Demand for metal roofing continues to increase, and for good reason. Not only do metal roofs withstand severe weather, they are also built to last. And the benefits don’t stop there! If your customers are still on the fence about investing in a metal roof, here are a few advantages of choosing metal:
1 - Material durability: Metal roofing materials, such as steel are inherently durable and resistant to many forms of wear and tear. They can withstand the impact of falling branches, hail and heavy rain without sustaining significant damage. This robustness contributes to their long lifespan.
2 - Corrosion resistance: Our metal roofs are coated with corrosion-resistant finishes and our layers of protection acts as armor for your customer’s investment. These coatings provide an additional layer of protection against rust and corrosion, ensuring that the roof remains intact and functional for decades.
3 - Resistance to rot and decay: Unlike organic roofing materials like wood or asphalt shingles, metal roofs do not rot or decay when exposed to moisture, humidity or pests. This resistance to biological decay adds to their long-term durability.
4 - Minimal wear and tear: Metal roofs maintain their structural integrity over time due to their resistance to common sources of wear and tear. Properly installed Central States metal panels are also engineered to withstand the expansion and contraction caused by temperature fluctuations or the stresses of heavy snow loads.
5 - Proper installation and maintenance: To maximize the longevity of a metal roof, it’s essential to ensure it is installed correctly by experienced professionals. Regular inspections and maintenance, including checking for loose fasteners and addressing minor issues promptly, can further extend the roof’s lifespan.
6 - Protection against UV rays: Metal roofs are resistant to the harmful effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. Unlike some roofing materials that can deteriorate and become brittle under prolonged sun exposure, metal roofs maintain their strength and durability.
7 - Resistance to mold and mildew: Metal roofing materials are not susceptible to mold and mildew growth, which can deteriorate other roofing materials over time. This resistance helps maintain the roof’s appearance and structural integrity.
