Check Out Our Video on “3 Reasons to Get a Metal Roof”

Hey there, homeowners! Are you tired of your roof giving up on you faster than your New Year’s resolutions? Well, Tony from our Direct Metal Roofing Inc. team is here to save the day. In his latest YouTube video, he  breaks down the top three reasons why switching to a metal roof might just be the best decision you make for your home. Spoiler alert: it’s all about durability, savings, and safety. Let’s dive in!

Advantages of Metal Roofing

Reason 1 – Metal Roofs Last Longer Than Shingles

First up, Tony reminds us that a metal roof will outlast a traditional asphalt shingle roof by two to three times. That’s right—while your neighbor is replacing their shingles for the second or third time, you’ll still be lounging under the same trusty metal roof. Plus, the warranty on a metal roof is also two to three times longer than that of a shingle roof. Talk about peace of mind!

You won’t have to worry about doing this project again and again. A metal roof will keep you and your family safe for much longer. Think of it as the superhero of roofing materials, swooping in to save you from constant repairs.

Reason 2 – Metal Roofs Save You Money

Next, Tony explains how a metal roof can lower your energy costs thanks to its unique reflectivity and emissivity properties. Don’t worry if those terms sound like they belong in a sci-fi movie—Tony breaks them down for us.

Reflectivity: When the sun beats down on your metal roof, it will actually reflect some of those rays away from your home, unlike asphalt shingles, which soak up all that heat like a sponge. This means less heat transfer into your home, keeping it cooler.

Emissivity: Ever noticed how quickly aluminum foil cools down after you take it out of the oven? Metal roofs have the same magical property. The moment the sun goes behind a cloud or starts to set, your metal roof cools down rapidly, releasing any remaining heat. This keeps your home cooler, reducing the need for air conditioning and, ultimately, saving you money.

And guess what? Our metal roofs are Energy Star rated, so you know they’re top-notch when it comes to energy efficiency. Cha-ching!

Reason 3 – Metal Roofs Have High Wind Ratings

Lastly, Tony highlights the impressive wind resistance of metal roofs. Tested and proven to withstand winds up to 150 mph, metal roofs are your best bet for staying safe during those nasty windstorms and hurricanes.

Imagine this scenario with shingles:

  1. Big Windstorm
  2. Shingles flying off
  3. Attempting to find the same color replacements (spoiler alert—they never match)

With a metal roof, you won’t have to deal with any of that mess. Even if a metal roof costs a bit more upfront, it will save you money and headaches in the long run.
