Metal Roofing

What are the advantages of metal roofing over other roofing materials?

Properly installed, a metal roof virtually never needs to be replaced, saving you money while adding value to your residential or metal structure.

A high percentage of roofs are manufactured from recycled material and in turn are 100% recyclable, making them among the most friendly for the environment. Due to better insulating abilities, metal roofs can offer a 40% reduction in energy costs in the summer when it is hottest.

Aesthetically,metal roofing material is offered in more options than any other on the market, including panels, sheets, and shingles in a color of your choosing.

How much protection does a metal roof offer?

  • FIRE: A metal roof will not burn or support combustion.
  • WIND: Experience at recent hurricanes has shown that metal roofs outperformed other roofing products.
  • WATER: Metal is impervious water absorption, greatly reducing damage to structure. And a metal roof cannot be penetrated by hail.

Roofing materials manufactured from stainless steel, zinc or copper will rarely require maintenance over their lifetime, as these materials commonly last over a century. An 'AG' graded metal roof will need recoating once the factory finish wears off, or corrosion will occur. These paints are commonly acrylic or polyester based. Roof coatings are the preferred material since they are able to stay elastic and withstand the thermal cycling that occurs in metal roofs.
