Metal roofing can offer homeowners a fast and easy installation. Many people are surprised to learn that metal roofing is one of the fastest and easiest roofing materials to install. Unlike other roofing types such as asphalt shingles or roof tiles, metal roofs can typically be installed on top of up to two existing layers of asphalt shingles without tearing off the old roof first. This eliminates a lot of labor time and cost, making a metal roof a great choice for anyone who wants to improve their home’s curb appeal while also saving money in the long run.
Metal roofing is becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to traditional asphalt shingles in modern homes, businesses, and industrial structures.
Metal Roofing Benefits
A metal roofing system is a highly durable, long-lasting material that provides excellent protection for your house and has several advantages.
Low-maintenance – Most metal roofing products, such as roofing and siding, require little to no maintenance.
Durability – Metal roofing can last significantly longer than an asphalt shingle roof. It’s also highly resistant to fire and extreme weather conditions (hail, wind damage, etc)
Variety – Metal roofs are available in a wide range of styles and colors.
Lightweight – Metal roofs have significantly less weight than asphalt shingles, yet they are strong enough to withstand the harshest elements.
Energy efficiency – Because metal roofs reflect the sun’s rays, they are one of the most energy efficient roof types.
Quick installation – A metal roof can be installed on top of up to two layers of asphalt roof, eliminating the mess and cost of tear off.
Fast and Easy Installation
When it comes to installation, the procedure is fast and simple. The relatively low weight of metal roofing panels, compared to asphalt shingles, make it easier to handle. MetalMax can pre-cut the panel lengths so they’re ready for installation.
A competent contractor can swiftly install a metal roof on top of an existing asphalt roof without the need for time consuming, messy and costly tear-off, decreasing the time it takes to complete the installation by a day or two. Naturally, there are significant money savings if you can speed up and minimize the amount of time it takes to install a roof.
Metal roofs, when properly installed, should last for decades and are resistant to water, high winds, snow accumulation, and insect damage. The metal’s resistance to fire, mildew, pests, and decay pays off in the long run.
