The Benefits of Metal Roofing
Metal roofing is a sustainable, versatile, and cost-efficient roofing option which is utilised by new and renovated homes across Australia. Below, we discuss 5 benefits of metal roofing.
1. Highly Durable
Metal roofing offers a high level of durability, able to withstand the hot summer sun and cold Melbourne winters. While Melbourne and the nearby Mornington Peninsula often experience severe weather conditions, metal roofing has the resilience to withstand the harsh Australian climate.
The tough metal roofing material resists corrosion, has excellent fire retardant properties and is not affected by termites and other insects. Additionally, metal roofing does not rot and typically comes with an extensive warranty.
2. Low Maintenance
Unlike tiled roofing which typically fades in the first 3-5 years after installation, metal roofing does not fade or oxidise for a considerable amount of time. The colour of a metal roof will remain vibrant and constant for many years. In addition, metal roofing does not chip like tiles.
Metal roofing is an excellent minimal maintenance solution. Once properly installed, the roof will be durable for years. A simple hose down can remove dust or dirt when needed.
Metal roofing sheets are able to span a wide area and be installed quickly. Faster installation allows the cost of metal roofing installation to remain low.
Metal roofing is known for being a long-lasting durable product that doesn’t require upkeep, meaning maintenance costs do not need to be considered. In addition, metal roofing often has a long warranty period.
4. Energy Efficiency
A properly installed metal roof with insulation offers thermal regulation, allowing your family to keep cool in summer and warm in the winter.
When you have metal roofing which contributes to temperature regulation, this ensures your home is energy efficient and ultimately reduces the cost of keeping air conditioning and heating systems running.
5. Design Options
Metal roofing is available in a range of colour and style variations. Choosing a metal roof gives you extensive appearance options as well as the many benefits listed above.
