Why Choose Metal for Your Avon, CT, Roof
Most homeowners in Avon, CT, are very interested in increasing the energy efficiency of their home while reducing maintenance expenses. These are some of the key benefits of a metal roof. Metal adds durability, longevity and sustainability to a roof, and far outperforms traditional shingles. Let’s take a closer look at why at Classic Metal Roofs, we believe metal creates “the best roofs under the sun.”
Benefits of Metal Roofing
- Longevity. The average life span of an asphalt shingle roof is 12 to 20 years. By contrast, metal roofs perform decade after decade, for 50 years or more. This benefits the homeowner and the environment by decreasing the amount of times a roofing system needs to be replaced.
- Durability. In addition to a long service life, metal is a very resilient material that can stand up to extreme weather conditions without suffering damage. Metal roofing by Classic Metal Roofs meets Underwriters Laboratory’s UL 2218 Impact Resistance Testing at Class IV, the most severe test that simulates the worst hailstorm. It also stands strong against fire, high winds and freeze/thaw cycles.
- Sustainability. There isn’t a more sustainable material than metal. It can be manufactured from recycled materials and is virtually 100% recyclable when it reaches the end of its lifespan. Because the surface of a Classic Metal Roofs system has special reflective pigments embedded in the finish, much of the sun’s energy is reflected, keeping the roof cooler than traditional materials. This results in a significant reduction in air conditioning costs. And because a Classic Metal Roofs system can often be installed over an existing roof without tearing off what is already there, this helps to reduce shingle waste.
