We all know that a roof is one of the most important parts of any building – whether it be residential, commercial, or industrial. It protects everything inside from the elements, including Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula’s unpredictable heat, wind, and rain.

When it comes to choosing the best roof material, the best option in most cases is metal roofing. Here’s why:

Metal roofing is durable

The weather can often become quite severe in the Melbourne, Mornington Peninsula, and South Eastern and Eastern suburbs. You will need extra protection from the extreme heat and cold, along with the gale force winds, heavy rain, and golf ball sized hail. Metal is a tough and resilient roofing material designed to withstand whatever the Australian climate brings.

When installed correctly by a roof plumbing expert, metal roofing can last for as long as the building, as it does not rot and can withstand mildew and insects.

Unlike other roofing materials metal roofing is non-combustible, meaning it is fire-resistant and doesn’t ignite easily. If you live in an area prone to bushfires, this makes metal roofing the best roofing option for you.

Metal roofing is energy efficient

We’ve all experienced Melbourne’s sweltering midday summer heat. Metal roofing reflects the sun’s heat; reducing that midday heat gain inside your building. You can then keep the inside of your building cooler and reduce the cooling costs of using an air conditioner.

When it comes to winter, the tiles on a roof can break and fall away letting all the heat out of the building. This means your heating system is working overtime, and costing you a fortune. Metal roofing doesn’t have this issue, and when properly insulated can keep heat within the building.

Metal roofing is easy to maintain

When it comes to minimal maintenance, metal roofing wins everytime. Metal roofing doesn’t suffer oxidation or colour fading in the first 3-5 years like tiled roofing does. The colours remain true and vibrant for many years.

Any issues that traditional tiles encounter, such as breakage and movement, virtually disappear with a metal roof. Simply hose down the roof to prolong its life and keep it looking vibrant.
