Installation and Repair of Metal Roofs by Solation
Installing metal roofs on your Lexington area home will prove to be a wise decision and a good investment. Although the initial cost of materials is higher than other types of roofing material such as asphalt, shingle, shake or clay tile, metal roofing lasts 2 to 3 times longer. Metal roofs eliminate the re-roofing cost associated with an asphalt roof which has an average life of 17 years. Asphalt roofs need to be re-roofed every 10-20 years. Metal roofs on the other hand have exceptional durability that they could last up to 50 years. The metallic coating that is bonded to the steel metal roofing at the factory prevents rusting. Paint is applied over the metallic coating which provides long lasting color and added protection against rusting. Today’s metal roofs are rated to withstand 150 mph winds and can easily handle extreme weather like high winds, heavy snow and hail. Most metal roofs are also backed by a 30-50 year manufacturer’s warranty.
Today’s metal roofs come in a variety of colors and styles to match any architectural design. They can look like other roofing materials such as asphalt, shingle, clay tile, cedar shake or slate. There is a style and color to match any style of house. With metal roofs, there is no need to sacrifice quality and durability over looks. Homeowners can have both durability and looks ,while increasing the value of their home.
Metal roofing is also very energy efficient. Its reflective quality can lower cooling costs in the summer by preventing the transfer of heat to the building. By providing excellent insulation, metal roofs lower heating costs in the winter as well.
