When you own a home in Woodstock, it’s important to consider more than just the look of a new roof. The harsh weather that is so common in this area can wreak havoc with many roofing systems; however, residential metal roofing can be an excellent option. There are a number of advantages in choosing metal roofing Woodstock. For example, a metal roof is incredibly durable and it can last a lifetime. This means when you replace your aging roof with new steel shingles, you’ll probably never have to worry about a roof replacement again.
One of the many benefits homeowners will be able to enjoy when they choose Metal Roofing Woodstock is that their new metal roof can actually help save them money in the long run. While the initial investment will most likely be higher than having a traditional asphalt shingle roof installed, the longevity of a metal roof makes it much cheaper over the course of the roof’s lifespan. Of course, when you have Wakefield Bridge steel shingles installed, you’ll also get a 50 year transferrable warranty. This can definitely help add to the resale value of your property.
Steel Roofing Products today are available in a wide range of beautiful colors and design styles. These shingles are not only durable, but they’ll blend well with any architectural style as well as with the style of your neighborhood. As an added bonus, steel shingles are at least 60% lighter than a roof with asphalt shingles, clay tiles, concrete, slate or cedar shake roof. They are also more resistant to discoloration, leaking, and damage from harsh weather conditions.
When compared to aluminum shingles, steel shingles come out on top. They’re not only less expensive than aluminum shingles, but they also won’t deteriorate from the effects of oxidization, and they are stronger, so they won’t dent as easily as aluminum.
Wakefield Bridge Steel Shingles have a primary coat of Galvalume, a zinc and aluminum coating that resists corrosion. The primary coat is then covered with a primer coat of paint, followed by a coating of PVDF paint film with a Kynar 500 resin that is oven baked onto the shingle. This advanced coating creates a UV barrier to help you and your home save on energy costs, as well as, keep the shingles looking new and keeping the colour from fading over time.
Steel shingles also offer a great roofing option because they won’t curl, rot, split, peel, chip or crack. They also don’t leave those long, dark vertical tar streaks that are so unsightly; and, there are no granules to come lose from their backing that will end up clogging your gutters and downspouts like asphalt shingles tend to do. Many homeowners like the fact that metal roofing Woodstock can help eliminate the frequent maintenance that is necessary with other types of roofing materials.
Additionally, steel shingles help ensure that your roof will endure even severe storms. These shingles are able to resist tear off and damage, even in winds of up to 150 mph. Steel is naturally durable and steel shingles offer a number of excellent advantages because of this durability. For example, residential metal roofing, such as steel shingles, can resist heavy sleet, the nipping frost, pounding rain, and blistering sun as well as burning embers that have escaped a nearby house fire or brush fire.
Unlike asphalt shingles, metal shingles do not rely on the cost of oil around the world or the constant fluctuations when it comes to varying oil prices or the availability of fossil fuels. Metal shingles can be manufactured with new steel as well as recycled steel.
Wakefield Bridge Steel Shingles are designed with advanced Cool Roof solar reflection technology. You’ll get exceptional protection from the harmful rays of the sun but this technology can also help reduce air conditioning costs. So, keeping your roof protected and your home cool is now easier than ever.
Steel shingles are recyclable, so you’ll be getting an environmentally friendly roofing option. Unlike typical asphalt shingles, steel shingles won’t end up filling local landfills. These shingles are recyclable once they’ve reached the end of their usefulness as a roofing shingle. Asphalt shingles can sit in landfills for decades. Just imagine all those homes with asphalt shingles needing a new roof approximately every 15 years, that can have a huge impact on landfills all across the country. This is why metal roofing Woodstock will continue to grow in market share as other roofing products will no longer be desired.
Lastly, because the steel roofing shingles by Wakefield come with a 50 year warranty that can be transferred to a new owner if you happen to sell your home, you can typically expect your steel shingle roof to actually help increase the value of your property. When buyers are looking at purchasing a home, they often take into consideration things, such as how many years can they expect the current roof to continue providing protection for the home. A new roof installation is not only a major expense, but it can also be a huge inconvenience for the homeowner. When buyers find that they won’t have to think about replacing the roof for several decades, this can be a huge selling point as well as a feature that will add value to your property.
Sometimes homeowners wonder what their roof would look like with metal shingles. Many people have had very little experience with a metal roof; however, it’s not unusual for someone to think that they’ve never seen one, when, in fact, there are several metal roofs in their own neighborhood. These roofs are not only durable and long lasting, but they can also be very attractive, helping to keep with the overall design of your home. Most people will never even know that you have a metal roof because the shingles blend in with the rest of the roofs in your neighborhood.
If you are considering metal roofing Woodstock, it’s important to trust your new roof to a company that is experienced working with this type of roofing material. Not all roofing contractors are experienced in being able to accurately quote the total cost of a metal roof. Additionally, many don’t have the experience needed in order to install this type of roof so that it not only looks its best, but that it is also able to provide the longest lifespan possible.
