When events that are out of your control hit your home or building, it’s stressful. Luckily, metal roofing is a solution for this stress. A hail storm that would have destroyed your shingle roof won’t even dent up your metal tiles, and fire resistant metal means you’re less likely to lose your home if your neighbour’s house goes up in flames.
Maintaining a shingle roof can be exhausting. You don’t want to invest your time in the fix-ups and maintenance, but you have no choice. And if you don’t take the time, you’ll have to spend more money on replacement in a few years. All of these worries are completely removed with a metal roof. You’ll never have to break out the ladder and climb up to your roof again!
People pay more for quality and reliability. The same is true when you add a metal roof to your house. Plus, AMT Metal Roofing warranties are fully transferable. That means when you sell your home or building, the roofing warranty transfers to the new owner.

Insurance companies base their premiums on risk factors. Metal roofing lowers the risk to your home or building, which in turn lowers your insurance premiums.

Mold is caused by water, and thanks to a watertight seal in your metal tiles, there won’t be water collecting under your roof. Plus, a ventilated air space between your roof and ceiling mean any moisture can evaporate easily. This means you won’t have to worry about mold breaking down your roof and ruining your home. Breathe easier and safer under a roof that won’t endanger your family or pets, and won’t cause damage.
