When you take the time to look, you’ll notice there are various styles of roofing in Ballina and here at Ricky Jenner Plumbing, Roofing and Guttering we are familiar with all of them. When we’re asked, we generally recommend a metal roof. If you’ve never had a metal roof, you may be wondering what makes them so great. Keep reading to find out why it’s such a good choice for your house. 

Long Lasting

When compared to other roofing materials, metal is a long lasting and durable choice that won’t need to be replaced as often as others. Unlike concrete and clay tiles or traditional roofing materials, metal won’t degrade as quickly so you won’t need to allocate such a large budget for repairs and maintenance. 

Weather Resistant

Another perk of metal roofing is that it withstands many weather conditions compared to the lasting power of other roofing types. Metal is wind resistant so you won’t have to worry about damage to your home if it gets windy outside. It also holds up well to rain, harsh sun, and other extreme weather conditions so you won’t have to be concerned about putting extra money aside for roof repairs. 

Energy Efficient

If you want to lower your energy costs, a metal roof is a good way to do so. Our metal roofing materials reflect the harsh rays of the sun, which can lower the internal temperature inside your house during the summer, minimising the need for air conditioning, effectively reducing your overall energy costs. This is great for your bank account, but it’s also ideal for reducing your carbon footprint and protecting your environment. 

Fire Resistant

A fire in your home can be catastrophic but choosing a metal roof helps protect your house. It won’t catch due to embers and sparks in the area and can keep your home from catching fire and burning down. If you live in an area that could pose a fire risk, metal roofing is a practical choice. 


Using a lightweight material on your house protects the structure and takes pressure off of the other parts of your home. You might be surprised to find that metal is a great lightweight option that you’ll love having on your home. Not only that, but the metal is better at resisting seismic activity around your house and can be installed right on top of the roof you already have.
