What type of roof does your church have?
Steep Roof – Does your church have a roofing system that has a pitch greater than 2/12? Then your church has a steep pitched roofing system. This is a great design built to move water away from the foundation of your church. Foundations tend to last much longer when the steep roofing system is paired with the appropriate gutter system, keeping water away from the structure.
Flat Roof – If your church has a roofing system that is less than a 2/12 pitch, you’re dealing with a flat roofing system. This is built for easy roof access and allows for easy maintenance. However, a low-slope roofing system tends to shed water at a much slower rate, which is always dangerous with water.
What type of roofing system should you consider?
Metal Roofing Contractors – Our roofing company recommends a metal roofing system for any church that has a pitch great than 2/12. Why? A simple breakdown in the graph above illustrates the total costs/worth involved in using a metal roofing system vs. an asphalt roofing system.
Most asphalt roofing systems will offer a limited-lifetime warranty for 30 years but the warranty is prorated. It loses value as it ages. Meaning your asphalt’s roofing system decreases in value each year.
A metal roofing system is a long-term investment that offers 50 years of security behind its 50-year non-prorated warranty. This means that your church will not need another roofing system for the next 50 years and most likely longer. This graph illustrates how a metal roof keeps its value throughout the full 50-year period.
