The architecture of our great part of the country lends itself to a variety of roofing options. From traditional wooden shingles, asphalt shingles, tile and metal, depending on your personal preference, there is an option that will work well for your home. While your own taste and desire for curb appeal will play the initial role in selecting a roofing material, there are many different benefits to different types of roofs. Let’s take a look some of the advantages a metal roof can add to your Baton Rouge home.
Longevity: Metal is a highly durable material. It can withstand extensive exposure to the variety of elements it will face in south Louisiana. It is not uncommon for a metal roof to last for over 50 years.
Weather resistant: Again, lending to its longevity, metal roofs hold up exceptionally well to all types of weather. Winds, hail, snow, sleet and rain will leave little to no impact on a quality metal roof. There is no need to worry about mold or any other natural element affecting your roof in our humid climate. Metal roofs are also ideal for reflecting sun and heat away from your home. This is a very helpful feature when you consider your air conditioning bill in our hot summers.
Minimum maintenance: Once your metal roof is installed, it is essentially good to go through its lifetime. These materials won’t lose their shape or integrity.
Fire resistant- Metals won’t burn, so the risk of fire damage from lightning or other elements on or around your roof are greatly diminished.
These are only a handful of the benefits you can enjoy from a quality metal roof for your Baton Rouge home. It’s important to consider how each type of roofing material will enhance your home when it is time to replace your roof.
