When it is time to decide on a roofing system for your building, there is a lot of information to consider. Commercial metal roofing is quickly gaining traction in the roofing industry, and for good reason. If you are looking for a roof that is energy efficient, good for the environment, and will last decades, commercial metal roofing may be for you.
Though it is more of an investment upfront, the benefits of metal roofing help it pay for itself. No matter your climate, a metal roof can withstand the elements better than other roofing systems. You can design your metal roof to help heat your home, as unpainted metal will absorb and hold heat. If you paint your metal roof, the roof will allow the heat to bounce off and keep your home cooler. These options can provide up to 45% savings on energy costs.
Along with the energy efficiency, metal roofs can last a very long time. The Metal Roofing Alliance found that metal roofs can last 40-60 years compared to asphalt shingles that only last an average of 20 years. If you plan to own the building for a long time, this will save you the hassle and money of having to replace the roof in the near future. With these benefits, commercial metal roofing is also great investment for the resale value of your structure.
