When selecting a new roof for your home, cost, durability and aesthetics are factors that you will take into consideration. You can choose from a variety of roofing materials, including composite materials, plastics, steel or metal, asphalt, stone, clay tile, slate and wood shingles.
While traditional asphalt shingles may be the most cost effective roofing material and provide a certain amount of aesthetic appeal, it is not the most durable. And stone, clay tile and slate are very durable but they are also very expensive, making them impractical for the average homeowner.
Metal roofing is becoming a popular alternative to asphalt shingles for homeowners who are looking for an attractive, worry-free solution to their roofing needs. There is a variety of metal roofing products on the market today, but choosing the right product and the right installer is important.
Knowledgeable homeowners in the Aurora area are switching to a metal roofing product from London Eco-Roof Manufacturing, producer of a unique metal roofing product that offers you an attractive and affordable roofing solution with a 50-year transferable warranty. Metal roofing is lighter than any other roofing product and, therefore, is a viable alternative to asphalt shingles.
One square (10 feet x 10 feet) of metal roof weighs 96 lb. compared to 240 lbs. for asphalt and almost 1,000 lbs. for traditional clay tiles. And, unlike other roofing materials, installation of metal roofing panels is quick and inexpensive.
The metal roofing panels from London Eco-Roof are made from steel and aluminum that is zinc-plated on both sides with several protective layers to ensure durability. A metal roof can be used for re-roofing old buildings and can be applied over one layer of asphalt shingles without having to reinforce the supporting roof structure.
