Metal Roofing Advantages
A metal roof is an excellent choice, whether you have a residential or commercial property. There are many benefits that they provide but the major ones are durability and energy efficiency. If you are considering replacing the roof on your house or building, the following are a few positive characteristics that make installing a metal roof an excellent option:
The energy efficiency of a metal roof is one important feature. It will significantly reduce your yearly energy expenses compared to an asphalt shingle roof. With a metal roof, you don’t have to turn on your heating and cooling systems nearly as often. You also should install extra insulation to take even more advantage of the energy efficiency provided by a metal roof.
Another major reason to select a metal roofing system is environmental friendliness. At the end of a metal roof’s long lifespan, it can be completely recycled. Therefore, you won’t need to worry about filling up a landfill with waste from your old roof when it is taken off.
Clearly, if you can afford to make the investment, it is an easy choice to upgrade to installing a metal roof. Over the long run, you’ll save lots of money and will provide the best protection for the occupants and your property. They also come with comprehensive, long warranties to justify your choice even more.
Investing In Your Business – Since a metal roof lasts for such a long time as long as it is properly maintained, it is a great investment to make. A metal roofing system is able to withstand serious weather elements, including heavy snow, hail, high wind, or heavy rainfall. It lasts 2 to 3 times longer than other options. Therefore, the extra expense is well worth it, and why you say it is truly investing in your business.
Benefits of Commercial Metal Roof Restoration
There is lots of metal roofing installed on properties across the country already. With more being added every year as it becomes more popular and well-known, it is becoming one of the most popular types of roofing options for both property managers and owners.
However, if you don’t properly maintain a metal roof, then you will experience problems and issues that may turn into costly repairs, just like you would with any other type of roofing system.
The issue that you will most commonly run into with a metal roof is mainly the result of poor maintenance or installation – panels that blow off in windy conditions, rust due to being directly exposed to the elements, pooling or ponding of water, leaks from tears in the roof, and punctures caused by foot traffic.
Metal Roof Restoration is a durable and cost-effective solution as opposed to having to replace your roof.
When you have problems with a metal roof, replacing it tends to be the first thing that comes to mind. However, replacing a roof is an expensive and major decision. You should consider the following things before you go ahead and replace your roof:
1. Replacing the roof will take up lots of your company’s valuable time. It can be a very overwhelming task when you consider everything that goes into replacing a roof – new insulation, new metal panes, tearing off all of the roofing materials. That can all take a lot of time, and interrupt your business’s normal operations until the project is done.
2. While your roof is being replaced, your inventory and the interior of your building will be exposed to weather elements. The old material will need to be torn off and new panels will have to be installed. That will leave your building exposed while this is being done. The contents of your building could end up being compromised unless you can provide sufficient cover or shelter for them. If you have expensive technological components or have any high-security concerns, it could be expensive along with the interruption to your business.
3. A Metal Roof Restoration costs a lot less than a Roof Replacement. We have already discussed many of the roof replacement costs – tear-off costs, materials, labor costs, and landfill and disposal charges. You can save up to 50% when you go with a metal roof restoration compared to a metal roof replacement.
4. There are no guarantees that if you replace the roof that the same exact problems won’t show up in the future. Since an old metal roof and new metal roof have basically the same features, you might as well save inconvenience and money and restore your old one instead.
