Whether you are building your dream home in Malaysia or putting a new roof on your newly purchased home, or giving your existing roof a complete makeover, there are a number of materials that are available for your roof top. But no matter what roof style you want to have, metal roofs are a very attractive and affordable option for your home because of their longevity, energy efficiency and minimal maintenance.
You can choose from a variety of roofing materials, such as, tin, copper, zinc, aluminum, or galvanized steel, all you need to do is make sure your metal roofing material comes from a reliable manufacturer, and has been tested for durability.
Below are the benefits of metal roofing your home in Malaysia:
1. Durability and Longevity
Asphalt roofing requires re-roofing with in 12 to 20 years. That is because asphalt roofing is made of oil impregnated paper or fiberglass, that begins to deteriorate as soon as it is put on your roof. Normal weather and the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can easily add to the deterioration of an asphalt roof. Whereas a metal roof will never decompose this quickly. Unlike asphalt and other roofing styles, a metal roof is known to withstand just about every weather and climate condition Mother Nature throws at it.
When it comes to other roofing materials, such as, tile and wood shingles, they also have varying degrees of weather related problems. Wood shingles quickly dry out, cracking and curling in a relatively short time and need replacement before 20 years. Concrete tile roofs have also experienced their set of problems with freeze / thaw cycles, especially in the northern climates. Both of these products could not last as long as metal roofing that does not only last long but also retains its good looks, whether that be tile, shake, or vertical seam panels.
2. Wide Variety of Metal Roofing Designs, Styles and Patterns
The best thing about metal roofing is that you can always find a metal roof that suits the design and style of your home. Most consumers in Malaysia together with installers are surprised to discover metal roofs come in a wide variety of patterns and styles, exclusively designed to fit into any neighborhood and also carry the look of typical roofing styles including cedar shake, tile, slate, shingle, and standing seam vertical panels.
3. Long-Term Value of a Metal Roof
A metal roof is considered worldwide to be a premium roof system that adds value to your most important investment, that is your home. Initially, a metal roof is likely to cost more than an asphalt roof, and is comparable to other systems, such as, tile or shake. While these premium roof systems often look good at the beginning but they breakdown over time and you end up installing two or more. But when you install as metal roof it will keep on providing security and protection for you and your home. A metal roof will save you money over time and will easily last up to 30 to 50 years.
