Under A Classic Metal Roof:There’s No Place Like Home
June 26, 2020 | Filed under: Buying a New Roof,Consumer Education,Research
What does a metal roof have to do with a classic phrase?
In his book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, L. Frank Baum says something that has been quoted millions of times since: “There’s no place like home.”
Few of us have difficulty picturing Dorothy in the movie clicking the heels of her ruby slippers together, repeating: “There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home.” This recollection may bring back great childhood memories or perhaps just remind you that your home can be your base – your comforting respite from the worries of the day.
While the last few months may have found you quarantined at home and sometimes wanting to curse the walls around you, your home should still be regarded as a place of comfort and peace, no matter what is going on in the world around you. When he was in first grade, our president Todd Miller won an essay contest on “What My Home Means To Me.” His final line in that essay was “A happy place to be.” We pray that is the case for you as well.
In our last couple of messages, we looked at the process of buying a new roof for your beloved home. We started with the process of setting your purchasing criteria for your new roof and continued with finding the right roofing contractor to install your beautiful new roof.
The natural next step is enjoying your new roof.
Making your decision wisely and carefully will allow you to enjoy even the installation of your new roof – despite some noise from hammering and cutting! Watching the progress and getting daily updates from a professional and high-quality roofing contractor will affirm the peace of mind that you were seeking with a new roof. Choosing the right contractor can create an enjoyable experience for you from start to finish.
So, once the roof installation has been completed, what can you expect? Let’s take a look at some key benefits for you to enjoy.
FREEDOM FROM WORRY
Your home’s roof is its first line of defense against rough weather. With an old, worn-down roof, each storm can bring worries of water damage. A properly-installed quality metal roof, though, will protect your home, your family, and your belongings – no matter what Mother Nature dishes out. A roof with resistance to wind, fire, ice, snow, and even mildew provides protection for you and your home investment.
Aren’t you looking forward to the peace-of-mind and security of a durable metal roof?
At least 60% of the visible exterior of many homes is the roof. This is a big part of your home’s curb appeal. While for years, most homeowners have just chosen their roof based upon the color of the shingles, today’s quality metal roofs offer you a wide variety of style and color choices. Your metal roof can look like high-end slate, wood shakes, barrel tile, or even provide that warm “farmhouse” look of standing seam roofing. With today’s advanced coatings, metal roofs are not limited to one single color. Products like our Slate Rock Oxford really enhance a home with variety in texture and pattern. Be sure to ask about our ThermoBond technology that can create a custom color roof to meet your exact wishes!
Imagine your satisfaction and pride as you pull up to your home with its beautiful metal roof.
A leading concern of many homeowners is the costs of living in their home. Long gone are your parents’ $45 electric bills. At Classic Metal Roofing Systems, we design our roofs for energy efficiency in three key ways, taking advantage of how heat travels to block it from entering your home or get it out of your home once it does enter. Our reflective coatings help redirect radiant heat, while the integral airspace beneath our press-formed metal shingles provides a thermal break to stop conductive heat transfer. Finally, proper attic ventilation will take advantage of convective airflow to help collected attic heat get back where it belongs – outside!
With an energy-efficient metal roof, you will join thousands of other homeowners enjoying energy savings of up to 20% or more.
Chances are that your home is your largest single financial investment. Over the years, you have seen its value go up and down. But, like any investment, maintaining its value and even adding to it will help it grow over time. A quality metal roof adds immediate value to a home and, unlike traditional roofs that deteriorate quickly, it maintains that value over the long term. A long-lasting metal roof will also make your home more attractive to potential buyers and prevent the need for eventual replacement from being a bargaining point in negotiations.
Imagine a roof you can be satisfied with for years to come, that protects your home and your investment in it.
We hope that you truly can say, “There’s no place like home.”
