3 Reasons to Upgrade to Metal Roofing This Summer
Temperatures are rising once again in Australia as the summer has come. In Sydney, makesafe roofing is gaining popularity with home renovations.
In 2017 alone, 62% of Australian homes underwent renovations according to Property Update. With people staying more time at home during the COVID-19 Pandemic, it is no surprise if homeowners choose to repair, upgrade, extend, or beautify their homes even further. As a result, landscaping, interior design, and even roof and gutter repairs in Sydney have been quite busy lately.
But the most important part of any renovation or repair is the roof. It’s the most critical part of any house that is why we often say “a roof over our heads” which means shelter, a basic necessity in our lives. If you are still using a non-metal roof, this is a perfect time to make that shift to metal roofing because you don’t want to miss out on these great benefits.
Extend roof lifespan
Most non-metal roofs require more frequent repairs or even replacements. And while most houses have roof insurance, non-metal roofs should care for every 10-20 years. Metal or makesafe roofing can last twice more than non-metal roofing which is a lifespan of 50 years or more. Metal roofs can basically last most of your lifetime.
Prepare for extreme weather
The weather in Sydney can be quite unpredictable. One day it’s raining cats and dogs, and the next thing you know, you’re sweating like a pig (though pigs don’t really sweat!). Extreme heat and extreme rain are two of the most formidable opponents of roofs. Rain can overwhelm your roof and cause unwanted leaks in your ceiling. Extreme heat, on the other hand, can cause corrosion. A good solution for this is to use colorbond roofing in Sydney which is adept to the local weather. It has 22 colors to choose from which will complement whatever house style or palette you have.
Value for money
Metal roofing is so popular that “750,000 US homeowners chose metal roofing for their houses in 2015” according to a Bob Vila article online. While makesafe roofing can be more expensive than other roof types, its value comes from the fact that it is more durable and lasts longer compared to tiled roofing. Value also comes to being eco-friendly as they’re made from recycled metals. Metal roofs can help keep your home cooler in the hot months and warmer in the cool months thus helping you save more energy.
