Tim Leeper Roofing: 2015 Roofing Contractor Of The Year

Roofing Pros

If you are considering a metal roof for your business or home, it’s a good idea to do your research. When you know what you’re dealing with, it’s possible to make decisions that will bring you peace of mind for years to come. That is why we are examining metal roofs and looking at their advantages and disadvantages. We want to empower you to make the best decision for your property.

In our last blog, we looked at how metal roofs are non-combustible but are difficult to modify or repair. Today, we have another pro-con combination for you to consider!

PRO 2: Weight

Metal roofing weighs from 50 to 150 pounds per square. Compare that to a tile roof of similar durability at 750 pounds per square, and you can see that metal roofing will be far kinder to your home’s frame. That is always a good thing!

PRO 3: Life Expectancy

When a metal roof is installed properly, it will last as long as the house itself. It resists fire, rot, insects, wind, snow, and seals out water.

CON 2: Cost

Metal roofing offers elite durability, but you do pay for it initially. However, though the roof can cost up to $600 per square, it is so tough, you will make your money back (and probably more). You just need to ensure it is properly maintained.

CON 3: Possible denting

If you live in an area that experiences extreme hailstorms with large stones, your roof may experience some denting, especially if it is made of aluminum or copper. However, this is very rare!

We would be happy to discuss metal roofs with you. Contact Tim Leeper Roofing today for premier commercial roofing and more in Nashville!
