Metal roof benefits
Among all benefits of metal roofing, its lifespan is always listed as the top benefit. Compared to traditional asphalt shingles, metal is far more durable and long-lasting. If you compare modern metal roofing materials to other traditional roofing materials, like concrete tiles, you will find that metals are way lighter. Speed and easy installation are benefits of metal roofing that we can’t afford to ignore. Its length, width, size proportion, and the fact it’s lightweight make it easy to handle.
Regardless of the slope of the structure, a metal roof can still be installed. And the added benefit is installing metal roofs on a low slope is often less expensive to construct with fewer roofing material requirements than a steep slope. For those who live in rainy areas, this is one of the best benefits of installing metal roofs. The surface of the metal sheet is hard and slippery by nature which makes it hard for snow and water to make a grip.
The reason why wood and asphalt shingle roof have a shorter lifespan is that they are prone to mildew, moss, and fungus. But with metal, you are free from all those fungal attacks. The ability to sustain any kind of climate and season is one of the best benefits of metal roofing.
