Why Metal Roofs are becoming popular?

Metal roofing is set to overtake asphalt as the most popular roofing material in the nation. Standing seam steel is the most commonly used type of metal roofing. It’s stylish, low-maintenance, and energy-efficient. So why have so many homeowners been hesitant to buy a metal roof? There are some misconceptions about steel roofs that need to be addressed before making your decision.

Long Lasting and Durable

One of the biggest reasons for metal roofing becoming popular is that it’s durable and long-lasting. You’ll get at least 30 years out of standing seam metal roofing as long as it’s properly installed and your attic is adequately ventilated.

If you want to get the most out of your metal roof, hire a local contractor with experience installing metal roofing immediately. It could be the difference between getting up to 50 years out of your new metal roof or having it rust and need replacement in as little as five years.

Great Material Warranty

Kynar 500 is a painted finish applied to the steel panels of your standing seam metal roof. It protects the metal from the elements and keeps the color from fading as it ages. The 30-year materials and workmanship warranty is what makes painted steel roofs so popular. This warranty covers the paint for 30 years against peeling, flaking, blistering or cracking. And, even though the painted finish is only covered for 30 years, it won’t necessarily disappear after 30 years. But once the metal roof hits the 30-year mark, I recommend budgeting for a replacement to ensure you're financially prepared.

 

 

The Versatility of Metal Roofing

While the cost of a full metal roof system may be too much for most homeowners, adding metal to your home doesn’t have to break the bank. Using metal on those accent areas including porches, gazebos and other outdoor living spaces can give your home a touch of class that it needs without breaking the bank. You can also use metal roofing as a way to increase your home’s curb appeal. Your metal roof system will not only look great, but it will help keep you safe from the elements and extend the life of your actual roof.

 

 

Boost Up Your Curb Appeal

As I mentioned, metal roofing is becoming much more popular. One of the reasons why it is being used more often is because it can do a lot for the look of a home. This boost to your home’s curb appeal is a big reason why metal roofing is so popular now. A standing seam metal roof system is one of the best alternatives to a traditional asphalt shingle or tile roof. Having a standing seam metal roof system on your home greatly increases your home’s curb appeal, making it look more appealing from the outside plus more durable and long-lasting than your ordinary asphalt shingle or tile roofs. Adding standing seam metal roofs to certain areas of your home makes for a great accent and is less expensive than having an entire metal roof over the entire house. Your home will get a big boost to its curb appeal no matter where you decide to add metal roofing. In my opinion, it is a wise investment for your home but only if you have some savings available to make this decision.

 

 

Virtually Maintenance Free

Roof maintenance is a major area of concern for homeowners. So much work and money goes into completing the installation of your roof, it’s only natural that you want to make sure it lasts as long as possible. Metal roofing is an ideal material for this purpose because of its advantageous durability and longevity. One of the reasons metal roofing is becoming more popular is that it’s virtually maintenance-free. After installation, the only major maintenance needed is checking around penetrations such as vent pipes, gas pipes, etc. You will have to clean your standing seam metal roof from time to time. The good news is that this is really easy to do. All you need is a hose with a sprayer attachment and about five minutes of your time. Cleaning the roof once or twice a year will extend its life and keep it looking brand new for many years to come.
