Choosing the type of roof that will protect and adorn your home is a big decision. Whether you are contemplating a main, garage or even back patio roof, it is important to consider all options since it is a large investment and you want to make sure you get the most value for your money. For accessory structures, it aesthetically makes sense to match your new roof with the existing shingles of the primary residence. Cohesiveness is always key to a beautiful property! However, many homeowners are now opting for metal roofing and for a myriad of reasons.
Metal roofing has come a long way in recent years through manufacturing, longevity, color and even style. No longer are metal roofs a resemblance of an old, rusty corrugated shed or country barn. There are many styles to choose from, and many look like the roofing materials you are used to seeing in the neighborhood. From metal versions of slate, tile, clay and even wood shakes to the simplistic aesthetic of a metal standing seam roof, there are many options to blend in with the style of your home.
From a designer standpoint, a homeowner cannot go wrong with a metal roof in a standing seam style. A standing seam metal roof is an undisputed and invaluable upgrade from asphalt shingles in the means of longevity, durability, energy efficiency and aesthetic! This style not only compliments most any home with its uniformly modest and clean look, its ingenious design of raised seams, concealed fasteners and lack of exposed screws minimize the chance of leaks or deterioration down the road!
Let’s talk detailed benefits.
The benefits of a metal roof largely outnumber any disadvantages one might find, but the main concern for homeowners is upfront cost. While metal roof systems are more of an investment than an asphalt shingle system, the chance of replacing a conventional system multiple times within the lifespan of a metal roof is great. The durability of a metal roof equals savings in repair and replacement costs for the lifetime of the roof. Overtime, the savings will become apparent and the realization that a metal roof is one of the best investments for a home will be recognized.
