Metal roofing is so durable and easy to maintain that it's a popular choice for commercial, agricultural, and industrial uses. Residential metal roofing is popular today too. Residential metal roofing is not only durable; it's also attractive. You can have a metal roof put on your home even if you have asphalt shingles on now. Here's why it's worth considering a metal roof for your home.
You Don't Want To Replace Your Roof Again
Metal is durable, but it can be damaged in a bad storm. However, under normal circumstances and with proper maintenance, a metal roof should last for decades. Metal usually lasts much longer than asphalt shingles. If you're approaching retirement, you may want a roof that has a good chance of lasting the rest of your life. Then, you won't have to spend your retirement savings on a new roof when you would rather spend your money on travel or your retirement hobbies.
You Want To Make Your Home More Attractive
Although it depends on your personal preferences, you may find that a metal roof is more attractive than common asphalt shingles. You could get a blue, red, orange, or white roof that complements your exterior paint and your home's architecture. Metal roofs are made to resist rust, and they hold their color, so your roof not only will last a long time, but it will also hold its attractive looks rather than degrading like asphalt shingles would.
You Don't Want To Repair Shingles Again
If you do your own roof maintenance, you might want to consider if you'll be able to climb on your new roof as it ages to fix cracked, crooked, or missing asphalt shingles. As you age or develop problems with mobility, it may be too risky to climb on your roof, and it can be expensive to call a roofer to fix loose shingles all the time. Instead, you can put on a metal roof and never have to worry about repairing asphalt shingles again.
You Want Better Protection For Your Home
A metal roof provides protection from fire, rain, animals, snow, and wind. Metal roofing is a good choice when you want a roof that protects your home against water damage and other dangers.
Ask your roofer for advice about metal roofing so you make an informed decision about what type of roof is best for your home. You might be able to put a metal roof over your old shingles, but your roofer might advise tearing off the old roof and inspecting the deck for damage so repairs can be done before the metal roof is put on.
