Would Metal Roofing Work for You?

Metal roofing has become a popular choice for more than just industrial applications. Today many residential and commercial builders are also considering the benefits that a metal roof can provide. If you are looking at building a home, a storage shed, a warehouse, or a commercial office, here are some of the reasons to look at building a metal roof with steel from Wasatch Steel.

Style and Beauty
If you don’t think of the word “beauty” when you think of metal roofing, then perhaps you haven’t seen the latest advancements in the industry. Many builders today use a wide variety of different materials in several colors and style that can make even a metal roof stand out and look amazing. Steel offers particularly great benefits because it is lightweight and can be installed on just about any roof—residential, commercial, or industrial—plus it can be painted to match any style that you prefer.

Energy Efficiency
Another benefit that metal roofing provides homeowners and business owners is improved energy efficiency. Lower utility bills for heating and cooling means increased profits for your company or more money in your pocket at home. Steel roofing can reflect heat away from your building, particularly when it’s painted in light colors, which keeps the building cooler in the summer and reduces your air conditioning costs. In the winter it can also prevent too much heat from escaping through the roof, which reduces heating bills. In addition when your HVAC systems don’t need to work as hard to keep the building cool in the summer and warm in the winter, they will last longer and save you money by not replacing those appliances as often.

Safety and Environmental Impact
Steel roofing from a place like Wasatch Steel can also improve the safety of your building. Metal roofing is fire-resistant, which makes it a particularly great choice for homeowners, commercial businesses, and even industrial warehouses. Since steel can be endlessly recycled without losing any of its strength or durability, it also reduces pollution and landfill waste, benefiting the environment. This lightweight material can be shipped from Wasatch Steel to your home or business without burning excess fossil fuels as well, making it an earth-friendly choice.

Proven Performance
Finally, like many things built out of steel, metal roofing will last for several decades to come. In fact, steel roofing is designed to last for 50 to 100 years with proper maintenance and upkeep, which mean you won’t need to replace your residential or commercial roofing ever again in most cases. It is resistant to rust and weather, heavy snowfall, rain, hail, and other things that Mother Nature might bring.

When you examine all the benefits that metal roofing can provide, it makes sense to visit the steel supermarket at Wasatch Steel to find out if they have the metal roofing material you need for your next building project.
