Steel roofing brings a host of benefits to the structure it covers and to the owner of the structure as well. Steel roofs last longer, require less maintenance, and resist the elements much better than traditional asphalt shingles or even premium materials, such as cedar shake, tile and slate. Along with the initial benefits, steel roofs provide long-term savings and add value to the structure itself, in both residential and commercial settings, and they are available in nearly any style imaginable. Replacing a traditional roof with steel is a long-term investment that pays out right away in the forms of equity, energy savings and lower maintenance costs.
While the initial cost of a steel roof, when compared to an asphalt shingle roof, is higher, the fact that a steel roof typically lasts up to 50 years greatly outweighs the initial cost difference. Traditional roofs need replacement every 10 to 20 years. Additionally, the initial cost is offset by a 30 to 35% reduction in heating and cooling costs, while increasing the overall value of the property.
There is a wide range of patterns and styles of steel roofing from which to choose, including shake, slate, tile and other common patterns, in addition to an endless variety of custom alternatives. Along with shapes and patterns, steel roofing materials also provide a range of coatings and thicknesses, dependent upon physical location, thereby helping homeowners match the best types of materials to their specific local conditions.
A more reliable and energy-efficient steel roof not only reduces costs and improves a given structure. It also helps the property reduce waste from replacements and conserve resources, as steel is one of most recycled materials in the world. The benefits of a steel roof are so extensive and well-documented that most insurance agencies now make concessions for properties with steel roofs, with state and federal tax incentives available, depending upon location and other factors.
