Need to replace your roof? Has it suffered damage via storms, perhaps has developed a few annoying leaks, or is just looking shabby? What is your current roof made of? Rusty iron sheeting? Faded and chipped tiles? Asbestos even?
Seriously, you should consider upgrading that old roof with a brand new roof made of metal. Metal roofing has its distinct advantage over other roofing materials and in this post we’ll cover some reasons why.
It’s Environmentally Friendly
It’s energy efficient and it’s green. Metal roofing truly is the modern day way to go when thinking roof replacement. Some of the metal used in the manufacture of metal roofing is made from recycled materials. Steel can be recycled over and over.
Metal Roofing Is Durable
Metal roofing is tough and flexible. It’s extremely corrosion-resistant and it tends to reflect, rather than absorb, light and heat. With its inherent ability to repel weather and sunlight, metal roofing stands the test of time and looks good for much longer than other roofing materials.
Lower Energy Bills
It’s true. Installing metal roofing will help keep your energy costs down. As mentioned, it has the ability to repel the heat, meaning your home will stay cooler. It’s the perfect roofing material for the effective installation of insulation and solar panels.
Far Less Chance Of Leaks
Metal roofing comes in custom length sheeting, meaning there are way less joins in the roof where potential leaks could form. It can also be walked on without the risk of causing damage that leads to a leaking roof.
This equates to less overall stress on the structure of your home. Metal Roofing is far lighter than tiles, corrugated iron or that old asbestos sheeting. At the same time though, once installed correctly, it is super tough, so don’t let the lack of weight fool you into thinking metal roofing won’t hold up to Queensland weather conditions. It certainly will and then some.
When you choose metal roofing for your roof replacement, you really do add loads of street appeal to your home. In fact, it can even make your home look new again. Metal roofing is contemporary, stylish and modern. You will be the envy of your neighbours.
Metal Roofing Adds Value To Your Home
A brand new roof will not only increase your home’s overall street appeal, it will add stacks of value to your home; likely more value than the cost of the roof replacement. It doesn’t matter whether you intend to sell in the future or not. It’s just a great feeling knowing your home’s value has increased.
