Choosing a roof for your home is an important and complex decision, an investment that you want to ensure is done right the first time around. Because when it comes to protecting your family, belongings and home, you don’t want to risk taking shortcuts. But where do you start with such an important decision? The first point of call is to decide the type of material you want to use for your roof. And with a range of options from tiles to metal, and their corresponding pros and cons, it’s no surprise that roof selection can be a bit of a minefield. Thankfully, roofing experts such as Allied Home Improvements can help you select the right roof for your home.
In this blog we’ll take a closer look at the advantages of metal roofs, to help you with your selection process.
Choosing the metal
One of the main advantages of choosing a metal roof for your home is that you can select from the various types of metals on the market which include aluminium, copper, zinc, tin, and galvanised steel. Each of these materials varies in quality, pricing, durability and lifespan, so you have the flexibility to choose a metal which suits your needs and budget.
Throughout the planning process, you can also customise your roof to your liking. This will ensure a finished product you’ll love.
As mentioned earlier, metal roofs are incredibly durable. And once installed, you won’t have to worry about leaks, and corrosion for years to come. In fact, depending on which material you choose, a metal roof can last up to 70 years! This is much longer than the lifespan of asphalt roofs which need to be changed or repaired, on average, every 15 years.
Besides, with such a significant investment, you might as well get a roof that lasts for a long time!
Another advantage of metal roofs is that they are highly efficient in terms of energy. By reflecting the heat from the sun, they help to keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter. This means you’ll save money on electricity used to cool and heat your house- a decision your bank balance will thank you for!
Ensuring the safety of your family is incredibly important so you should choose a roof which will protect them from Australia’s harsh climate. It may come as a surprise, but one of the main advantages of metal roofs is their fire resistant quality so you’ll be protected, even if lightning strikes!
