Wouldn’t it be amazing if there was a roof that always performed well and never needed maintenance? Unfortunately, that is not the case. Tim Leeper Roofing is here to make sure that isn’t a problem for you by offering world-class roofing services to all kinds of roofs, including metal roofs. Metal roofs are unique, because they offer elite durability. In our last blog, we explored some important pros and cons of metal roofs. In today’s blog, we are going to share the last few cons and reasons why metal roofs are a phenomenal option.
PRO 4: EASE OF INSTALLATION
Because metal roofs come in big sheets, a great contractor like Tim Leeper will be able to install them fast. This is great, because it means your vulnerable roof deck will spend less time exposed to the elements.
PRO 5: MINIMAL ROOF PITCH REQUIREMENTS
Because metal roofs form such a powerful barrier, they are great for gently-sloped roofs that would be at risk for retaining water and getting leaky.
CON 4: EXPANSION AND CONTRACTION
Metal expands and contracts as it heats and cools – more so than normal shingles. This motion tends to loosen the hardware fastening the metal to the roof. However, hardware that moves with the panels have made this a non-issue.
CON 5: DAMAGE AND CARE
Though metal roofs are tough, they can still fade, scratch, chip, and peel. That is why it is so important to have a professional install yours – the panels won’t be damaged from the beginning. As for care, your roof may need to be hosed down every once in a while to keep it looking like new.
