The 6 biggest benefits of metal roofing in Edmonton
If you’re thinking about replacing the roof on your home or business, you might feel a little overwhelmed by the many choices. There are a lot of options out there, and it’s only natural to want to choose a roofing material that you’ll be happy with for decades to come. Keep reading for six reasons why we think you should take a second look at metal.
1. Beautiful appearance
When it comes to choosing a new roof, there are few roofing materials that give you as many aesthetic options as metal. Metal roofing makes it easy to achieve all your design goals.
Metals are highly resistant to rain, wind, hail, sleet, snow and even lightening. And contrary to common belief, metal roofing won’t rust. In fact, metals are one of the most durable roofing materials money can buy.
3. Noise free protection
Another common misconception about metal is that it’s noisy when in fact, metal roofing is just as silent as every other type of modern roof. The metal part of your roof is only one out of several layers that make up the entire roofing system and is well buffered against noise from rain, wind and hail.
4. Energy efficient
Metal roofing is an energy efficient material. The finish on most metal roofs contains pigments that reflect sunlight, keeping your house cooler during Edmonton’s hot summer months and well protected against the cold winds of winter.
5. It’s low maintenance
Provided your metal roof was installed by fully licenced and qualified roofing contractors, it will last a lifetime. While you should always be on the lookout for potential problems with your roofing system, metal roofing typically requires very little maintenance and very few repairs over the course of its lifetime.
6. Completely recyclable
Metal is one of the most eco-friendly roofing materials available because it’s 100% recyclable. Unlike many other roofing materials, it won’t end up in the landfill at the end of its useful life. Not only that, but the vast majority of metal roofing is made from already recycled materials, making it an environmentally sustainable product on many fronts.
