Metal roofs are durable, long lasting, and energy efficient. Compared to other roofing systems, metal roofs are lightweight. They are also low maintenance and come in a variety of colors. Installing a metal roof is more expensive than an asphalt shingle roof, but it will last much longer and require less maintenance.
Benefits of a Metal Roof
- Lifespan: Homeowners are drawn to metal roofing because of its longevity. Metal roofing last much longer than asphalt shingle roofing and requires very little maintenance.
- Energy Efficient: Metal roofing reflects heat from the sun, significantly reducing your energy bills and keeping your home cooler in the summer.
- Wind and Fire Resistant: Metal roofing systems are wind resistant. Metal roofing is also naturally fire resistant.
- Environmentally Friendly: Metal roofing is partially made from recycled materials and can also be recycled when eventually removed from a roof.
Copper roofing provides an attractive appearance that can complement any building style. Copper roofing is long lasting, lightweight, and low maintenance. Copper is also flexible, allowing it to easily be formed and shaped. Unlike some other metal roofing materials, copper doesn’t require finishes or painting. Over time, copper will naturally weather to bronze colors and then eventually a green patina. Copper can be installed on a portion of, or the entire roof. It is often used for trim and special features, such as gutters, roof vents, and chimney caps.
