The popularity of metal roofing for residential customers has increased year after year because of its unmatched benefits over traditional asphalt shingles.

Modern-day metal roofs can be installed on any structure and are both stronger and more durable.

Metal roofing is a great option that provides a variety of long-lasting benefits you won’t find in any other roofing material.

6 Reasons People are Choosing Metal Roofs

1. Durable and Long-Lasting – Metal roofs are made to last and protect your home for a lifetime. Literally. For most homeowners, a metal roof will be the only one you’ll ever install. When properly installed and maintained, a metal roof will last a minimum of 50 years, sometimes close to a century before it must be replaced.

2. Safe – Metal roofing totes several additional safety benefits, particularly in areas prone to wildfires. Metal can’t be cracked or broken from ice or hail and consistently earns the highest wind ratings. By providing the best protection – you can ensure your property is safe.

3. Energy-Efficient – Metal roofing is considered to be energy-efficient because it reflects nearly 100% of the radiant heat from the sun. This means that your metal roof will keep your home cooler in summer and reduce the energy used by up to 40 percent.

4. Lightweight and Easy Installation – In comparison to heavy shingles, slate, or other roofing alternatives, metal roof panels weigh significantly less. This lightweight option allows for easy and simple installation and relieves unnecessary stress on the structure of the house.

5. Eco-Friendly – Both the manufacturing and disposal process of metal roofing supports a small carbon footprint. Metal panels are manufactured using between 30 and 90 percent recycled materials. At the end of their life, they are 100 percent recyclable.

6. Low Maintenance – Metal roofing requires almost no maintenance. They do not require additional cleaning, coatings, or inspections. They do not crack or split in harsh weather, they are naturally resistant to corrosion, mold, and rot, and they stand up well to snow and ice. A metal roof is a strength you can rely on.

Types of Metal Roofs We Offer

Double Lock Standing Seam – This is similar to a standard standing seam roof, but adds more durability with a unique locking seam. We recommend this method for low-slope roofs that need to be extra weathertight because they fare better against the elements such as extreme temperatures and winds.

Double Lock Standing Seam is a more durable type of metal roofing, and it is significantly suitable for areas prone to extreme temperatures and winds.

Exposed Fastener – These types of metal roofs are installed by having the roof fastening materials applied directly into the structure through the metal panel.

There are 4 types of exposed fasteners that we install.

The R-Panel is a type of metal roofing extremely popular in the southwest regions, such as San Antonio.

R-Panel: Used for both walls and roofing, this type of metal roofing is especially popular for roofs in the southwest.

5V is a metal roofing type characterized by simplistic beauty and long-lasting design.

5V: Known for its original use in agricultural roofing, the simplistic beauty and durable design allows it to be applied to both residential and commercial products.

The corrugated metal roofing type is known for its low maintenance requirements and long-lasting features.

Corrugated: Made from steel coils, this metal roofing type is seen both painted and unpainted. It is known for its low maintenance and high durability.

The max-rib metal roofing type is popular for its aesthetic appeal and affordable prices.

Max-Rib: This is a low profile panel roofing that is known for its aesthetic appeal and low price point. It is very common and offered in a wide variety of coatings.

4 Signs You Need to Repair Your Metal Roof

1. Leaks – No roof leak should ever be left unattended. Metal roofing panels won’t crack, break, or puncture like shingles. If you have a leak it is likely a problem with the installation or a compromised seam. Leaks may be the result of corrosion and/or rust.

2. Loose Parts – Over time, the fasteners of your metal roof can get loose. While this is not typical, it is possible. If you hear unusual sounds coming from your attic during windy weather conditions, this can be a sign to have your roof inspected by a metal roofing professional to tighten things up.

3. Color Changes – There may be many reasons why your metal roof is changing colors. Some metal alloys will change color on their own over time. Other times you may have a protective coating that has worn off. A professional roofing contractor will be able to repair the discolored part and prevent any further damage to the roof’s surface.

4. Extreme Temperature Changes – The role of the roof is to protect you from weather elements and conditions. However, it is also responsible to maintain a steady temperature in your house and decrease the energy consumption. If you notice that you are suddenly experiencing extreme temperature changes inside your home, you should consider possible issues with the structure of your metal roof.

4 Signs You Need to Replace Your Metal Roof

1. Rust and Corrosion – If you notice any parts of your metal roof that is rusting, this is an indication that the roof has reached its lifespan and should be replaced. Corrosion can eat up the materials of your roofing over time, causing leaks in your attic or moisture in your walls. Rust and corrosion can sometimes be resolved with extensive repairs, but often a full replacement is inevitable.

2. Old Roofing Structure – If your roof is the same one installed by your parents (or grandparents), it’s probably old enough to consider replacing. While most metal roofs last 50 years or more, they do eventually run out and should be replaced to preserve the structure.

3. Repetitive Punctures – Metal roof punctures are rare, but they can happen, even if your metal roofing is quite sturdy. You can repair punctures, but this is only a temporary solution. If your metal roof has been punctured more than a few times, a new metal roof is a better solution.

4. Worn Paint – Metal roofs are painted with waterproof coatings to protect them from the elements. Once that paint wears out, you no longer have solid protection. They can be resealed a few times, but eventually, this deterioration will develop into more serious issues and cause leaks and rust.

FAQs About Metal Roofing

Yes. The ROI on metal roofing is unmatched by nearly any other home improvement project. If you can fit it into your budget, a metal roof will provide benefits now, savings in the future, and increase the overall value of your property.

Yes, you can install metal roofing panels directly on top of shingles, but we don’t recommend it. Removing the old roofing materials is the best way to inspect the roof decking and ensure proper installation.

The underlayment is responsible for protecting your roof decking from moisture. This may be a self-adhering membrane or other synthetic sheeting material. It’s important to use a high-quality underlayment to provide the best protection.
