Metal roofing in New York
 is popular in residential as well as commercial buildings. This is because metal roofing has many benefits. Residential metal roofing can cut costs on energy bills and homeowners’ insurance premiums.

Here are some reasons to choose metal tile roofing in New York:

 

  • Good Investment: There is no doubt that the initial cost for a metal roof is higher than most other roofing materials. The benefit is that a metal roof can last a lifetime, whereas materials like asphalt require reroofing every 10 to 20 years. A metal roof can also increase the resale value of your home.

  • Long Warranties: You can get a manufacturer’s warranty of 30 to 50 years. You can also get a workmanship warranty from the installer.

     

  • Light Weight: A major cause of damage to other type of roofing is their excessive weight. This excess weight is due to the patching or repairing of roofs by placing new shingles directly over old ones. Excessive weight causes the roof to sag, and then a full roofing replacement is in order.

     

  • Durable and Low Maintenance: Residential metal roofing requires little maintenance, and can last up to 2 to 3 times the lifespan of an average asphalt shingle roof.

     

  • Energy Efficient: Metal roofing, in both light and dark colors, reflects heat effectively to reduce cooling loads in the summer and insulate homes during the winter.

     

  • Good for Harsh Weather: Residential metal roofing is hail resistant and wind resistant. Coatings can be tailored to specific environments. Metal roofing is also fire resistant.

     

  • Recyclable: A metal roof is recyclable. Some aluminum and copper roofing products are available with upwards of 95% recycled content. In addition, metal roofing materials are cut to size, which means less construction waste.
