Installation | Repair | Maintenance
Metal roofs are becoming more popular by the day. Like any other roofing material, metal roofing has its advantages and disadvantages. Metal roofing is most seen in the US in commercial and industrial properties but it can certainly be installed in a residential property as well. Ocean roofing LLC has been installing metal roofing systems for many years now and we got the know-how locked down so we can provide you with an effective and efficient metal roofing installation for your property.
Why should you consider metal roofing?
Metal roofing should be considered for your property because of its many advantages, some of these advantages are:
According to recent studies, a metal roofing system life expectancy can be up to 100 years with the proper maintenance. It is so durable, that most metal roofing providers offer a warranty of up to 50 years. Taking that into consideration, if you do the math a metal roofing, although the initial investment is higher, turn up to be less expensive than shingle roofing because you will only have to do a roofing investment one or twice in a life time…while shingle roofing’s life expectancy is only of 15 to 20 years with the right maintenance program.
Because of its durability metal roofing requires low maintenance, this does not mean that you shouldn’t get maintenance on your roofing system; we encourage you to give it its proper maintenance to avoid spending more money in future third party damages. One of the things that could happen in regard to maintenance is that the metal roofing loses its shine; but that an easy fix with a repainting coating job that will also assure that no leak surprises will happen in the near future.
Wind & Fire Resistance
Fire resistance is very important in windy weathers, a little spark can be the difference between a safe home and a tragedy. While some roofs may light up and start fires with just a spark, metal roofing is not the case.
Since metal roofs feature interlock panels, this makes it safe for windy atmospheres; its wind resistance is superior than other roofing materials.
Energy efficiency is one of the many great characteristics of metal roofing, according to recent studies metal roofing can save you up to 20% in summer cooling costs.
Lightweight translates into efficiency, it is always better to have a lightweight and durable stricture than a heavy one. Metal roofing provides just this; a lightweight and an everlasting high*quality roofing system.
Like any other material, metal roofing also has its disadvantages. You should, too, consider the cons before making a final decision. The most notable disadvantages are:
The installation process is a little harder in comparison to other roofing materials. This shouldn’t be a disadvantage if you hire Ocean Roofing LLC because our 20 years of experience has allowed for us to be more efficient and effective on metal roofing installations.
Metal roofing systems are very noisy when it rains; you can install an insulation system to make it sound proof and this will also help the energy efficiency even more.
Higher Initial Investment
While at the end of the road this is actually an advantage, we must set it in this list. The initial cost is usually higher than most roofing materials but in the long run, because of its durability and life expectancy, you end up saving money. If initial budget is a factor, then metal roofing is definitely a huge disadvantage when considering this material type.
