Metal roofing has become a very popular option for homeowners in Maine. Here are three of the most notable reasons people are making the switch.
Durability and longevity
Asphalt shingles can require replacement every 12 to 20 years, with the average age of roofing replaced in the U.S. being only 17 years. Unlike asphalt roofing, which is made of oil impregnated paper or fiberglass; metal roofing will not deteriorate or decompose due to weather conditions.
Good for your home and the environment
The recycled content of the steel in a metal roof is about 56%; from production to installation to reuse – which is far superior to asphalt. A new metal roof can often be installed over your current roof, without tearing off what’s already there. Metal roofs are also excellent insulators; not only will your metal roof keep your house comfortable regardless of the weather outside, but it can actually lower your air conditioning and heating bills.
A metal roof is a premium roof system, which adds value to your most important investment-your home. While a metal roof may cost more than an asphalt roof initially, other roofing systems will cost more in repair and replacement over the life of your roof.
