If you were to do a Google search on the most common roofing problems and solutions or top ten lists of things that could go wrong with your roof, they almost all center around one kind of roofing material, your common shingle roof. That’s pretty scary.
Asphalt shingles bring with them a list of known common problems like; leaks and moisture, ponding water, snow damming, shrinkage and blistering, tree damage, wind damage, heat damage, improperly installed flashing and lack of maintenance. You did know your shingle roof needed regular maintenance, didn’t you?
It’s that last one, the lack of maintenance that usually grabs homeowners first. Most people think they have a roof, it lasts a certain amount of time and that’s it. But for shingle roofing, this isn’t the case. You have to constantly be on the lookout for issue and be ready to make repairs.
Properly installed metal roofing alleviates these worries and the need for constant maintenance. It’s the one material that can truly claim the title “worry free”. With the weather being increasingly chaotic and intense, stronger wind storms, bigger hail, rainstorms that are dumping more water every year, you have to choose a roofing material that will stand the test of time and threat of increasingly harsh weather. A standing seam metal roof will protect your home for at least the next 50 years, something asphalt shingle roofing can never claim.
Winter will be here before you know it. Don’t wait until it’s too late to have your roof inspected and if needed, replaced with a standing seam metal roof.
