While metal roofing has more commonly been found on commercial roofs in the past, it is quickly becoming a material of choice for residential roofs as well. At A. Clark Roofing & Siding LP., our Edmonton roofing contractors have installed modern metal roofing systems for homeowners throughout Alberta. Let’s take a look at why this is becoming such a popular roofing option.
What is Metal Roofing?
As the name suggests, metal roofing is a roofing system made out of metal. There are many different types of metal roofing offered by our Edmonton roofers, including steel, aluminum, copper, stainless steel, and alloy metals. Metal roofing can be installed as panels, as tiles, or as standing-seam systems.
Advantages of Metal Roofs for Edmonton
Many homeowners are choosing metal roofs because of the numerous advantages that they have to offer, especially compared to other materials. These advantages include:
Metal is a highly energy-efficient roofing material that can bring down your summer cooling costs by 30% or more. Its reflective properties allow it to reflect away sunrays which would otherwise heat your home. Certain finishes can be used to increase its reflectivity even more.
The energy efficiency of a metal roof helps to make it one of the more environmentally friendly roofing options as well. Additionally, metal roofs often contain recycled material and a metal roof is 100% recyclable at the end of its usable life.
Metal roofs are incredibly strong and a great choice for Edmonton’s extreme weather conditions, such as strong winds, hail, and heavy snowfall. They are also resistant to mould and mildew, and will not warp or buckle due to temperature extremes.
Metal roofs are resistant to catching on fire, making them among the safest types of roofing systems. A strong wind resistance also makes it less likely that a piece of your roof will tear off and pose an injury hazard.
Because metal roofs are so durable, they can last for a very long time before needing to be replaced. If you keep your roof well maintained and call for roof repair in Edmonton when you need it, your new metal roof can last for more than 40 years.
Finally, we understand that a homeowner’s choice of roofing material will depend on how the material looks on their home. Metal is a very attractive choice that comes in a wide array of styles and finishes, making it a fantastic complement to your home’s exterior and enhancing your curb appeal.
