Metal has long been used for commercial and industrial roofing applications. But over the past decade, the popularity of residential metal roofing in NJ has surged — as it has in most areas of the country. Let’s look a closer look at the benefits of a metal roof for your home.
- Longevity. Metal roofing has proven itself to be one of the most durable roofing materials around. While the average lifespan of traditional asphalt shingles is 20-25 years, metal far outlasts that, providing more than 50 years of low-maintenance service.
- Weather resistance. Metal is extremely weather-resistant, remaining uncompromised even in wind-driven rain of over 110 miles per hour. It won’t rot, corrode or dry out in the hot sun.
- Curb appeal. Metal roofing comes in a huge range of colors and designs to enhance your home’s curb appeal. And because metal won’t fade, chip or rust, the beauty and value of your roof will last for decades.
- Efficiency. Today’s metal roofing systems are treated with special coatings to enhance efficiency. These roofs reflect a high percentage of the sun’s rays, and quickly release the heat that’s absorbed, therefore reducing the need for air conditioning. Many homeowners have reported saving 20% or more on their utility costs due to metal roofing.
