Benefits of Metal roofing
When undertaking a construction project, it’s crucial to compare the pros and cons of metal roofs against other commonly used roofing materials, including tile, wood, and asphalt. Below are some of the benefits of metal roofs.
Benefits of Metal Roofing
Optimum shedding of snow and rain
Metal roofs are practically impervious to snow and rain due to their interlocking panels. This makes them the perfect choice for Toronto and surrounding cities. Metal roof surfaces are slippery and hard which makes them effective in shedding snow and rain.
Minimum roof pitches
The majority of metal roofing materials are installable on gently pitched roofs and so ensure that there is no leakage. It is possible to achieve minimum roof pitch with metal roofs as they only account for a 3-inch roof rise for every horizontal foot.
Metal roofing materials are non-combustible, and they are categorized as Class A fire rating, which is the highest fire-resistant rating. However, it’s important to note a roof’s overall resistance from fire can depend based on materials underneath the surface as well, which could catch fire if exposed to intense heat. For instance, a metal roof installed over combustible materials such as wood shingles have a lower fire-resistance.
Ease and speed of roofing installation
The majority of metal roofing materials are designed in multiple-shingle sections or 12-36 inch wide panels. With a professional contractor, these panels are quick to install. Metal roofs installations provide more labor savings due to their shortened installation period compared to other roofing solutions.
In comparison with other roofing materials, metal roofs are considerably lightweight. For instance, a metal tile of 100 square feet weighs approximately 750 pounds while a concrete tile of similar size weighs approximately 900 pounds. It is worth noting that metal roofs are the most lightweight roofing materials available. Which is why it’s possible to install metal roofs over existing shingles, thus, resulting in environmental conservation by avoidance of landfill disposal and faster service due to not having to remove the existing roof.
Long expected life
When properly installed, metal roofs can last the lifetime of your house. This is because metal roofs are resistant to roofing destruction agents such as strong winds, mildew, rot, and insects.
Metal roofs have the ability to reflect radiant heat originating from the sun, hence, reducing midday heat accumulation in your house. Due to the integration of thermal breaks and reflective coatings, metal roofs have the capacity to reduce summer cooling costs by approximately 20% or even more.
Added aesthetic value
Metal roofing can add a distinctive and lasting beauty to your home. Other metal roofing solutions, such as shingles, have a much quicker deterioration process, making them lose aesthetic value and start appearing shabby in just a few years after installation.
Recyclability of metal roofs
About 35% to 95% of most metal roof content used is recycled content and they are 100% recyclable after removal as well. Metal roofing is environmentally friendly as it doesn’t require landfill disposal like other roofing materials such as shingle roofs.
Most metal roofs are designed to have panels for interconnecting or interlocking when installing. Such a feature offers a more superior wind resistance than other roofing materials that only overlap or rely on gravity for holding the roofing in place.
Though metal roofing materials have considerably higher initial costs, they are economical in the long-term due to their low maintenance cost and lifetime warranty.
Overall metal roofs are an excellent choice and have more benefits than traditional roofs. When considering purchasing roofing materials for your home, it’s highly recommended to weigh the benefits of metal roofs against other roofing solutions like tile, wood, or asphalt.
