The Benefits of Using Erie Metal Shingles on Your Home in Pittsburgh, PA
Are you thinking about putting a new roof on your home in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania? If so, consider using metal shingles from Erie Home. Our shingles are made of investment-grade stamped steel and come in a variety of eye-catching styles, including dimensional shingle, shake, and Spanish tile. An Erie metal roof is an intelligent investment that will save you serious money over the long term and keep your home in Pittsburgh protected against the elements far better than shingles that are made of little more than paper, asphalt, and granules.
The metal shingles that we manufacture and install are coated three times at the factory for unparalleled durability. First, each metal shingle is coated with a mixture of zinc and aluminum to protect it against oxidation. Second, we then coat it with an acrylic resin for the purpose of UV light protection and color permanence. Finally, the shingle receives a final glaze that bonds the stone coating and ensures that it is 100 percent nonporous and resistant to freezing, thawing, and other types of weather-related damage. The result? Metal shingles that easily last for up to half a century without cracking, splitting, rotting, or rusting. An Erie metal roof has an incredibly low lifecycle cost. It will go decades without having to be replaced and typically requires no maintenance whatsoever.
Another way in which Erie metal shingles can help you keep more money in your pocket is the possibility that installing a metal roof could help you qualify for significant homeowners’ insurance savings. Class A fire rated and Class 4 impact resistant, an Erie metal roof is exactly the type of product that homeowners’ insurance companies have in mind when they decide to give insurance premium discounts to policyholders who buy them.
