Metal roofing has been growing in popularity among South Jersey homeowners and business owners due to its superior durability, energy efficiency, low maintenance costs, and unique attractiveness. Metal roofs are highly weather resistant, can stand up to high winds and hail, and have a lifespan of up to 70 years, making them an excellent choice for any South Jersey home or commercial building.
You have many choices for metal roofing for your South Jersey home or business, as metal roofs come in a variety of materials and styles, such as aluminum, steel (including galvanized steel), corrugated metal and standing seam metal. Each type of metal roofing has its pros and cons. The professional South Jersey metal roofing experts at ABC Group Contractors can answer any questions you may have and determine the best type of metal roofing for your South Jersey home or business.
Metal roofs require very little maintenance and can withstand extreme South Jersey weather conditions such as high wind, heavy rain and hail. It's somewhat of a myth that metal roofs can get dented from hail. Most hailstorms, especially those in the South Jersey area, don't produce hail that's large enough to affect a metal roof. Even if the hail is larger and creates some denting, it's just a cosmetic issue that will not cause the roof to fail. Puncturing, however, will indeed cause a roof to fail, but this is highly unlikely in the case of hail, especially in South Jersey.
Metal roofs are very energy efficient, as they reflect the sun's rays, resulting in a 10% to 25% reduction in your cooling costs in the summer. And with our hot South Jersey summers, the energy savings can add up! A white or light-colored metal roof will increase the reflective properties of the metal roof, making it even more energy efficient. The high insulation properties of a metal roof can also keep your South Jersey home or commercial building warmer in the winter, reducing your energy costs even more.
Metal roofing is considered to be safer than asphalt shingles, so much so that many insurance companies offer discounts for metal roofs. Metal roofing is rated safer for wind, hail and rain, and is even fire resistant, as well as being impervious to rot, fungus, and insect damage. It's no wonder so many South Jersey homeowners and business owners choose metal roofing!
Metal roofing usually comes in panels that are easy to install on your South Jersey residential or commercial building. The installation process is also much faster than traditional roofing materials like asphalt shingles, making it an affordable, long term solution. Additionally, there are no hazardous by-products or materials that are released during installation, making it a safer and more eco-friendly option.
Though metal roofs tend to cost more upfront than traditional roofing materials, they can easily be seen as an investment for your South Jersey home or commercial building. Why?
