Editor’s note: This is a resource for you to share with customers who have questions about metal roofing.
Are you curious about getting a new roof for your home, but don’t know where to begin? Maybe you know you want a metal roof but are struggling with deciding which kind is right for your needs. You might have even done all your research in regards to materials but are still confused about the financial side of metal roofing. Thankfully, the Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA) has released their free Residential Metal Roofing Buyer’s Guide, a comprehensive guide that will answer all homeowner questions, making the roof replacement process a breeze.
Here’s what you can expect to find in the guide:
New roof considerations
Because a new roof is such a large investment, you’ll want to be completely sure that your current roof is in need of a makeover. In the guide, you’ll find a checklist of problem areas you or a qualified inspector should look for on your roof and in your attic. You’ll also find specific regional considerations, as where you live has a direct impact on the lifespan of your roof.
Types and styles of metal roofing materials
If you are curious how metal stands up to other roofing materials, this guide has a great chart that gives you specifics on all types of roofing materials from metal to clay tiles to wood shakes. Not only that, but you’ll learn about the different styles of metals, such as traditional metal tiles, metal slate and even stone-coated metal. They even have a quality breakdown of every component of a metal roof so you know exactly what you’ll be putting on your home.
Financing and warranty information
For homeowners who love the look and high-performing qualities of metal roof, but aren’t sure if a new roof will break the bank, this guide also highlights the benefits of financing! According to the guide, many lenders are interested in working with homeowners who have long-lasting metal roofs on their homes, so the odds for financing are in your favor. The guide also provides a list of considerations to make when it comes to choosing a warranty.
At the end of the guide, there is even a complete checklist where you can mark all the current issues with your roof, what features you want your new roof to have and what to look for in a roofing contractor.
