THE GREAT ROOFING DEBATE is an informative learning experience for business owners and managers, as well as home owners. No matter where you are in your life journey, you will need to know about the pros and cons of major Roofing System offerings in order to maximize your financial investment and ultimately your property.
Composite Shingle Roofing Systems are the most common material for all structures, especially residential. For decades, this form of roofing material has been used across the country. This is primarily because it’s the best value — cost trade-off in dollars spent with a reasonable life span and low- to no-maintenance. If properly installed, a Composite Shingle Roofing Systems should last 12 to 15 years. Materials have improved over the years with reflective materials for energy savings, stronger materials to resist fire, water (weather) and hail, and strong winds.
Stone Coated Steel Roofing Systems are a growing option for commercial and residential roofing. They offer many of the style and color options that nearly match Composite Shingle Roofing Systems. They are energy efficient, and offer high ratings against fire and weather. The best feature of a Stone Coated Steel Roofing Systems is the extended variety by simulating other materials: tile, wood and metal. Because this is a metal roof, it’s much safer than these natural substances while also being light weight — thus avoiding unnecessary structural issues with the building support.
The best reason to choose a Stone Coated Steel Roofing System: it will be the last roof your home or building will ever need.
The best reason to choose a Composite Shingle Roofing System: out-of-pocket costs are typically more manageable.
