Why Does Old Port Roofing Only Do Steel Roofing?

Driving around your neighbourhood, you may see a variety of different types of roofing. Today, slate, shingle and metal are some of the most common roof types that grace Adelaide and its surroundings. Here at Old Port Roofing, many people wonder why we only specialise in steel roofing. The reason is that we firmly believe that steel roofing is simply the best option for today’s customer. There are some reasons for this, so let’s jump in and see if we can convince you that a steel roof is a superior choice.


Steel Roofing Lasts Longer

Steel offers unmatched longevity when compared to other types of roofing. As a homeowner, you can appreciate that having your roof replaced is a pretty arduous task, and you ’d certainly prefer to do it less often. If rust and corrosion can be avoided through proper maintenance, it’s not unheard of for well-maintained steel roofs to last well over 100 years – which means that when it comes time to replace your roof, it won’t be you who has to worry about it!


Steel Roofing Is Durable

Steel is an inherently tough material – when we add protective layers to steel for roofing purposes, it becomes hard as nails! Steel roofing is wind-resistant and can stand up to hurricanes and gale-force winds. It’s also extremely fire-resistant which is reassuring if you live in an area where bush-fires are common. Steel’s durable nature means that your roof won’t let you down even with decades of use.


Steel Roofing Offer Superior Energy Efficiency

While some people complain that steel roofing is more expensive (and it’s not always the case) than other types of roofing to install, they’re neglecting to consider the long-term cost-reduction of having a steel roof. With superior heat blocking and solar reflectivity than any other type of roof, steel’s physical characteristics can help to keep your building cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The result is that your AC won’t have to work overtime and you get to save money on your heating and cooling costs.


Steel Roofing Is Better for the Environment

As previously mentioned, steel roofing lasts longer than other types and so needs to be replaced less frequently. Not only does this spare the planet from the effects of excessive extraction, processing and transportation of resources across the globe but steel roofing is also 100% recyclable, once it’s served its purpose. Compare this to say, asphalt shingles, which are made from toxic materials that will end up in a landfill after only two decades of use and it’s easy to see which option is the more responsible choice.


Steel Roofing Is More Aesthetically Pleasing

Steel roofing offers home and business owners and unmatched ability to create eye-catching and inspiring roofs that complement their buildings. Not only do the clean lines create a modern and stylish look that helps to re-vitalise your structure’s appearance, but with over 20 shades of colour to choose from you’ll be able to dial in a unique look, just the way you want it. Whereas other roof types allow your roof only to have one standardised appearance, steel roofs will enable you to unleash your creativity and give you the opportunity to create everything from a classic to a contemporary look.
