A Metal Roof is a Valuable Investment in Your Florida Home
More and more, Floridians are choosing to replace their roofs with metal. Not only is it attractive, it’s a valuable investment. Metal roofs last 4 to 5 times as long as traditional shingle roofs. Furthermore, they’re weather efficient for Florida, meaning they can withstand winds up to 140 mph, lower your energy bill, and resist rot and mildew.
Metal Roofs Last for Decades
Metal roofs last 40 – 70 years, as opposed to the traditional shingle roof which lasts 12 – 20 years.
Metal Roofs are Better for the Environment
Even though it will be many, many years before your metal roof needs replacing, it will 100% recyclable when the time comes. You can feel good about that.
Metal Roofs Come in Many Styles and Colors
Metal roofing material comes in a wide variety of colors and styles allowing the homeowner to choose a roof to complement the rest of the house. Metal is a very versatile roofing material. It is available as metal shingles and metal tiles for a traditional look or, in panels for something more modern and current. As for colors…let’s just say you are no longer limited to silver or gray.
Energy Savings with a Metal Roof
Pleasing appearance and longevity aside, a metal roof will actually save you money on your energy bill. This was proven in a 2013 study paid for by the U.S. Dept. of Energy and conducted by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
The ORNL testing consisted of three phases covering several years of study comparing traditional asphalt roofs to metal roofs with heat deflecting metal coatings. Their measurements showed the asphalt roof trapped significantly more heat in the attic causing higher temperature fluctuations in the home. The homes with Energy star rated metal roofs not only reflected heat, they had better air flow and less temperature fluctuations.
Temperature fluctuations in the home are what cause the air conditioning system to switch on and off. When these fluctuations are reduced, there are several benefits: less wear and tear on the system and lower energy costs. The Metal Roofing Alliance has shown that a metal roof can save your home up to 40% in energy costs.
A “Cool Roof” Pays For Itself
How will a “Cool Roof” save your money? Florida homeowners pay an average of $140 per month to cool their homes. Installing a cool roof will save the homeowner up to 30% in cooling costs. Based on the above average, that’s $42 a month. Over time, this savings adds up: $7500 in 15 years and more than $15,000 over 30 years.
A cool roof pays for itself!
