Know the benefits of metal roofs

As with any significant purchase, it’s important to carefully consider the kind of roof your home or business needs, and the benefits and pitfalls of that choice.

Most people are aware that metal roofs – if that’s the roofing type you’re looking at – can last seemingly forever; up to 40-70 years. Compared to asphalt roofs which last about 12-20 years, that is forever. Metal roofs also have a reputation of being durable safe, which means they need almost no maintenance and they won’t spark and burst into flames.

Metal roofs are also energy efficient and environmentally friendly, so you can save money in other areas of home-ownership as well.

Consider the cons

Despite their many advantages, metal roofs have some potential drawbacks.

First, metal roofs initially are not cheap; they can be nearly three times more expensive than a shingle roof. Investing in a metal roof for your Omaha home or business only makes sense if you plan on staying in your home for as long as the metal roof lasts.

Second, metal roofs can be noisy, especially during a heavy rain or hailstorm. Adding more insulation during installation usually solves this problem, but that may increase costs.

There are also some other items to consider before getting a metal roof put on your home. Metal roofs that are added as panels can expand and contract in certain kinds of weather, which can cause a problem if the roof was not properly installed. If a repair is necessary on your metal roof, you could run the risk of a color mismatch. Also because of improper installation, if water accumulates anywhere on the roof, it can eventually cause serious damage. Low-grade metals may also be thinner and less durable. Some metals rust in certain climates or dent more easily than others during hailstorms or installation.
