Baton Rouge Roofing: Metal Shingles for Your HomeMost people are familiar with metal roofs.  In our part of Louisiana they are very common within our architecture.  Metal roofs have a long lifespan and are fairly simple to maintain.  We are also very familiar with shingled roofs.  Whether they are asphalt shingles or wooden shakes, these are popular choices for homes based on their affordability and look.  Wouldn’t it be great to combine the benefits of both?  Well, metal shingles do exactly that.  Here are some of the great advantages to metal shingles.

  • Durability- Although the initial price is higher than asphalt shingles, the increased lifespan pays for itself.

  • Weather Resistance- These shingles are designed to withstand even the most severe weather that south Louisiana has to offer.  Rains, high winds, hail, even the rare winter ice storm.

  • Curb Appeal- Since these shingles are made of metal they are available in a wide variety of designs, textures, colors and more.  Your roof can be customized designed to fit your taste; from rustic to contemporary. 

  • Long life- Just like a traditional metal roof, metal shingle roofs typically carry a 50 year warranty.  Of course it can far exceed this coverage.  Trusting the installation to a proven and trusted roofing company is very important to get the most from your investment.

  • Energy Efficient- Again, just like a standard metal roof, the installation provided is excellent.  This means the hot summer temperatures stay outside and your cool air-conditioned air stays inside.  On the flipside, during the winter the bitter cold stays out, while your heat stays in; both lowering your monthly energy bill.  Simply put, metal reflects heat during the hot months and absorbs it during our few cold months. Seeing a 20% reduction in your energy bill after installing a metal shingle roof is very common.

  • Low Maintenance- We’ve said it a couple of times, but the durability and lifespan of these roofing materials are essentially maintenance free.  Again without having to spend time and money on repairs or hiring a roofing company, the savings continue to add up.

When you select the right roofing company for your Baton Rouge home or business, your material preference and selection can go a long way in protecting your home .  With that being said, the look of shingles and the durability of metal are available in one solution.  For over 50 Cribbs Incorporated has been helping home and business owners all around the Capital area.  For more information, click here.
