The benefits of metal roofing are numerous. It’s also a very versatile roofing product well suited for both steep slope and low slope roofing. If you missed our previous blog about the types of buildings with metal roofing in Knoxville, TN, click here. However, if you’re still undecided, here are a few reasons roofing companies in Knoxville, TN are installing more metal roofs than ever before.
Knoxville gets all kinds of extreme weather. From high winds accompanied by hail and strong rain to ice and snow. Rarely does hail do damage to a metal roof and it’s one of the most durable roofing materials against wind – most metal roofing withstands up to 140mph winds. It’s also Class A fire resistant which can reduce the risk of a wind-blown ember from a nearby fire or a lightning strike leading to a fire on your roof. Because of these reasons, you may find that your insurance carrier offers a discount on your homeowners’ insurance.
An average asphalt roof will last around 20 years. Metal roofing in Knoxville, TN professionally installed often lasts twice that or more. Maintenance and repairs tend to be less frequent which means although a metal roof costs more initially, over the life of the roof, you may end up spending as much as half than you would spend on two asphalt roofs when including maintenance and repair. And if you want an environmentally friendly material, metal roofing can be recycled at the end of its life.
Pest, Algae and Animal Proof
Metal is more resistant to all the things that damage asphalt roofing. You won’t find those unsightly black streaks on a metal roof as it’s naturally algae, fungus and moss proof. Pests have no interest in it and racoons and other rodents can’t chew or claw through it.
