Why are metal roofs a great investment for homeowners?
Have you ever considered replacing your disposable shingle roof with a metal roof? It’s a great investment in your home for many reasons. The average monthly energy bill is $250, multiply that by 12 months and your average yearly energy bill is $6,000. After 20 years, you will have spent $60,000 in energy bills. With a metal roof, you can save 40% in energy costs; that is a savings of $24,000.
Mighty Metal Roofing uses Metal Constructions Association (MCA) certified steel that is shielded by Galvalume; this ensures for corrosion resistant roofs. Mighty Metal Roofing has 40-year limited warranty. The average shingle roof in the Mid-south only last between 15-20 years, metal roofs last on average over twice as many years as shingle roofs.
Why is a metal roof a great investment?
1. Resale Value
The resale value of a home with a metal roof is one to six percent higher than the resale value of an asphalt-shingled home. On average, homeowners will recover 86% of the costs of the metal roof.
2. Lower homeowner expenses
Metal roofs have lower maintenance costs, lower insurance rates and lower risks for emergency repairs. Metal roofs transfer less heat inside your home which allows you to use less energy on air conditioning. In total, you can save up to 40% on cooling costs.
Also, metal roofs act as an insulator, which is a benefit in the winter and the summer. Both cool and warm air is circulated and kept from escaping. Condensation build-up in the attic negatively affects insulation value – by installing a metal roof, you can reduce this build-up.
3. Environmentally Friendly & Tax Benefits
Unlike asphalt roof shingles, metal roofs can contain up to 40% recycled steels and are made of 100% recyclable content. With Energy Star Certified metal roofs, like are installed by Mighty Metal Roofing, homeowners can get up to $500 in tax credit for material costs.
4. Fire Resistant
Metal roofs are innately fire resistant. Have you heard of the stories where entire neighborhoods have been destroyed because one house caught fire and the wind brought embers to the other homes? With metal roofs, the embers are less likely to spark a flame. A bonus is that insurance on home with metal roofs are lower.
