Replacing a home’s roof isn’t something homeowners want to do very often, if ever.

But no roof material lasts forever so it’s important to know how to choose a roof that will give you the longest lifespan possible. Metal roofing is a great option because it has a highly attractive lifespan. Here are some of the other benefits you get from metal roofing that make it last longer.

Longevity

Metal roofs can last anywhere from 40-70 years depending on the exact material you choose, and maintenance you perform.

Durability

Metal roofs can sustain wind gusts, some up to 140 mph and they won’t corrode or crack in the rain. In Wyoming weather, a metal roof will often allow snow to slide off the roof, keeping the weight load at a steadier number, and usually preventing the maintenance of snow removal.  While metal roofs should be inspected regularly, they don’t need costly maintenance very often.

Safety

You never know what Wyoming storms are going to bring and metal roofs won’t spark or ignite into flames if there is fire nearby or if they are struck by lightning. Debris is also known to slide off these roofs, preventing the homeowner from the extremely unsafe habit of trying to access their roof in order to remove tree limb debris.

If you see debris on your roof you think should be removed, do it the safest way and contact your licensed roofing contractor to come remove it and make sure it didn’t penetrate any of your roofing material.

Energy Efficiency

You want any upgrade you make to your home to be efficient and metal roof reflect solar heat to reduce your cooling costs inside.

Environmentally Friendly

Metal roofs have a large part recycled content and don’t waste as much as other styles.
