Serving all of Southern and Central Oklahoma.
Benefits of Metal Roofing
The following list of benefits highlights the importance of making the transition the next time you replace your roof. The advantages of metal roofs include:
Depending on weather conditions and material, metal roofs can last anywhere from 40 to 70 years, compared to traditional asphalt roofs which have an estimated life expectancy ranging from 10-12 years.
Metal roofs are incredibly durable. They are proven to withstand a range of unpredictable weather conditions and storms, which are common in Oklahoma. Some metal roofs can withstand gusts of wind up to 140 mph, without any signs of corroding or cracking. Because metal roofs are impact-resistant, they don’t need to be periodically repaired or maintained, saving you money and time spent on repairs. However, like any roof, they should be inspected periodically.
In the event of a lightning storm or fire, metal roofs will not spark or ignite into flames.
Similar to asphalt roofs, metal roofs come in a variety of colors and coating. Installing a lightweight metal roof will significantly lower your monthly air conditioning bill, a big deal here in Southern Oklahoma. Metal roofs reflect sunlight, rather than absorbing it, which relieves the overall load on your cooling system.
Roofing materials like tin, zinc, aluminum, copper, and galvanized steel, are 25-95% recyclable. All of these materials are 100% recyclable at the end of their life, which significantly diminishes the amount of waste.
Metal roofs are both physically and aesthetically versatile. At Bailey’s Roofing and Construction, we are capable of matching or any era or physical design of a home, ranging from traditional to modern. All things considered, metal roofing is simple and easy to install. Standing-seam metal roofing is well suited for buildings that may not be able to withstand the weight of a tile or slate roof.
