When it comes to increasing the value of your home, you can’t go wrong with getting a metal roof installed. While there are some drawbacks (as with anything in life), the benefits far outweigh them. Metal roofs are one of the absolute best additions to your home, on both a value and aesthetic level. If you’re still skeptical about metal roofing in Jacksonville, read on for a complete look at the benefits of getting a metal roof.

Durable, No Matter the Condition
If you live in Jacksonville, that means you’re probably at least a little nervous about the upcoming hurricane season. Well don’t worry–a metal roof can more than take the harsh elements of a hurricane! Unlike the usual material, asphalt, it takes a lot more to rip off a metal roof from the house it’s built on. Whether it is hail, strong winds, flying debris, etc., metal roofs are more than up for the challenge.

Good for the Environment
Compared to the other roofing materials on the market, metal is considered by far the most eco-friendly. For one, the majority of roofing materials contain around 30-60% recycled materials and is completely recyclable itself. On top of that, if you feel bad about removing an asphalt roof and potentially harming the environment through that disposal, don’t worry. Metal roofs can be installed right on top of normal roof materials, completely removing the environmental risk that comes with disposal.

Energy Saver
Something that a lot of people don’t know is that metal roofing can actually save you around 40% of your annual energy costs. Most metal roofing companies coat the roofing in a reflective solar material that minimizes heat buildup and reduces the cost of air conditioning, since the aforementioned AC unit won’t have to work as hard to cool down the house. This means that the AC unit doesn’t have to work as hard, and that means lower energy costs for you.

And if you want some help in installing the metal roof that you want, no one will get the job done better than 1st Coast Metal Roofing Supply.
