Best Buy Metals is now carrying a wide variety of metal shingles, shakes, and slate. These quality products complement their existing metal roofing styles. According to Isaac Libbey, owner of Best Buy Metals, "Over the long run our metal roofing is actually less expensive than other roofing materials, due to its longer lifetime and energy savings."
This metal roofing lasts far longer than asphalt shingles. The average shingle life is about 17 years, while metal roofing often lasts 50 years and more. For this reason people refer to it as a "lifetime roof." While the initial cost of Best Buy Metals roofing is often higher than that of other materials, over the long run it pays for itself.
Due to its light weight, in most cases, Best Buy Metals materials can be installed over the existing roof using a 30 lb underlayment, not only eliminating expensive labor and disposal costs, but also protecting the environment by sparing landfill space. Make sure to check your local building codes, as a few do not allow this.
Best Buy Metals materials are also highly energy efficient. The paint systems now used are highly advanced siliconized polyester, which reflects rays from the sun. And even under the paint system is a coating comprised of 55% zinc and 45% aluminum, which also serves as a radiant barrier. In the end, this means lower heating and air conditioning bills. The majority of Best Buy Metals roofing styles are EnergyStar ® rated, meeting all the stringent specifications of the Environmental Protection Agency. Because of this, you may receive a tax credit at the end of the year. Visit http://www.energy.gov/taxbreaks.htm for more information.
Even with lower pricing, Best Buy Metals carries the highest quality products. According to the Metal Roofing Alliance http://www.metalroofing.com "The average life of a non-metal roof is 17 years. Asphalt can require re-roofing every 10 to 20 years, often sooner. But a metal roof offers unmatched durability, lasting 2 to 3 times longer. Chances are good that a metal roof will be the last roof you ever install on your home." Best Buy Metals carries many different style panels with warranties standard from 40 to 50 years.
