About Metal Roofing

Metal roofing material was the norm long ago and helped pave the way for the pioneers as they needed cheap materials to build their new homes. Metal is durable, lightweight and portable if need be, and will last a long time as a roof.

It used to be that metal roofing was simply large sheets thrown on top of a building and secured the best way they could, but nowadays, things have changed. Metal roofing is making a comeback and with newer technology and design ideas, it can be a beautiful thing.

Different Colors & Styles

Metal roofing today comes in various colors and styles. It is installed professionally and will withstand the weather well. In higher elevations, it is a great option as the snow will just slide off. It is water resistant and fire retardant and no insect will ever attack a metal roof. It also is very resistant to the wind and hail. Metal can be stamped to mimic shingles in design or be large sheets. It can also come painted, coated or plain so there are many varieties to choose from.

Metal is recyclable which means that when it is time to replace your roof, you can simply recycle the metal into something else, no waste and no fuss. Because metal reflects the sun, it will remain cooler inside your house when you choose it, this will save you money on air conditioning as you are becoming more energy efficient.

Low Maintenance

These roofs need very little maintenance to keep looking good. Over time they develop a patina that will further protect the metal from corrosion and will continue to be a strong and sturdy option for many applications.

One of the drawbacks of a metal roof is that they can be loud, especially in a storm, and they do tend to contract and expand with the natural climate. When these roofs are installed, special care is taken to allow for these movements which should cut down on the noise factor.
