Rio Blanco Roofing believes that there are many advantages to using standing seam metal roofing in San Antonio. For instance, standing seam metal roofing is quite lightweight. Metal roofing is an ideal roofing material if you live in areas that are prone to natural disasters like hail and high winds. Another advantage of standing seam roofing is that metal roofing is very durable and the average lifespan for standing seam metal roofing is more than 50 years, which is double that of the typical asphalt roofing material used in the San Antonio roofing industry.
Rio Blanco Roofing also recommends metal roofing because of its optimal strength to weight ratio and impressive flexibility. Metal roofing in the San Antonio area is also a great choice due to its resistance against wind, hailstorms and fire. Interestingly, most metal roofing materials such as copper and aluminum consist of 95% biodegradable alloys which make it a great option if you are concerned about the environmental impact of your roof.
Standing seam metal roofing is energy and maintenance labor efficient, and has minimal upkeep requirements. However, installation of metal roofing is not foolproof. The incorrect use of incompatible components and their subsequent mixing can exacerbate erosion and corrosion thereby shortening the lifespan of your new metal roof. That is why installation by a professional metal roof installer such as Rio Blanco Roofing & Restoration is incredibly important.
Standing seam metal roofing provides many advantages to the residential and commercial consumer. Water tightness, color selection, longevity and a green roofing product are but a few of the significant advantages. Metal roofs also possess excellent impact resistance properties. Texas was the first state to require insurance companies to offer discounts if a homeowner installs a qualifying hail-resistant roof. Effective May 1, 1998 the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) requires that insurance companies provide mandatory discounts for hail-resistant metal roofs. Contact your insurance company for the specifics of their available discounts.
Standing seam metal roofing has always been one of the best selections for green roofing due to the manufacturing processes, light weight and longevity of the metal roofs.
