Metal roofs from Roofing Louisiana offer many benefits, including:
Longevity. Metal roofs often will outlast roofs made of other materials. Some will provide protection to your structure for 40-70 years, depending on the material. In comparison with traditional asphalt roofing materials that tend to last 12-20 years, metal roofs are more durable.
Durability. While materials may vary, there are some metal roofs can sustain wind gusts up to 140 miles per hour. They will not crack, rust, or corrode, and may be highly impact-resistant, depending on which type of metal roofing you select. Finally, metal roofs typically don't require the periodic costly maintenance that other roofing materials tend to require. This does not mean they will never need maintenance or repair, but they usually do not require the kind of upkeep that asphalt requires.
Safety. Metal roofs are not at risk of burning from a spark, fire, or lightning strike.
Energy efficiency. Metal roofs reflect solar radiant heat, which can reduce cooling costs by 10-25%.
Environmentally friendly. Metal roofs not only have 25-95% recycled material, depending on the material used, but are also 100% recyclable at the end of their life as a roof. In contrast, most shingle tear-off waste ends up as part of the building-related waste stream — up to 20 billion pounds per year.
