Those looking for the ultimate in roofing might choose metal over all the other materials currently available. Though similar to the designs used on homes during the 19th century, manufacturers now produce metal panels for use on roofs that can withstand the fastest and strongest of winds and everything else nature throws at them. Quality Exterior Services LLC has a long history of success with providing local residents and business owners with durable and dependable metal roofs.
Manufacturers put these roofs through a number of test conditions to ensure that the roofs are safe for use on homes and businesses across the country. The material can withstand winds of more than 100 miles per hour and keep fires from spreading too. Typical roof shingles have a low fire rating, and if a fire breaks out in the home, those shingles can actually help the fire spread along the roof and reach other parts of the home and even neighboring homes. Metal has a higher fire rating and can help effectively contain the fire to keep it from spreading.
Few people realize that metal roofs also feature a coating product on top too. This coating product gives the metal a bright and shiny finish that can last for 10 years or longer. Roofers can easily apply a new coat of the product when the luster fades. That coating also acts as a waterproofing element that keeps moisture from damaging the metal and keeps the metal from rusting. As long as the entire roof receives a coating of the product, the metal should not rust.
Many people want to know the top benefits of a metal roof before scheduling an installation appointment. The biggest benefit is its longevity. With proper care and maintenance, most metal roofs will last for at least 50 years, and some roofs may last for over 100 years. Homeowners will find that metal roofs can also withstand more environmental and weather conditions than other roofs can. Even when exposed to hail, high winds, ice and other hazards, metal roofs will still look great and be free from chips, cracks and other damage.
