Top 10 reasons To Install A Metal Roof System

If you are looking to upgrade the roof of your home or business, metal roofing is an excellent option to consider. It has many benefits that other options do not. These systems are not just for commercial businesses and high-end homes. Many homeowners are realizing the great benefits of modern metal roofs, and they are increasingly installing them on their homes. I have put together a list of my top ten benefits of a metal roofing system. This will give you some insight if you are considering installing one. Please feel free to leave your comments or questions below.

10. Metal roofs are suitable for a steep slope where other heavy roofing materials may be dangerous or impractical.

9. Modern standing seam metal roofs can easily be integrated with solar panels.

8. Metal roofing does not contain any petroleum based products that go into the production of asphalt shingles.

7. Metal roofing is fully recyclable at the end of its service life.

6. Metal roofing materials are available in many textures, colors, and styles.

5. Many modern metal roofs are coated with products such as Kynar, which is abrasion, moisture, and UV resistant. This reflects solar heat, helping the homeowner reduce utility costs.

4. Metal roofs are very impact resistant and generally do not lose this resistance with age.

3. Metal roofs are highly fire resistant. Most metals are non-corrosive and will resist burning.

2. Metal roofs retain their value very well, which is an advantage if the owner decides to sell the property.

1. Metal roofs require much less maintenance than traditional roofing and can last three times longer than asphalt shingle roofs.

About Dave Mckinnis

I began roofing homes for a school teacher near the Omaha area in 1972 when I wasn’t going to school. I did this for about three years until the Department of Labor decided that someone my age was too young to shingle. Soon after this, I started shingling house on my own in Blair and Omaha until I graduate from high school. After graduation, I moved to Seattle, WA and worked for ‘American Roofing Company’. While working there, I installed flat roofs and steep sloped roofs for a couple of years until the owner was seriously injured after falling off of a roof. He could no longer run the company and I was asked to manage it for him and his wife. I successfully did this for two years before deciding to move back to Nebraska where I started McKinnis Roofing in 1981 with three employees. After growing in size, we incorporated in 1992. Today, I am responsible for all of the operations at McKinnis Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc. I feel very blessed to have many talented employees and family members who have worked with me for a number of years and do a great job with their responsibilities. I have met many people over the past thirty years through the projects we have done for our customers. Our goal has always been and remains to be 100 percent satisfaction from our friends and customers.
