Are you looking to buy a new roof for your home? We understand that the purchase of a roof is a big decision. Whether you need a roof for a new house or for renovating the old one, you need something that combines both longevity and an aesthetic appeal. There is a wide variety of roofing materials to choose. But, after some research, we have learned that metal roofing is superior.
During the past decade residential metal roofing has quadrupled its market share of the home improvement industry. The reason behind this dramatic increase is because the metal roofing provides homeowners with lasting value.
Metal roofing is superior to other materials in the following counts:
Although dependent on the material, most metal roofs have a life expectancy of 40-70 years. In fact, when properly installed, a metal roof should live as long as the house.
Metals roofs are resilient and can withstand a lot more than conventional materials. Buy a high-quality metal roof and have it installed by roofing experts such as Premiere Roofing. When properly installed, a good metal roof can withstand wind gusts reaching 140mph. Again, they don’t rot, are resistant to insects, corrosion, cracking, and fire.
Metal roof cut down energy costs by up to 25%. Although low in insulation value, they manage to reflect the sun’s radiant heat thus reducing midday heat. Some systems also make use of a dead air space between the roof deck and the metal to increase efficiency.
A concrete brick weighs 900 pounds per square foot, and a tile is at 750 pounds. Compare that to a metal roof which weighs 50 to 150 pounds and still delivers lasting value!
If you want to do a roof makeover, you don’t have wait long for the roof to be fixed. Metal roofs come in 12-36 inch wide sheets. An established contractor like Premiere Roofing can install them quickly and save you a day or two in the process.

Just want to thank you and your crew for the excellent job you did on my "sad" roof. It looks great & best of all, no leaks around the chimney. Bill was impressed with the post roof clean-up.
