Different roofing materials can provide energy efficiency, fire resistance, and greater durability for homeowners. Metal roofing is one of the best options for homeowners seeking to replace their existing roofing system. Guardian Roof Systems now offers a variety of metal roofing choices, allowing homeowners to select a material that will adequately protect their home.
Metal roofing provides a variety of price structures, making it an affordable selection for roofing replacement. Comparing metal roofs to asphalt shingles, wood shakes, and concrete tile, metal roofs easily outlast their competition. The other roofing materials tend to wear out in 10 to 15 years, whereas a metal roof can last upwards of 40 years. The metal materials will withstand fire, which can reduce homeowner's insurance costs. A metal roof can protect a home adequately against high winds, water, heat, ice and snow.
Comparing the pricing of different roofing materials, metal roofing is slightly more expensive. However, the expense of the materials will pay off over the longer life of the roof. The other roofing materials are normally a short-term solution for roofing replacement. Several homeowners use these materials when selling a home, as it helps to market the home by stating the roof was recently replaced. Metal roofing increases the property value of the home without requiring replacement as frequently, and it improves the overall aesthetics of the home. Homeowners seeking to sell the home can increase the asking price of their home by $20,000 or more by installing a metal roof.
Durability is one of the most important things when selecting the right roofing material. A metal roof is likely to last a lifetime for a homeowner. This investment can save a homeowner a lot of money for the cost of installation and materials, but also for the cost of energy. A metal roof has a unique feature, which is to reflect the sun from the home. This reduces how hot the attic and home can become, requiring the home's cooling system to work less hard and save energy. A metal roof will have a two-coat, high-performance finish. This finish is designed to protect the roof against the harsh weather elements. The coating used will help to prevent 75 percent of the sun's energy from being absorbed into the roof, thereby reducing the energy costs for the home.
The other benefit to metal roofing is the weight. It will not require additional support beams to be installed for the roof. A metal roof actually weight one-third less than an asphalt roof. A metal roof performs well during rainstorms as it is impervious to water absorption. A metal roof cannot be penetrated by hail, and contrary to popular belief, the metal roof is not noisier during rain and hailstorms. Guardian Roof Systems now offers competitive metal roofing prices to their Pearland customers.
