At Yutzy Construction, we specialize in metal roofing. Metal roofing is becoming more and more popular in today’s construction due to its long-term durability and energy efficiency, making it the ideal choice for homeowners.
The lifespan of shingles is about 15-20 years. While this may seem like a long time, it is actually a short time considering the lifespan of a house. If properly installed, a metal roof should last as long as the building it rests on, sealing out water, surviving high winds, resisting mildew and rot, and easily shedding snow.
Because metal roofs are non-combustible, they are given a Class-A fire rating, which means metal roofing can reduce your homeowner’s insurance up to 35%. Insurance companies love metal roofs! Most types of metal can be installed over some existing material such as shingles, however, part of a metal roof’s classification rating depends on the materials beneath the surface. The classification rating will be lower if the metal is installed over flammable material.
At 1/3 the weight of asphalt shingles, metal roofs put less stress on a structure. Metal also reflects the sun, minimizing midday heat. This means you can save money and energy on air conditioning during the hot summer months.
With 20 years of experience, we back all workmanship with a 5-year warranty, and all metal with a 40-year warranty.
