If you don’t save 40% on your energy bills in the first year, we’ll pay the difference.**
Now, they are quickly becoming one of if not the most popular roofing materials out there. We get it; deciding just what kind of roofing you want for your home is no simple choice. Metal roofs distinguish themselves for a few different reasons: the incredible resistance to sun, snow, rain, heavy winds, and all elements. Metal roofing is also highly customizable and offers far more options than any other roofing material. Lastly, but most importantly for many, a metal roof is going to provide you incredible energy savings year-round. Contact us today to learn more.
Many building owners, both commercial and residential, are looking for metal roofs for both new constructions and replacing their existing roofing material. Metal roofing looks better, lasts longer, and has so many other benefits.
Let’s go over just a few of the many reasons we at Gator Metal Roofing think metal roofing is set apart from any other roofing material.
Let’s talk style. Sure, asphalt shingles come in different colors, but they all have the same general appearance at the end of the day. On the other hand, metal roofing has a unique appearance that grabs the eye and comes with a far more comprehensive range of color options than any other roofing. Beyond appearance, you are also getting an incredible return on your investment. There’s absolutely no doubt that your metal roof will pay for itself over its lifetime. One major contributor to this is just how relatively maintenance-free it is for its entire life.
Saving money may seem counterintuitive to some, seeing as how your average metal roof will cost more than the average shingles or other roofing material. However, in the long-term, you are going to get far more for your money. These are the two primary reasons you’re going to save money – the first is metal roofing materials are just more robust and longer-lasting than any other. The second is just the expertise required to install metal roofing. It guarantees excellent craftsmanship and a final product that will work for you as long as it possibly can.
It costs far less to maintain your metal roofing as well. If you want something like asphalt shingles to last forever, you will need constant maintenance and upkeep. Wind will cause some shingles to flap up over time, and water will eventually seep into any place it can. A metal roof is nearly wholly maintenance-free; the only thing you may have to do from time to time is spray it off if it ever gets dirty!
The Army Corps of Engineers did studies that found a properly installed metal roof can last for up to 100 years, while asphalt tends to hit its limit at about 20 years, give or take.
Many believe that metal roofing is placed directly on top of your home, but installing any new metal roof over an existing quality asphalt shingle roof is essential. The metal acts as a heat shield and reflects much of that heat energy away from your home. You can expect to see your cooling costs reduce substantially, hopefully as much as a quarter of the bill! The metal roofing we use is energy-star rated and certified to be energy-efficient.
Surely at this point, you can no longer be in doubt about the quality of metal roofing itself – when experts install it, a metal roof can easily last just as long as the building it is on will.
Metal roofing is resistant to all potential downfalls and weak points that other roofing materials may have. Having one seamless roofing fixture means far less potential for leaking. Metal roofing is far more robust than asphalt shingles – the way they are attached makes it wind resistant (hurricanes and tornadoes), heat resistant, and offers excellent protection from severe weather like ice or hailstorms.
All of our metal roofs are painted with Smart Paint Technology. It is the absolute top of the line when it comes to painting products. It will never crack, never fade, and never peel away.
It all comes down to the quality of the roof installation job. In theory, a perfectly and carefully installed asphalt shingle roof could last just as long as a poorly installed or rushed metal roofing installation job. You’re already likely spending a good amount of money on your new roofing materials – the least you can do is hire professionals like ourselves to ensure installation is as easy and flawless as it can be.
