Initially, Huntsville metal roofing was used primarily for commercial applications. If it was used on residential property, it was usually for structures like sheds or barns. Then homeowners began to get more savvy and realize just how many benefits there were to having this type of roofing for the house. By working with our experts here at ACM Pros Pressure Washing, you can also feel good knowing that we can provide you with the information that you need to make the best choice for your house and your family.
Probably the number one selling point for metal roofing is the extended lifespan, when compared to other roofs. The average lifespan of a metal roof, with proper care and maintenance, is 50 years! They have been known to last as long as 70 years, in some situations. Either way, it means not having to think about replacement for your roof in 20 years, like with asphalt shingles.
Metal roofing is also ideal because it provides superior protection but is lightweight. It is also resistant to fire and does well with heat conduction without passing that on through the house and causing the cooling bills to soar sky high. Because the surface is hard and slick, this also makes it ideal for shedding rain and snow. This is important here in Huntsville where residential roofs each year collapse due to too much snow buildup. So what about any disadvantages to option for metal?
The main drawback is the upfront cost; it costs more upfront because you get durability and longevity which is good value. This type of rooftop system can also get dented from things like hail which mostly just looks unsightly. Of course there is also the noise factor which is actually, for some people, a benefit. Some people love the sound of rain falling on a metal roof while others feel the amplification is simply too much.
