Metal Roofing: Fad or Future?
There was a time in the not that distant past, metal roofing had a largely commercial-only appeal. But over the most recent decade, metal roofs have started moving out to the suburbs and rising in popularity for residential roofing projects. Why has metal roofing gained so much steam in recent years? It all boils down to a few things.
The first is durability. Above almost everything else, homeowners want a roof that’s reliable. Luckily for homeowners who buy through Honest Abe Roofing, not only is the roof reliable..it’s guaranteed to last a lifetime. You will never roof again if you choose Honest Abe Roofing for your roofing system replacement.
As recently as 2016, metal roofing had grown to 14% of residential roofing which was more than double where it was just a few short years prior. What roofing system product seems to be dropping as metal roofing soars? It looks largely to be asphalt shingles. Homeowners look at asphalt shingles as expensive, high maintenance and not extremely durable. Durability and functionality goes such a long way for homeowners who are in need of a new roofing system for their home.
As metal roofing rises in popularity, so does the variety of colors and textures available for homeowners who are into the aesthetic nature of their roofing system along with the durability. Homeowners want choices. Honest Abe Roofing has a unique Design Center that allows homeowners to customize their roofing system to their exact specifications. We can match your roofing system based on the specific color you want.
Along with durability and the ability to customize, homeowners also appear attracted to metal roofing solutions because of their energy efficient qualities. Despite what can be a larger upfront cost than other options, metal roofing offers energy efficiency that transfers into lower energy bills throughout the life of the roofing system. So while you may up front for the product, it generates savings for you for its lifetime.
