Whether you want something different from the traditional asphalt roofing material or you want a certain rustic charm to it, there are a lot of benefits to choosing a metal roof for your Chevy Chase home. So why should you have Absolute Home Solutions install a roof on your home?
For most people, the life expectancy of their roofing material is in the forefront of their minds when having a new roof installed. With a proper installation, a metal roof could last as long as your home. Metal roofing is resistant to a lot of elements including insects, rot, and mildew that could ruin other types of roofing. Many of these roofs come with a 20 to 50-year warranty, guaranteeing the product and your home’s protection.
Most metal roofing comes in a multiple-shingle section or in panels. Since the sheets are already together, it can help to cut down installation costs and time.
Resisting the Elements
One of the best parts of installing a metal roof on your Chevy Chase home is its resistance to the elements. Unlike other roofing material, snow, ice, and rain cannot penetrate or hold onto it. Metal roofs are hard, slippery surface that makes these elements slide off easily. Another element this roofing can withstand is fire. These roofs are noncombustible and are the most fire resistant. This roofing material can be placed over more combustible materials such as wood shingles.
Most metal roofing materials can be installed with a gently pitched roof. Unlike other materials, this gentle pitching is done without the risk of leaking.
Metal roofs are used to reflect heat from the sun and to minimize the midday heat that could warm your home. This gives you the potential to save energy and to stay cool without air conditioning during the day.
While most people worry about the weight of a non-traditional roof on their Chevy Chase home, metal roofing is actually lighter than it looks. Most varieties run from 50 to 150 pounds per square while slate can be nearly 750 pounds. Some metal roofing can be applied over existing materials without the needs for extra support.
This roofing material can sustain wind gusts up to 140 miles per hour and will not corrode or crack. Some materials may be impact-resistant. In addition, metal roofing materials also do not have the costly maintenance needs most materials need.
