Metal Roofs In Memphis With Pinnacle Roofing
It’s often said that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb, but here in the Mid-South, we’re never guaranteed either side of that! Although our severe weather season is technically April and May, mild winters have a tendency to bring strong storms through Memphis as early as January, and definitely in March. We’ve already seen shingles on the ground, and it’s only mid-February, so we thought now would be the perfect time to talk about the benefits of metal roofing!
Versatility and Durability
Whether you have commercial or residential roofing needs, a metal roof is a versatile product that’s designed to meet a variety of building styles. Popular in many countries, metal roofs can withstand a wide range of climate conditions. Metal is able to resist damage due to freezing and thawing because of its nonporous exterior, and the steel keeps it free from termite damage. It can also stand against hail and winds up to 120 mph, an important advantage in Memphis!
A metal roof has the durability of commercial-grade roofing material, but still offers a richness and beauty that can enhance your home’s appearance. The interlocking steel panels provide a weather-tight barrier against the elements. The zinc-aluminum alloy coating provides resistance to corrosion, and the stone chip finish resists fading and UV-ray penetration, another benefit given the Memphis summer sun.
Less Money, More Value
Metal roofing panels are also non-combustible, and will not crack, break, warp, curl or split even under extreme heat, one of the reasons it’s a leading choice among home owner’s associations. Each panel is about 4-feet long by 1-foot wide, which makes for a quick installation, meaning less disruption to surrounding residents. Metal roofs can be installed over existing asphalt or wood shake roofs, so there’s no need for any messy tear-offs, and less old roofing materials to lug around to a landfill. Speaking of landfills, the recycled content of the steel in a metal roof is 56%, making it an environmentally friendly choice.
A metal roof can save you money and add value to your home. If a light color is chosen, it can reflect heat effectively enough to reduce the cooling load of your home in summer. Metal roofs have also been known to lower home owner’s insurance costs by a significant percentage, as well as potentially increase the resale value. Don’t forget to take into account the longevity of a metal roof when comparing it with non-metal options. Asphalt roofs generally last about 17 years, requiring reroofing every 10-20 years, if not sooner. In contrast, a metal roof offers unmatched durability, lasting as long as 40 to 60 years, and beyond.
