When it comes to around-the-house or around-the-office projects, clients often end up weighing the decision of spending less money now with the possibility of having to spend more later or spending more money now with the possibility of having to spend less later. Do you pay for the quick fix? Or do you pay for the lasting solution? And while we would love to say it’s an easy choice, we understand that it’s not. Sometimes spending more now just isn’t an option. However, when your fix or update can also involve a little future proofing, a metal roof really is a great win.
Metal Roof Sound Investment for Future
This was on full display recently when we installed a new roof for a client. The existing roof was a standard shingle roof and it was time for an update. When we removed the old shingles, we found the OSB underneath had rotted out in some areas where water had been slipping through.
Thankfully, our client had committed to replace the old roof with a new metal roof. So after we replaced the rotted wood, we installed a Fabral 1.5” SSR standing seam metal roof. This 24-gauge roof is installed over a felt backing and the whole thing is designed to last for over 50 years and features Class 4 hail resistance, Class A fire resistance, and a Class 90 uplift test rating. Additionally, we installed new 6” seamless gutters.
Thanks to this new roof, our client will have a rot-resistant, durable roof that will last for decades on end. Overall it is very likely to require less maintenance, less upkeep, and less worry than other roofing options.
