5 Benefits of Metal Roofing
Whether you are building a new construction from the ground-up or you are replacing the roof on an existing home, one of the first steps in designing your new roof is selecting your roofing material. At A & A Quality Roofing, we offer a variety of high-quality roofing products. From asphalt shingles to tile roofing and everything in-between, we carry a wide selection of roofing materials to meet your roofing needs. If you are on the fence about which material you want to use, or if you are interested in metal roofing but unsure if it is the best option for you, there are several great benefits to using metal roofing materials on your West Plains home.
One of the most impressive benefits of metal roofing is its long-lasting nature. A typical asphalt roof lasts 15 to 20 years, whereas metal roofs can last 50 or more years. In other words, a metal roof lasts more than twice as long as most asphalt roofs. One metal roof installation and you won’t have to worry about your roof again for decades, if at all. Of course, metal roofing is more expensive than asphalt in terms of up-front costs, but with more than twice the life-expectancy, metal roofing can actually save you money in the long run. Metal is a smart material choice for your roof if you do not want to have to make roofing material decisions all over again 15 to 20 years from now.
Another benefit of installing a metal roof on your West Plains home is its durability. Metal roofs, whether they are made of metal shingles, standing seam, or other metal roofing material, are able to withstand extreme weather of all kinds. Torrential rains, lighting storms, hail, snow, and fierce wind are all no match for the durability of metal roofing. Metal roofs are even more fire resistant than traditional roofing materials, and aren’t going to ignite if struck by lighting, for example.
Due to their reflective quality, metal roofs can actually increase your West Plains home’s energy efficiency dramatically. The metallic, reflective surface of a metal roof reflects some of the sun’s energy away from your property instead of absorbing it. Traditional dark asphalt shingles actually absorb the energy and heat from the sun’s rays and pass it into the structure of your home, heating your home by up to 25 degrees. By comparison, metal roofs drastically reduce the amount of excess heat absorbed by the sun, saving you money on your cooling costs.

At A & A Quality Roofing, we provide variety of metal roofing products in several color options. No matter what style of metal roofing you choose, it is sure to accentuate your home’s curb appeal. Additionally, metal roofs actually make your home more appealing to potential buyers as well. In fact, installing a metal roof can raise your home’s value by up to 6% when compared to a traditional roof. Consider selecting metal roofing to add extra appeal to your home.
Metal is an environmentally friendly roofing option in several ways. For example, metal roofing is often made from some recycled materials. Additionally, when your metal roof finally reaches the end of it’s long lifespan, it is actually fully recyclable. Not to mention that typical asphalt roofing contributes heavily to construction waste in American landfills. Installing a metal roof now will mean fewer asphalt shingles dumped into landfills 15 to 20 years down the line.
