Would a Metal Roof Complement Your Home?
Have you considered adding some character to your home by upgrading to a metal roof? Metal roofs are becoming more popular as people find appeal in their unique look and durability. While traditional shingle roofs often last anywhere from 10 to 20 years, metal roofs can last up to 4 times as long! The specialists at Cook Roofing Company have experience installing, repairing, and replacing metal roofs, and can guarantee a job done right the first time. Give us a call at 915-975-7321 to see if upgrading to a metal roof is the right decision for you.
Are Metal Roofs Durable?
When properly installed, metal roofs can withstand wind gusts up to 140 mph. Most metal roofs will not corrode in Van Horn, TX, as long as the right type is chosen for this area’s climate. Coatings and treatments are available to provide even more protection.
Depending on the thickness of the metal you choose, metal roofing can withstand hail of up to 2″ in diameter, as well as other impacts such as blown debris. The thickness is referred to as “gauge,” with the smaller numbers indicating thicker and stronger material. For example, 29 gauge is thinner than 26 gauge, of the two most common thicknesses available. 26 gauge is much more resistant to denting from hail than 29 gauge.
It is important to note that sometimes hail does still dent metal roofs. Cook Roofing Company suggests that you maintain insurance coverage on your new metal roof, even though carriers often suggest an exclusion to save money. Call us at 915-975-7321 to find out more about metal roofs today.
Does a Metal Roof Cost More?
If you are considering upgrading to a metal roof you may be wondering how they compare cost-wise to a traditional shingle roof. Upfront, metal roofs are more expensive, but if you plan on staying in your home long enough to enjoy the cost-saving benefits it may be worth it to you. For example, a standing seam roof cost around twice to three times as much as a traditional roof, but the average life of a metal roof is anywhere from 40 to 60 years. Standing seam metal roofs are also known for their curb appeal, as they come in a variety of styles and colors and will likely increase the resale value of your home. The specialists at Cook Roofing Company can help to figure out which style of roof is right for you.
How Much Maintenance Will My Metal Roof Need?
One of the appeals of a metal roof is their long-lasting durability, but how often will your roof need to be serviced? Metal roofs are built to last decades, resist rust and water damage, and will dry out more quickly than a traditional roof.
The roof itself should not need much attention once installed other than some basic cleaning to keep it free of leaves, debris, or other foreign objects which may unknowingly cause water to collect. As for long term care, about every 20 years you should have your roof resealed and repainted, as well as checking any replacing certain parts like old gaskets.
