Did you know that the darkest metal is going to keep your attic cooler than the lightest asphalt product? It’s because asphalt absorb’s the heat, but metal reflects most of it. This isn’t to say that the metal won’t be hot to the touch!
Here at Clover Roofing, we are proud to be installing ‘investment grade’ metal roofs. This is any roof that is expected to last 50 years or longer. Whether your selling your home in the next 5-20 years, or you plan on your kids living there, we believe it’s a great investment. The United States could slow it’s dependence on oil if asphalt shingles were no longer the leading roofing material. Please don’t take the the wrong way, an asphalt shingle CAN be a great roof, but it has a very limited lifespan. It’s biggest problems are installation error and material defects due to manufacturer’s changing their product to make them cheaper. That’s why we are very picky about which asphalt shingle we install and how we install them. Anyhow, more about metal…
We love stone coated steel roofing products by Metro and DECRA, as well as standing seam metal roofs because of the following benefits:
- Class IV hail resistance(Stone coated)
- 50 year warranty, longer expected lifetime
- Increase your home’s value
- Increase it’s appeal to potential buyers
- Superior protection to the elements
- Lower life cycle costs
- Less maintenance
- Energy Efficient
- 120mph+ wind rated
- Reduces our negative impact on the environment
- Steel shingles come in different styles and colors: Tile, Wood Shake, Cottage, & Shingle
If your thinking about selling your house in 10-20 years, you’ll battle inspectors and potential buyers who will be questioning the roof. If the asphalt roof isn’t new, it’s “old.” So instead of installing a roof that will be a bargaining chip for the buyer, install a roof that will still be looking great, providing value, and still has a lot of service life left.
