If you are considering a metal roof for your home, you have come to the right place. Metal roofing is becoming more and more popular, especially in the Northwest. In the past decade, metal roofing has grown to take 10% share of the residential roofing market, and an estimated 20% of all commercial roofs are metal.
Metal roofing has a far superior performance and is the perfect choice for our climate compared to to other roofing materials. Metal roofs resist rain like the best umbrella you’ve ever had. By creating a unique watertight membrane over your home, professionally installed metal roofs leave zero opportunity for rain to get in. They are also far more resistant to wind, snow, ice and fire than other roofing materials, and are less susceptible to moss, mildew and pests such as termites and carpenter ants.
If you’re like many people in our area, you’ll also be happy to hear that metal is the most eco-friendly choice you can make in roofing. The metal we use, made locally by Taylor Metal Products, can be manufactured with 90% recycled material, so it won’t deplete our forests or oil reserves, and it is 100% recyclable so it won’t add to landfills. Additionally, the reflective nature of metal will keep your home cooler in the summer and help reduce your energy bills.
As if that’s not enough to get you on the metal roofing bandwagon, metal roofs are actually less expensive over their lifetime than other roofs because metal roofs generally last two to four times longer than a traditional roof: about 40 years. With other roofing materials you would have to replace a composition roof twice at the very least– their cost is significantly less than other materials. We’re talking about a quarter of the cost in some cases.
