Metal roofing is an increasingly popular choice among homeowners and facility managers alike. Known for their exceptional durability, metal roofs come in a wide variety of colors and configurations. Innovations in paint and coating technology have helped improve the performance of these roofing systems significantly, alleviating worries of corrosion.
Today, Feller Roofing of New Braunfels discusses metal roofing and how it compares to other roofing materials.
Expected Life Span
When it comes to service life, metal roofing is up there with the other high-end roofing options. On average, metal has an average life span of 50 years or more, which is similar to that of clay tile roofing. In comparison, asphalt shingles usually last from 15 to 20 years and shake roofing around 30 years. Slate roofs, however, can reach up to 75 years.
Level of Maintenance
Today’s metal roofs can resist fading, chalking and cracking under even the toughest conditions, so roof repairs and replacements are not as frequent for these roofing systems as the other roofing options. In comparison, asphalt shingles, wood shakes, and other roofing materials require yearly inspections. Maintenance, however, is still important for any roof, including metal, to perform well and provide protection against the elements.
Metal roofs are among the most environment-friendly building materials. Most of them are made up of recycled materials. Since they’re lightweight, they’re easier to ship and install. They’re also 100% recyclable, which means they don’t add up to landfill waste.
