Metal Roofing 101

You've probably seen a metal roof before but may not know much about them, so as your local Knoxville Roofing pro, we wouldlike to discuss some of the reasons it could be the right choice for you. Although the investment is going to cost you more up front, the savings can be recouped over time and here's how:

  1. Durability
    Ruling at the top of the list amongst owners of a metal roofing system is its long-lasting durability. When properly installed they'll typically last 40-70 years while withstanding winds in excess of 120 mph, according to a Knoxville Roofer.
  2. Fire Protection
    Built out of non-combustible materials, a metal roofing system will help to protect your home in a wildfire situation, which often times start on rooftops and spread from there from wind gusts and burning embers.
  3. Environmentally Friendly
    Traditional asphalt shingles are a petroleum-based product and only contribute to our increasing dependency on fossil fuels, and they have half or less of the lifespan to boot! They are also made from at least 25% recycled materials while being 100% recyclable themselves. Steel roofing will not lose its strength even after repeated recycling, and although it's heavier than aluminum it rarely dents, unlike aluminum, just ask your local Knoxville Roofing Contractor.
  4. Energy-Efficient
    A metal roofing system reflects the radiant solar heat rather than absorbing it, which helps cool your home during those long summer days. The metal roofing alliance says that a metal roof can cut cooling by up to 25%. Even though it is inherently low in insulated R-value, it can be applied on top of foam insulation to increase that value and save on heating costs.
