A metal roofing system can be an invaluable asset to the future value of your home. Although the upfront costs for a high quality metal roofing system might appear to be a little steeper than other roofing materials, you will ultimately save money in the long run. One of the big pluses of metal roofing systems is its ability to last. With asphalt roofing, you will have to re-roof every 10 to 20 years, maybe a bit sooner. With a metal roofing system, the homeowner has two to three times longer before having to consider replacing it. Chances are that once you install a metal roofing system, it will be the last system you will need for your home.
Metal roofing systems offer a variety of decorative looks for your home. Regardless of the roofing style you choose and no matter the finish or colour you currently have, we can find you a metal roofing to fit your taste. It is important to note that most metal roofing looks like normal everyday roofing, such as clay tile, slate, cedar shaker, or asphalt shingle. The main difference between metal roofing and other types of roofing is the incredible savings you will enjoy!
If energy efficiency is important to you, then steel roofing is a good choice. With steel roofing, both light and dark colours efficiently reflect heat, thereby reducing cooling needs in the summer. The same roofing system will also effectively insulate your home during the winter, which results in a considerable lowering of energy costs. Two benefits for the price of one!
