Metal roofing systems have been around for quite some time, but initially, they were used only on the flat structures on commercial and industrial buildings. However, the manifold benefits offered by the material have been recognized by roofing material manufacturers as well as by building owners and roofers and metal systems today come in versions that can be installed on sloping roofs as well. Here are a few of the many reasons to choose metal for your next roof:
- Longevity – roof installation is not something that you want to do every year and with a metal roof you don’t have to. Metal roof systems can last for 40-70 years, so your new metal roof is likely to provide adequate protection to your home for a very long time;
- Durability – metal is among the strongest materials used in construction, metal roofs being able to stand up to all types of harsh weather, including thermal extremes, rain, snow, wind and storm;
- Attractive appearance – metal roofing systems come in a wide array of designs and colors, being suitable for architectures of any style;
- Energy efficiency – metal roofs promote the thermal balance inside the building, efficiently reducing the amount of energy needed for cooling and heating your home. Be sure to have a roofing company like Home Solutions of Nebraska do the installation for the best results.
