Metal roofing is known for using large metal sheets during installation. It’s not always practical, but it has been the status quo for years. However, a recent development in the material has changed that. Granulated metal roof tiles offer plenty of benefits over regular standing metal roofs. Find out why this is preferred for roof replacement and installation.
Change in Texture
Look at the difference between the metal sheets and the granulated shingles. When you see the sheet, you’ll notice that it has a pretty distinct look. While it can be shaped to your needs, there are no available finishes to make it look like anything other than metal.
When you see the tiles, they look like other roofing shingles. You can ask your roofer to make the granulated surface mimic wood, brick or stone for an authentic look. This alone can catch the eye of potential buyers and raise your home’s value on the market.
Easier Installation and Repair
Installing a large metal sheet may be faster than installing regular shingles because it is lighter and faster to move. However, sheets require braces and fasteners to hold each section together. That also means any serious damage or repair should happen to the entire section, even if only a small area is affected.
When you get granulated shingles, one additional benefit is that it’s faster to move. Since each shingle is smaller than a single sheet, you can speed up both the installation and the repair. Also, you get to replace a single tile without your roofing company removing the rest of the system. Best of all, you get the same benefits of a single sheet per tile. This includes the heat resistance, weatherproofing and durability lasting over four decades.
