5 Reasons to be Thankful for a Metal Roof

With Thanksgiving just a few days away, it’s time to start reflecting on what we’re thankful for. The company of friends, family, and all of our loved ones. But what about your home? Are there things you’re thankful for with regards to your home? In the spirit of the season, why don’t we take a moment and give our faithful metal roofs a few hearty thank yous?

1) Be Thankful for a Durable Metal Roof

Thank you, metal roof for being the most durable, robust roofing material on the market. We don’t know what we would do without you. You are strong and impervious to thermal expansions and contractions. Seaside residents love you because you can withstand up to 140 mph of aggressive coastal winds and endure heavy precipitation without a flinch.

2) Be Thankful for a Metal Roof that Lives Forever

It’s so great to have a roof that demonstrates exceptional durability as well as longevity. When compared to its asphalt shingle counterpart, a metal roof, according to Metal Roofing Systems, “can easily last two to three times longer than asphalt, while also providing superior energy efficiency, durability, reliability, and often significant energy savings.” In fact, homeowners can invest in a metal roof and enjoy its 50 years of amazing performance with virtually no upkeep. This is why some have also gone so far to call metal roofs “the forever roof” or “the last roof you’ll ever buy.”

3) Be Thankful for an Efficient Metal Roof

With cost of living on the rise, homeowners are striving to pursue a quality life without busting their checkbooks. Thanks to metal roof’s excellent performance, homeowners can now save from their cooling and heating costs year-round. As Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Buildings Technology Center reported in one of its studies, metal roofs demonstrate high solar reflectivity and emissivity. They can greatly mitigate urban heat island effects and save you as much as 40% in cooling costs.

4) Be Thankful for a Green Metal Roof

Those of us who care about the environment are greatly indebted to metal roof’s commitment to Mother Earth. Depending on the company and the material they use for metal roof construction, your typical metal roof are made of 25% to 95% recycled content. Whereas 20 billion pounds of shingle tear-off end up in the landfill per year, your faithful metal roof can be recycled completely and used all over again.

5) Be Thankful for a Gorgeous Metal Roof

Your roof contributes greatly to your overall exterior aesthetics. While other roofing materials may limit you to certain styles or colors, metal roofs offer hundreds of attractive colors that can be customized to emulate texture of any roofing material on the market. Additionally, metal roofs can easily accommodate both high and low pitch roofs. Standing seam metal roofs, for example, deliver a contemporary feel with its graceful vertical panels, while slate metal roofs give your home a classic, upscale appearance. You can also be witty and have wave-like shapes running right across your roof with curved metal roofing. Like we said, there are many things to be thankful for when it comes to your home–especially, your metal roof.
