Corrosion, rust and moisture resistance!
As mentioned above, zinc roofs are highly durable and this is because it has quality properties, which make it resilient to becoming damaged from external factors.
For example, your home will be protected from the poorest of weather conditions.
A common misconception, many consumers believe that metals are susceptible to rust; however, this is not the case with zinc.
Zinc is less reactive to water and is highly, highly resistant to corrosion.
This more often than not makes zinc the perfect choice when building homes in high-moisture or humid environments.
Zinc roofs can self-repair
Yes, you read that right.
One of the many unique properties associated with zinc roofs is that over time any environmental damage or scratches can self-repair.
This means that zinc roofs can maintain a fresher, newer appearance for longer.
Constructed with a patina, which is the protective layer that forms over zinc (hydroxyl carbonate) blocks moisture, chemicals and even has the ability to re-form and repair itself to get rid of any blemishes like scratches.
One of the biggest disadvantages homeowners often find with zinc roofs is its cost.
In comparison to other hard metal roofing materials, zinc is pricier but is cheaper than other metals like copper.
But with zinc, you get what you pay for.
Considering that roof repairs or reroofing can cost thousands and thousands of pounds throughout your lifetime, with zinc you can rely on its low maintenance properties.
Zinc can certainly provide homeowners with a substantial return, but considering this is the only disadvantage of zinc that we as roofers can think of, means that it really is a great investment for your home.
When it comes to spending a considerable amount of money on a new roof, you want the right roofers you can trust.
