Benefits of Metal Roofing
Metal roofs are 100% recyclable and environmentally friendly. Something important to us as a company.
They also last longer than a traditional roof. Not to mention, metal roofs are a fantastic option for green-minded consumers as they can save up to 30% in energy costs.
Metal roofs are considered a long-term investment. They increase a home’s overall value and minimize maintenance costs. Metal roofs typically come with a 30-50-year warranty too. As a result, homeowners enjoy peace of mind.
Types of Metal Roofing
Our roofing company deals with several types of metal roofing. We have you covered from steel to aluminum and even classic tin roofs. Now, let’s look at a few of the most popular types in more detail.
Steel is traditionally recognized for its durability and strength. It has long been one of the most common materials used on commercial buildings and residential sites.
The creation of steel itself is an energy-intensive process. But based on its availability today, most of the steel we now use is made from recycled materials.
In fact, steel is one of the most recycled materials on the planet, making it a very eco-friendly material.
When you compare steel to other materials, it’s also very cost-efficient. It’s often priced lower than metals, such as aluminum, zinc, and copper.
While you might think of rust when considering a steel roof, this is hardly ever the case. A metallic coating goes over the steel to prevent damage, dramatically increasing its corrosion rating. Two popular choices for steel roofs are galvanized steel and galvalume.
Aluminum roofing is made of recycled materials but is more lightweight than a steel roof. It’s also highly pliable and incredibly long-lasting and is made out of recycled materials like old soda cans.
This metal looks great when it’s painted. Aluminum is one of the lightest metals used for roofing. Although its strength-to-weight ratio is among the most powerful of the “common” metals.
For this reason, a thinner piece of aluminum can often do the job of thicker metal.
This weight and thinness also mean aluminum roofing reserves the least amount of heat. So it quickly cools once it stops receiving direct sunlight. This feature helps cool a house in the summer.
In today’s modern metal roofing, tin roofs are rare. When people ask for a tin roof, they usually use the term interchangeably with metal roofing, steel roofing, or galvanized steel.
Tin is actually scarce, and unused in roofing at this point. If you’re looking to get an aged look to your roof, there are ways to get a patina finish without using tin.
We’ll get into natural materials next to help you find an aged look to your roof, naturally.
Natural Metal Roofing, Copper, And Zinc
Copper is a soft metal, which makes it among the quietest types of metal roofing. Copper can also be incredibly aesthetically pleasing, but it is pricey.
Zinc is probably the most energy-efficient material. Even more so than aluminum or steel. This is because it takes less energy to make the material, and it’s 100% recyclable. It’s an extremely moldable material and a favorite of many contractors.
Metal Roofing Styles
Standing seam metal roofs use a pattern of ridges or grooves on metal roofing sheets. This style uses vertical panels to create a smooth look for every roof pitch.
They’re called “standing seams” because each panel fully interlocks with the adjacent panel using a single ‘standing’ seam that opens and folds into place.
Standing seams are a popular option for homeowners. This is because of their durability and ability to shed snow and water during the long winter. Recoloring a standing seam is also a low-cost way to change the look of your roof without replacing the whole roof.
