By initially investing in a metal roofing service, you’re already taking a substantial step toward saving money. The cost of installation for metal shingles is about 20% cheaper than the cost of installing standing seam because metal shingles are easier and faster to install.
Metal roofs are not only fire-resistant, but they also offer longevity — a quality any homebuyer or homeowner looks for in a place to call home. You’ll be thankful that metal roofing offers sturdiness when considering that on average, homeowners will spend between 1% and 4% of a home’s value annually on maintenance and repairs, which tend to increase as the house ages. For a $200,000 home, that’s at least $2,000 in repairs annually. When installed by a credible commercial roofing company, metal roofs are proven to last over 30 years with minimal maintenance. This is essential because you want to protect the money you’ve invested in building a home of your own. No matter what region you live in, metal roofing will stand tough against high winds, snow, and heavy rain.
If you’ve recently made the transition from an apartment to a house, you’ve probably noticed an overall increase in your utility bills. However, because metal reflects heat from the sun, a metal roof can reduce the energy costs associated with cooling the interior of a structure up to 20% and reduce peak-cooling demand by up to 15%. In addition, you could qualify for tax credits.
In an increasingly environmentally conscious world, find comfort in the fact that metal roofs are 100% recyclable at the end of a long, useful life. If you’re ready to save some money, it’s time to call a commercial roofing service to install your metal roof.
