Metal roofs are becoming a popular choice for homeowners. Their aesthetic appeal, protection against the elements and long-lasting durability making it easy to understand why. Having passed rigorous testing, many can withstand wind speeds up to 150 miles per hour and are resistant to fire. Additionally, metal roofs require little to no maintenance, are energy efficient and will reflect the heat away from your home rather than absorbing it. And, with the proper ventilation system, a metal roof will help keep your attic cool, reducing the workload of your HVAC system.
