Metal Roofing & DECRA® Benefits
- Unique & Decorative – If you’re looking to add a decorative, ornate look to your home, a metal roofing material like DECRA® is for you. With a sleek and refined appearance, your home will have a brand new look once installed.
- Easy Installation – Metal roofing is installed in sections or panels, so installation tends to take a shorter amount of time than other roofing materials, such as asphalt shingles. You’ll end up saving time in the installation process, and if you do need to end up repairing a panel, minimal labor will be required.
- Increased Lifespan – No matter where you are in the country, a metal roof can withstand all weather and temperatures. As such, you won’t have a problem with Michigan’s long, cold winters. If installed properly, your new DECRA® roof will be able to withstand fire, freezing temperatures and the strongest of winds. It’s not uncommon for this type of roof to last 30+ years, and the increased lifespan makes for a great investment.
- Light Weight – It’s no secret: roofs are heavy. If you decide to go with a light weight DECRA® roof, panels will weigh in at 50-150 pounds per square, instead of the usual 750-900 pounds per square for other decorative roofing materials, such as tile. Less weight will end up reducing overall stress put on your home’s structure, saving you money in the long run.
DECRA® Roofing Installation
As with any specialized roofing material, it’s important to get your DECRA® roof installed effectively. In order to do so, look for roofing contractors and companies that are certified in metal roofing installation. This will ensure your new metal roof is sealed properly and no problems arise early on in your roof’s tenure. Additionally, if problems do arise, your warranty will only cover roofing costs if it was installed by a certified professional. If you hire a contractor or company that doesn’t have up-to-date licensing and certifications, be prepared to pay out of pocket for any needed repairs.
As there are a variety of DECRA® and metal roof options, it’s best to consult with an experienced roofing company to determine what is best for your home.
