Metal roofing has been the go-to for commercial buildings for years, but its excellent strength, durability and fire resistance make it a great option for Orlando residential roofing as well. A popular choice for homes for centuries, a metal roof for your home brings a world of choices; from design options to types of metal to a rainbow of color options.
There isn’t a residential roofing system that can withstand every possible elemental force of nature. That being said, one of the great benefits of a metal roof is that they are fireproof. They don’t burn or spread combustible elements. They’ve also actually been shown to withstand excessive rainfall and extreme wind speeds.
A metal roof is shiny because it naturally reflects sunlight. But an interesting thing about a metal roofing system is that is retains little heat from that sunlight (shiny AND effective). This means that your roof will retain less heat and because of this fact everything beneath it stays cooler for longer. Pretty handy for the extended warmth we get throughout the year in Central Florida. Simply put, a metal roofing system can use less energy to cool your home, saving you money every month.
