Broken Arrow Metal Roofs
Metal Roofs, Metal Shingles, Seam Metal Roofing And More.
When you are buying a new roof, there are many factors that go into the cost of it. Asphalt shingles, wood shakes, tile… all of these factor into the price of a roof. They also factor greatly into the function of a roof. Not all roofs are created equal. When it comes to the performance, durability, and lifespan of a roof, it matters a lot what it is made of.
Metal Roofs Are Built To Last
A Metal roof can last 40-50 years as oopsed to 20 years like its shingled counterparts. They easily seal out water, let the snow fall off, survive high winds and more. They even ward off insects, are fire resistent, and do not rot the way wood and asphalt roofs do. When it comes to longevity, nothing is going to last as long as a metal roof.
Nont only do they live a long time, they are very lightweight. Metal roofs can weigh half as much as traditional asphaly shingle roofs, which means saving the structure of your home or business. That weight reduction can be a big help when it comes to a buildings foundation.
Metal Roofs Are Fire Resistant And Install Fast
It goes without saying that metal is a noncombustible material, meaning it does not catch fire. And this is a huge upside to having a metal roof when safety is a factor in your decision making.
Metal roofs also go on very fast. Because metal comes in sheets that are usually 3 feet wide by 6,8, 10 or more feet long, it cuts down on the installation time. It also makes repairs a lot easier if your roof is ripped off by a tornado. Metal sheets for seam roofing can also come in custom sizes. This results in cost savings when it comes to how much labor is involved to install a roof.
Good In The Weather And Environementally Friendly
Metal roofs not only seal out water and moisture, but they also reflect heat. In Oklahoma that means a metal roof will shed heavy rain and snow fall easily, it will also help block out those hot summer rays, which could save you money on your energy bills. They also stand up to high winds better than shingles. Reports have shown metal roofs to withstand 140mph winds of F5 tornadoes.
Metal roofs are also good for the environment. Because they do not have to be replaced as often as shingle roofs do, they are not taking up space in landfills. If you are considering a metal roof for your home or business, call Solid Roofing today to get a fast free estimate.
