Is Metal Roofing Right for You?

Is Metal Roofing Right for You?Is metal roofing a viable option for your home? Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing type, but not the only one. Tile, clay, and even wood shake are on roofs in homes across the U.S. Metal is another option and has many benefits. Take a look at the pros and cons to see if it’s the right choice for your house.

Pros of Metal Roofing

The most significant benefit of metal roofing is its durability. It’s referred to as forever roofing because it lasts so much longer than any other material, up to 60 years for high-end roofs. It stands up to extreme wind and weather, changes in temperature, and even snow and ice. It’s also resistant to pests, fungus, mold, and moss. Critters such as raccoons and squirrels can’t damage the metal material, and you don’t have to worry about them decaying, shrinking, or breaking down. And maybe most important of all, the metal is fire-resistant.

Cons of Metal Roofing

With so many benefits, it’s hard to imagine a long list of cons to metal roofing. And guess what? There aren’t many cons. The only disadvantage to this type of roofing material is the initial cost. It is more expensive than other roofing materials but it generally works out to be less expensive on a per-year basis because it lasts so long. And it could save you money on your insurance costs because of its longevity and fire-retardant properties.

3 Easy Solutions to Fix Your Leaky Roof Before Replacing It

3 Easy Solutions to Fix Your Leaky Roof Before Replacing ItDo you have a leaky roof? Signs of a leak include water stains on upstairs ceilings or moisture in your attic. There are ways to fix your leaky roof instead of replacing it. Take a look at these three easy solutions.

#1: Managing Curled Shingles

When shingles age or have exposure to extreme weather, they can curl, leaving the underside of your roof open to water damage. Use roofing cement to secure the shingles and hold them in place. It’s easier to do when it’s warm out, and the shingles are more pliable.

#2: Replacing Shingles

Roof shingles can crack, come loose, or fall off with enough wear and tear. Missing shingles are one of the most common reasons for roof leaks. Remove the damaged shingles and replace them with new ones. You’ll need to scrape off any old roofing cement before installing the new shingles. Be sure to secure the shingles with the right size roofing nails and fresh roofing cement.

#3: Repair the Flashing

Flashing is the metal that goes around chimneys and vents on your roof. If you have a leak near or under the flashing, repairing the seal can often fix the problem. New caulk around the edges of the metal will sometimes do the trick. If not, you’ll need to replace the flashing and potentially the shingles around it.

Repairing your roof can be a temporary solution to stop and prevent leaks. Though it sounds simple enough, roof repair can be challenging for the inexperienced. Instead of managing the repairs yourself, reach out to the experienced professionals at Premiere Roofing and put a stop to those leaks now.
