When choosing a roofing material for your home, the options on the market may make the choice seem overwhelming. Among the different types of roofing used in building today, metal is becoming an increasingly popular choice for its durability and style.
Metal is a strong and long lasting roofing option for both residential and commercial buildings. In fact, most homeowners who choose to install a metal roof on their home will never have to worry about replacing it. This ability to withstand the elements and protect homes from damaging rain and weather is what makes it stand out among the other types of roofing materials.
High end quality metal roofs such as those installed by Mitchell Roofing Company LLC., can carry a 50 to 60 year lifespan. Whether field locked standing seam or aluminum shingles, these metal roofs bring peace of mind to homeowners who otherwise may worry about the cost of replacing their roofs down the road.
Not only can metal roofs withstand high force winds, blazing hot sun rays, and downpouring rain, they will remain attractive and weatherproof for longer than many homeowners will have their homes. Metal roofs retain their original colors without fading and rusting, showing little to no signs of wear and tear.
An added benefit to the metal roof is that unlike other materials, it is 100% unaffected by the growth of fungus, mildew, and moss. These common disruptors can cause extensive damage and continual maintenance issues for roofing materials, especially in areas prone to shade and dampness such as those that are heavily wooded.
If your home is located in a heavily wooded area, you may also be sharing your outdoor spaces with raccoons and rodents and other animals that may find your home an attractive place to nest and live. These potential pests and bugs are responsible for many roof problems such as shingle detachment which can destroy plywood.
Metal roofs fend off these dangers as pests are unable to penetrate the surfaces of your roof. Other dangers are also lessened with metal roofing as it is fire resistant, can tolerate hail storms, and is able to withstand wind speeds up to 110 miles per hour, which means that most metal roofs meet or exceed the requirements of the strictest building codes in the U.S.
