Are you considering replacing your roof? Before you make a decision, be sure to explore all options – including metal. There are many advantages of metal roofing. In recent years, metal roofing has become increasingly popular with Florida homeowners.
Will a Metal Roof Rust?
Metal roofing systems are coated with a rust-resistant finish which includes zinc. Zinc (or a combination of zinc and aluminum) is used as a shield to prevent the metal from oxidizing and, in turn, corroding and/or rusting. The zinc is bonded to the metal during the manufacturing process, so there is no need to worry about it wearing off. The roofing is then painted with a specialized paint that resists wear-and-tear from weather. (Stone-coated metal roof tiles are the epitome of durability and longevity)
You can rest assured knowing that when installed properly by a professional contractor, your new metal roofing system can last for 50 years- that’s up to four times longer than a traditional asphalt roof!
Other Benefits of a Metal Roofing System
Though other types of roofing (shingle, tile, flat, green, etc.) are effective as well, the advantages of metal roofing are endless:
- True energy efficiency – our roofs have coatings that reflect the sun off your home and in turn reduce the amount of heat that enters. When your home’s central air isn’t competing with heat, it doesn’t have to work as hard to keep your home at a comfortable temperature.
- Lower insurance rates – Many insurance companies offer lower insurance premiums to homeowners who have a metal roofing system on their home.
- Color variety – Homeowners are often forced to choose a color they may not like or does not match their exterior decor when they work with a specific roofing type. Our metal roofing systems are available in a variety of colors and styles that are sure to suit your tastes
- Weather resistance – Heavy rain, hail, high winds, and extreme heat are just a few conditions that your new metal roof will be able to endure.
