Welcome to our blog and we are thrilled to have you here! We feel that our very first post should of course be about the pros of having a metal roof. We are a little bias here, but you will soon find out why.
Metal roofing has come a long way in the past several years. First, there are so many options and colors now that are aesthetically beautiful and really add an amazing look and feel to your home, barn, or commercial building. A fun way to mix and match all the different color options is to check out our fun metal roof color visualizer where you can explore all kinds of color options.
Although it’s a common misconception that metal roofs are noisy when rain or hail hits, the reality is that when properly installed, metal roofing is no noisier than any other type. Yep, you heard that right. Who would have guessed that? Another reason why metal roofing has exploded in popularity is that it is virtually fireproof. Believe us, we know how important this is. The past summer here in Colorado, we experienced one of the largest wildfires in the state. It was pretty intense with thousands of first responders working around the clock 24/7 to keep people and animal life safe. Overall, with the dangers of wildfire on the rise across the nation, metal roofing has become the roofing material of choice in many parts of the country.
Although metal roofs are very long-lasting over 40+ years, when the time comes to replace one, the old metal is accepted at metal recycling centers. Finally, of course, we could go on and on, but one other important component is that metal roofs are more energy-efficient! We don’t know about your energy bill, but every penny helps. The coating on the panels can maximize the reflective capacity of the roof therefore bingo will help improve energy savings.
p.s. You also might think that a metal roof will attract lightning, but it doesn’t. We promised you! However, we do know someone that was hit by lightning and survived. True story!
