Wondering what material you should choose for your next retrofit project? Metal roofing is known to withstand weather conditions and exposure to the elements for decades. By choosing metal panels, homeowners and business owners with low slope roofs don’t have to worry about maintenance or high replacement costs. This article discusses the reasons why metal should be your next choice for a retrofit!
For customers concerned with the longevity of their investment in a retrofit, contractors will want to choose a material that is going to last. Metal roofing has been known to last over sixty years, nearly four decades longer than the traditional flat-membrane options, and they manage well in harsh weather conditions. Metal roofing gives customers peace of mind that at the end of the day they are getting their money’s worth with a roof that will last a lifetime.
For business owners or homeowners who are environmentally conscious or wish to go with a sustainable roofing option, a metal roofing system is a great choice. Unlike traditional materials, many metal roofing products are made from recycled steel and can be recycled over and over. The recyclability of metal panels significantly reduces their contribution to landfills and pollution.
Metal roofing systems are also very energy efficient and a great choice for those concerned with high energy consumption and energy prices. Metal retrofit systems can be designed to provide extra insulation, which helps reduce heat levels in the warm months and retains warmth in the winter. In addition to insulation options, metal roofing has a high solar reflection rate which helps reduce the building’s cooling costs.
Those looking for a cost effective and aesthetic way to retrofit their roofs should consider looking into metal roofing systems, such as those offered by the experts at MBCI, a company dedicated to providing customers with the best quality metal building components.
