Metal roofing in Salem is one of the most popular choices, and that’s for good cause; the roofs last for more than 30 years, they’re durable, and they help home and business owners save money on heating and cooling bills. In addition to all of that, we’re a preferred metal roofing company, so we’re able to offer our customers with the best warranties that our manufacturers provide.
Metal roofing is a great investment, and offers great value for your money.
With high, natural reflectivity and opportunities to install roofing insulation underneath, metal roofing in Salem can save homeowners up to 15% per month on heating and cooling costs. On top of that, homeowners who opt for a metal roof are often eligible for a $500 tax credit from the federal government.
If you’re planning on staying in your home for a long period of time, or passing your home down to your children or other family members, consider the lifespan of the roof in your decision as well. A traditional asphalt composition roof will last around 20 years, give or take a few. A metal roof often lasts between 30 and 50 years, meaning you would likely buy at least two composition roofs before you would have to replace your first metal roof. Metal roofs provide long-term savings if you look at them as an investment, but they do come at a slightly higher price tag than a composition roof.
Metal roofing has a low impact on the environment.
We’ve found many of our customers are looking for Salem metal roofing companies that put an emphasis on protecting the environment. We work with Bruce & Dana, Taylor Metal, SteelROCK roofing products, and Metallion Industries, all of which have the ability to source their metal roofing materials from 90% recycled material. Additionally, once our metal roofs are torn off after they reach the end of their lifetime, they are 100% recyclable, meaning that our roofs have very little environmental impact. On top of the re-usability and ability to be recycled, metal roofing cuts your energy usage, which also contributes toward shrinking your carbon footprint.
Salem metal roofing is naturally resistant some of the area’s most common roofing nuisances: algae and moss.
While no roof is entirely immune to algae, moss, and fungal growth, metal roofing is often galvanized or coated, which offers natural anti-fungal properties. A metal roofing surface is more difficult for large patches of moss, fungus, or algae to grow on than a traditional composition roof, which means the maintenance and cleaning costs can be kept down.
Metal roofing offers some of the greatest variety in style and color
There are a great deal of metal roofing options available, including the most common, locking metal panels, which come in almost any color you would ever want, and stone coated galvanized roofing tiles. The SteelRock metal roofing tiles can give your home the classic look and feel of a stone tile roof or wood shake roof with the durability, warranty options, and cost-saving features of a metal roof, and these also come with several color options.
