When building or renovating a house, one of the biggest choices that homeowners face is what type of roofing material they should use. Traditionally, many people have gone with tiles or shingles for their roofs. While these traditional methods of roofing serve their purpose, there is another affordable, long-lasting option that parodies all the traditional advantages and more.
Metal roofing is a highly attractive and durable roofing material which offers the savvy homeowner a huge range of advantages, some which you may not even be aware of! Tin, zinc, aluminium, copper, or galvanised steel roofs are available in a large selection of colours and can be fitted to any type of home.
Environmentally friendly, energy efficient and long lasting, metal roofs are a fantastic choice for builders, first homeowners or investors. Today, we’re going to provide you with just a few of the many reasons why a metal roof may be the best way for you to protect your home.

A Highly Durable Roofing Solution
Making the decision to build a home from the ground up or to embark upon a renovation project is a massive commitment both in terms of time and money. To be sure that your hard work and investment stand the test of time, you need to build using hard-wearing and long-lasting materials. Metal roofs are well-known for their ability to withstand the elements and can last for more than half a century in the right environment.
The Perfect Roof for a Safer Home
Said simply, metal roofing is the best material to withstand the weather at all times of the year. Metal roofs consistently outperform other roofing materials during severe winds. As it is not a porous material, metal roofing does not absorb moisture so will withstand even the heaviest rain and hail storm. Finally, since it is non-combustible, a metal roof will never catch fire or feed an existing fire.
Efficient and Environmentally Friendly
If you are worried about your impact on the environment, then choose metal roofing! As metal is a reflective material, it can deflect solar heat keeping your home cooler during the heat of summer. This means that a metal roof will help you to cut down on energy bills. Most modern metal roofs are made from recycled materials and can be recycled as often as needed, making them a clear winner in the eco-friendly stakes.
