Frisco Roofing Contractor talks about metal roofing.
The recent weather within the metroplex is causing some concern among homeowners looking to prevent damage to their homes. High winds and heavy rain can cause all sorts of issues to old roofs that have not been adequately maintained. Today, many homes are equipped with asphalt shingles, and while asphalt is sufficient for a lot of our clients, some customers are asking for even more protection. Metal roofing is our recommended choice for superior protection against damaging weather.
Metal roofing not only offers better protection against harsh weather conditions than asphalt, but it also turns out to be more economical in the long term. Since metal takes much longer to decompose, metal roofs last up to two to three times longer than asphalt roofs, and even longer when compared to wood. This means much less money spent on repairs throughout the life of your home. Also, thanks to the economic stimulus package, if you upgrade to a qualifying metal roof before December 31, 2010, you may be eligible for a 30% tax credit on the material costs, up to $1,500 for each household.
Metal roofing also offers superior environmental advantages. The slower decomposition rate means that less roofing material will end up in the landfill. Think about it: asphalt shingles contribute about 1.36 billion pounds of waste to landfills each and every year (according to the National Association of Homebuilders). In contrast, metal roofs are absolutely recycable at the end of its life.
In short, metal roofing offers:
- Superior protection against harsh weather conditions
- Less environmental impact
- More money in your pocket over the long term
- Peace of mind due to better stability
