Steel roof installation has become an increasingly popular option for many homeowners. A new roof of any material adds value to your home, and protects you and your home from the elements. However, not all materials are created equally, and some roofing materials are longer-lasting than others. Steel roofing has quickly emerged as a high-quality and surprisingly versatile roofing option. Because steel roofs are strong, durable, and low-maintenance, it’s easy to see why steel roof installation has become more appealing.
Are you interested in steel roofing, but aren’t sure if it is the right choice for your home? Here are some of the most common questions we receive about steel roof installation:
Are steel roofs expensive?
Steel roofing is considered a premium product, and comes at a higher cost than a traditional asphalt shingle roof. However, steel roofs last a long time, and many come with warranties of 30 years or longer. There are a few unique benefits that help offset the cost of steel roof installation. A new steel roof increases the value of your home, improves your energy efficiency, and provides you with many worry-free years of use. In many cases, you will never have to re-roof your home again.
Will a steel roof match the style of my house?
Metal roofing has come a long way, and you may be pleasantly surprised by how many style and color options are now available to you. Steel roofing can even be made to look like many common roofing materials, such as cedar shake or asphalt shingle. Whatever the style of your home may be, you’re sure to find a steel roofing style that’s right for you.
Can steel roofing handle extreme weather?
Weather is one of the main causes of wear and tear for your home’s roofing. Temperature extremes, high winds, and heavy rain or snowfall can take a major toll on your roof. Our cold Minnesota winters can be especially damaging to your roof. A steel roof is able to tolerate decades of extreme weather, including extreme cold and heavy snowfall. Snow doesn’t typically accumulate on a steel roof, which helps prevent ice dams that can cause water damage in your home. If weather is a concern, you may want to consider steel roof installation.
How long do steel roofs last?
Generally, a steel roof will last at least twice as long as a traditional roof. A metal roof can last fifty years or more. Because they are so durable and long-lasting, it’s easy to see why many people are drawn to the value of steel roofs. You’ll be able to enjoy an attractive, low-maintenance roof for many decades without having to worry about replacement.
Is a steel roof too heavy for my home?
Most people generally think of steel as being an extremely heavy material, but steel roofing is surprisingly light. In fact, steel roofing is typically lighter than many traditional roofing materials including asphalt shingles or concrete tile. Steel roof installation is a great option for virtually any home!
