Still looking for the right roofing option for your home? If shingle roofing doesn’t cut it for you, you should consider getting standing seam metal roofing instead. According to our roof replacement experts, this option has several advantages over more popular options that could benefit you.
No Grit On the Gutters
Because standing seam roofs are made of metal, you don’t have to worry about granule loss. Granule loss is a common issue for asphalt shingle roofing that could compromise your roof’s ability to protect your home against the weather and also increase the risk of your gutters getting clogged. This makes standing seam metal roofs easier to maintain.
Metal roofing is known for its ability to reflect a lot of heat away from the home. Even better, metal also sheds whatever heat isn’t reflected off at a faster rate than any other roofing material. If you want a roof that can keep you cool especially during summer, ask a roofing contractor to install a standing seam metal roof.
When installing tile or asphalt roofing, each piece has to be laid out one by one and it could take a lot of time. Because standing seam metal roof panels cover more area, installation is a lot easier. Because metal is a lightweight material, there’s also no need to set up extra reinforcements which further speeds up the process.
When replacing shingles or tiles, one of the biggest challenges is finding the right replacements to make sure that the roof doesn’t look like it was just patched up. With standing seam metal roofs, roofing repair experts only have to apply a similar coat to make the new panels blend with the existing ones, which is much easier to do than searching for matching tiles.
