Metal Roofing

A metal roof is a roofing system made from metal piece, or tiles. In the United States, metal comprises 10% of the overall residential re-roofing market.

While the initial cost for a premium metal roof is higher than most other roofing materials, you'll save money in the long run. A metal roof can last a lifetime, whereas materials like asphalt require reproofing every 10 to 20 years. A metal roof can also increase the resale value of your home. - See more at: http://www.metalroofing.com/v2/content/metal-roofing/#sthash.9LirLpuc.dpuf

No matter what kind of roofing style, color or finish you have now, there's a metal roofing style to match. Today's metal roofing looks just like common roofing material such as asphalt shingle, clay tile, cedar shake or slate. However, metal lasts at least 2 to 3 times longer. - See more at: http://www.metalroofing.com/v2/content/metal-roofing/#sthash.9LirLpuc.dpuf

Long Lasting
The average life of a non-metal roof is 17 years. Asphalt can require re-roofing every 10 to 20 years, often sooner. But a metal roofing system offers unmatched durability, lasting 2 to 3 times longer. Chances are good that a metal roof will be the last roof you ever install on your home. - See more at: http://www.metalroofing.com/v2/content/metal-roofing/#sthash.9LirLpuc.dpuf

Energy Efficient
Metal roofing in both light and dark colors reflects heat effectively to reduce cooling loads in the summer and insulate homes during the winter. This can help to lower energy bills.

Longer Warranty
Most metal roofing comes with a true 30 to 50 year manufacturer warranty, plus a workmanship warranty from the installer.

What about lightning? A metal roof will not increase the likelihood of lightning striking your home. However, if your home were hit by lightning, your metal roof would disperse the energy safely throughout the structure. Since metal roofing isn't combustible or flammable, it's a low risk and desirable roofing option where severe weather is concerned, especially for lightning.

A common misconception is that a metal roof will be noisier than other types of roofing. When installed with solid sheathing, a metal roof on your home will actually silence noise from rain, hail and bad weather, many times much better than other roofing materials.

It will rust, right? Today's metal roofing systems are built to last. Steel metal roofing has a "metallic coating" made of either zinc or a combination of zinc and aluminum. This metallic coating prevents rust from forming and is bonded to the steel at the factory. Paint is then applied over the metallic coating to provide the long-lasting color homeowners desire.

In most cases, a metal roof can withstand decades of abuse from extreme weather like hail, high winds, and heavy snow. Today's systems also have a 150-mph wind rating (equal to an F2 tornado), meaning your metal roof is also safe from wind gusts that can accompany hailstorms.

Many people think you can't (or shouldn't) walk on a metal roof, but the truth is that you can safely walk on any metal roof without damaging it. Before you walk on your roof, however, we recommend you talk to your installed or roof manufacturer first. They will have the details on how to walk the particular roof you have, based on the style you chose and your roof pitch.

Metal roofs are built to last for life.
