When you compound the cost of replacing a shingle roof several times over your property’s ownership, the costs can really add up. Metal roofing is designed to be affordable, requiring one installation over a lifetime. With metal roofing, you don’t have to worry about roof replacement, repairs, or maintenance anytime during your lifetime.
Pair the durability with versatility and you have the total package. Metal roofs are durable and have extremely sturdy steel roof surfaces that can be crafted to mimic any roof type or style that you have in mind. They can incorporate the standard vertical seam layout or take on an appearance that is reminiscent of wood shake, slate, shingles or even clay tiles for a more classic look. The varieties of colors and patterns are endless, allowing you to select a metal roof that compliments your property’s exterior seamlessly.
When you have your metal roofing installed by Tom Sawyer Roofing & Construction, you are getting a warranty that covers your roof surface and materials for as long as 30 to 50 years. These warranties are true coverage warranties that even include a workmanship warranty from the installer, giving you maximum coverage on your property’s roof for many years.
With a traditional roof material, you are only covered for a portion of your roof’s life, making you responsible should anything go wrong with its integrity. A metal roofing warranty is designed to give you that reassurance that you are covered no matter what happens to your roof all the while you own your property. In most instances, you will never need this warranty, but it is good to know it is there for your protection.
Plus, these warranties are often transferable, allowing the next property owner to take advantage of its coverage. This is an attractive option for buyers looking for ways to get more value with their investment. It offers you increased resale value as you can offer a warranty on durable and long-lasting metal roofing.
Depending on where you reside, you may also qualify for lower insurance rates. Discounts as much as 30% or more are offered to homeowners that install metal roofing on their home. Based on the low number of claims filed with this roof type, insurance companies are willing and able to offer deep discounts to homeowners that invest in this roof material for their home.
Thanks to the nonexistent water damage from poorly maintained or rotting shingles and the elimination of fire damage with a metal roof, you can take advantage of these discounts and really start to see the saving with your investment. This offers you another way to save and reduce your monthly cost of homeownership with metal roofing.
Commercial property owners may also qualify for 15-25% premium discounts with the installation of metal roofs which are above industry standard hail ratings. And, depending on where the property is located, fire ratings and wind ratings may also qualify for lower insurance rates.
