Roofs can be expensive. But what if you could get a roof that would save you money?

Professionally installed metal roofs can lower the cost of future roof replacement and reduce energy costs. You may even be eligible for an insurance discount.

Here are five ways a metal roof can help you save money and make your investment worthwhile for your home or business.

Reduce replacement costs

Metal roofs last up to three times longer than asphalt roofs so you can offset your initial investment by having significantly lower (or even eliminated depending on how long you intend to keep the building) replacement expenses.

Allows you to add solar panels

Metal is more durable than any other roofing material. Solar panels can be attached using brackets or clamps with no holes and are easy to install.

Get your energy bills

Metal roofing materials can help reduce energy consumption because they reflect heat rather than absorb it. Your home’s energy consumption can be reduced by using reflective coatings. Some homeowners even see a 20% reduction in their energy bills.

Get home or business insurance

Metal roofs can withstand hail damage better than asphalt shingles. A metal roof with a high rating means that it can withstand hail up to 2 inches in diameter without sustaining any damage. This means that you can lower your insurance premiums.

On taxes

Although you might not know it, installing a metal roof that is energy efficient on your home or company could qualify you for a tax credit.

These are five reasons why you should have a metal roofing installed on your house or business. Old Time Roofing is a reputable roofing company that has years of experience installing metal roofs. This will ensure your investment lasts for many years.
