A metal roof cost is very comparable to a tile or cedar shake roof and is actually less expensive than a slate roof. However, due to the premium quality materials, a metal roof will be more expensive than a standard asphalt shingle roof.
So, while a metal roof might initially be a larger financial cost, this will quickly be viewed as an investment when you consider the minimal upkeep, your home’s improved resale value, energy efficiency, the 30-50yr warranty, and the peace of knowing that you will likely never have to worry about your roof again.
Metal roofs primary quality is their durability. They were designed for extreme weather conditions from heat, snow, hail, hurricane level winds, and torrential downpours. Metal roofs are a fan favorite for areas with heavy snow due to their ability to quickly shed snow, which helps protect your home’s structural integrity. Metal roofs also help in areas with wildfires since embers have no effect when landing on your metal roof. In short, there is no better option for safety and protection from all weather conditions than a metal roof.
Without knowing your roof’s details, pitch, size, and what material you are wanting to use, it is almost impossible to quote your expected costs. We would love the opportunity speak with you to walk you through all your questions and explain your options to give you all the information you need to make the best decision for your home or business.
We highly recommend that you have your roof inspected a minimum of once every two years and depending on your weather, you can easily have it inspected every year. Far too many homeowners and business owners wait until they find a leak or worse before they act. When looking at your property’s exterior try to notice cracked or warped shingles, excessive surface granules collecting in the downspouts or gutters, seemingly loose seams, & deteriorating flashings. Check your property’s interior for peeling or bubbling wallpaper, discolored boards or drywall, and any cracked paint.
It is hard to say. Some leaks are from loos flashing, a single section of your roof being damaged, or another local issue within the roof. In these situations, repairs can be fast and effective. However, larger roof issues or failures are almost always irreversible and will require a replacement. These failures can be from poor installation, improper materials, or a natural event.
There are a multitude of material options for your roof. Our team of trained professionals are here to talk you through the options, costs, benefits to each material, design, installation steps, and so on, so you get the perfect roof for your home or business.
The lifespan of your new roof will depend on many factors. Your local climate will have the biggest impact on your new roof’s lifespan. Your new roof should be built with these environmental conditions in mind. Most new roofs have a minimum 20yr lifespan, however, roof options like concrete tile, clay tile, slate, and metal can last much longer. Along with the proper materials and installation, regular inspections and maintenance will impact your roofs lifespan.
A quality roof repair can cost, but a poor-quality roof repair will cost even more. Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home and fixing it should not be taken lightly. Unless you are a trained craftsman and have a deep understanding of roofing systems, we highly suggest that you contact a trained professional (who have liability insurance and guarantee their work) near you.
