Metal roofs are known to be easy to maintain and to add value to both commercial and residential properties. Jacobs Ladder recently shared their knowledge on how long a quality metal roof should last.

Most people think that metal roofs are only appropriate for commercial buildings. In 2021 that’s far from true, with high quality metal roofs becoming a favorite for residential homes as well. One question that often comes up when considering a metal roof over other options is the question, “how long does a metal roof last?” Always eager to help keep customers as well informed as possible, roofing experts Jacobs Ladder recently revealed their thoughts on the average lifespan of a metal roof on their information-packed official blog. The company offers roofing services across Kentucky.

“There’s not as much knowledge in the community about metal roofs for homes,” remarked a spokesperson from Jacobs Ladder. “It’s only natural because most families have always had more traditional roof options. So we were happy about having the opportunity to look at the subject in a way that will help customers make more informed decisions. We are always here to help!”

According to the company, when a quality metal roof is installed by a professional team of roofers, it is extremely long lasting. The average time is a full three decades. Of course, somethings can impact that time positively or negatively, including, the climate and weather the roof is exposed to; the type of metal used for the roof; and the skill level of the roofing company (an area where Jacobs Ladder excels).

Jacobs Ladder also offers other roofing options, restoration services, emergency services, building consulting, and can handle insurance claims in a skilled, professional way.
