What Are Some of the Benefits of Metal Roofing?
Most people these days are looking for ways to save money in the long run, especially when it comes to home improvements. One way to do that is to have a metal roof installed.
Have you ever stopped to think what a new metal roof could do for your home?
Metal roofs can last a century or more, give your home a contemporary look, and save you up to 40 % on cooling costs, significantly lowering your energy bills.
While metal roofing installation is more expensive up front, there are many advantages to this style of roofing and you will pay less in the long-run with this energy-efficient investment.
- When it comes to the price of a metal roof versus asphalt, a typical asphalt shingle roof will cost around $9,000. The Metal Roof Alliance reports metal roofs averaging at $16,500, although in 2014 a number of customers reported paying an average of $12, 236. If pricing is an issue for you, consider choosing a more cost-effective metal such as aluminum. Copper and zinc are two of the more expensive metals, but they aren’t required for a great metal roof. Our specialty is steel.
- Although most metal roof warranties only cover 50 years, they can easily last a lifetime, whereas asphalt roof generally need to be replaced about every 15-25 years.
- Another benefit of metal roofs is they require very little upkeep. You’ll save on maintenance costs, and you’ll never have to deal with shingles blowing off into your yard (or the neighbor’s)!
- Metal roofs are also exceptionally durable. A metal roof will stand up strong to bleak Minnesota winters as well as to wind, lightning, hail and other harsh elements.
Be sure to check with your MN roofing contractor regarding an installation warranty on your new investment. Some contractors provide that free of charge, while other roofing companies may charge up to $3,000. Even though that may seem steep, having that peace of mind and the guarantee of a new roof may be worth the extra money.
