3 Benefits of Commercial Steel Roofs
Building and maintaining a large commercial building comes with lots of research and planning. You would also want quality materials that last as long as possible. Steel commercial roofs provide the best option for your building by being durable, energy efficient, and having great longevity.
When you live and or work in Minnesota or Wisconsin, you understand that you need to think about weather when you are thinking about your new construction project. Steel commercial roofs can withstand extreme weather conditions, including hail, and high wind speeds. Steel roofs have high impact resistance and stand their ground against tough conditions. It also provides protection against fire being that it’s a non-combustible roofing material. Rust and corrosion can also be avoided when the steel roof is coated with a metallic and polymer coating, further increasing the strength of the roof over long periods of time. Compared to other roofs, steel roofs provide great protection and resistance against all elements of nature.
2. Energy Efficiency
With proper insulation, steel roofs can save up to 40 percent on cooling cost compared to average roofs. This is because steel roofs reflect the sun’s heat away from the building, allowing the interior to be cooler as a result. Even when the sun isn’t out, the insulation power of steel roofs match that of asphalt shingles.
The average lifespan of steel roofing is roughly 50 years, compared to an asphalt roof that needs to be replaced roughly every 15 years. Steel roofs pay for themselves in their longevity alone and is one of the best long lasting options. Steel roofs don’t deteriorate easily, which greatly improves the structural integrity. It’s also likely that the interior of your building is worth more than the roof, so steel roofs are a great investment for protecting your building and the items inside.
With all these benefits, commercial steel roofs are the preferred choice for buildings. They are rated one of the highest for dependability and requires the least maintenance. For more information, please contact us and we will take matters with efficiency and professionalism.
