Roof Authority just completed a new metal roof in Lawrenceville. This homeowner purchased the property to remodel for her retirement. It is situated on land where her horses can graze.
When the home was purchased, she knew that it needed a new roof. Because there was no storm damage and the home was recently purchased, she did not qualify for insurance. But she knew that a metal roof would be the best for a long-lasting solution.
Roof Authority installed a 26-gauge, gray standing seam roof. This is a popular option for residential metal roofing. It has a clean appearance because the fasteners are hidden within the upright seams. They also chose a high temperature adhesive underlayment that acts as an extra moisture and heat barrier to home. Roof Authority also installed a completely new exhaust system and seamless gutters.
Tough Enough for Hail
Funny side note, on the day Roof Authority installed her roof, it hailed. There was no damage!
Plus Other Benefits
Though the up-front cost is higher on a metal roof, homeowners are finding that they are worth the investment. Here are some of the benefits of a metal roof:
- Eco-Friendly and reduce energy bills – The metal roof is reflective, so it does not absorb as much heat as an asphalt roof. So the home requires less energy to cool it. Metal roofing is also considered eco-friendly because it is made of recycled materials and is recyclable.
- Could reduce insurance premiums – Metal roof materials are more weather and element resistant. They are able to withstand wind, fire and hail more than an asphalt roof and could lower insurance costs.
- Pay off over time – Metal roofing lasts longer, holds up to more and requires less maintenance than an asphalt roof. So, though the investment is higher up-front, but it is more cost effective over the lifetime of the roof.
