Roof maintenance isn’t easy. It’s usually out of sight, out of mind, which means you often don’t make time for it. Wouldn’t be great to forego much of the required maintenance that comes with shingles, tiles, etc.? One way to do so is by replacing your current roof with a metal roofing system for your Crystal Lake, IL, home. Gold Standard Restorations can help, which is why we offer free inspections and consultations.

“Homeownership should be about enjoying your home — not being a slave to it. The trick is to choose materials and products that make maintaining your home a snap.
Here are eight projects that’ll give your home a gorgeous makeover — and give you your weekends back.
Switch to Metal for a “Forever” Roof
Metal roofing is one of the toughest, most maintenance-free roofing materials made. In addition to the traditional standing seam panels — the ones with ridges running from the peak to the eave — today’s metal roofing includes products that mimic slate, clay tiles, and wood shakes.
Metal roofing also is extremely fire-resistant — in a fire-prone area, having a metal roof may qualify you for a discount on homeowners insurance.
Why it’s low-maintenance: Most metal roofing comes with a 40- to 50-year warranty, and the replacement cycle is almost three times longer than that of three-tab asphalt shingles.
Look for baked-on enamel finishes with rust-proof undercoating that are warranted for the life of the product. The finish won’t crack or shed like asphalt, meaning you won’t be scooping those little granules out of the gutter every spring and fall.
