Is a Metal Roof Right For Your Home in Charleston?

Metal roofing offers many advantages over other roofing systems. But how do I know if it is the best option for my home?
Long-lasting
The length of life of metal roofing systems is a great place to start when it comes to the benefits offered by metal roofs:

Roofing USA is proud to offer a 50-year product warranty on all of our roofing products.

Durable

Metal roofing can sustain a variety of weather conditions. From hot, sultry summer days with high humidity to mild, cool winters, the durability of metal roofing is unbeatable. The strength of the sheeting is an excellent choice in hurricane season and potential damage caused by the high winds.Most metal roofing systems carry the highest rating possible against fire damage, a Class A fire-resistant rating. A common cause of residential fires occurs when wind-blown embers get trapped under asphalt shingles, so metal roofs offer much-needed protection in fire-prone areas.
Easy to maintain
Maintenance on a metal roof is minimal.

  • For starters, it is important to keep your gutters clear of debris, especially if you live surrounded by many trees.
  • Branches and trees can scratch up your roof, which could cause damage to the sheets.
  • Keep an eye on any dirt or stains after severe storms.

It is recommended we service your roof annually to protect its longevity, and replace any aged fasteners.
Eco-friendly
Metal roofing has been shown to reduce interior cooling costs by as much as 20% because, as the reflective sheets diminish the warm rays of the summer sun. This results in less heat being transferred into the interior of the home.Metal roofing can be 100% recycled and will not fill up our landfills.
Value
As stated above, metal roofs can last decades, making the investment of great value. The cost of a metal roof is higher than that of an asphalt roof, however the payoff is well worth the investment considering they last up to two times as long.
