So metal roofing lasts, but for how long? Unlike other roofing solutions that only last 10 – 20 years, metal roofing can last anywhere between 30 to 50 years, depending on the material you’ve chosen with your experienced ProCraft contractor.
Metal roofing is very durable, which is a large reasons as to why it lasts so long. Metal roofing can take a lot of wear-and-tear from Mother Nature, whether it’s lightning in a storm or sparks from a nearby fire. With metal roofing, you are protected from these hazardous elements, providing safety to the people or things that you are trying to shelter.
The durability of metal roofing is what also makes it so easy to care for. While some roofing solutions need more attention, metal roofing would mostly benefit from a spray from a hose from time to time, in order to keep it looking its best. Beyond that, not much care is needed.
The longevity and lack of required maintenance for metal roofing are both huge benefits for owners of commercial property that they want to require little care, for little cost. Of course, there can be downsides of having a metal roof, depending on what kind of structure it’s going on top of. For instance, metal roofing can create a lot of noise in a rain or hail storm. If your commercial property is an apartment complex or an office building, this might be a problem for your tenants, as they try to sleep or concentrate on their work. But if you’re interested in installing metal roofing on a shed or warehouse, these downsides aren’t really a concern at all.
Another issue with metal roofing is that it can get damaged, most notably by hail. This will depend on the type of metal you use to roof your property but some of the softer metals will dent when pelted by larger hail stones. Some metal roofs can also be subject to rust, as well, but this will be determined not only by the type of metal used, but also on the quality of the installation.
