Metal Roofing Maryland Options
Finding the correct metal roofing option can help protect your home and raise its value. Roofing costs will vary depending on the type that you choose. That’s why it can be beneficial to choose a roofing option that suits your budget and your home.
Copper roofing is among the more expensive metal roofing options. That’s partly because of its usages and qualities. Copper doesn’t rust, it’s malleable enough to tool, weathering makes it more beautiful over time, and it doesn’t scratch or peel.
Copper doesn’t need to be refinished, is flexible, fire-resistant, energy-efficient, and can improve the resale value of your home. However, for all of those benefits, you’ll have to pay a premium. However, copper can prove worth the investment because it can increase the resell value of your home.
If you’re considering a copper roof, speak with the roofing contractors at Roofing by Elite by giving us a call and scheduling a consultation for your free, no-obligation estimate.
Steel roofs are renowned for their durability, standing up against some of the toughest inclement weather. Steel roofing can maintain its integrity after decades of those varying harsh weather, standing up for everything from hail to snow and even fires.
Metal roofing can be an excellent option for many homes for lots of reasons. Aluminum roofs naturally reflect light and emit heat. This can result in significant savings in the cooling costs of your home.
Aluminum is very strong and long-lasting, naturally resistant to rust, and is priced much more affordably than copper. Aluminum roofs also come available in various colors, styles, and designs.
So if you require a cost-effective, fire and weather-resistant, lightweight roofing option, don’t fret. Speak with one of our experienced roofing contractors about this metal’s viability for your home in a free consultation today.
Benefits of Metal Roof Systems
Sheet metal roofs have become one of the most popular and desired roofing systems for homes and businesses. In addition to its beauty, its many positive features include:
- Long lifespan
- Longer durability than other roofing supplies
- Low maintenance
- Long term cost savings
- Will not deteriorate
- Weather resistance to extreme heat, wind gusts, snow, ice, hail, and more
- Made from non-combustible materials, fire-resistant
Longevity will be the hallmark of your metal roofing system. When properly constructed, they are virtually maintenance-free and can easily last fifty years or longer.
Metal Roofing – A Substantial Return on Investment
The initial investment in a metal roof can be significant. However, don’t let that dissuade you from this smart roofing option. Instead, focus on the fact that a sheet metal roof can last up to three times longer than other traditional roofs, such as an asphalt shingle roof.
Installing a metal roof means money saved in lower utility bills. Additionally, these roofs require little to no maintenance. This will result in even more savings.
Energy Efficient – Lower Utility Bills
A metal roofing system is more energy-efficient than other conventional roofing materials such as asphalt shingles. By their very nature, they reflect the sun’s rays rather than absorb them. This results in a lower surface temperature, reducing air conditioning costs, and lower monthly utility bills.
Also, an energy-saving sheet metal roof may qualify Maryland homeowners for government tax rebates and incentives.
Metal Roofing FAQ
At Roofing by Elite, our roofing contractors are faced with many questions from our clients. Here is a summary of some of the most relevant ones:
Does metal roofing in Maryland affect cell phone reception in the home?
We have found that customers who complain of poor cell reception have had this problem for years, way before the metal roofing was installed.
Does a metal roof make it more likely that the home will be struck by lightning?
It will not. Your metal roof installation in Maryland will neither attract nor pose any additional risk for lightning.
Will my metal roof be affected by hail? Will I hear too much noise when it rains?
The heavily textured nature of metal roofing results in a much stronger material that will be ready to take on whatever Mother Nature dishes out. However, we cannot predict how every hailstorm can affect your home. If a chunk of hail damages a bit of your roof, we can quickly repair it.
Once again, the deep-textured nature of the metal roof panels prevents them from producing any pinging noises when it rains. Attic spaces and ventilation also play a role in reducing any possible noise. However, if you are particularly concerned with noise, we offer optional foam inserts that can be placed behind metal panels or shingles for extra sound muffling.
What happens to a metal roof during a fire?
Metal roofing is non-combustible and offers excellent protection from fires. Also, since it is an extremely lightweight product, there is a reduced risk of cave-ins in fires.
Will my metal roof result in my home feeling hotter?
A metal roof can make your house cooler due to its reflective coating. This results in the sun’s rays bouncing off your roof, reducing your energy costs by as much as 20% every year.
Does a metal roof cost more than an asphalt one?
Metal roofing is a premium home product and can cost up to three times what an asphalt shingle roof costs. However, if you currently have a slate roof, you can expect your metal roof to cost less.
Consider that many metal roofing systems come with a 30 to 50-year warranty. Your new metal roof can add to the resale value of your home, save you money on your energy bills, and give you peace of mind in inclement weather. Speak with one of our roofing professionals today for a no-obligation, free consultation.
What factors into the cost of my metal roof?
In addition to the materials and labor needed to install your materials, consider the following in the cost of your metal roof:
- Existing roof (if any)
- Potential tear-off costs
- Size of the roof
- Underlayment and any other needed accessories
- Scope of work
Taller homes can be generally more expensive because of the amount of labor and the danger involved in installing a roof at greater heights.
How can a metal roof save me money?
Metal roofs save homeowners money due to their low maintenance, being environmentally friendly, and range of options. Lower long terms costs on replacement, maintenance, and damage to your home can also help you save money over time.
Metal roofing with emissive panels that release heat in high temperatures and retain heat when the weather gets cooler can help you save on heating bills. Metal roofs are the most fire-resistant material for a roof, and you could pay less on your home insurance premiums. Metal roofs increase the value of a property between 1 and 6% because potential buyers will do less maintenance.
