When it comes to looking after your home it’s important to make investments that will benefit you in more ways than one. For appliances like refrigerators you want something that’s energy efficient, long lasting, and has a range of cooling features. The same can also be said for the larger, more central elements of your home too – like roofing.
One of the first things that passers-by, neighbours and family will see is your roof, making it a fashion statement. Beyond that, here are 6 valuable reasons why you should consider investing in a metal roof.
1. A Roof that Lasts a Lifetime
Roofs may be one of the largest parts of your home, but that doesn’t always make them the longest lasting. In fact, you can expect many traditional roofs, like asphalt varieties, to last you no more than 20 years. When you’re buying your home for a lifetime, that’s not a very long time. Metal roofs are much more durable though, and you can expect them to last closer to 70 years, typically with a minimum of 40. At the very least, this means you’ve doubled your investment.
2. Energy Efficiency
One of the major and continuous costs you will have in your home is heating and cooling. In places like South East Queensland, your air-conditioning sometimes has to work overtime, while in other parts of the country the heater gets a workout. Metal roofing not only reflects heat – giving your air-con less work to do – it also works wonders in the cold when coupled with roofing insulation. This means continuous savings and more money in the household budget.
3. Easy Installation
Metal roofing is some of the easiest to install. This prevents the need to tear all those roof tiles off your roof, making it a much cheaper and easier solution. Having said that, all roof fittings – including metal ones – should always be left to a professional to correctly install.
4. Design Options for Everyone
When people think of metals they probably think of the stock standard greys and silvers, and that’s understandable. The truth is though; modern metal roofing comes in 20 different colours. When you choose a roof restoration expert who uses Colorbond’s brilliant range, you’re sure to end up with a roof that matches your style.
5. Low Maintenance Guarantee
How much maintenance does your roof need? Maybe it needs re-shingling, or maybe the chipped and cracked tiles need replacing. When you choose metal roofing, you won’t have any of these problems. In fact, many metal roofs require no maintenance at all, while most only need minimal touch ups after many years of service.
6. Go Green with Roofing
When we say green we’re not talking about colour, although with the Colorbond range that’s an option too. What we are referring to is eco-friendliness, and metal roofing is a leader in this field. There are so few resources involved in metal roof manufacturing, with up to 60% of the materials are made from recycled content.
