The Benefits of Metal Roofing

Your choice of roofing is a very important one. While it might not be immediately obvious like your doors and your windows, there are aesthetic and practical benefits to getting your roof right. In this article, the team at JTC Roofing will talk you through the benefits of metal roofing. 

Metal Roofing is long-lasting

Metal roofs last for a long time. They’re proven to have a lifespan of at least 50 years, so you needn’t have to worry about shelling out for a new roof once your metal one is installed. Painted metal roofs may have a slightly shorter lifespan than non-painted ones, but even so, you can expect at least 30 years of reliability from a painted metal roof.

Metal Roofing is weatherproof

Metal roofs protect your home from all manner of weather conditions, as well as being highly-resistant to a lot of the elements themselves. It’s resistant to things like mildew and rot, which can befall roofs of other materials, and it’s very adept at keeping water out and sheltering the home from high winds.

Metal Roofs energy efficiency is high

Metal can actually help you keep your energy bills down. It reflects heat, which means that the midday sun won’t turn your home into a sweltering greenhouse – and in summer, t you won’t have to use your air conditioning as much, which will help to reduce your bills. 

Metal Roofing Is eco-friendly

As well as helping to keep your energy bills low, metal roofs themselves are eco-friendly. Aluminium roofs, for example, are made up of up to 90% recycled material, and stainless steel roofs are 100% recyclable. So, in the unlikely event you want or need to replace your stainless steel roof, you can rest assured that none of it is going to landfill, and if you opt for an aluminium roof, you will be avoiding heavy-duty manufacturing processes too.

Metal Roofing is light on maintenance

You don’t have to worry about strenuous cleaning and upkeep when it comes to your metal roof. The only thing you’ll need to concern yourself with is removing leaves and debris from your gutters; the roof itself doesn’t require any elbow grease.

Metal Roofing is light

Metal roofs are surprisingly lightweight, and this is of great benefit when it comes to installation. For heavier roofs, additional structural support may be required to ensure the building can comfortably support the weight of the roof. With metal roofing, this is not the case. When compared to things like tiled roofs, the difference in weight is vast. 

Metal roofing provides a number of benefits. From structural integrity and decades of reliability to lower energy bills, it ticks a lot of boxes, so you can be sure you’re making the right choice with a metal roof.
