LOWERS ENERGY COSTS
Permanent Roofs Are Actually LESS Expensive than Regular Roofs
Thanks To Huge Energy Savings.
Metal Roof and Asphalt Roof both work well as a building shelter but the similarities diverge greatly when it comes to energy efficiency and costs. Asphalt shingles typically absorb and trap heat, which seeps through the roofline into the house. That increases the temperatures inside the structure throughout the day.
Metal Pro roofs reflect a high percentage of UV rays and reflect them back into the atmosphere. In turn, this significantly reduces the cooling demand during the summer months and can lead to up to 40% savings on energy bill. Because Metal Pro® Roof typically lasts over 100 years, the energy savings will compound greatly over time.
Transform Your Home into a Stunning Showplace.
One thing that’s obvious about permanent roofs is that they look GREAT. Metal Pro Roofing products come in a variety of colors, styles, and shapes, so there is definitely something for everyone and every home. What you might not realize is how much newer and nicer a permanent roof can make your home look. Yes, YOUR home! You’ve probably gotten used to your home and roof the way it has been for years but look at these comments from homeowners who found out that their homes were “reborn” after adding a new permanent roof:
“Our roof didn’t appear to be all that worn out, although we knew that it did show some of the signs of wear and tear. We decided to move forward on the project, thinking that we’d like the peace of mind of protecting our home against leaks and damage, but that our home would look about the same.. Let me just say this: we were wrong. The new roof looks AWESOME. To say we are pleased–and surprised–is an understatement.” -Steve Johnson
“I Had No Idea How Much NEWER our home would look when we replaced our old roof. I knew it would be more weatherproof, but, the new roof is STUNNING. My home looks totally revitalized and “young” again. I’ve had at least a half a dozen of my neighbors make comments to me.” -Mark Oldroyd
INCREASES HOUSE VALUE
Get Back 85% of Your Money on a Permanent Roof … IMMEDIATELY
If you’ve been considering upgrading your home and increasing its resale value, you should know that beautiful and enduring metal roofing is highly valued as one of the top renovation-friendly building materials known to man.
As reported by Sal Alfano of Remodeling Magazine, homes renovated with standing-seam metal roofing show a rate of 85.9% cost recouped in the national average with up to 95.5% for homes in the Eastern states. Think about that for a second. Really think about it. That means that if you spend $20,000 on a new roof, your home will instantly be worth about $17,000 more… for a net cost of only $3,000.
Not only does this rate of return far exceed asphalt roofing, it is one of the most valuable remodeling projects you could ever do, adding far more value to your home than even a master suite addition.
Wildfire Devastates Entire Neighborhood…Except for Metal Proofed Home
Burning embers destroyed all of the homes in this neighborhood, except the home with Metal Roofing. While all of the neighbors fought (without success) to save their homes by watering down their asphalt roofs, burning embers could not ignite the steel roof.
The facts are simple and undeniable, a permanent roof can drastically increase the chance of saving your home in a fire. That’s because permanent roofs are not fire resistant, they are absolutely FIRE PROOF . When you consider the safety of your family, the decision becomes even easier.
Your permanent roof will also withstand the harshest of weather conditions without so much as a scratch or dent. Hail is one of Mother Nature’s biggest weapons, but it’s no match for a permanent roof. In the spring of 2003, hailstorms struck neighborhoods in Texas, Kansas and Missouri, causing hundreds of millions of dollars in property damage. Hail pounded Dallas-Fort Worth airport so hard that American Airlines was forced to take 60 aircraft out of service.
Several homeowners with permanent roofs weren’t worried in the least. Jeff Pruett of Plano, TX said, “When the storm came through on April 5, it ravaged almost everything in my neighborhood, but didn’t even scratch my metal roof.” Another homeowner, Mark Rieth, reported “We had golf-ball sized hail that did serious damage to my car, but our roof was untouched. I wish my car was as hail resistant as my roof!”
In addition to hail protection, many permanent roofs are also warranted against winds up to 120 miles per hour, the equivalent of an F2 tornado!
How Long Should a Good Roof Last? Nothing Short of Forever.
Regardless of what type of permanent roof you decide to go with, you can expect it to last a very long time. Metal Pro roofs all come with a minimum 50 year warranty.
When comparing roofing warranties, make sure you read the fine print and understand the details. Many asphalt roofs that carry impressive sounding 25 or 30 year warranties are actually only warranted for 5 to 7 years under regular conditions. Permanent roofs are guaranteed to last 50 to 100 years–with very few or zero conditions. Again, make sure you request a detailed explanation of any roofing warranty you are considering.
Do Your Part to Help the Planet. Install Green Roof.
Reduce Waste: Over 20 billion pounds of asphalt shingles are dumped into US landfills every year. A beautiful new metal roof can be installed right over the old asphalt one, so there’s no need to discard anything. Plus, since the roof will last forever, it will never end up in a landfill and the materials are recyclable if it ever is discarded
Recycled Materials: This is a roof you can feel good about. Around 56% of the materials come from recycled content. Every ton of steel that is recycled saves 2,500 pounds of iron ore, 1,400 pounds of coal, and 120 pounds of limestone. Steel made from recycled materials uses as little as 26% of the energy required to make steel from raw materials.
