Roof replacement is probably one of the most significant expenses one could have when maintaining a house. Narrowing down your choices for roof options is not that easy. For this process to be as hassle-free as possible, first you must work with qualified roofing contractors that will listen to your needs and recommend options that will work with your surroundings and preference.
The Merits of Metal Roofing
Florida weather has been perennially warm so roofing options for this area must suit its temperature. A good option for warm areas is the use of standing seam metal roofing. This type of roofing makes use of panels made either of Galvalume-coated steel, copper or aluminum, take runs unhindered from top ridge to eaves. It is long lasting, durable and virtually maintenance-free
One of the unique characteristics of this roofing is in the name itself. Its seams are raised above the level of the roofing panel, making it less exposed to potential entry point of moisture. If installed properly, your roof can last for almost 30 years, withstanding even up to 140 mph of winds and snow.
Conversely, it is able to reflect the sun’s rays making it less affected by heat transfer, thereby dubbing it as a “cool” roof replacement option. Together with its heat resistance, it is also fire-resistant as well.
With its sleek look and linear design, standing seam metal roof is a very good option for your next roof, seamless matching a range of home styles, especially Contemporary-Modern properties. Nor to mention that it can be painted in almost any color necessary to complement a home’s overall color scheme.
Unfortunately, standing seam metal roofing can be more expensive than your typical asphalt shingle. However, its high initial cost can be offset by the utility savings you’ll get in the long run.
Finding reputable and qualified residential roofers can be quite daunting because only a few roofers are well-skilled in metal roof installation. With JTI Roofing, however, you won’t have to look anywhere else. Call us today at (407) 901-3600 to request a quote and get started.
