Benefits of Having a Metal Roof

metal roof benefitsA metal roof can be thin sheeting over your tool shed or the extensive, gorgeous copper roofing of the Canadian Parliamentary Building. There are, of course, pros and cons for most roofing materials, but if you can afford it, metal on your roof can be not only cosmetically attractive, but long-lived and durable as well.

Thin sheets of galvanized steel or aluminum are ok for keeping your chickens covered, but they are not going to withstand repeated hail storms or hurricanes. Of course, in the face of a tornado, good luck may simply be your only saving grace. Hail can dent the roof of your car. Of course a dent is better than a crater, but when exploring the idea of a roof made from metal, homeowners need to consider that the metal must be of a heavy enough weight and good quality to keep their assets and their family safe and protected from the exigencies of severe weather.

Metal, including copper, is very flexible and is often used to protect weather worn areas of shingled roofs. Many modern houses with sweeping arcs and highly geometric angles use metal to cover their roofs because it can be molded to the architectural design. Metal also lasts longer than other roofing materials. Thousand year old houses out in the country have had thatch roofs all these years, but that is because they are constantly repaired and replaced to keep them intact.

Copper is a gorgeous and excellent roofing material. Today, a special coating can be applied to assist the copper to stay its lovely amber hue and slow down the harmful aging process that naturally occurs because of exposure to the sun and weather elements. The green patina that you see on older copper roofs actually slows down the natural deterioration of the metal roof.
