Life-span/Hardiness:

Metal roofs have one of the longest life-spans of any type of roof material. It’s not uncommon for them to last over 70 years if they’re installed properly. Not only that, but they are extremely hardy and only require minimal repairs. Metal roofs can withstand high winds, lightning, storms, snow, etc. They’re also impervious to mold, insects, and rot.

Class A Fire Rating:

Metal roofs receive a Class A Fire rating, the highest awarded. They can even improve the fire rating of other roof materials when they are installed over them.

Weight:

For all their durability and longevity, metal roofs are relatively lightweight. At 50-150 pounds, they’re heavier than shingles, but much lighter than tile.

Energy Efficiency:

Metal roofs reflect sunlight. Because of this, midday heat gain is reduced. This can save a lot on the cooling energy costs of your building.

 

These are just a few of the things to consider when weighing the option of metal roof material. Here at MAK Roofing and Construction, we offer metal roof installation alongside a host of other roofing services. For more information, please give us a call at (915) 691-0532.
