Metal Shingle Roofing in Nashville, TN

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 shingles in gray, dark gray and tan 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?

Lifespan

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.

Durability

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.

Energy efficiency

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.

Home protection

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.

Environmental friendliness

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.

Beauty

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.

Benefits of metal shingles

Metal roofs have been growing in popularity. They add a sleek, modern look to contemporary homes and they come with a host of benefits. In addition to the metal sheet roof, you can opt to add metal shingles to your roof. These shingles mirror the look of traditional asphalt- or cedar-shingle roofs but with all the benefits of a metal roof. Some of the reasons to install a metal roof include:

• Durability. One of the major reasons people choose to install metal roofs is the longevity of the materials. A metal roof can last approximately 70 years or more. That far outpaces the 12- to 20-year lifespan of a roof built from traditional metal materials.

• Energy efficiency. It goes without saying that metal reflects light. That makes metal roofs an excellent energy efficient option. The metal roofs reflect away sunlight, so your home won’t absorb as much heat. In summer, a metal shingle roof can save you on your home-cooling bills by as much as 25 percent. because your home won’t heat up as quickly under the intense rays of the summer sun.

• Strength. Metal roofs aren’t just built to last under normal conditions; they’re built to last under extreme circumstance. Metal roofs can withstand wind gusts up to 140 miles per hour, they don’t ignite easily in case of a home fire and they’ll hold up to a lightning strike.

• Environmental friendliness. Believe it or not, metal roofing is also environmentally friendly. Most metal roofs are made from between 25 to 95 percent recycled materials. Excess shingles or pieces (and the entire roof itself) can be recycled.

• Quick and easy installation. Metal roofs also provide easy installation. With their lightweight materials and easy installation, you can have a new metal shingle roof much faster than you would if you chose to replace your roof with a traditional asphalt roof.

With all of its benefits and its long lifespan, a metal shingle roof is the only roof you will ever need to install on your house.
