Do Metal Roofs Add Value to Your Home?
Metal roofing has become one of the more popular roofing options for homeowners, mostly because of its longevity. Compared to a traditional asphalt shingle roof that will need to be replaced within 15 to 20 years, a metal roof lasts a lifetime. This makes it a premium option for a homeowner who is looking to put his or her home on the market, as a metal roof can be a significant selling point. It’s also a great choice for a homeowner who is in his or her “forever home,” as not having to worry about budgeting for a roof replacement down the road can be a substantial relief.
A metal roof adds value to your home in other ways, too, not just due to its longevity. Consider the following benefits:
- Low maintenance – A metal roof won’t require constant upkeep or even repairs and resists fading, rusting, cracking, and rotting.
- Energy efficiency – Metal roofs deflect the sun’s heat to keep homes cooler than traditional roofing styles.
- Protection against the elements – Metal roofing can withstand high wind speeds (often as high as 120 mph) and many feature Class A fire ratings, which is the highest rating available. Plus, with a metal roof, you won’t have to worry about snow buildup as it sheds precipitation quickly to protect your roof’s structural integrity.
