Choosing a roof for your home is an important decision. Whether interested in new home construction or a replacement roof for an existing home, a metal roof can be the best choice for many Southern Oregon residents. Investing wisely in the roof over your head will give you a lifetime of comfort and peace of mind.
A metal roof involves a larger upfront cost when compared to traditional options such as asphalt shingles. Yet, the return on your investment will be well worth the original cost. A metal roof is extremely durable and will likely last as long as you own your home.
The average lifespan for a metal roof is 40-70 years compared to an asphalt roof which will last 12-20 years before needing a replacement. Metal roofs owe their durability to a rust-proof Kynar coating and the unique construction that allows this lightweight material to stand up to the elements.
Most metal roofing will withstand high wind gusts up 140 miles per hour. They also are better able to resist heat and fire and snow than asphalt products. Choosing a metal roof is a wise choice if you live in a heavily wooded area since they are moss and fungus resistant.
Metal’s reflective properties mean that your roof is more energy efficient, and this can result in up to a 25 % reduction in heating costs. Any heat absorbed during the day is quickly released at night.
Environmentally conscious Oregon residents will appreciate the fact that a metal roof does not contain any petroleum products. By choosing this roof style you lessen the amount of asphalt shingles in the landfill. Metal roofing contains at least 25% recycled material and is 100% recyclable.
