There is a lot we do nowadays to lessen our impact on the environment: recycling, carpooling to work, and buying products that support the green initiative are just a few of our behaviors. But what about the way we maintain our homes?
Your roof is a place to start. Asphalt shingle roofing is one of the most widely used materials due to low cost and ease in installing. But like many inexpensive and easy options, there are a lot of drawbacks to asphalt shingles. They suffer from thermal shock when temperatures change drastically in a short period of time, making them weaker. In extreme conditions they can be torn off or decay off of the roof and need to be replaced. They require a lot of maintenance—a lot of time, effort, and money.
Advanced Metal Roofing LLC, located in Brentwood, offers the alternative: metal roofs. A family owned company that has expanded their business in metal roofing over recent years, Advanced is the company to consult.
“We take pride in everything that we do. We’re very customer service oriented,” owner Wayne C. Wilusz explains.
Wilusz is passionate about metal roofing and the advantages it brings to homeowners. Advanced’s office off Route 125 is open for potential customers to walk in and learn more about metal roofing and all of its facets. They offer free in-home consultations.
“Our main goal is to set appointments - evaluate roofs, give an estimate, provide education about the process, and give an exact cost of what it would be to have [the roof] done.”
A quick internet search reveals that many people have a lot of misconceptions about metal roofing - the main concern, that it’s aesthetically unappealing with little variety. In reality, there are different styles and options available. Advanced Metal Roofing has different dyes that give different profiles that the customer can choose, as well as the option of metal shingles or metal tiles that are more decorative. There is also a steel shingle that looks like an asphalt shingle, which could be the answer if you want your roof to look as it does but with the metal roof advantages. So what are the advantages?
