Metal roofing has been increasing in popularity for the past several years. In fact, it is the second most common type of roofing material. They are ‘greener’ than many other types of roofs, which attracts people. What attracts many more is the fact that it is fantastic for your wallet. Metallic roofs are superior insulators, so you save a bundle on air conditioning and heating. This is especially important when you have the air conditioning running in the extreme Florida heat. Another big reason that it helps your wallet is that it lasts a long time. When properly taken care of, these roofs can last up to 70 years. You can be sure that you will be taken care of the whole time you have your home.

Just as you make sure your company will survive in the future, when you have a stable roof over your business you can be positive that you are in good hands for a very long time.
Metal roofs are exceptionally durable. Everyone down here in South Florida is aware of hurricane season, and when you have that much more of a sturdy roof, you are 100% safe. Metal roofing does not sustain much damage, even when the wind is gusting at up to 140 miles per hour. Many steel, copper, and even aluminum roofs are impact resistant. When a great and terrible storm flings a tree at your business, nothing will come of it in many cases.
When you run a business, you need to focus on your bottom line. As your local Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and Deerfield Beach roofer, we understand that better than anyone. One of the biggest advantages of a metallic roof is that they are incredibly efficient. These roofs can reduce energy costs by up to 25%. Lots of businesses talk the talk about being green. When you have a durable roof, you can walk the walk. The metal, most of the time, is around 95% recycled, and when you need to tear the building down you can recycle the material again.
Residential Metal Roofing
Aastro Roofing will gladly provide you with new metal roofing for your home. All of South Florida thrives on real estate, and the addition of a roof made with a sturdy material, such as galvanized steel, can do quite a lot for the value of your home. The initial investment will prove to be worth it, as these roofs can more than stand the test of time. When you want to sell your home, you can be sure that you are getting the highest price you can.
Even if you do not wish to sell your home, a metal roof is a fantastic choice. It is impossible for metal to burn at the same temperatures that shingles do, so this makes your home more fire resistant. You and your family will be safe during a lightning strike or wildfire. You still need to perform maintenance on this type of roofing, but it does not require the periodic cleaning and inspecting that other types do.
People in South Florida are very deliberate when it comes to looks. Metallic roofs are very customizable. It is your best choice if you want a home that looks prim and stately, or a house that is cozy and comfortable. Should you select a metal roof, you can paint it any color you want.
There are a few other considerations you should keep in mind when thinking about what sort of roof you choose. Over the hot Florida summers, the metal will expand as the temperature rises. Only a professional, experienced roofing contractor can be trusted to provide the best service. When weighing out your roofing options, you should also consider that metal roofing lasts two or three times longer than an asphalt shingle roof does. Although upfront costs may seem daunting, it is more cost-efficient in the long run. Finally, in certain areas, people are concerned about lightning striking the roof. The specific alloys in metal roofs do not attract lightning any more than another type of roof does, so there is no need to be concerned about that.
