- A metal roof will offer you significant savings over the long-term due to its longevity and durability.
- Save on your home insurance - as much as 30 percent - by installing a metal roof.
- Increase the resale value of your home.
A metal roof is a premium roofing system which adds value to your most important investment – your home. The purchase price of a metal roof, comparable to other roofing systems including asphalt shingles, tile, or shake, will likely be competitive.
However, the long-term value of a metal roof is greater than that of other roofing systems because of its longevity. While your neighbors and friends are replacing their asphalt roofs every 12-20 years, your metal roof has a 40-year warranty with very low maintenance. These reduced costs will save you money.
The Metal Roofing Alliance clearly outlines the financial benefits of metal roofing: "Multiply not only the initial cost of asphalt roofing materials but also the cost of asphalt roof repairs and re-installation man hours to compare to the typical 'once-a-lifetime' metal roofing installation."
Metal roofing has an Energy Star rating which will help you save on your heating and cooling costs.
In areas of the country prone to severe weather or wildfires, there may be discounts available for your homeowner's insurance based on the installation of a weather-resistant metal roof. Metal roofing is resistant to hail, heavy wind, and wildfires.
To find out if a discount exists in your area, contact your insurance agent. Some areas may offer a discount of up to 30 percent.
