When configured and installed by TAMINKA METAL ROOFING, metal roofing can last as long as fifty five years or more and, in most cases, requires very little maintenance over the course of its lifespan. Asphalt roofing, on the other hand, will typically need to be replaced every 10-15 years or less depending on the quality of material. So even though the initial cost of metal is usually higher than asphalt, metal roofing can actually end up saving you time and money in the long run. Plus most metal roofing products are offered with true lifetime warranties of 55+ years.
Homeowners who renovate their home with metal roofing are typically able to recoup an extremely high rate of the roof’s cost, 85.9% according to national averages, with homes in the Eastern states recouping up to 95.5%! Homes with a metal roof see, on average, up to 6% resale value gain over homes roofed with asphalt.
While your neighbors may re-roof their home many times, a high-quality metal roof will likely be the last roof you'll ever need. Resistant to cracking, shrinking and eroding, metal roofing systems can also withstand extreme weather conditions including heavy snow loads, hail storms, and wildfires.
Unlike asphalt roofs which require regular maintenance to replace broken or deteriorating shingles as well as moss and algae removal, metal roofing requires minimal upkeep.
Unlike asphalt or other roofing styles, a properly constructed metal roof can handle just about anything Mother Nature can throw at it. Metal roofing can protect your home against extreme temperatures, high winds, hail, marine air and even fire—all with minimal maintenance.
A properly installed quality metal roof is practically impervious to a wide-range of extreme climate conditions. Modern residential metal roofs will not warp, crack, rot, or rust and will last 55 years with little maintenance required..
Metal is one of the most energy efficient roofing materials available and can save your home up to 40% in air conditioning cost as well as provide excellent insulation during the winter. With a metal roofing system optimized for energy efficiency, you’ll enjoy long-term cost savings on your energy bills while reducing your environmental impact.
Myth – Metal Roofing Looks Generic
Many people think that all metal roofs look the same, but metal is actually one of the more versatile roofing materials available. Since metal is malleable, it can be transformed into different shapes. This means you can have a metal roof with a smooth, flat surface or one with a more dynamic look. Metal roofs can also be made to look like other, more traditional roofing styles.
Myth – Metal Roofing Is Loud
A lot of people are familiar with the loud noises that you can hear when it starts raining. The truth is that a metal roof can be just as quiet (or even quieter) than other materials, such as asphalt shingles.
Myth – Metal Roofing Is Only for Homes in Warm Climates
Many people are worried about getting a metal roof because the snow can cause the roof to buckle under the weight. However, metal roofs are actually a good option for homes in snowy areas because metal’s non-porous nature helps it shed snow a lot easier compared with other roofing materials. This means you also get to avoid having to deal with problems, such as ice dams and intense snow buildup.
Myth – Metal Roof Will Rust
One of the biggest misconceptions about metal roofing is that they are particularly vulnerable to rust. While this myth was actually true in the past, most roofing contractors today install metal roofs made of galvanized sheet metal or stainless steel. Furthermore, they can be covered with paint or other kinds of protective coating to further increase their resistance to rust damage.
