The Best Roofing Material in Hawaii: Metal

02.08.2016

Choosing the right roofing material in Hawaii is critical for protecting your home. Living in Hawaii may be paradise for people, but it is brutal on our roofs, with the massive rain, high winds, and occasional hail and flying coconuts. Metal roofing is by far the hardier choice, and it offers a host of other benefits, as well.

Why Choose Metal?

  • Superior Protection – A metal roof can withstand winds of up to 140 miles an hour (depending upon the specific material you choose). Metal roofs also resist damage from wind-blown debris and hail, and, with proper installation and regular inspections, it will keep your home from any water damage due to leakage. Your metal roof will be fireproof, and will not spark in the event of a lightning strike, keeping the rest of your property safe, too.
  • Durability – Your home’s metal roof should last at least 20 years, and it will require minimal maintenance over its lifetime. Metal roofing comes in a wide variety of styles and ULTRA-Cool® Kynar 500® colors, which will hold their beauty for decades to come.
  • Savings – There is no arguing that a metal roof will cost more than other materials to purchase and install. But once it is installed, the savings will flow your way. In addition to requiring far less maintenance than any other roofing material, metal roofing provides excellent insulation, so your home’s interior temperature stays comfortable with less help from your heating and air conditioning. Through 2016, the federal government is offering a tax credit of up to $500 for the purchase of metal roofing that is Energy Star certified. Many homeowners’ insurance companies also offer a discount for homes with metal roofs, because they reduce the risk of damage so greatly. In some cases, if you are replacing asphalt shingles with metal, the metal can be installed right over the asphalt, saving you the expense of a tear-off.
  • Easier On The Environment – Metal roofing material is completely recyclable when it is replaced. It is also the perfect basis for a water catchment system, which can supply your pool, spa, laundry or landscape water, or, with the right options, could also supply potable water for your family to drink or bathe in.
