Top Four Benefits of Metal Roofing for Your Arizona Home

Replacing your Arizona roof is a large undertaking.  There is a significant amount of money and time that goes into the process, so it’s important to make sure you are getting exactly what you want.

Metal roofing is a fantastic option if you are looking to replace your Arizona home’s roof.  There are many advantages to this material that give you a great return on investment.  What are these advantages? We’re glad you asked! 

Top Four Benefits of Metal Roofing Here in Arizona 

  1. Save On Utilities

Though some hesitate at the up-front cost of a metal roof, this material often saves a significant amount of money on air conditioning.  Metal roofing reflects sunlight, ensuring that you are not wasting cooling resources. 

In fact, you can save up to 40% of annual utilities cost simply by opting for metal for your Arizona roofing.

  1. Help The Environment

Traditional asphalt roofs are made from petroleum products, meaning that they rely on fossil fuels to be produced.  When they need to be replaced after 15-20 years, those toxins end up in a landfill.

Metal roofs, however, are made from materials that are much more sustainable.  Most metal roofs are made from up to 25% recycled materials.  They last 50-75 years, meaning that you will not consume any new roofing material for three times the amount of time as a traditional asphalt roof.

Additionally, when your metal roof is at the end of its life, it will be 100% recyclable. 

  1. Hold Up In Extreme Weather

Unlike asphalt roofing, metal roofing is not prone to melting or warping in the Arizona sun.  It is durable against wind, sand and storms that come through as well. 

In fact, the only relatively weak spot in a metal roof is the possibility of rust (if steel).  However, if you properly maintain your metal roof, this should not be an issue.

  1. A Worthwhile Investment

As we mentioned, metal roofs will help to save on utility costs.  The long lifespans mean you save a significant amount of money by not having to replace your roof every 15-20 years.

What’s more, these roofs are a great draw for buyers.  The peace of mind and low maintenance upkeep they provide allow you to increase the selling price of your home.
