What Are the Advantages of a Metal Roof?

If you’re shopping around for a new roof, one of the first things that you’ll have to consider is what type of material you want to use. While there are many different kinds, you might want to consider the advantages of a metal roof.

Metal roofing is among the most popular materials used and far surpasses other roofing materials for a number of reasons.

Long Lasting Durability
When installed properly, a metal roof can last as long as your house. The material serves to seal out water and withstand winds. Metal is also resistant to fire and won’t rot.

Whether you’re faced with strong sun or relentless rain, metal will provide a lasting solution for your home.

Aesthetically Appealing
Modern metal roofs are bringing much more variety and long lasting style to your home. By choosing a reputable brand like Gerard Metal Tile Roofing, you can have all the benefits of metal with the aesthetics of typical roofing materials. Choose from a variety of colours, textures, shingles and finishes—all made to withstand the elements just as well as the rest of your home.

You can enjoy the benefits of multi-layered coatings, UV protection technology and special light-fast pigments to provide resistance against environmental fading. Your home will maintain its visual appeal and look good for much longer.

Reduced Installation Costs
Auckland is a coastal city that sees its fair share of wind. That means that when you have a new roof installed, you’re likely to spend more money on special materials or fastenings to cope with the extreme conditions. That is, unless you choose Gerard pressed metal tile roofs. This metal roof doesn’t require any of the extras in order to stay safely over your head, no matter what plans the elements have.

Lightweight and Strong
Metal roofs are much more lightweight compared to concrete tiles. However, their weight does not compromise their strength. In fact, the Gerard pressed steel roofing system, for example, weighs about 10 times less than the equivalent in concrete tiles.

Even simpler metal long run roofing is extremely lightweight, which means that you may even save on support structure costs if you are building a new home with your new roof.
