Not everyone knows the ins and outs of metal roofing, especially if you didn’t get trained in this discipline. In this post, we are going to go through a beginners guide to metal roofing, and its advantages. We hope that this blog will assist you in choosing the ideal roof for your home.
The Benefits of Metal Roofing
As you may have seen around the Central Coast, metal roofing is rapidly becoming the roofing choice for many residents. The market share itself has quadrupled over the past ten years. Some of the benefits of metal roofing include:
- Lasting performance
- Aesthetic appeal to match any home
- Interlocking panels which provide increased wind resistance
- They are fire-resistant
- They are energy efficient and help with cooling in the house
- Low weight to help preserve the structural integrity
Lower Maintenance Costs
Due to the material of most metal roofing, it hardly ever degrades. When installed correctly, the quality of the metal roof will cancel the occasional repairs, and the maintenance budget will decrease.
Interlocked metal roof panels provide increased and superior wind resistance as opposed to other roofing materials, because of the way they slot together.
Any building structure tends to age, but low weight roofs assist as a protective measure against structural movement and damage. Metal roofs are one of the lowest weight residential roofs you’ll ever come across.
Energy efficiency is essential. For this reason, installing metal roofs in your Central Coast home is necessary. During the summer months, metal roofs can reduce the cooling costs by up 20% or more!
With our recent fire crisis in Australia, anything fire-resistant is worth investing in. Metal roofs are a lasting resistance to airborne sparks which protect from exterior fires.
Metal roofs are adaptable to just about any roof and home design style. Whether your roof is low or steep pitch roofs, tiled or wood shakes can all be included in metal roofs.
