Aluminum is especially a wonderful roofing material in the Bradenton area. It is one of the hardest metal materials used for metal roofing Bradenton, and can withstand corrosion that is inevitable when living so close to salt water. It is also extremely lightweight; therefore, it should never affect the structural system of your home.
Steel is another great material to use for a roof. It is generally a little heavier than an aluminum roof, but still much lighter than a shingled roof. Steel is usually covered with a protective coating (often made with a mixture of aluminum and zinc) that helps prevent any rusting or corrosion, as well.
There are many positive attributes of metal roofing Bradenton. Below is a list of a few of them.
Long life and long warranties
Many metal manufacturing companies will provide a warranty for their materials, most for about 50 years. This is a long life for a roofing material; about twice as long as an asphalt roof.
Decrease in energy bills
Many metal roofing materials are completed with an Energy Star rating, due to their ability to reflect the intense sun, especially evident in Florida, and will actually aid in keeping the interior of your home cooler than other roofing materials.
Metal roofs are excellent at withstanding strong winds during a storm, and for sealing out water. Metal also will not rot, mildew, or become infested with insects. Metal is also resistant to fire.
As many wonderful features there are about metal roofing materials, there are also a couple of negatives about them. One of the main concerns is the cost. Purchasing and installation of a metal roof can cost up to twice as much as a shingled roof. Of course, the metal roof is expected to last about twice as long, so it is up to you to decide if the cost is worth the expected lifespan. Also, there is always the possibility of denting occurring within the metal. This usually only happens when tree limbs fall onto the roof, or from very large hail pellets hitting the roof.
In conclusion, if you are going to be replacing or adding a roof soon, checking out the properties of a metal roof is definitely a good idea, Florida State Roofing And Construction Inc. is the best contractor to provide that service. Especially for areas around Bradenton, and the south Florida region, metal roofing Bradenton can be very functional, durable, and efficient.
