Metal Tile Roofing


Metal tile roofing has doubled in the past five years with a growth rate of about 15% annually. This is because the material itself is more capable of protecting your home against destructive weather conditions.

To prove that, studies have shown that it can last at least two to three times longer than an asphalt roof. That is about 40 to 60 years. Since it is also given anti-rusting treatment, it will not corrode.

The world is well aware of climate change. Another benefit of it is that when it is damaged, it can by recycled and used again. This means it is environment friendly and is good to have either in your home or in your office. Unlike wood or other traditional materials used for roofing, it is not prone to insects, mold or rot so you do not have to apply any harmful chemicals that could damage the environment.

Having it for your home also saves energy. This means you can reduce the cooling costs by almost 40% together with the help of reflective paints that have energy saving properties. But of course, this still depends where you live. The paint used in it reflects instead of absorbing the sun’s rays so less heat enters the structure.

It does not require a lot of maintenance. You just have to go up there and sweep away accumulated leaves or other debris and inspect the roof top ancillaries and air conditioners to be sure that it is properly drained and supported.

You also save money when it is time to pay your income tax thanks to the US energy Policy Act of 2005. This allows homeowners a tax credit when they decide to use it in their homes as long as they meet the Energy Star program requirements. It is available in different colors. This means you will be able to find one that matches the color of your walls. If you want to change it, you don’t have to replace the entire thing but simply paint over the old color.

Should you decide to get metal tile roofing, make sure you get a warranty from the manufacturer. Steel vendors who comply with such regulations put coil numbers on each item so you and they will know when exactly were the metal purchased. If this is not present, you have no protection even if they say that such a warranty exists.
