Most homeowner’s insurance does offer discounts for having a durable, hail-resistant, Class A fire-rated storm-resistant metal roof. Metal roofs are most often made from zinc, copper, or steel alloy pieces or tiles and can last anywhere from 40 to 70 years, this along with their fire-resistant qualities make metal roofs very attractive to insurance companies.

The answer to this metal roofing question: A metal roof is the most cost-effective roofing system you can install. While the upfront cost is a little more than a shingle roof, the life cycle is up to 100 years (per the Army Corps of Engineers). With energy savings and potential increase in home value, a metal roof pays for itself.

The metal roofing material is 100% recyclable. This sustainable material can go back to the mill and be recycled and used again. Unfortunately, asphalt material goes into the landfill. The United States and Canada are the only countries that install asphalt roofing.

When you buy a house and get it inspected, the inspector will immediately notate the expected life of the roof. This typically sends the buyer and seller back into negotiations for roof concessions. However, with a metal roof, this will not be an issue since these types of roofs can last about 100 years. Metal roofs are viewed as an asset while asphalt roofs become a liability as soon as the last nail is hammered in. Raise your home’s value by installing a metal roof.

I heard about Gator metal roofing on TV. I called them and a appointment was set up for the next day. I was impressed with the lifetime warranty and was shown different samples of metal and colors. Everyone was very professional from the salesman to the installer. My roof looks great so I have given them a 5 star rating. Thanks to everyone.

We got the berry color metal roof and it turned out very nice. The two men who put the metal roof on were very respectful and they did a great job. The salesman Tony we saw first was a very nice and helpful man.

We saw their ad on the TV one morning and called and in two days they had someone come out at our convenience, which was a Sunday, and gave us a very in-depth presentation of what they had to offer after he did the inspection. They did the roof in one day and they were so professional!!! We have peace of mind that the job was done so quickly and correctly. We love our new roof!!!
