What are the Advantages of Metal Roofing?
Metal Roofs Last Longer
Metal roofs normally last 40 to 50 years, but with proper maintenance and care, they can last as long as 70. Their rust-proof coatings avoid cracking or corrosion, and there is less chance of a leak than with traditional roofing systems. Longevity is the primary reason among homeowners for choosing a metal roof!
Metal Roofs Require Less Maintenance
Because the list of services required to keep metal roofs maintained is short, service is usually only recommended on an annual basis. Key maintenance items include treating any scuffs, scratches, or corrosion, and replacing any aged fasteners.
Metal Roofs Are Fire-Retardant
Premium metal roofs are usually given a Class A Fire Retardant rating, so there’s little worry of your roof catching on fire in the case of a lightning strike.
Types of Metal Roofs We Install
Standing-Seam Metal Roofing
Standing seam metal roofing is built with a variety of interlocking seam types that provide different protections. Snap-lock, mechanical lock, or batten panel may be the choice seam type needed to protect your building depending on your climate.
The seams stand up higher than the roof due to the interlocking panels. This aesthetic feature increases the appeal of standing seam metal roofs while also protecting the fasteners. These durable and cost-effective metal roofs offer a wide range of colors, lengths, widths, thicknesses, and seam types to fit your needs.
Corrugated Metal Roofing
Corrugated metal is a rolled pattern of galvanized steel, its most popular styles being U-panel and R-panel. Although patterns can vary, corrugated metal is stacked like tile. The corrugation runs perpendicular to the grooves in the steel. This process enhances the strength inherent in galvanized steel.
Corrugated metal is a cost-effective choice since it’s prefabricated. It is lightweight, corrosion-resistant, durable, and easily transported. Corrugated metal directs water off of your roof making it an excellent solution for your building.
The beauty of a copper roof is unparalleled no matter how long you have had one installed. Whether it’s brand new and shiny or sporting the distinctive green that aged copper provides after oxidation, copper roofing on its own can raise the value of your property substantially and will last for life.
In addition to its beauty, copper is strong and resilient, capable of withstanding fire, hail, and rot with little to no difficulty. And with high thermal conductivity, it’s even capable of helping to drive down your energy costs year-round.
Steel is, in many regards, among the finest materials possible for your roof. From being energy-efficient, easily recyclable, lightweight, intensely durable, fire-resistant, and easy to install, its benefits are nearly too many to count! With it also being highly customizable, allowing you to make it look like many other roofing types, its versatility and affordability shine through.
Steel roofing lasts considerably longer than aluminum, zinc, or copper, upwards of 40 to 60 years with proper care against oxidation. That said, beware of the possibility of corrosion should you live near the coast or anywhere with extra moisture.
Aluminum roofing is a durable value option for metal roofs. What it lacks in style it makes up for in fire, wind, and impact resistance. Aluminum is lightweight and durable, with most shingles having seven layers of paint and primer. Its easily recyclable form makes it environmentally friendly when the time comes to replace them. It is easy to see why aluminum is an excellent material for metal roofs.
