Whether you want to install a new residential roof, or you’re looking to replace an existing flat roof, metal is one of the best materials you can choose for virtually any application and any climate. In a warm climate, metal roofs can protect your home or building by reflecting harmful UV radiation, being ideally suited as what is called a “cool roof.” In the winter, they can help keep heat from escaping your home and ease the load on your HVAC unit, which might even last longer as a result.
NWR Commercial Denver roofing professionals confirm that metal roofing also has many other qualities that have to be taken into consideration:
- It’s virtually fireproof, and most metals will require temperatures of well over 1,000 decrees in order to start losing their structural integrity.
- When installed and coated properly, a metal roof can retain its waterproof qualities for many years.
- Overall durable and resilient in the face of hail impact, you can expect your metal roof to last for anything from 40 to more than 75 years.
- Some metal roofing systems require virtually no maintenance, so you can keep them in prime condition for decades with just minimal expenses spent on a few mild maintenance and repair tasks here and there.
