Commercial Roofing Series: Focus on Metal Roofing

By Stacy Mellete

Protecting your business against challenging weather should be a year-round priority. The first step to doing this is making sure your commercial roof is in good condition. Knowing that your roof won’t fail can give you the confidence to go about your daily business even during hurricane season.

Many commercial establishment owners in Florida opt for metal roofing systems because of the variety of advantages it offers. Affordable Roofing Systems, your most trusted roofing contractor in Tampa, FL, gives you the basics on this highly efficient commercial roofing type.

• Energy-Efficient: Many metal roofs have reflective properties that keep the sun’s harmful rays at bay. This helps maintain comfortable temperatures inside the building without you having to overwork your heating or cooling systems. You can reduce expenses on energy bills— that means, you have more dollars to invest into other aspects of your business.

• Durable: Metal is a very sturdy material. Used on your roof, it can help your establishment withstand rain, hail, wind, heat, and other elements. The metal roofs we offer at Affordable Roofing Systems can even withstand raging winds blowing up to 120 mph.

• Maintenance-Free: High quality metal roofing is one of the most low-maintenance options available. It’s not prone to chipping, fading, or cracking, like many asphalt shingles are. Nor does it require demanding upkeep. Even with minimal effort on your part, it can keep its looks and performance for years to come.

• Attractive: Metal roofs can be very appealing if you pick the right color and finish. Affordable Roofing Systems can help you find the best combination that will complement your building’s overall design.
