Metal Roofing in Fort Lauderdale
One of the fastest growing segments of the roofing industry, metal roofing is increasing in popularity everywhere because of its many positive qualities – it is long lasting, energy efficient, and safer than other types of roofs. This also means that in some areas, metal roofing can decrease the homeowner’s insurance premiums significantly.
Elegance and beauty are not qualities that people are accustomed to attributing to metal roofs, but over the years, technology has combined what has always been superior durability with modern elegance and beauty because of the amazing ability to replicate such roofing styles as Spanish tile, wood shake and slate. Architectural designs also include standing seam and stone coated metal roofs.
While the initial investment is higher, metal roofing saves money in the long run. What’s more, metal can be made to look like virtually any roofing materials. Unlike other types of roofing materials, such as asphalt, metal roofing does not absorb heat; it reflects heat, making it extremely energy efficient. In addition, metal roofing is extremely wind resistant, does not crack, peal, break or rot. It is fire resistant, and self-ventilating. Metal roofing is amazingly lightweight, and does not stain or leak. It will last a lifetime and requires virtually no maintenance.
There are many myths about metal roofing that need to be dispelled. For example, metal roofing doesn’t increase the likelihood of lighting striking your home. It actually disperses the energy throughout the structure. It isn’t noisy because it is installed with solid sheathing, which actually silences rain, hail and other bad weather. The coatings in metal roofing prevent rusting and accept long-lasting paint colors. Providing a 150 mph wind rating, it doesn’t dent.
