The Essential Facts You Need to Know About Metal Roofing

As a homeowner, you may be considering having a metal roof installed on your home. It’s a popular and viable choice since it’s perfect for nearly any home with a steep enough roof pitch. In fact, there are some options that hardly look like they’re made from metal. Here are the essential facts you need to know about this roofing choice.

Metal Roofs Don’t Attract Lightning 

You might believe that a metal roof will attract lightning. But in reality, the chances of metal roofs attracting lightning are just as high as any other roof using different materials, and the major factors leading to lightning striking your roof still depends on where you live and your local climate. Even if lightning does strike a metal roof, it won’t catch fire as easily compared to other materials, such as wood shingles. This is simply because the metal itself is a less combustible material.

Metal Roofs Offer Better Resale Value 

Despite what you’re led to believe, metal residential roofing systems are actually highly valued. According to Remodeling Magazine, a home that’s renovated with a standing-seam type of metal roofing can recoup on average 85.9% of costs nationally and up to 95.5% for homes in the Eastern states. These help gain the resale value amount to 1% and 6% respectively, compared to homes with asphalt shingle roofing systems.

Metal Roofs Have Good Energy-Efficient Properties 

In fact, industry studies show that cooling costs are reduced by around 10% to 25% when a metal roofing system is installed. This means that the material has remarkable reflective properties against solar heat and is especially effective in areas where cooling costs are higher than heating costs. We highly recommend metal roofs if you’re aiming for higher energy efficiency for your home.

Metal Roofs Are Cost-Effective

Metal roofs are really known to last 50 years or more. In fact, State Farm Insurance Statistics has proven that some metal roofs have a longevity of 40 to 70 years. Of course, there are other roofing materials like high-quality asphalt with comparable warranties, although they usually last around 30 years at best. But with a metal roof over your home, you don’t have to worry about re-roofing again for the rest of your time residing in your home.

I just wanna give a shout out to one of your guys who jumped out of vehicle to help me push my van out from 62 onto coker Butte this morning awesome job and thank you so much..

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
