May 12, 2023

Learn why a quality roof is an investment. Plus how to check for quality and the best roofs for tropical weather.

Roofs are hard workers. They hold off storms, strong winds, and the burning sun. They protect those seeking shelter while defending the structure from wear and tear. 

Since roofs do so much, shouldn’t you invest in high-quality roofing?

Why you need a high-quality roof

A high-quality roof brings great benefits:

A good roof protects the occupants 

It gives people shelter and peace of mind. 

A good roof protects the building and its contents

It extends the life of the building and ensures that the contents are protected from the elements. 

A good roof is energy-efficient

It keeps your home cool in the summer and warm in the colder months. Thus, it helps you consume less electricity.

A good roof increases the value of your property

A sturdy and beautiful roof improves the resale value of the home.

A good roof saves you money for repairs 

It won’t require a lot of maintenance.

Poor quality roofs

When roofs are of poor quality, they need more maintenance. You will likely spend more time and money on repairs. A substandard roof can also cause a building to age and deteriorate faster. This happens when the roof fails to shield the structure from corrosion and heat, water, or wind damage.

What makes a good quality roof?

Check to see if your roof meets the criteria.

It’s quality tested

One thing that separates ordinary and high-quality roofs is the quality testing it undergoes. Leading metal roof brand Metalink uses several test to ensure that its long-span roofs in stone-coated, pre-painted, TEKTURA, metallic, and LUXEWOOD finish pass the standards. Metalink’s quality assessments check the roof’s durability, its performance against handling and impact, and how the paint resists cracking, spalling, and fading.

It resists corrosion

A roof is exposed to the elements 24/7, so it must withstand harsh conditions. If a roof corrodes easily, such as with poor-quality roofs, this can cause structural damage to the entire building. 

It resists fading

Will constant exposure to weather, pollution, and the environment cause the roof’s brilliance to fade? Fading may signal that your roof has poor quality and a shorter life span.

Installation is easy

A roofing solution is good from concept to installation. If the roof is easy to install, it was designed well.
