As Central Texas continues to see population growth, many homeowners are realizing their dreams in areas like Cedar Park, TX. Many new home developments and communities have been springing up in the area, all with premium roof systems. This is because homeowners and property developers realize that buyers and sellers value roofing systems that guarantee performance for a lifetime. In the Cedar Park roofing ecosystem, the best roofing system for overall lifetime value is metal roofing.
Cedar Park roofers are all very familiar with area hailstorms that pummel Central Texas every spring and summer. These storms cause immense damage to roofing systems that are not specifically designed for impact resistance. That means more claims and hassles for homeowners and property managers when it comes to the roof.
Metal roofs are specifically designed to withstand the impact of hailstones in varying diameters without denting or damaging the roof. They are the industry’s most durable and long lasting roofing system period. Because of that they provide a premium to home value rates.
Contrary to the thought, metal roofs are the most energy-efficient roofing systems available. They are fantastic at reflecting sunlight, insulating the interior of the roof, and releasing built up heat throughout the day. Conversion from old shingle roofs to new metal roofs can reduce energy costs by as much as 20% or more.
Over the course of a roof’s lifetime, when all maintenance and repair factors are considered, metal roofs often have lower overall cost of ownership. Metal roofs are more expensive to install than shingle roofs, but require much less maintenance, are easier to repair, and have better energy efficiency (on average).
