Metal Panels Are Solar Ready
Many homeowners are concerned with how sustainable their homes are. This is especially true on an island with limited resources, where you truly see the impacts of your everyday decisions on the environment. For this reason, many homeowners are beginning to lean towards cleaner energy options, such as solar panels. If you are looking at installing solar panels on your home, a metal rooftops’ natural heat conduction and stronger structure makes it a far superior choice of roofing material.
Withstand Tough Weather Conditions
Metal roofs are renowned for their durability. High winds? No worries. Wildfire? The roof will still be there. Salt exposure? An aluminum roof can better resist corrosion and rusting from saltwater than other roofing materials combined. And with the proper paint finishing, metal roofs can even withstand high UV exposure with minimum fading. Meaning your roof may easily look as good today as it will in 20 years.
Perhaps everyone’s favorite aspect of a metal roof: it looks good without trying! Aside from a yearly cleaning (bi-yearly is better) you won’t need to do much to maintain your metal roof. Meaning more time snorkeling Roatan’s incredible coral reef or sipping Monkey Lala’s by your infinity pool overlooking the iron shore.
