What Are the Advantages of a Metal Roof?
Metal Roofs Are Long Lasting
Metal roofs typically last two to three times longer than asphalt shingle roofs. Metal roofs typically last 40-50 years. However, with proper maintenance and care, some metal roofs can last as long as 70 years. Due to rust-proof coatings, they don’t corrode or crack, and there is less of a leak than with traditional roofing systems. Many homeowners say that longevity is their primary reason for choosing a metal roof!
Metal Roofs Require Less Maintenance
While we still recommend having your roof serviced annually to protect its longevity, the list of services required for a metal roof is relatively short! Key maintenance items include treating any scuffs, scratches, or corrosion, and replacing any aged fasteners.
Metal Roofs Are Fire-Retardant
Most premium metal roofs are given a Class A Fire Retardant rating, so you don’t have to worry about your roof catching on fire if lightning were to strike.
Types of Metal Roofs We Install
What it lacks in style, aluminum roofing makes up for in fire, wind, and impact resistance. It is the durable value option among metal roofs. Aluminum is lightweight and durable, with most shingles having seven layers of paint and primer. Add on to that their environmentally friendly material and structure, and it’s easy to recycle them when the time comes to replace them. It is easy to see why aluminum is an excellent material for metal roofs.
Regardless of how long you have had one, the beauty of a copper roof is unparalleled. Whether it’s brand new and shiny or sporting the distinctive green that aged copper, 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 ease. And with high thermal conductivity, it’s even capable of helping to drive down your energy costs year-round.
In many regards, steel is among the finest materials possible for your roof. Energy-efficient, recyclable, lightweight, durable, fire-resistant, and easy to install, its benefits are nearly too many to count! The fact that it is also highly customizable, allowing you to make it look like many other roofing types, only shows its versatility against its affordability.
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.
Corrugated Metal Roofing
Corrugated metal is galvanized steel that is rolled into a pattern. The two most popular styles of corrugated metal are 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.
Standing-Seam Metal Roofing
Standing seam metal roofing comes in a variety of seam types: snap-lock, mechanical lock, and batten panel. Each one interlocks differently and they provide different protection. Depending on your climate, you can choose a specific seam type to protect your building.
Because of the interlocking panels, the seams stand up higher than the roof itself. The standing seam is an aesthetic feature that makes standing seam metal roofs appealing and also protects the fasteners. Standing-seam metal roofs offer a wide range of colors, lengths, widths, thicknesses, and seam types. Of course, they are durable and cost-effective.
