Steel Roofing: Why Choose Steel Roofing For Your Commercial Property?

It can be difficult to maintain your commercial property in good condition and protect your investment. Metal roofing options could be the right choice for you to save money on your property and increase its value.


  • Metal roofing could help you save money on energy bills


The cost of energy seems to be increasing every year. An old roof with poor insulation can increase your energy consumption. Stone-coated steel roofing is a great way to save energy and money.


Stone-coated steel roofing is laid in large panels, which overlap over strong plywood decks. This is similar to shingles. An air pocket is formed between the panels. It adds an additional layer of insulation and dampens outside noise. Additional layers such as sheetrock ceilings, decking underlayment and moisture barriers help keep warm and cool winter air out.


The roof will prevent warm air from escaping, which can help maintain a comfortable temperature inside your home and lower your heating bills. In the summer, metal roofs can be especially beneficial because of their insulation qualities. They will help prevent cool, conditioned, air from escaping your business structures.


Steel roofing is able to boost insulation while also naturally lowering the building's interior temperature during the summer months. Sunlight hits a roof and is either absorbed or reflected off the roof. Metal roofing does not absorb heat like asphalt, and it doesn't make buildings hotter. This style of roofing lets in less heat. Your roof is protected from UV radiation by stone-coated steel roofing.

  • Metal roofing could help you to save money on your maintenance and repairs.


Metal roofs are an excellent way to protect your home. Metal roofs can deteriorate from extreme weather like hail and high winds. It prevents water damage and mould from occurring. You will save money as you can lower the cost of maintenance and upkeep.


Surprisingly a metal roof is less likely to be struck by lightning because it is non-flammable and its construction design minimizes strike hazards. Metal roofs are often eligible for premium discounts by insurance companies due to their durability, fire resistance, and longevity.


  • Metal roofs are the best long-term investments


Steel roofs are typically durable for between 40-70 years. They also come with a warranty of 50 years. Asphalt shingles must be renewed approximately every 20 years. An increase in longevity can save you money and reduce waste. However, it can also increase your property’s resale price. If you intend to buy commercial property in an area that is developing, a metal roofing can be a great option.


A capital improvement such as a roof replacement will result in the value of the investment being treated as a capital asset. This allows you to increase the value of your house while also deducting the cost over time. To determine the best way to use your capital expense dollars, consult your tax and accountant advisors.
