Strong Metal Roofs

As the world has witnessed earthquakes with horrific devastation--mostly on populations that don't use steel in their building construction--it is tough to argue that a metal roof wouldn't be the best way to provide strength and security to your home.

Metal Roofing Material Protects Against the Elements

  • Earth If you live in an area prone to earthquakes, steel yourself. You never know when the big one is coming. In Haiti, the steel rebar--in the few places where they had used any--was of such a low-grade it could be bent manually. It makes one think of a pipe cleaner. Proper use of the material would have saved thousands of lives.
  • Wind As the weather changes, so do advancements in building materials and their reliability. Steel roofs are one of the best ways to keep out wind, rain, sleet and snow while insulating your home for efficient heating and cooling systems. Light in color, steel roofs reflect heat and can keep your attic and upper floors breezy cool in the summer.
  • Fire Metal roofs are fire resistant! This is one of, if not the, most compelling reasons to consider a steel roof. No more watering down your shake shingles on the Fourth of July for fear that one floating ember could lead to flames devouring your home.

Beyond the safety issues, a metal roof retains an estimated 95 percent resale value that you can recoup on the sale of your home.

And a metal roof is eco-friendly; metal roofs are 100 percent recyclable and last fifty years or more compared to a typical asphalt shingle roof which might last seventeen years or so. They can be manufactured in panels or to look like shingles.

So consider a metal roof to battle the elements, save the planet and protect your home and its most valuable contents--your family.
