Should I Invest In Stone-Coated Steel Roofing?
When homeowners are considering making an investment to improve their house, the roof is rarely the first part of it that comes to mind.
For many homeowners, the roof is an element of the home that can be easily ignored, especially if theirs has never had any problems.
Nevertheless, they are many advantages to replacing a cheap roof, such as those made of asphalt shingles with a high-quality material such as stone-coated steel.
Here, we run through the main advantages of this decision, and why you may want to organize a roof replacement sooner rather than later.
What is stone-coated steel roofing?
Stone-coated steel roofing is made from steel, which is then coated in stone chips, which are attached to with an acrylic film. The end result is a material which retains the durability and non-reactiveness of steel, with the aesthetically-pleasing elements of stone added on top.
Essentially, homeowners are getting a roof, which is sold, won’t need repairs for decades and looks fantastic.
Why invest in stone-coated steel roofing?
You can expect to pay at least 20 to 30% more for a stone-coated steel roof than you would for an asphalt shingle roof, but you can expect this investment to significantly boost the resale value of your home.
Home buyers are willing to pay more for a house with this type of roofing, not only because it looks so great. They are also swayed by the extra longevity it is likely to provide.
Metal roofs typically last for between 40 and 70 years, depending on the material and the environment it’s exposed to, and the likelihood of not having to organize repairs throughout their ownership is appealing.
Metal roofs are more energy-efficient because the roof reflects most of the sun’s rays, rather than absorbs them. This type of roof handles rain better too. You can expect the sound of raindrops to be much less noticeable on a stone-coated steel roof than on traditional roofing.
The advantages are numerous, so if you have the budget for it, it makes a lot of sense to invest in this modern durable attractive form of roofing.
