The Many Advantages of Metal Roofs
20 Sep 2019
In South Florida, clay and concrete tile dominate the rooftop landscape. But for those who’ve spotted metal roofs in their travels, the question naturally occurs: Why go with metal?
As a leading supplier and installer of metal roofs in Plantation, Davie, and all over Broward and Palm Beach County, Florida, Rainbow Roofing Solutions has the cut-to-the-chase answers:
Life Expectancy: Metal roofs last longer than shingles and tile roofs with a lifespan of up to 50 years. Most have long-term Manufacturer Warranties that protect you for a significant number of years.
Style Variety: Metal roofing comes in a wide array of styles and colors. It can mirror other types of roofing such as tile while offering greater durability. That’s a curb appeal and resale value win-win.
Fire and Weather Resistant: As a non-combustible material, metal isn’t a fire risk like other roofing materials. It also holds up better in heavy rain, hail, extreme temperatures, and high winds events such as Hurricanes.
Lightweight: Since it is much lighter than clay or concrete tile, metal roofs ease the stress on a home or commercial building’s structure. Heavier materials may require structural reinforcements or repairs, which can raise costs significantly.
Low to No Maintenance: Along with its weather-resistant qualities, metal roofs deter the growth of mold and mildew, resulting in a greatly reduced need for maintenance.
Why metal roofing? From durable, proven performance to attractive modern design, the pluses for South Florida home and business owners are many. Rainbow Roofing Solutions can introduce you to metal’s many benefits and other energy- and cost-efficient options well suited to our sub-tropical climate conditions.
