1. It’s Long Lasting
A metal roof can last 30 to 50 years or more with little maintenance. You can repaint your roof instead of replacing it, saving greatly on costs.
2. It’s Energy Efficient
A study discovered that metal roofing saves energy by 40% in the summer and 15% in winter. They reflect heat away from your building instead of trapping it. At Giant Siding and Windows, we offer factory-certified roofing installation to help you save energy–and money!
3. It’s Easy and Speedy to Install
Most metal roofs come in single-section wide panels that are easy to install. Their light weight also makes them easy to handle.
4. It’s Fire-Resistant
Metal roofing is fire-resistant, making it perfect if you live in areas at high risk of wildfires. It is considered a Class A material as it offers superior fire protection.
5. It’s Moss and Fungal Proof
With a metal roof, you are free from fungal and moss attacks. Metal roofing does not hold water, making it resistant to mildew, moss, and fungus growth. (It also protects your home from pests, as they’re unable to break through the material!)
6. It Allows Minimum Roof Pitch
Metal roofing can be installed regardless of the structure’s slope. At Giant Siding and Windows, we have experienced experts that install metal roofing to structures of all forms.
7. It’s Environmentally Friendly
Most metal roofing has 25-30% of recycled materials. It’s also recyclable after removal, unlike traditional asphalt shingles. This makes it sustainable as it lowers environmental pollution.
8. It’s Lightweight
Metal sheets are very light compared to other modern roofing materials. They are one-third the weight of asphalt shingle roofing. At Giant Sliding and Windows, we install light and quality metal roofing.
9. It Offers Maximum Rain and Snow Shedding
The metal roofing surface is slippery, making it hard for water and snow to grip. Snow easily comes off, reducing the weight on your home.
10. It’s Resistant to Extreme Winds
Metal roofs are resistant to extreme winds and offer protection from flying debris. They are perfect if you live in an area with rampant storms.
