Metal Roofing Systems
The old "tin" roofs that offered little to no protection from the environment is a thing of the past. Today's metal roofing solutions, constructed from steel and aluminum, are high-tech, durable and visually appealing. Metal roofing does not rot, crack, wrap, or curl; provides excellent protection against corrosion; and is the most hail-, wind-, and fire-resistant roofing material on the market. It's no wonder more and more businesses are choosing metal!
Benefits of Metal Roofing
Long lifespan. If properly installed, a metal roof can last three times as long as asphalt shingle roofs. It completely seals out water, withstands wind uplift of up to 110 miles per hour, and easily sheds snow and ice, which helps prevent ice dams. If you want to protect your roof against natural disasters or inclement weather, metal roofing is the way to go!
Eco-friendly. Metal roofing is a green building material that earns green building credits. It can also be outfitted with solar roofing panels for standing seam roofs. This reflection of solar radiant heat can save you up to 40 percent on cooling costs.
Lots of options. Metal roofs are available in wide variety of roofing styles, patterns, designs, and colors. Some sheet-style materials, most often called standing-seam roofing, offer a clean, contemporary appearance. They are lightweight, weighing less than one-third the weight of your typical asphalt or fiberglass shingles.
Low maintenance. For those with little time to worry about maintaining their roof, metal roofs are perfect. They are low maintenance and can usually be installed over your existing roof (reroofing) if you want to change things up.
Cost effective. The possibility of roof leaks and ongoing roof repairs is significantly reduced with a metal roof, so your maintenance costs are likely to be lower. Metal roofs are energy efficient, so you may notice savings on your A/C and heating bills as well. you’re A/C and heating bills will be reduced as well. Metal roofing may seem expensive at first, but they ultimately pay for themselves.
