Each day, more and more Michigan homes and properties are making the necessary upgrade from the outdated and ineffective asphalt roof option. Read more about why metal roofing is a better option than asphalt and other materials here. Below we focus on the benefits of metal roofing and why you should choose it for your home.
Metal roofing in both light and dark colors reflects heat effectively to reduce cooling loads in the summer and insulate homes during the winter. This can help to lower energy bills.
The secret to metal roofing’s energy savings is in its variety of finishes. A highly reflective and highly emissive painted or granular-coated metal roof is optimal for reducing energy consumption and can actually re-emit up to 90% of absorbed solar radiation.
Installing a metal roof can also help the environment in other ways, too. Conventional roofing products, including asphalt shingles, contribute an estimated 20 billion pounds of waste to U.S. landfills annually, whereas metal roofs can often be installed over an existing roof, eliminating the cost and eco-impact of tear-off and disposal.
Longevity is one of the top reasons consumers report choosing metal roofing for their homes.metal roofing can last as long as fifty years or more, requiring very little maintenance and looking beautiful all the while.
But it isn’t just the dependability that people love about long-living metal roofing; it’s the low life cycle cost. Few homeowners realize until after the fact but metal roofing can actually cost as little or less than asphalt roofing.
Since asphalt roofing needs to be replaced 2 – 4 times as often as metal roofing, you really need to multiply not only the initial cost of asphalt roofing materials but also the cost of asphalt roof repairs and re-installation man hours to compare to the typical “once-a-lifetime” metal roofing installation.
