4 Benefits of Metal Roofing

By October 9, 2017Blog, Roofing

When it comes to choosing a roofing material for your home, there are a number of factors that you should consider, including:

  • The style of your home
  • Relevant building codes/regulations
  • Council requirements
  • Aesthetic factors
  • Energy efficiency expectations

Before deciding on a roof for your home, we recommend that you first consult with a roofing professional – they take all of the above factors into consideration and make sure that you end up with the best roof for your needs. At Pantex Roofing, we specialise in metal roofing, which is ideal for homes that have a steep or flat roofline and offers a number of benefits that are hard to match.

Here are 4 reasons we reckon you can’t beat metal roofing:


Metal roofing is the most durable roofing material available. Traditional roofs last for up to 25 years – metal roofs, however, can last for more than 60 years. They are resistant to fires, pests, storms, strong winds, UV rays and just about anything the environment throws their way. If longevity is one of your main concerns, you simply cannot beat a premium metal roof.


Metal roofing is highly versatile and can be adapted to suit personal taste, climate and building style. Metal roofing is available in range of profiles and comes in a wide variety of contemporary and traditional colours. Whether your main concerns are durability, style or affordability, you will be able to find a metal roof that suits your needs – few other roofing materials offer this level of variety.

Environmentally Friendly

Metal roofing offers unmatched environmental benefits. Considered a ‘cool roof’, metal roofs can save homeowners up to 40% on their energy expenditure (by lowering your air conditioning and heating bills). Metal roofs are fantastic insulators, meaning they keep you comfortable inside regardless of the weather outside. Metal roofs are also 100% recyclable, so they are unlikely to end up as waste in landfill.


Although initially metal roofing can be more expensive than other roof types, their longevity means that they cost far less in the long run. As we mentioned earlier, other roofing types need to be replaced every 25 years or so. Metal roofing, however, is a premium product that comes with a 30-50 year warranty. If you treat your metal roof well, it is likely you will never have to replace it.
