Metal roofing certainly has its benefits. Right now, with spring just about here and summer around the corner, it is a very good time to convert your old shingled roof to a metal roof. Here are three reasons why.
Late Season Snowfalls Will Not Have a Prayer
There has been a lot of late-season snow falling this year. Many of the northern and Midwestern states have been buried in heavy April snows. As soon as it melts, you could put a metal roof on your house. Guess what happens then? If it snows anymore this "spring," the snow slides right off the roof with absolutely no damage to your roof! You do not have to pull the snow down with shovels, or worry about the weight of the snow on the roof because it slides right off of a metal roof.
When You Turn on Your A/C, It Will Not Escape the Roof
In a month or two, when you turn on your air conditioning, the cooled air cannot and will not escape through the hot roof. Instead, the metal roof keeps your cooled air right where you want it. Of course, that will only happen if you put the metal roof on your home in the next few weeks.
There Are NUMEROUS Deals for Metal Roofing During Tax Refund Season
With some of the late refund checks coming in the end of April all through May and part of June, roofing contractors and the like are cutting deals left and right. Keep your eyes and ears open to spot a metal roofing deal, and then you can use your tax refund to put a new roof on your home. Best of all, most metal roofs have a lifetime guarantee and/or a thirty-year warranty, which means you probably will never replace the roof on your home again if you do it right now.
Start Shopping Now
Roofing season has already begun, but it is not too late to hire a roofing contractor. You have to shop around to get quotes and find good deals, anyway. Even if you live where there is still a little snow on the ground, shopping for your roofing contractor now is still a good idea. It will help you get your roofing project scheduled ahead of many other homeowners who might be thinking about purchasing a new metal roof as well.
