3 Reasons Metal Roofing Panels are the Right Choice for Agricultural Roofing
- Metal roofing panels are built to last for a long time. They are durable and can withstand rough weather conditions. Metal roofs can withstand impact from heavy objects such as hail and fallen tree branches. Their average life expectancy is 40-50 years; this is roughly double the life of asphalt. A person who installs a metal roof on their building will most likely never need to install another roof again. Although it may cost more initially, the lifetime costs are much lower.
- Metal roofing panels are a low maintenance alternative to asphalt panels. Metal panels are lightweight, making it easier to install them. Another benefit to metal roofing panels is that they are not affected by mildew, fungus, or moss. There is no risk of termite or rodent infestations. Metal roofing panels do not crack, leak, split, or chip like asphalt roofs often do. These are some of the many reasons that people use metal for their pole building roofs.
- Metal roofing panels will protect your property. The steel panels form a weather-tight seal that prevents leaks. Metal roofing also gives protection from harsh weather conditions. In fact, FEMA recommends metal roofing systems for high wind regions. This weather tight seal is of particular importance for barn roofs and outbuildings to protect assets from inclement weather. There is no need to worry about rain and snow piling up because metal roofs are hard and slippery surfaces which are conducive to shedding rain and snow, as soon as the sun comes out it will fall right off. A bonus of metal roofing is that it is fire resistant and may qualify you for a discount on insurance.
Metal roofing panels are energy efficient and will save money on cooling costs because they repel the heat from the sun. Additionally, steel roofing is 100% recyclable at the end of its life and will reduce needless environmental waste.
