Windows and roofs are vital to protecting your home from the elements. The elements oftentimes fight back, with rain and wind ripping up shingles on your roof and leading to leaks in your ceiling, or rubbing away the sealant on your windows and allowing water inside. Age also plays a big factor in metal roofing and window replacement. Shingle roofs only last around 20 years, and so does the average window. Both take beatings from the sun, loosing color and durability over time thanks to the sun’s powerful UV rays. Replacing your roof with a metal roof can solve both the weather damage and sun issue! Metal roofs last 50 years and withstand all weather types including fire. Since they are metallic, they reflect sunlight, which will actually cool your home and help lower your energy bills. There are durable windows called storm windows and low E windows that withstand weather and sun. Low E windows are energy efficient and stop UV rays from infiltrating your home and damaging your valuables while also keeping your house cool. When you upgrade your roof to a metal roof or replace your windows, there are a multitude of choices you can choose from!

Residential Metal Roofs
Metal roofs were once primarily used only on commercial buildings, but have seen started to become more popular in the housing market. In fact, many homeowners will get tax and insurance discounts if they have a metal roof because these are proven to be one of the safest and most durable roofing systems available. Because they are so durable, they do have a slightly higher price tag. Compared to the first storm that hits with your new metal roof and there is no damage, you will quickly find that it pays for itself. Shingle roofs are the cheapest roofing system around, but they also have the shortest lifespan due to their flimsy materials made of fiberglass and asphalt. Shingles easily get damaged from rain, wind, snow, and hail. After a storm, shingles will be missing, warped, cracked, bent, leaving your roof vulnerable to holes and leaks. This won’t happen with a metal roof, as the panels leave no room for water to seep through, creating a seamless barrier that lasts for 50 or more years! Residential metal roofing choices include:
Aluminum: This is the only metal roof that won’t rust from salt water or air, making it perfect for those beach homes on the coast of those North Carolina shores.
Stone Coated Steel: Stone coated steel roofs give the appearance of a shingle or stone roof, but has a metal base that provides more durability and protection.
Metal Shingles: Metal shingles can be made to replicate wood shake shingles, asphalt shingles, or slate shingles while still having that secure and strong base.
