Why Metal Roofing?
A very good question with an easy answer, Metal Roofs Can Be Installed in the Winter, But Regular Roofs Cannot!
Besides now being affordable, Metal Roofing offers homeowners numerous advantages over a traditional asphalt shingle roof:
Metal Roofing is in a class by itself when it comes to protection from severe weather. Garvin Construction installs metal roofing that carries the highest wind, impact (hail), and fire ratings. So it will provide the best protection for your home.
The working life of a metal roof will last 40-50 years, and even longer as compared to the 16 year average lifecycle of an asphalt shingle roof.
Unlike shingle roofs, metal roofs with Energy Star certified reflective paint systems reflect up to 70% of the sun’s energy, reducing attic temperatures. It will keep your attic cooler in the summer, and protect your home during harsh winters.
The paint and coating system used on metal roofs retain their original finish for decades. Other roof types will stain, buckle, fade, and suffer granule loss over time. Garvin Construction installs metal roofs with a paint system that comes with a 40 year limited warranty against fading, chalking, and cracking. Further, a metal roof can increase your home value due to its energy efficiency, long life span, and by making your home more attractive and better protected from severe weather.
Asphalt shingles generate an astounding amount of landfill waste each year and are made with oil refined by-products. A metal roof is 100% recyclable, and meets the definitions for both recycled content and recyclability by industry recognized green building definitions. Additionally, metal roofs can be installed directly over an existing asphalt shingle roof. So there is not tear off and need for the landfill deposit.
