Metal Roofs

Metal roofing has become a popular choice for new construction for many reasons. It’s incredibly durable and strong, making it a good option for homeowners who would otherwise need to replace their roofs frequently. It’s also easy to install and comes in a wide range of colors and styles, allowing you to find something that will work with your home or stand out on its own.

One thing that sets metal roofs apart from asphalt ones is their energy efficiency ratings. Most metal roofing products are highly energy-efficient, making them a great choice for those who want to save money on heating and cooling costs while they’re at it! When installed correctly, they hold up great during storms and some can sustain wind gusts up to 140 miles per hour. Even if you were ever to sustain any damage, metal roof repair is something that we can help you with.

If you’re looking for a durable, stylish, and affordable option for your next roof, metal may be just what you need. It’s available in different styles and can last up to 50 years or more with proper maintenance.

The three main types of metal roofs include corrugated, standing seam, and tile or shingle-style. Likewise, you can get them made from stainless steel, tin, aluminum, copper, and zinc.

A standing seam metal roof is one where metal panels are placed on it that are continuous and run down the full length of it. Each neighboring panel will slightly overlap the other one and are all placed together in parallel rows. They are either screwed or bolted to flanges that make up a system known as standing seams. Standing seam roofs are often made from either galvalume-coated steel, copper, aluminum, or several other metals.

A standing seam roof is typically more expensive than other types of metal roofs, but they have many upsides. The first one is that they are quite energy-efficient thanks to their insulating properties. Next, they are very strong and offer superior protection against fire and weather, making them an excellent choice for homes in areas with extreme climate conditions. There’s little-to-no maintenance required for them and they don’t need to be painted or treated in any way either. And because standing seam is so durable, there’s no worry about needing a replacement because it has a long lifespan of around 50 years.

Corrugated metal roofing is one of the most cost-effective types on today’s market. These roofs are designed with long panels of either galvanized steel or aluminum that can be assembled quickly and provide superior ventilation and water drainage, all without requiring additional equipment or labor costs. Since they also come in a variety of colors, textures, and finishes, you can choose a corrugated metal roof to suit your home’s overall design.

They are often used as roofs for warehouses and other commercial buildings because they’re relatively lightweight yet strong enough to bear heavy loads. They also work well in areas with freezing weather conditions thanks to their thermal resistance capabilities.

These roofs have a lot going for them. For starters, these roofs are very durable and last a long time, which means that they’ll require little maintenance in future years. They’re good for cooler temperatures; their corrugated design allows for excellent drainage when it rains or snows and heat release during hotter seasons. Corrugated metal roofs are also watertight, which means you won’t have to worry about weatherproofing your house—it will always be safe from rain and snow.

The drawbacks to a metal roof installation include being heavy and causing you to need to have trusses that can support all that additional weight. Other downsides include higher installation costs and longer construction times. When it comes to materials, galvanized steel is stronger than aluminum—but it will rust if left untreated with a coat of paint or rust sealant before use.

While metal roofs are typically considered more expensive than other options, they last much longer and require little to no maintenance. Depending on your area, these can last upwards of 50 years. However, seams are one of the weakest points in a metal roof, so if you have a seamless metal roof installed it will likely last much longer. Seamless panels use technology that eliminates visible seams, reducing the chances that rainwater and snowmelt will leak into your home.

For those looking for a truly premium-quality roofing option, metal roof shingles are hard to beat. Not only will it give your home a classic look, but it will provide incredible durability too. Unlike asphalt shingles that break down over time while being exposed to the elements and weather, metal shingles are much more permanent and vastly outperform asphalt every time.

If you want the look of a tile roof, but you want the durability and performance of metal, you should consider getting metal tile roof panels installed instead. Because metal tiles come in panels, they can be installed much more quickly than traditional tile options. Unlike clay tiles, these are impervious to moisture and insects and are less likely to crack or break over time due to their solid composition.

Though metal options cost more per square foot than shake or asphalt shingles, keep in mind that metal tiles and shingles should last at least 50 years with proper maintenance—which can make up for your investment down the road if you plan to hold onto your home for decades to come.

Amongst all the metal roofing solutions, the tile and shingle-style versions are ideal for lower-cost applications because they tend to be slightly less durable than the other options.

Steel is one of the most affordable options of metal roofing. Steel roofs are often more than twice as strong as comparable asphalt shingles, and they can last for decades without any added upkeep or maintenance

If you’re looking for a more traditional, longer-lasting metal roof that also offers some natural insulation and protection from UV rays, then a corrugated steel roof might be right for you. Steel panels are smooth on one side with an embossed surface on the other to maximize their strength while also offering plenty of design options.

However, steel roofs do have some drawbacks. For instance, since it is heavier than other materials, it requires extra bracing materials and skilled labor to get it installed properly. Likewise, since it tends to rust over time, it needs to be treated and coated properly. If you live in an area with frequent hail storms or extreme weather events, steel may not be your best option because it can dent, but at least the storm won’t be able to puncture, break or tear the roof.

Hands down, copper roofing has great curb appeal and can be one of the most attractive metal materials out there.

Copper is extremely strong and durable and can last up to 50 years when installed and maintained correctly. This material doesn’t promote mold or mildew and is inherently highly resistant to fire, hail, and high winds. It handles cold weather conditions well and is great at withstanding any periods of freezing and thawing. The lightweight metal wears well and instead of rusting it will just oxidize in a manner that looks amazing.

Though copper roofing can be pricey, its durability makes it an excellent choice for coastal areas or anywhere else prone to extreme weather conditions like hail storms or hurricanes.

The strongest and most expensive metal roofs are made out of copper; however, they require frequent cleaning to keep them in top condition. The initial cost of a copper roof is significantly higher than other metal varieties, but you’ll enjoy it for its durability and resistance to dents and corrosion for decades after installation. Copper has less inherent insulation than other metal roofs, so it’s usually only used as an aesthetic feature in residential settings.

 

Aluminum roofing has some great benefits. First off, since aluminum is lightweight, it’s a great option for low-pitched roofs since it won’t put as much stress on your structure as heavier options would. It’s also very energy efficient, meaning that you can save money on your overall heating and cooling costs.

Though aluminum has a little bit higher raw material cost than other roofing materials, they wind up being a more affordable option over time. Since the material is highly malleable, they are much easier to install. Aluminum is a great long-lasting option due to its inherent highly corrosion-resistant properties.

However, despite all those advantages, aluminum roofing does have some disadvantages. Overall, aluminum tends to be noisier, easier to dent, more expansive under heat, is subject to oil canning, and can cost more to repair.
