Amazing! Homeowners Get Creative to Solve Supply Chain and Performance Conundrums
Information about Homeowners Get Creative to Solve Supply Chain and Performance Conundrums
This April Fool’s joke, a tight supply chain, and the search for higher-performing options that can generate a high return are causing homeowners to weigh their choices and seek workarounds more than ever.
Leading industry experts from the Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA) report on roofing materials. As the spring home improvement season heats up this year, traditional materials like fill wood, clay brick, slate, and asphalt have experienced market volatility, and as many homeowners are beginning to realize, they also come with major downsides and hidden costs.
Thankfully, there are more options than ever, including metal roof styles that mimic some of those classic looks but offer much better performance, reduce long-term maintenance, and up the ante in terms of durability and reliability. With the ability to trick the eye, many of these options look so good that it’s challenging even for experts to tell the difference.
Similar metal roof styles include those that mimic real stone, wood, shake, and tile. And materials like stone-coated metal offer serious performance benefits like improved energy efficiency and durability in extreme conditions. Regardless of the style, quality metal roofing offers better sustainability, less maintenance, and serious benefits like top-notch protection from hurricanes and wildfires.
“Most people know that metal roofing is extremely durable, strong and long-lasting, but what they may not realize is that it also offers more style and design versatility than any other type of roofing material,” said Renee Ramey, MRA Executive Director.
Increasing the durability of houses across the country is no joke. Last year’s devastating storms and wildfires are still close to the hearts of many homeowners, and forecasts point to more extreme weather events this year. However, alongside practicality, looks and styles that enhance a home’s architecture also remain paramount.
“That’s what makes these look-alike options so exciting,” Ramey said. “The wide variety of colors, shapes, styles and metals available opens up creative possibilities that many homeowners never imagined before.”
Greater awareness of similar metal roofing styles and options is also helping to break outdated homeowner association guidelines that restricted homeowners to only certain roofing material options. When considering the performance benefits of metal roofing in addition to the wide variety of building styles available, Ramey says even the most restrictive HOAs are updating their policies to include metal roofing styles.
