#6: Why Are Metal Roofs The Best Decision?

Metal Roofing

This is the 6th installment of “Ten Things About Roofing You May Not Know!which you can download as a free eBook.

A metal roof might last longer than your house! It might sound crazy, but it’s true. In 1884, the aluminum cap was installed on the Washington Monument – and it’s still there to this day!

Metal roofs are…

…a premium product. There have many advantages, but they do come at a premium price. Costs will vary depending on the type of metal used and other factors. 10 Things About Roofing You May Not KnowWest Coast FL Enterprises and Collier County Roofing can give you an estimate if you’re interested in a high-quality metal roof.

Here’s why you should be interested: Metal roofs are simply the best. Obviously they’re tough and incredibly wind resistant. (Check with your home insurance company about how it will reduce your rate!) But you may also be surprised that a metal roof is energy efficient as well. The reflective surface of a metal roof will bounce sunlight away, thereby reducing the heat that enters your home. During the Florida summer, this can make a huge dent in your energy bill. You can enjoy even more money in your pocket if you buy metal roofing with an Energy Star label.

Florida owners should be aware that metal roof manufacturers require the washing of metal roofing and flashings if your home is located within a half mile of salt water. Salty air is extremely detrimental to metal roofing – even aluminum. So, if your roof is within that parameter, you should seriously consider at least an annual wash.
