Metal Roofing is Becoming The Next Big Thing Again

Apart from being easy on the eyes and being the longest lasting roof system on the market today there are many appealing characteristics of today's metal roofing. This fella says it pretty well.

By David Zuckerman

Over the last several years, metal roofs have grown increasingly popular with consumers. The Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA), a nonprofit association of metal manufacturers and contractors, estimates metal's share of the roofing market at around 8%, with a projected 1% annual growth.

In the past, sales of metal roofs for single-family homes were concentrated in regions where specific conditions demand a utilitarian approach to building. Metal roofs are fire resistant, hold up well in storms and against hail, and shed snow easily; the southeastern hurricane coast, western wildfire zones, and snow-heavy areas in the west and northeast have historically seen the majority of metal sales. Now, however, thanks in part to a public relations blitz by the MRA and the growth of mainstream demand for green products, metal roof sales are expanding nationwide.

Contractors have taken up the banner, too.

There are a number of things to consider while choosing appropriate roofing contractors for your house. You don’t buy yourself a roof every day, so it is very important to do some research before selecting one for your house. Cost and design should of course be your priority, but having the right insulation, which is also environmental friendly, would be a wise decision. Consulting some good roofing contractors will also help you make the right choice.

It should be. I mean, considering all the troubles that your roof faces, metal roofs are the best available options. You can't expect shingles to last as long as metal roofs. Make that wise choice!
