4 Reasons for the Metal Roof Renaissance

You may not have noticed, but there’s been a change in the home-construction industry that’s taken hold over the last few years. Asphalt roofs are gradually disappearing, and the once-dominant roofing material is being replaced by metal.

Whether you’re fixing part of your roof or installing anew one, there are two factors that most homeowners consider: functionality and price. Although these are two vital considerations, other factors must be assessed; the roof’s impact on energy bills, the environment, home infrastructure and building value. Also, you probably want your home to look sleek and clean from the outside, and the right roofing material can help there, too.

Metal is far superior to asphalt in each of these areas. It truly allows homeowners to “have their cake and eat it, too.” While your energy bills shrink and your appraisal value skyrockets, your home will look charming and demonstrate that you value smart investments over cheap alternatives.

Here are four reasons why metal is gradually taking over as the go-to roofing material:

1. Metal Will Reduce Your Energy Bills

Asphalt is thick and dark. In warm, sunny regions that translates into a hotter home. This forces the air conditioner to work harder, which increases your energy bills.

However, metal reflects heat. Even on the sunniest days, your home will be kept cool, and you might not need your air conditioner at all. The energy savings will start to pile up, and you can reinvest that money back into the home, or just spend it on a family vacation!

2. Increase the Value of Your Home

When it comes time to sell your house, potential buyers might be willing to pay a higher price due to the reduced power bills. Home buyers are always attracted to modern infrastructure, and a metal roof shows that the property was maintained and updated to incorporate the latest innovations.

When buyers drive to your home, the roof might be the first structure that captures their attention. Would you rather they see dark, gritty asphalt? Or do you want them to see a sleek, metal roof? It’s the perfect incentive to get buyers to commit.

Also, metal roofs can last decades longer. If you don’t intend to sell your home, that’s one less long-term expense; however, if you do decide to list it, new buyers won’t be concerned about replacing or repairing the roof in the near future.

3. Better for the Environment

There are a number of reasons why metal roofing is healthier for the environment than asphalt materials. The production of asphalt yields tons of gaseous toxins each year. An investment in asphalt perpetuates this process, but installing a metal roof is an environmentally conscious decision.

Because metal reflects heat, removing some of the burden from your AC, the reduction in power consumption means more sustainability. Generating power leads to more wastes being released into the environment, and a metal roof can help minimize this threat.

Finally, metal roofs often contain recycled material. Your investment will help support the conservation systems that keep our earth clean.

4. Better for Home Infrastructure

Generally speaking, a metal roof weighs far less than asphalt. Over time, a heavy roof can cause problems with your house’s infrastructure. This might lead to costly expenses that would have been avoided with a metal roof design.

Considering these factors, it’s no surprise that metal roofs are becoming so popular. If you’re interested in a smart investment that helps the environment, consider installing a metal roof.
