Advantages of Armadillo’s Metal Roofing Systems

People who choose to have metal roofing installed on their residential or commercial buildings will enjoy the numerous benefits of doing so. Metal roofs are a step in the right direction when it comes to sustainable construction; they are very durable and resilient to harsh weather, they are easy to maintain, and are Maintenance Free. They don't require costly repairs that are needed at some point with other roofing materials. Along with all these great qualities, metal roofs are also easily customizable to match the taste and preferences of the home or business owner.

A roof is one of the most important components of a structure, as it serves to protect all that is inside, and the material chosen to build it is critical to its performance and longevity. The metal roofing trend is picking up speed with all different kinds of construction projects, and there are some very good reasons why. Whether created for a residential, commercial, agricultural or industrial purpose, buildings that have a metal roof installed will see benefits that just aren’t attainable with some of the more traditional construction products. A metal roof gives your home or business longer-lasting protection than traditional roofing does because it stands up better to harsh weather conditions.

Often times, people don’t realize how cost-efficient metal roofing can be because the initial expense might be a little more than it is for other products. However, the return on investment is sure to outweigh that initial payment for material and labor. This is because Armadillo metal roofs don’t require any maintenance, eliminating the costs of upkeep and repairs. Metal roofs also have insulating properties (helping to keep a building warm in colder months) and the ability to deflect hot UV rays during the summer months. Both of these capabilities contribute to lower heating and air conditioning bills.

Reliable and Resilient Material

Armadillo Metals roofs are constructed to last much longer than other roofing materials and hold up against harsh outdoor elements. Metal does not hold moisture like traditional roofing systems do, thus moss, mould or mildew will not be a problem. Armadillo metal roofs have a 35 year warranty on the paint and metal that won’t corrode, crack or overall deteriorate. In addition, fire resistance is a safety feature of metal roofing that is significant to note.

Versatile in Colours

With the increasing popularity of metal roofing has also come the development of a wide array of colour choices. Armadillo has three available metal suppliers; each with their own array of on average 25-35 colour choices of metal. With the rise in popularity of metal roofs, roofs are constructed to be appealing and to satisfy a property owner’s need for uniqueness while being customized to suitably fit personal taste, a certain structure’s style and the neighborhood it will be placed in.

Eco-Friendly Properties

Metal roofing is an obvious choice for those looking to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. Aside from their energy efficient contributions mentioned above, metal roofs are made with recycled content and will, in turn, be recyclable whenever they are no longer in use, unlike asphalt that ends up in landfills. They also make it easier to harvest rainwater, which can be used to conserve water in many ways in and around the home. Rainwater gathering is cleaner with less debris allowing the water to be utilized for washing machines and toilets, as well as for watering lawns and gardens. These roofs are also very solar panel compatible with a S-5 clip, ensuring that no moisture will be contained under solar panel, thus eliminating the chance of rotting or moss build up.

Long-Term Value

Metal roofs add long-term value to a building not only because they last for so long without any maintenance, but also because they can add actual value to the home's resale price.

The Costs of Metal Roofing: A Sound Investment

Like any home improvement project, installing a metal roof is an investment. Unlike lots of home improvements, however, adding a metal roof is an investment that yields significant returns:

  • A metal roof is a home improvement investment that increases your home’s value immediately and holds its value over time.
  • A typical roof replacement cycle is 12-17 years – more or less, depending on your roof materials, weather conditions, proper maintenance and other factors. But the life expectancy of metal roofing is longer than many traditional roofing materials, which means you will save money on re-roofing costs.
  • A metal roof will also save you money on your home energy bills by improving your home’s energy efficiency.
  • A metal roof is also an affordable alternative to costly, messy temporary roofing products. It’s a classic “invest in quality” home improvement.
  • Metal roofing stands strong against some of Mother Nature’s most brutal elements, which can cause wear and tear on other roof systems.

The cost-effectiveness, maintenance free quality product, attractiveness, and environmentally friendly nature of Armadillo’s metal roofing system give property owners and builders who have this system a distinct advantages over those who opt to use more traditional roof compositions.
