What are the Advantages of Metal Roofing?
Metal Roofs Last Longer
Longevity is the primary reason among homeowners for choosing a metal roof! Their rust-proof coatings avoid cracking or corrosion, and there is less chance of a leak than with traditional roofing systems. Normally, metal roofs can last between 40 to 50 years after installation, but with proper maintenance and care, they can last as long as 70. These roofs last three times longer than traditional asphalt shingle roofs
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
Built with a variety of interlocking seam types that provide different protections, standing seam metal roofing may be the choice seam type needed to protect your building depending on your climate. Snap-lock, mechanical lock, and batten panel are just a few of the seam types available.
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.
Homeowners who choose traditional roofing materials such as shingles or wood shakes will eventually face the reality that those products will split, rot, and mold. But not so with metal shingles. They allow you to enjoy the aesthetics of your home without compromising your roof’s integrity.
Metal shingles combine distinctive looks, durability, and energy efficiency to create a roof system that will protect your home from all of life’s challenges. Whether a severe windstorm or rising energy costs, metal shingles are built to last and look good doing so.
29-Gauge Metal Roofing
You might think that these metal panels are identical to other similar roofing panels, but looks can be deceiving. 29-Gauge is a thinner, more cost-effective material, that still provides the durability benefits of metal. Fire-resistant, low maintenance, and protecting against corrosion, it’s a capable material for the cost-conscious consumer.
All this said, 29-Gauge is not without flaws. Its thinner composition does render it with lesser durability than higher gauge materials. Additionally, it may not stand up against harsh weather conditions as well as other materials. Consult our experts to see if the 29-Gauge metal is right for you.
