One of the major selling qualities of metal roofing is its low maintenance.
In addition to adding more value to your home and its sheer durability, homeowners with metal roofing also enjoy virtually no maintenance to keep their roof in tip-top shape.
This means that people not only get a cost-effective roofing solution designed to last for decades, but that they can also enjoy their roof with minimal input and cost required for major repair or maintenance tasks.
In comparison, other roofing materials are subject to a number of problems, unique to the type of material. That could mean:
- Tile roof installation can be more costly as individual tiles are installed, driving up the time required by your installer
- They are also heavy yet brittle, and require close inspection to determine cracks or leaks
- Due to their weight, they may require reinforcement, which again drives up the cost (and time) of installation
Low maintenance metal roofing is a cost-effective solution, helping you save not only during initial installation, but also in the long term!
What makes metal roofing so low maintenance?
We’ve talked many times in the past about the various benefits of metal roofing, including:
- How it helps the environment
- How it can increase the value of your home
- How it’s the ideal choice for Bayside homes close to the ocean
One of the benefits we return to time and time again is how little maintenance metal roofing requires.
But we haven’t yet taken a deeper dive into the “how” behind metal roofing’s low maintenance appeal.
Metal roofing is strong and durable
Metal roofing is perhaps best known for its immense durability. It’s made of high-quality steel, and in COLORBOND’s, case, is coated in aluminium, zinc, and magnesium alloy.
This means it is not only resistant to damage from rain and storms, but also our harsh Aussie sun.
This is especially evident when compared to traditional ties, which as mentioned above, are brittle and can be easily broken or cracked.
Metal roofing combined with its unique coating results in a strong, durable, and long-lasting roof material. That means no peeling, blistering, or cracking of roofing materials and layers.
Metal roofing will last for decades
Did you know that metal roofing can last anywhere from three to seven times longer than a typical asphalt shingle roof?
That’s quite an astonishing stat – and to think, you can achieve this with little maintenance, too!
Long-lasting roofing without the risk of replacement or costly repairs after just a few years? Metal roofing helps you achieve that!
Metal roofing requires less cleaning
Maintenance is not an issue to metal roofing as less cleaning is required to ensure its longevity (and to maintain its great look).
Metal roofing has an added advantage of fewer nooks and crannies, making it harder for elements like moss and mould to take hold. This also means a reduced risk of water entry.
Metal roofing is easy to install
Metal roofing installation requires a team of specialised roofing pros, equipped with tools and knowledge to deliver customised metal roofing solutions for your latest project.
For those very same reasons, not just anyone can install metal roofing safely and effectively.
However, those who can have perfected their technique, delivering outstanding value when it comes to installation times.
Compared to tiles, too, metal roofing can be installed (where permitted) in large sheets, requiring less time for specialised cutting.
