If it is time to replace the shingles on your roof, consider switching to a metal roof rather than simply replacing the traditional shingles. Metal roofs are designed to last a long time and will give your home a very unique look. The guide below walks you through a few reasons why a metal roof may be a better option for your home than shingles.
Metal Roofs Are Available in Many Colors
Shingles are available in many different shades of burgundy, black, gray, and brown. Metal roofs, however, are available in just about any color you can imagine. The panels can easily be painted to any color you choose to ensure you can create the exact look you want to create. When you order the metal panels, it is important to express what color you are interested in to find out if they have them readily available or if they will have to be custom made for you. Custom made metal panels can take a little bit longer to get because they have to be painted and the paint has to be dried before they can be brought to your home.
Metal Roofs Are Easy to Install
Metal roofs are installed in large panels. The panels cover a lot of area so that the roof can be covered in a very short period of time. The panels fit together perfectly so there will be no gaps between them. You need to let professional roofers handle the installation of the panels though to ensure that they are installed properly. A professional roofer should be able to easily fit the panels together within a day or two, depending on the size of your roof.
Metal Roofs Last a Very Long Time
Metal roofs are designed to last a very long time. They can stand up to the elements and often only need to be repainted in order to maintain them. If anything falls on them, they may dent, which could cause them to rust, so be sure to have them touched up if you start to notice any dents in them, as soon as you can.
If you are considering switching from shingles to a metal roof, it is best to hire a contractor, such as those at Pyramid Roofing Inc, before you buy the metal panels. They will be able to tell you how many panels you need to ensure that every inch of the roof is covered properly.
Hello, I'm Erica. Welcome to my site about roofing services. We moved into a home in the middle of a stormy country. Although the roof was nice when we moved in, the constant barrage of storms quickly changed its construction. The shingles flew off and flashing unwound until the roof looked awful and started to leak. At that point, we knew we needed to act fast. Luckily, with one call to a roofer, we scheduled the repairs needed to keep it in great shape, even through future storms. I will use this site to talk more about how our roof was repaired and storm proofed.
