What is the overall life cycle cost of the roofing material?
A home is a long-term investment, and homeowners should think of their roof in the same manner. While asphalt can be cheaper than metal initially, spread out over 60 years – which isn’t long at all in housing terms – metal is the clear choice. Consider this: If a metal roof is covering your home, you’ll probably never have to re-roof again. Asphalt requires re-roofing every 15 years or so. And while costs vary from region to region, metal will win the cost battle every time.
Will the material require additional structural roof deck reinforcement?
The natural properties of the steel, aluminum, zinc and coppers usually used in metal roofing are more than 50% lighter than asphalt products and up to 75% lighter than concrete tile. Especially in areas that get heavy snows, metal roofing is the preferred choice as a durable, lightweight roofing alternative.
Does the roof come with a product warranty?
Every product you buy for your home should have a warranty. While most premium asphalt roofs will last somewhere between 12 and 20 years, metal can last more than 60. That’s why Crown Home provides the industry’s widest choice of performance and product warranties for metal roofing.
Are there maintenance costs?
Proper roof maintenance is essential to insure it lasts as long as possible. The benefit of a metal roof, is that maintenance is essentially nothing. With any roof, it is a good idea to occasionally remove any debris – branches, leaves, etc. – that may have fallen onto it. With a metal roof, this usually entails nothing more than hosing the roof down, usually from the ground. Properly installed, a metal roof needs only to be admired.
Does metal roofing cost more than asphalt roofing?
Yes. But you won’t have to replace it and repair costs should be minimal, so after a few decades you’ll have recovered the cost of installation in full. This makes it a good investment if you’re planning to own your current home for a long time. Even if you aren’t, a metal roof will increase the resale value of your home.
A metal roof can save money in other ways as well. It doesn’t heat up as much as asphalt, which will lower your AC bills in summer. Also, it doesn’t catch fire. So in some states, a metal roof can cut homeowners’ insurance premiums by up to 35 percent.
What is the installation cost?
Installing a new roof or re-roofing is a serious and specialized matter. Because there are so many factors when installing roofs, for instance, the roof’s pitch, size and current condition, combined with regional weather patterns and the homeowner’s particular roofing selection it is very difficult to quote costs without actually seeing the project. However, because metal can usually be laid right on top of the existing roof, the clean-up process is quick and easy, eliminating loose nails in the lawn and shards of material to be disposed of.
How much does it weigh?
Less than you might think. It tends to be about 50 to 150 pounds per 100 square feet.
Does it make noise in the rain?
Unless your metal roofing is installed over open rafters, you won’t hear the rain pounding overhead. We fasten metal shingles to your existing roof deck, reducing its ability to produce sound since your attic and insulation are in between. You might find that skylights can be louder than a metal roof, in fact.
Does it have to look like a metal roof?
Not at all. With the right coating, it can look like asphalt, wood or slate. Sometimes this even strengthens it — stone-coated metal can stand up to an impact from a 2.5-inch hailstone or 120-mph winds. Only a direct hit from a tornado or a Category 4 or 5 hurricane has stronger winds.
Is Metal Roofing Prone to Lightning Strikes?
While metal conducts electricity, it doesn’t actually attract lightning. Metal is made of non-combustible material, making it a safer choice in the event of thunderstorms than other roofing materials, like wood.
Metal roofing comes in a variety of colors and styles to match the rest of the home. The metal can be in panels, shakes, states, tiles or shingles.
Today Crown Home offers over 20 custom colors and finishes that can mimic: slate, tile, cedar and other popular variants.
It is longevity and aesthetic appeal rolled in one.
My roof was leaking. And my daughter was ill. I never thought I would get help in such a short timeframe. When I explained my situation to the Crown Home guys, they sent over a unit immediately. I mean immediately. Grateful for their promptness
I had Crown Home install our roof seven years ago. Not a single repair call yet. Doesn’t even need maintenance to be frank! Best decision I and my wife ever made.
