The Metal Roofing Difference
When you start thinking about a new roofing project, your first thought is likely of tile or asphalt shingles, whether you’re trying to save money or want to remain traditional. You may be surprised to find, however, that the freezing temperatures of a Canadian winter can cause flaking of regular roofing materials. Metal roofing is a sturdier roofing solution that offers residents of Brampton a variety of benefits.
Why You Should Install a Metal Roof
Some consider metal roofing to be an unnecessary expense, but the truth is that a metal roof may actually save you money. Think of it this way. While traditional shingle roofing materials might cost less upfront, metal roofs can last at least twice as long before needing replacement—and they require fewer repairs.
Depending on the material, metal roofs have the potential to last 40-70 years, while asphalt shingles have an expected lifespan of less than 20. So, your metal roof might just outlast the amount of time you live in your home. It will also be impervious to fire and lightning damage, and its environmentally friendly recycled content may just increase the value of your home even more.
Cold winters up here in the North can lead shingles to crack over time. Metal roofing expands and contracts with the temperature changes to endure through every season in Brampton. Some metal roofing materials can even stand up to hail and wind gusts as fast as 225 kilometers-per-hour. While it’s still a good idea to have your roof checked for damage after extreme weather events, a metal roof won’t require the consistent costly maintenance that comes from owning a shingled model.
And speaking of weather, metal roofs are the only roofs that will reliably allow winter installation. Shingles are traditionally attached with sealant, which needs warmth from the sun in order to bond. Applying shingle sealant in winter temperatures often leads to major leaks or loose shingles that can blow away when a strong gust of wind kicks up.
Metal roofs, on the other hand, are less vulnerable to the cold. Instead of sealant, they attach with nails and screws, which means you can effectively install them even on the cloudiest day of the year. You won’t spend the winter wondering if the installation took or if you’ll might need to spend more money in the spring.
Other good reasons to install a metal roof on your Brampton home or business include:
- Availability in an array of materials, styles, and colors
- Possible installation over an existing asphalt shingle roof
- Reduced heating costs using energy-efficient reflection of solar radiant heat
- Prevention of rodents and other pests from entering your home to nest
- Prevention of snow and ice accumulation, which could damage your roof
- 100% recyclable products after replacement
