If you’re building a new home or your current home is ready for a new roof, there are some decisions you will have to make regarding your new roof. There is a wide variety of roofing material available these days in addition to traditional asphalt shingles, such as slate, tile, shake, and metal. Each material will have its pros and cons, so relying on experienced, professional roofers to assist with these decisions is a sensible move. Having installed roofing of all types, they will be in a unique position to offer you advice on which materials are most expensive to install, which ones are most energy-efficient, which ones will last the longest, and so forth.
Metal roofing is becoming increasingly popular and for good reasons; beginning with the installation, metal roofing doesn’t entail a tear-off process, where all previous roofing material is removed and discarded. Metal Roofers in Denton TX can install a new metal roof directly over the existing one. This makes the entire process faster, less expensive, and you don’t have the headache of trying to get the old roofing material properly disposed of. By installing the new metal roof over the old roof, it not only increases the already impressive insulation factor of a metal roof; it also increases the noise abatement element. Contrary to popular belief, a metal roof is no louder during a rainstorm or a hailstorm than a more traditional roof, and adding an extra sound barrier is just icing on the cake.
Metal roofs are more energy-efficient than most roofing since they tend to reflect a large portion of the sun’s rays in the summer and hold in heat during the winter. Environmentally speaking, metal roofs are greener than most other roofing in that they are often made of recycled material and when they are removed, they can be recycled yet again. Of course, since a metal roof can last between 50 and 60 years, it will be quite some time before it will need to be replaced. That longevity is due to the fact that metal roofs stand up to high winds, hail, and other damage better than any other kind of roofing.
