumers see the benefits of durable materials that look beautiful. Metal roofs are more durable than asphalt roofs and can be combined with attractive color schemes to make any home look brand new.

Not only will homes with a metal roof last long, but it’s incredibly cost-effective. Due to the ability to last forever, a metal roof can win any battle against hail, snow, ice, strong winds, and other extremes.

Homeowners with metal roofs love the options of choosing colors, types, and styles. We regularly receive compliments after completing a roof installation because the colors the homeowner selected makes their entire house look new. And thanks to the durability, the roof looks brand new for years and years.

Metal roofing systems provide enormous cost savings over time to homeowners due to its ability to keep homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Our clients see savings that are mind-boggling from their energy bill which saves thousands of dollars over a short period. Imagine slashing your energy bill in half. In many cases, it only takes a few months for some of our customer’s to save a thousand dollars! A metal roof is an investment that keeps on giving back.

For these reasons, metal roofing systems are considered energy efficient. They last 3-4 times longer than asphalt and meet the criteria for recycled content, recyclability, and energy efficiency. Metal roofs are considered one of the most energy efficient roofing systems available.

Metal can reflect up to 70% of the sun’s energy. Sun reflection minimizes heat retention, and as a result, less heat transfers into the building’s structure. Further, 1985 research by the Florida Solar Energy Center showed that metal experienced a 34% less heat gain than asphalt shingles which can make your home cooler and more comfortable in the summertime.

Lightning is attracted to the highest point, not necessarily metal. A metal roof has no greater chance of being hit by lightning than any other type of roof.

Metal Roof Cost

Metal Masters Metal Roofing Systems last a lifetime and save enormous amounts of money in energy savings. Metal roofs also withstand the toughest of storms that would damage asphalt roofs. Often, thanks to the safety ratings, people can save money with their insurance companies (check your insurance company for details).

There is no simple answer to how much the bottom line will be for your roofing project. A bid from your contractor should be on square footage, the pitch of the roof, accessibility, type of roofing material needed, 1- or 2-story home, removal of the old roof (if necessary), roof permit and labor.

The average cost to replace a roof is flexible depending on the size of the roof, the quality of the workmanship, and materials.

Metal Roof Installation

Not everyone can install a metal roof. Unfortunately, we have seen too many horror stories of contractors who have poorly installed a metal roof, and then we come in to re-install the metal roofing system the right way. It’s always best to make sure your metal roofing contractor has YEARS of experience.

You will want to ask them for photos of recent work. You want a contractor that can supply you with images quickly so you can know for sure they will be able to install your roof correctly the first time.

Metal Roof VS Asphalt Roof

First of all, we are not biased on metal roofs vs. asphalt roofs because we install both types. We often hear this question about the difference between the two. So here are a few things for you to consider when deciding on your roofing type.

Asphalt roofs are generally less expensive in the short term due to the cost of materials and installation is slightly easier. Metal roofing has a higher one time cost of materials and requires skilled labor to complete the work correctly the first time.

Asphalt is more expensive in the long term because they are not as energy efficient and asphalt shingles need to be replaced about four times over the life of a home. Metal roofs are SIGNIFICANTLY less expensive over time because they last a lifetime and they are extremely energy efficient, so home energy bills are lower in both the Winter and the Summer.

Asphalt roofing systems have some color variations. Metal roofing systems have many color variations.

Asphalt roofs attract and hold heat because of the dark colors and absorption qualities. Metal roofs reflect heat in the warm months and trap heat in the cold months. Metal can reflect up to 70% of the sun’s energy. The reflection minimizes heat retention, and as a result, less heat transfers into the building’s structure. Further, 1985 research by the Florida Solar Energy Center showed that metal experienced a 34% less heat gain than asphalt shingles which can make your home cooler and more comfortable in the summertime.
