Home sales for Austin, Texas remain good with home sales up 32.9 percent in April 2013, making April the twenty-third straight month of year-over-year sales volume increases, according to Eye on Austin Real Estate. In addition, homes sell more rapidly, with the average home spending 50 days on the market in April 2013. This is a 19 day decrease from the same month the prior year. "With home sales remaining hot, home owners must ensure their house stands out when home buyers begin looking. Installing a metal roof on the home helps to accomplish this goal," Keith Barker, an — austin tx roofing specialist, declares.
Metal roofs come in a wide range of styles and colors, to blend in with the architectural features of the home. Some mimic shingles or slate while others resemble wood shake roofs. Homeowners also still have the option of choosing a roof which resembles standing seam metal roof commonly seen in the past. "The goal remains to offer consumers a wide range of options to ensure each client finds one that best meets their needs while blending in with the overall look of the home," Mr. Barker explains.
Potential home buyers appreciate homes with metal roofs for a number of reasons. Metal roofs require very little maintenance and will last for years to come, longer than many homeowners keep a home. This type of austin tx roofing resists fire, hail and sunlight and rarely fades. "In fact, many insurance companies offer discounts to homeowners who choose to install a metal roof as it reduces their liability due to the strength of the roofing material," Mr. Barker continues.
The cost of the metal roof may easily be recouped if the homeowner wishes to stay in his or her home. A metal roof reflect up to 70 percent of the energy from the sun. This leads to lower energy costs, which is of great importance to many in today's tough economy. In addition, metal works to insulate the home, similar in many ways to installing R-11 insulation on the roof during sunny months. "Everyone likes to save money and a metal roof makes this possible for those wishing to stay in their home. Those who are trying to sell their property find that potential buyers appreciate the addition of a metal roof as they understand it will save them money over time," Mr. Barker states.
