We treat your roof like it’s ours.
Are you in the market for a new roof?
If energy efficiency, safety, longevity and increasing the value of your home are near the top of your list of priorities, you should consider contacting us to discuss the advantages of protecting your house with a metal roof. Here are several reasons why metal might be right for you.
1. You’ll Never Buy another Roof
Harsh weather, from rain, snow and hail to intense heat and sunlight, can take a toll on asphalt shingles, requiring you to replace your roof every 15 to 20 years — or sooner if your home is damaged by harsh weather. This is not the case with metal roofs. They will virtually last forever, standing up against the elements and the searing heat of summer.
2. You’ll Save Money in the Long Run
Asphalt shingles soak up the heat of the sun, turning your attic into a sauna and forcing your air conditioning system to work harder to cool your home. On the other hand, a properly vented metal roof installed by our team reflects sunlight and will keep your house cooler and save you money on your energy bill. You may even lower the cost of your homeowner’s insurance premiums, too, in part because metal roofs are noncombustible and fire-resistant.
3. Maintenance Won’t Be an Issue
Shingles need to be replaced periodically because they deteriorate, curl up and are susceptible to mold and mildew. Metal roofs are resistant to these problems, and they don’t leak. The only maintenance they require is an occasional rinsing with a hose or a pressure washer.
4. You’ll Increase the Resale Value of Your Home
A metal roof will cost you more on the front end than an asphalt roof, but, in addition to saving on your energy and insurance bills, the value of your home will immediately increase.
5. You’ll Help Save the Environment
Choosing metal allows you to reduce the amount of energy you use and cut down on the amount of roofing material that ends up in your local landfill. That’s were asphalt shingles go when they are no longer useful, whereas most of the material used for metal roofs is recycled.
6. Metal Roofs Look Better
Available in a variety of styles, shapes and colors, metal roofs can forever enhance the curb appeal of your home. Here at Palmetto Roofing, we use special coatings to make sure they never rust.
7. Quicker Turnaround
Since metal roofs come prefabricated in panels or sections with multiple shingles, they are quicker to install than conventional asphalt roofs. This is an important factor selling point if your roof is blown off by a violent storm. Your home can be whole again in a matter of days.
