Iff your Nashville home is in need of a new roof, The Gutterman of TN has an exciting option for you: Metal shingle roofing. Metal shingle roofing brings the durability and other benefits of a metal roof, along with the classic look of traditional shingle roof. So why should you opt for a metal shingle roof from The Gutterman of TN?
Metal shingle roofs last well beyond the lifespan of traditional asphalt shingle roofs. While asphalt roofs last between 12 and 20 years, metal shingle roofs can last between 40 and 70 years. That means metal roofs can save you money on roof replacement costs over time, and give you one less home-maintenance issue to worry about.
Not only will metal shingle roofs last longer than asphalt roofs, but metal shingle roofs also are far more durable than traditional roofing materials. They can withstand winds as 140 miles per hour, and they are tough enough to deal with hail or falling tree limbs. Metal shingle roofs won’t rust, crack, corrode or harbor mold and mildew growth.
Metal shingle roofs reflect sunlight, which prevents your home from absorbing more heat on hot, sunny summer days. Because they deflect solar heat, metal roofs can save homeowners between 10 and 25 percent on home-cooling costs in the summer. And while metal roofs themselves don’t provide much insulation, they can be installed over additional roof insulation or with dead space that’s designed to hold in more heat during the winter.
Metal roofs can help protect your home from the elements and from potential disaster. Metal roofs aren’t combustible, so they won’t ignite due to lightning strikes, wildfires or stray embers from chimneys or nearby fires. They also for a tight seal over your roofline to protect your home from any potential leaks. Additionally, metal shingle roofs shed snow and ice more rapidly than traditional roofing materials, reducing your home’s risk for wintertime roof leaks or water damage.
Metal shingle roofs are far more environmentally friendly than traditional roofing materials. Metal shingle roofs often are made from recycled metal, and they lack the petroleum components of asphalt roofs. Because they last so long, metal roofs don’t put pressure on landfills they way traditional roofing materials do, and when metal roofs are due to be replaced, the old metal shingles can be recycled, rather than hauled away to a landfill.
Metal shingle roofs are a beautiful addition to any home. They allow you to achieve all of the benefits of metal roofing with the more traditional look of a shingled roof. Metal shingle roofs come in a variety of colors and finished to achieve your home’s desired look. And because metal shingle roofs resist rust, corrosion, cracking and staining, your metal shingle roof will remain beautiful for decades.
