When it comes to the resale value of your home, a metal roof is an investment that can yield a high return. According to the 2020 Cost vs. Value report, a new metal roof can add up to 60% of its cost to the resale value of your home. Additionally, a metal roof may make your home more attractive to potential buyers, especially if they are looking for a low-maintenance, long-lasting roofing option. Unlike shingled roofs that will depreciate your home's value, your metal roof will maintain your investment and give you a strong ROI (return on investment).Having a metal roof installed on your home can be a very comforting feeling knowing that if and when you may decide to sell your home, you will be able to offer a transferable roof warranty to your new home buyer.
Many insurance companies offer reduced premiums for homeowners with metal roofs. Metal roofs are more durable and weather-resistant than other roofing materials, which means they are less likely to require repairs or replacements. By upgrading to a metal roof, you could save money on your homeowners' insurance premiums over time. Insurance companies look favorably on metal roofing because research has shown that homes with metal roofs receive less damage from storms and house fires, which means the company is much less likely to have to pay an insurance claim. Durable and fire resistant, metal roofs are usually the most appealing to your insurance company. The Metal Roofers always has a licensed insurance adjuster on staff ready to help you through the complicated process!
Metal roofs save you on energy costs by reflecting the sun’s heat away from your house. Energy Star-rated metal roofs can save homeowners up to 50% in energy costs. The surface of a metal roof is typically 100 degrees cooler than traditional asphalt roofs [source: MRCA]. Most metal roofs have special coatings that improve the thermal performance with infrared blocking pigments that reflect up to 60-90% of solar radiation back into the atmosphere rather than into your home [source:energy.gov].In contrast, asphalt shingles absorb a lot of heat, and that heat doesn’t stop at the roofline. The warmth makes its way into the structure of your home and increases the indoor temperature by up to 20 to 25 degrees [source: Florida Solar Energy Center].
