Is a Metal Roof Right for Your Property?
Commercial Metal Roof Installers With Integrity
Through the years we at Armadillo Roofing & Exteriors have observed the effects of weather like we have here in Texas, and the tremendous toll it takes on your roof. In cases where severe weather conditions persist, we highly recommend installing a metal roofing system.
Metal roofs, in the past, weren’t thought to be traditional roofing. But, they are gaining in popularity due to their features. They’re durable, lightweight, mostly maintenance free, fire retardant and energy efficient. Another great feature of metal is it can be formed to look like almost any other style of roofing. Also, metal roofs can have a life expectancy as long as 30 to 50 years.
Metal roofing is beneficial in a variety of ways. They provide excellent protection against all weather elements. One of the big reasons metal roofs are popular on commercial buildings is the snow removal factor. It slides off easily, leaving your roof free of the weight that standing snow can add.
Another advantage of metal roofing systems is ecological. Steel is the most recycled material in North America, making it a great environmentally friendly choice. The surfaces of metal roofs reflect solar energy and re-emit the heat, creating a more cost effective property. This reflective surface will also save you money in the long run with energy savings.
Its up to you as a building owner to decide which material will work best for your roof. Metal roofing does have a few disadvantages, but it can be the best choice for some properties. We can help assist you as you make the decision of what roofing system you would like to install on your property. Our experienced crew members are able to install any kind of metal roof that meets your requirements.
You Need a Commercial Metal Roofing Contractor on Your Side
Are you thinking of installing a metal roof on your property? Here are some of the advantages of installing a metal roofing system on your property:
Long Term Financial Advantages
Many property owners are hesitant to install metal roofing materials because the upfront expenses are higher. However, when comparing to traditional roofing systems like asphalt shingles, metal roof owners usually save a lot of money in the long run. This is because a metal roof will have a life expectancy of 30 to 50 years or more, with a lifetime warranty. A property owner with an asphalt roof will probably be replacing their roof every 10-20 years. A metal roof, however, could be the last roof you ever have to install.
Another great financial selling point for metal roofs is that they may reduce your property insurance, depending on your insurance company you are with and the type of policy you have. Metal roofs are more fire resistant and they hold up better in extreme weather than other roofing materials.
Metal naturally reflects the sun’s heat. This can be a big selling point to property owners that have large cooling and heating expenses for their properties.
Its Very Versatile
Metal as a material is becoming more versatile. You can employ many different shapes, colors and thicknesses of metal roofing that look like shake, slate, standing seam, tile and traditional shingles.
Metal panels and shingles can also be made of a variety of materials:
Zinc or Aluminum coated steel
Stone coated steel
Lead and tin coated soft metals
If you think a metal roof might be the right fit for your property, it will make your property look unique and modern while you enjoy the energy savings and dependability as well. In Texas, metal roofs are becoming more and more popular on commercial buildings and growing in popularity and beauty.
