5 Benefits of Metal Roofing

Are you looking to buy a new roof for your home? We understand that the purchase of a roof is a big decision. Whether you need a roof for a new house or for renovating the old one, you need something that combines both longevity and an aesthetic appeal. There is a wide variety of roofing materials to choose. But, after some research, we have learned that metal roofing is superior. 

During the past decade residential metal roofing has quadrupled its market share of the home improvement industry. The reason behind this dramatic increase is because the metal roofing provides homeowners with lasting value. 

Metal roofing is superior to other materials in the following counts: 

Longevity

Although dependent on the material, most metal roofs have a life expectancy of 40-70 years. In fact, when properly installed, a metal roof should live as long as the house.  

Durability

Metals roofs are resilient and can withstand a lot more than conventional materials. Buy a high-quality metal roof and have it installed by roofing experts such as Premiere Roofing. When properly installed, a good metal roof can withstand wind gusts reaching 140mph. Again, they don’t rot, are resistant to insects, corrosion, cracking, and fire.  

Energy Efficiency

Metal roof cut down energy costs by up to 25%. Although low in insulation value, they manage to reflect the sun’s radiant heat thus reducing midday heat. Some systems also make use of a dead air space between the roof deck and the metal to increase efficiency. 

Weight

A concrete brick weighs 900 pounds per square foot, and a tile is at 750 pounds. Compare that to a metal roof which weighs 50 to 150 pounds and still delivers lasting value! 

Easy Installation

If you want to do a roof makeover, you don’t have wait long for the roof to be fixed. Metal roofs come in 12-36 inch wide sheets. An established contractor like Premiere Roofing can install them quickly and save you a day or two in the process.

3 Common Summer Roofing Problems and What You Can Do About Them  

We all have a roof. We all need a roof for protection from the elements. And, yet, many of us don’t think about the necessity of our roofs until they begin to malfunction. Here, we’ll look at three common summer roofing problems and what you can do about them.

Problem #1 The Sun’s UV Rays

Ultraviolet Radiation can dry out and damage shingles and roof tiles over a period of time. Eventually, shingles and perhaps even some roofing tiles will fall off, leaving parts of your home more vulnerable to further damage.

Solution:

  • Purchase protective coatings specifically designed to lessen the effects of UV rays on roof tiles and shingles
  • Read instructions in their entirety
  • Completely cover your roof with the coating

Problem #2 Moss and Algae Growth

Moss and algae thrive in the summer heat. They can grow to cover large portions of your roof. Moss harbors moisture, and moisture causes roofs to rot.

Solution:

  • Purchase a high pressured washer and ladder to clear off the moss and algae from your roof
  • Make sure to have a “spotter” whenever you attempt to crawl up to the roof

Problem #3 Low-hanging Tree Branches

Gusts of wind can cause branches to rub against roofing tiles. Branches can slowly chip away at the outer roofing layer until the outer layer becomes the inner, and your roofing tile is rubbed raw. Or limbs can fall onto your roof, damaging its integrity.

Solution:

  • Purchase or use a saw and ladder to cut away any branches near your roof
  • Designate a “spotter”

What our clients are saying
“We interviewed 5 roofing companies before deciding to go with Premiere. Not only were they offering a superior product but they offered it at a very reasonable price. On the day of installation, their team was incredibly hard working and did a great job of moving quickly while still protecting our home and yard. Darrel and Jonny were fantastic to work with and kept me informed at every step. If I had it to do over, I would definitely select Premiere Roofing again!”
