Four Reasons to Switch to a Metal Roof for Your Houston Home or Business
When most Houston residents think about roofing, the word that comes to mind is probably ‘chore’ or ‘hassle.’ While your roof plays an important role in keeping you and your loved ones safe from the elements and your home structurally sound, it’s not something most people think about on the day-to-day.
So when the roof of your home starts looking a little long in the tooth—with patches of broken shingles or maybe some overall wear and tear—there are a ton of reasons to switch to a metal roof from your existing asphalt model.
Sure, you’ll pay more for a metal roof up front than you would for asphalt shingles. But like pretty much everything else in life, if you take the time and invest money up front, you’ll see significant dividends down the line. Like these benefits:
- A Metal Roof Reduces Your Energy Usage This is perhaps the most exciting benefit—and the most surprising. Think about it: have you ever touched a piece of metal that’s been out in the sun all day? It was hot, right? The same principle applies, no matter what material you end up choosing. Metal’s a much more efficient conductor of heat than asphalt or composite shingles. Where this shines is in the winter, where you’ll pay less to keep your home at a reasonable temperature.
- Metal Roofs Can Be Repainted Any Color The best part of a metal roof is that if you don’t like the color, you’re never stuck with it for long. Have you ever tried painting shingles? If the answer is no, there’s a good reason for that: it doesn’t work. But metal doesn’t require additional primer, and the coat is guaranteed to stick well. Imagine painting your roof every season to suit your mood. Sure, it’s overkill, but the option is there.
- Metal Roofing Lasts a Lifetime There’s a reason you see metal roofing on old colonial-era buildings and monuments: it lasts. Copper and steel are your best bets for longevity; odds are you’ll sell the house before you ever need to replace the roofing. When you consider how much money you’ll save over a lifetime of not needing to pay a roofer for maintenance, or to patch a hole in the shingles, or to install a new roof, it makes for big dividends over time. Sure, asphalt shingles may be three times cheaper, but considering you’ll need to replace them five times over your home’s lifetime—is that really so much of a bargain after all?
- Wide Variety of Styles and Materials to Choose From You can create your dream look for your Houston home or business’s exterior with whatever metal suits your heart’s desire. Okay, so gold would cost a fortune, and wouldn’t be all that great at protecting your home from the elements anyway. But zinc? Copper? Titanium? The only limit is the borders of the periodic table!
Signs Your Roof Needs Repairs
At Texas Roofing & Leak Repair, we know how to spot a roof that needs immediate professional attention. It is our job, after all.
We can’t expect every homeowner in the Houston area to be able to diagnose every roofing issue. Roof maintenance and repairs require the skill of professional and licensed roofing contractors. However, there are a few signs every homeowner can look out for. If any of these things are noticed, consider it an indicator that you should call the expert roofers at Texas Roofing & Leak Repair immediately.
- Buckling Shingles: One of the easiest signs to spot on your roof are buckling or curling shingles. Identifying bad shingles doesn’t even require you or another family member to climb up your rickety old ladder. What causes buckling and curling shingles? Well, there are several possible causes. Faulty Installation by an inexperienced or careless roofer can be one cause. The age of the roof can be another factor. Even the most expertly installed roofing shingles will begin to fail their home after fifteen or twenty years. If the roofing underlayment has become wet, the shingles may fail to adhere properly as well. Once shingles begin to buckle it is only a matter of time before they detach themselves from your roof or even break. When you notice buckling shingles, give Texas Roofing & Leak Repair a call!
- Granules in Your Gutters: If you’re a homeowner who cleans their own gutters, be sure to check for little shingle granules. If you find granules and pieces of shingles in your gutter system, it is a good sign that your roof needs the attention of a professional shingle repair team.
- Plant Life: Moss, plant-life and foliage are all great things, but do you think they should be growing from the roof of your home? Probably not. Moss on a rooftop is a sure thing that your roof is extremely moist. The likely scenario is that the area underneath your shingles is rotting. Roof rot is not something that should be ignored. If you suspect your roof is rotting, call Texas Roofing & Leak Repair immediately. We will determine whether we have to replace the moss-covered shingles or also replace the boards beneath them. If ignored, the roof rot could increase and result in major structural damages to your home.
- Water in the Attic: If you ever suspect there are problems with your roof, inspect the situation from the inside of your home first. From your attic, examine the eaves. Check to see if any light is coming through any cracks. Also check if there are any moisture patches or stains. While you’re up there, you can also examine the attic’s insulation. If it is damp, your roof is most likely leaking.
- Seals and Flashing: What’s flashing? Flashing are the pieces of metal that seal off the joints of the vents and chimneys that protrude from your rooftop. If the flashing on your roof has broken its seal, or it is rusting, you likely have a leaky roof.
