If your roof will need replacing soon, you may be looking at alternative materials instead of your existing asphalt shingles. Metal is an excellent choice for many reasons, not the least of which is its energy efficiency, durability and long lifespan. Here are some reasons why you should choose metal for your roof replacement in Hanson Massachusetts this year.
Metal Roofs Are Gaining in Popularity
Metal roofs are a growing trend with no signs of stopping. Long popular in commercial applications, metal roofing is making its way into the mainstream residential housing market. In fact, research shows it’s a $3.3 billion industry in North America, with an estimated value of $4 billion this year. The demand is expected to rise nearly three percent by 2023, thanks to its ability to lower energy bills, its weather resistance and its unique appearance.
You Can Lower Your Home Insurance Bills
Metal roofs are known for their ability to withstand the elements such as hail, heavy rain, high winds and snow. But they can also protect homes during fires. In fact, many home insurance companies provide a big discount on homeowners insurance when installing a metal roof – up to a 30 percent reduction!
Metal Roofs Are A Cost Effective Choice
Many homeowners get sticker shock when they see that metal roofs cost up to three to four times that of an asphalt roof. However, that initial cost will be more than offset over the years due to metal’s much longer lifespan. Whereas you have to replace a shingle roof every 20 years, a metal roof can last three times that or more. You can get upwards of 60 years of life out of one metal roof, sometimes 75 or even 100 if it’s maintained well.
You Can Reduce Home Heating and Cooling Costs
Metal roofs provide exceptional insulation, which reduces both air conditioning and heating bills. This means you can get cooler comfort in summer and warmer comfort in winter, while paying less for your energy bills.
You Get a Wide Variety of Choices
Metal roofs come in an array of different styles, finishes, textures, profiles, and colors, as well as steep slope and low slop applications. You can even choose styles that mimic the look of slate, cedar shake, asphalt shingles and clay tiles, making it easy to satisfy your own personal preferences as well as the requirements of your homeowners association.
As you can see, there are many reasons why choosing to install a metal roof for your home this year is a wise decision. We can help get you started.
