Why Choose a Metal Roof?

If you are looking to replace your existing roof, gathering information is an important first step. Here are some of the benefits of metal roofing: 

  • Long-lasting 
  • Lightweight 
  • Quick and easy installation
  • Durability 
  • Energy efficiency
  • Fire-resistant 
  • Good in any season or climate

Metal roofs are 100% recyclable and made with a minimum of 25% recycled materials. 

Metal Roof vs. Shingles

When most people picture a traditional roof over a home, shingles come to mind. But metal roofing has increased in popularity over the years. They are both capable of protecting you and your loved ones and can accentuate any style of home. 

If you are strictly comparing upfront costs, shingles will cost you less money. However, they tend to wear down faster than a metal roof and would need to be replaced sooner. Damp conditions can cause algae and fungus growth on shingle roofs, and in colder climates, ice can cause shingles to crack. 

Metal roof vs. shingles is also an easy calculation when it comes to installation difficulty. Shingles are relatively simple and take less time and expertise to install. Additionally, repairs for shingle roofs are easier. Metal roof installers need specialized knowledge and tools to complete the job and have less room for error. 

 

What is the Cost of Metal Roof Installation?

Several factors will determine the final cost of metal roof installation: the square footage of your home, the slope of your roof, and the metal roofing type you choose. Keep in mind that the total cost over time is actually lower than traditional roofing, because a metal roof will last longer. If you plan to stay in your home for many years, the investment in a metal roof makes sense. Our professional metal roof installers can help you make the best selections to fit your home.  

Metal Roofing Types

Not all metal roofs are the same. They are made from different materials, giving them unique features. 

Aluminum 

Aluminum is the most lightweight metal roofing type on the market today. It is corrosion-resistant and can easily be manipulated into different positions, giving you a variety of design options. 

Copper 

Copper is one of the most attractive metal roofing types. Like aluminum, it is lightweight and corrosion-resistant. It is easy for metal roof installers to place and will last a long time. Copper metal roofing is available in tiles, shingles, panels, and sheets. 

Steel 

Aluminum is the most lightweight metal roofing type on the market today. It is corrosion-resistant and can easily be manipulated into different positions, giving you a variety of design options. 

Zinc

Zinc probably isn’t the first metal to come to mind when you’re considering a metal roof. But, to copper, zinc has an attractive look to it. It is eco-friendly and known as a “lifetime roof” because it can last up to 100 years with proper installation and maintenance.

Exposed Fastener 5V Metal Roofing vs. Standing Seam Metal Roofing

Exposed fastener 5V metal roofing and standing seam metal roofing are the main styles of metal roofing panels you can choose between. 5V Crimp metal roofing panels have been providing durable roofing around the world for decades. Standing seam roof panels are often selected for the beautiful aesthetic they add to any structure. Exposed fastener 5V metal roofing is quicker to install and a more economical type of metal paneling. 

Aside from their appearance, another benefit of standing seam metal roofing is that the panels are less likely to leak. The installation process for standing seam metal roofing is a bit more complex than 5V Crimp metal roofing panels and requires the right roofing contractor with appropriate experience. Repairs to standing seam panels may require more time due to their complexity. 

Replacing your roof requires planning, budgeting, and making choices that are the best for your home. A metal roof installation may be more costly upfront, but will serve you for a long time. If you are ready for a metal roof installation, let us help you.
