Many homeowners spend lots of time trying to figure out how to make the insides and outsides of their home perfect, but one thing they often overlook is their home’s roof. The type of roof you have on top of your home really does matter.
Metal roofs are more popular than ever before, which means more and more homeowners are fully realizing all of the benefits that metal roofing has to offer them.
Metal Roofing Basics and Benefits
Since the late ‘90s, the metal used for roofing has vastly improved from the old-school tin barn roofs. Today’s metal roofs are more durable, lightweight and fire-resistant than ever before. They are also praised because they don’t take long to install, especially compared to other roofing options.
Metal roofs reflect heat from the sun, helping you save energy by keeping your home cool and possibly even qualifying you for special tax credits. A metal roof allows homeowners to save money each month on electricity bills and can reduce your energy consumption by up to 40%.
While they can be a bit more expensive than other roofing options, they will pay for themselves thanks to being especially durable, with the average metal roof lasting at least 50 years. Having a metal roof on your home can also increase its resale value by up to 25%, and can even increase rent premiums.
There are two main types of metal roofing: metal panels and metal shingles.
Metal Panel Roofing
- Raised ribs every six to 12 inches
- Applied vertically
- Has a commercial look favored by architects for being clean, honest and contemporary
- Commonly used on mountain cabins and modern masterpieces
Metal Shingle Roofing
- Made of metal formed into shapes
- Imitates Spanish tile, slate or wood shakes
- Usually given multiple-layer finishes, including granulated-stone topcoats
